Welcome to my blog. I’m so glad you are here! My name is Marie and I’m a law professor, writer, quilling artist, illustrator, mom, wife, daughter, and friend. I’m always looking for and trying to create beauty in my life, and this blog is a way for me to share some of this beauty with you.
I find beauty in the love and laughter of my family and friends, my community, thoughtful conversations, play, learning, writing, long walks, and creative work. I also find beauty in nature, my garden, and delicious and nutritious food.
Follow me here for quilled art and illustrations, craft and decorating ideas and tutorials, favorite recipes, and occasional news related to my writing and art. Take a look around my website and if you like what you see, subscribe to my mailing list and follow me on Instagram. And, come back soon to see how I made this potted flower sugar cookie.
