vanlikethecar. madebyvan. crafty consultant.
I'm a mom, milspouse, crafter, baker, eater, and eternal optimist. I am a maker. My day job includes looking at maps and contracts and lots of emails. But my passion and joy comes from paper and stamps and thread and fabric and all things crafty. I started scrapbooking in 2009. This turned into a love of all paper crafts. And in 2019, I started sewing and machine embroidery.
Welcome to my little slice of the inter-web to share the things I make and the stories behind them.
I also host the Life at Anchor Podcast. Please visit the podcast homepage for where to listen!
