Hi, I’m Emi!



I’m a writer and I make stuff. All kinds of things really, and I use the word “make” pretty loosely, as an all encompassing word – like “create”. I live in North Portland with my boyfriend, Kendall; the world’s prettiest cat, Weaslebee; as well as our newest addition, our pup, Devo. I also am the program associate for a local dog rescue called One Tail at a Time PDX. I volunteered for OTAT for a couple years before being hired on, and I cannot recommend the org enough for adoption or for volunteering – go check out the website for more info about us!

On my blog, you will find posts about everything I make. More often than not the post is what I’ve made that day, like when I write a movie review or poem or just post about my life or rant about politics. Other times, the post is about what I have made, like when I post about a new recipe I tried or a DIY project I undertook. Whenever I try something new that turns out well, I always post D.I.Y. instructions for you, too, because if you want to join in on the fun you should be able to.

Lastly, see what inspires me on Pinterest.

Enjoy! Thanks for stopping by!

P.S. I have an old blog presence at Monogrammedtowels – it’s mostly to do with my marriage to my now-ex (there are also some old posts on this blog that pertain to that, too). Check it out for boring TMI/overshare akin to my old livejournal posts (yes, I had one of those, too).

    Hey, I tagged you on my blog. You’ve got to list the 5 things you can’t leave the house without. C’mon! This is an easy post to cross off your list for the week.
