As my work and personal life continued to blend more and more, the concept of Crafting and Curating was developed. I’m on the verge of a lot that is new and a lot that is familiar. I’ve worked for ten years in higher education student affairs where my work has been focused on developing curriculum, creating solutions, and empowering student staff and professionals to excel in their roles. But a whole lot continued to exist between those moments. My experiences in recent years has brought to light the continued work many of us aim to do in our lives as a whole – living in on purpose and surrounding ourselves with experiences, relationships, and investments that matter and are life-giving.
Here is a space where I bring what I craft (actual creations in my Etsy shop), what I curate (the efforts, energies, and items I select that bring some combination of joy, improvement or good old fashioned efficiency), and what I’m learning along the way.
