I love beauty. I love creating beautiful things. I’m passionate about creating beauty with a purpose, and I’m using my blog to help me find that purpose. I created A Beautiful Idea in 2010 to give artists a chance to create what they love to help others.

On this blog you’ll find lots of inspiration, DIY projects, art, and my own personal musings about life, motherhood, and being an artist.

I moonlight as a graphic/web designer for my husband and I’s company, Create Etc.

By day, I’m a mother of two sweet little boys, 2.5 and 1 year old. I try to devote all my day to nurturing, teaching and raising them.

Thank you for visiting!

Love of beauty is taste. Creation of beauty is art.
