Updated: Oct 20


You know one of my big passions is plants. I have plants all over my house and find every opportunity to add more (whether my husband approves or not). Developing my green thumb took a long time and sadly, I killed countless plants before figuring out how to care for my little urban jungle. My original plant disasters led me to started stitching plants.
