About Lonie

Hi there and thanks for checking out my little corner of the internet! I who decided to start this blog to share my ideas, thoughts and enjoyment of crafting, DIY, decorating, cooking, baking, photography, and tidbits about my life.

I was born and raised in Green Bay and I lived in Milwaukee while I was in college. I’m a proud Wisconsinite and I love being from Green Bay. I think this little city is starting to come really into its own. There’s quite a lot that has changed since I moved back in 2004. It makes me excited to see what the future holds.

I would describe my design/decorating style as comfortable, eclectic, mixing modern and vintage, with a hints of rustic and European farm. I love mixing large masculine pieces (with sofas or chairs with nail head details) and soft, feminine accents, along with pieces that have a sentimental value (Wisconsin/Green Bay/Milwaukee centric pieces).

I’m also the owner of the Etsy shop The Crafty Llama by Lonie.

Recently, I took part in a craft fair as a vendor and this summer I’m looking forward to doing more in the future.

Facts and Tid-Bits:
    • I’m a HUGE Packer and Marquette fan.
    • I like to support local and other Wisconsin businesses.
    • I’m learning how to garden through trial and error (I knew I should have listened more to my mom when I had the chance).

I’m looking forward to share my creations with you and inspire you the way I’ve been inspired.
