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 an apartment with my husband, two sons, and two cats.

Make quilts.

Stitch things by hand.

Make paper collages once in a blue moon.

Throw awesome themed birthday parties for my kids (but not every year).

Generally just love to make things.  Inspired by everything, full of ideas, fighting to find the time to make them all.
