Hi, I'm Aly and I am so happy you are here!
Can I tell you a not-so-secret secret? I LOVE creating; I'm partial to painting and creating jewelry these days, but really anything that lets me get down and dirty with art supplies is my jam.
If you spend more than a few minutes with me, you'll find that I have an unhealthy love of iced tea, happy snail mail, and Swedish Fish. Sometimes I can seem like a walking contradiction; I'm a hippie at heart but also have my mothers' twisted and inappropriate sense of humor. I'll listen to Frank Sinatra one minute and Run-D.M.C. the next. I love Coco Chanel and Banksy just the same.
Oh, and sometimes I drop the F bomb.
I'm pretty shy at first but if we met in real life, I'd probably tell you my favorite joke and send you a hand written love letter in the mail. I believe that a little kindness goes a long way and that brunch should be its own food group. I’m an eternal optimist and think that a conversation and a cup of tea shared with a friend can solve almost any problem.
I’m the girl that got in trouble in school for being too much of a daydreamer, and some things never change. These days I dream about exploring old abandoned buildings and dying my hair cotton candy pink.
Creating for me, is like breathing...it’s just something I have to do. It still feels like utter magic every time I get a new creative idea - I have books and books filled with ideas I can't wait to bring to life!
Creating is my passion - it pulses through my body and spills into every aspect of my life.
I believe that I am here to create and to love and encourage others. That’s my purpose, both here in this little corner of the internet as well as on this blue and green dot in the star studded abyss.
I am so grateful that I get to share my passion with you.
I hope you find something here that inspires you today!
