Welcome to Embellish, my online scrapbook of do-it-yourself craft tutorials, my little wandering travels, art I’ve created, and bits and pieces of life in between – overall it’s a blog on all things handmade & lovely.
All my life I have found enjoyment in creating and arranging lovely things. For as long as I can remember my grandmother has gifted my mmm a yearly subscription to Martha Stewart Living. Each month I devoured (and still do!) the magazines – more for the gorgeous layouts of photos and type then the articles’ contents, however I loved the included craft projects! My mom, who studied textile design in college, constantly encouraged creativity. I grew up exploring many mediums at home and in local classes – watercolors, acrylics, pottery, collage, calligraphy, and more.
In 2010 I discovered blogging and started my own. Having a blog has given me a creative outlet to explore being a content creator. Creating my site and it’s contents showed me what I truly enjoy doing. Even more than consuming well laid out images and type, I love designing it myself! In 2014 I went from a small Ontario, country village to the Greater Toronto Area (and navigating its bus system!) in order to study art and design. Though I don’t know exactly what I want for my career, I am excited for the journey knowing that I will be pursuing what God has given me an enjoyment for.
My faves: Jesus Christ, family, sunlight, pretty photos, green tea, cake, cream cheese icing, painting, big blooms, thoughtful notes, Proverbs 4:18.
Thank You for Visiting!
