Meet the Maker
Hey and welcome to my little world! What can I tell you about myself? I reside in North Georgia where I was born and raised. I’m in my mid-30’s (how the heck did that happen?!?!), I am a wife to Blake – we met in High School and got married in 2011. He’s my balance in life – I can be a lot to handle and he rolls with it…well, most of the time.
We welcomed our sweet baby boy, Bennett, in February 2017. He brings more love and laughter to our lives than I ever imagined possible. We’re constantly learning about this whole parenting world and navigating it the best we can.
In addition to being a human mommy, I’m also a dog mom to Maggie, Mollie and Ripley. They are the epitome of unconventional love.
While my priority #1 in life is my family, this Momma has to help pay the bills! I have worked in the dental field for the last 17+ years and currently work full-time as an office manager at a private practice here in North Atlanta. In addition to my full time gig, I’ve been running this "side business" since 2013. I've had a successful Etsy shop during that time in addition to selling to local customers in my hometown, but decided in 2018 to expand my horizons and use my website to display my designs vs just re-directing folks to Etsy, so...here we are! :)
I am a self proclaimed crafter – I am always making little craft projects for display in my home or as gifts to others! In early 2012, I decided to make some blocks that would spell out my niece Tatum’s name…and as any girl would, I posted it on Facebook for all my friends to see! From that point on, friends started asking me to make sets for them, which led to friends of friends ordering. So a little gift for Tatum turned into what is now Wooden Heart Designs. I wouldn’t be able to make these creations without the help of my husband who used to cut and sand all of the wood for me when our business was more "wooden" based, but now he jumps in and acts as my assistant when necessary... whether it's picking up blank shirts from Fedex to helping me with packing and shipping during the busy season. We make a perfect team and each item we make is a true labor of love!
From our Heart to Yours,
