hi! my name is lilly, i am 27 years old, and i am an occupational therapist and avid crafter. i have loved just about every kind of crafts since i was a little girl, i have my mother to thank for that. i was exposed to many different types of crafting as a child and have grown to love and appreciate them very much. i have only taken a couple of art classes throughout my educational career, and would have liked to attend art school, however it wasn’t in the stars. as a result, i have turned to arts and crafts as a hobby — dabbling in drawing, painting, jewelry making, and most recently paper crafting, card making, and scrapbooking. i also enjoy interior design, home decor, and cooking/exploring the culinary arts.
i live in the new england area and while the weather changes every five minutes (on the dot) i wouldn’t change it for anything else! i have a 5 year old puggle, named santi, who is often the star of my photography and scrapbooking as he is so photogenic! he is mischevious, and an avid trouble maker but also the love of my life (well, the furriest anyways), and again, i wouldn’t change it for anything else!
about this blog
lillylaagedesigns (liˈlē•lōˈah•dəˈzīnz) blog came to fruition in late summer/early fall of 2010. after reading and being inspired by the many different craft blogs on the world wide web, i decided to try my hand at my own. this blog is both a creative outlet (of many different varieties) as well as an opportunity to share my creativity and inspire others in much the same way others have been inspiring me over the years.
