My friends Christine and Rob gave me this great travel survival kit for my pending departure. It’s incredible how much stuff you need for 6 months away. The packing is the hardest part, for sure! I know I can buy (almost) whatever I need over there, but I’d like to start off at least somewhat […]

Artist, Traveler, Fun-Seeker
Who am I? I’m an artist, a jewelry designer, traveler, writer, beer lover and full time cookie maker.

I've started a cookie company called Short and Sweet Cookie.
