« around here. | Main | project life 2013 : week 16. »


My name is Elise Blaha Cripe. I live in San Diego, California with my husband and young daughter.

I make stuff like it's my job.

I own a shop where I sell rad handmade items. This blog is where I share general life musings, insight into being a small business owner and the occasional craft project.

If you're new here, I invite you to browse the archives, read my small business story or start with some of my favorite things to write about, DIY home decor & goal-setting. You can also listen to my motivational speech about the power of making bold statements.

Still looking for more content? Subscribe to my weekly creative podcast, ELISE GETS CRAFTY.

Thank you so much for dropping by.
