my name is emily matusek and i am the creator of this blog. while i'm not sure where this may take me, my advertising professor said it would be a good idea to start a blog. so here i am. 


a little about me: i love to create. i love to use my hands and my head to put something together. some of my more specific favorite things include (but never limited to) drawing, painting, sewing, crafting, gardening, decorating, & designing.


i'm a college student at the university of illinois: urbana-champaign currently studying advertising and minoring in art & design. i hope to be an art director one day. that is, if this blog thing doesn't make me millions. 


i was born and raised in mchenry, illinois, a far northwest suburb of chicago. i have a wonderful family of four, which includes my parents, me, and my brother. also, my furry siblings pumpkin the cat and jack the dog. 


i am a proud old soul, disney nerd, & delta zeta. i would describe myself as creative, classic, and content. 


don't ask me what i'm looking to get out of this blog because i couldn't tell you. instead, i'll just list some of my interests and ideas for the blog & if something catches your eye, stick around. (this is where the "collection of things" comes in!)
