Marquette is a true renaissance woman with several degrees encompassing studies in English, Thematic Studies, and Secondary Education. She recently became a mother and is learning all sorts of wondrous new things. She has an eye for photography and loves taking her camera everywhere. Her photography adventures have taken her on travels all around the United States, and introduced her to all sorts of colorful people. When she isn't playing with "Merle" (her son), she is fiddling with a camera, crocheting, painting, cooking, reading, and of course blogging. She also finds the time in her busy schedule to dabble in music (including but not limited to choir, piano, and even the occasional oboe rock session, don’t tell her we told you…). With a employment history in the world of astronomy, quilt stores, youth leaderships camps, and national parks service she has acquired a wide range of knowledge in many differing fields. All in all her many DIY quests have helped her gain a thorough knowledge of the crafting world along with her other hobbies, she is a great resource for any homemaking adventure.
Emilee may possibly be the most stylish biologist out there with degrees in Cosmetology, Biology and Forestry; her style is truly “Blinged out Nature”. She is currently working on a degree in Environmental Sustainability and rocking the university in the process. You can spot her anywhere with her fun colored hair and brightly accessorized outfits. Whether Emilee is hiking along a river looking for Chiricahua Leopard Frogs, creating a great up-do, teaching dance to the masses, or chasing after her Hedgehog “Gypsy”, fun and excitement surround her. With a background in dance team, ballet, FFA, Zumba, biological research, Phillies games, painting and a passion for peacocks, Emilee brings great experience, knowledge and fun to the blog (and all those around her). If you need anything glitterfied or blinged out, Em is definitely your girl.
Emilee and Marquette have been inseparable partners-in-crime since the summer of 2006,but this is not where the adventures began. Before this time their families had been connected for years ensuring that these two girls would grow up in the same town, go to the same church, and enjoy the same family activities, including, but not limited to, their mothers crafting lifestyle (it runs in the family, these ladies are cousins along with being best friends). After a stint of being roommates, the two have continued to embark on escapades of epic proportions. Together they have been to the beaches of San Diego, the Enchanting Land of New Mexico, and the Deserts of Arizona, ranging from mountainous camping trips, American history tours and any and all sort of girlish silliness. A day out with Marquette and Em can include anything from Jane Austen-esque movies and nail polish, to perusing the hidden depths of the Antique Mall, to oohing over anything orange, or even inner-tubing down a river of mud.
