Tell us more about you and your business

I have a BFA and worked as a graphic designer for an ad agency in Boston. I started freelancing when my kids were born. I found that I wanted to pursue more creative outlets so I began my blog as a way to explore interior design, fashion trends, DIY projects and promote my Etsy shop.

What people don’t realize about running a creative business is…

     It takes a lot of planning and strategic marketing.

  1. More about the technical aspect of blogging
  2. How to use social media in conjunction with my blog
  3. Not to compare me to other bloggers

What’s been your most memorable moment as a blogger?

When my refurbished folding chairs were features on Country Living digital.

What’s been your favorite post you’ve worked on?
