Hello and welcome to my blog. My name is Alice Wingerden and I live in Fairport, NY with my husband, Joshua and our three children: Hazel (7), Owen (5) and Violet who will be two in November. We live in a 1970’s colonial that we are making our own, one project at a time. We have three guinea pigs that we adore: Shadow, Taco and Prince Harry!

I have had a passion for art and creativity since I was a young child. After earning a bachelor’s degree in psychology, I wasn’t able to find a job in my field that felt like the right one, so I decided to follow my artistic passions and began selling my artwork online in 2005. This gradually evolved to various pursuits: Etsy and web shops, graphic design, selling vintage and handmade goods, and eventually blogging and photography as my main creative focus. I enjoy sharing tutorials, room makeovers and my own unique style with my readers.

These days I spend most of my creative time decorating our home, designing dollhouses and miniatures in my own eclectic style and photographing whatever strikes my fancy (currently my guinea pigs! check them out over at their “official” instagram account.

Whether it be a blessing or a curse, my artist’s soul longs to follow my creative whims wherever they may take me. I hope you enjoy following along and find some inspiration on the journey.
