I'm Laura and this is my website.

Born and raised in Metamora, Illinois, a small town where Abraham Lincoln used to stop by and do lawyer stuff.

Currently live in Oak Park, Illinois, which borders Chicago on the west side. Claims to fame include  Frank Lloyd Wright, Ernest Hemingway, Betty White, and Tavi Gevinson.

Share a home with my husband, two kids, and two cats.

Make quilts.

Stitch things by hand.

Make paper collages once in a blue moon.

Throw outrageous, elaborate themed birthday parties for my kids (but not every year).

Currently back in school to finish my undergrad after a 15 year hiatus. Perhaps a master's in art therapy after that. 

Generally just love to make things.  Inspired by everything, full of ideas, never enough time but oh well.
