What’s your favorite creative outlet?: Being able to sit down and design with no pressure or demands. Doing it at my own pace and being able to have the time to really study the colors and the layout. I am a full time interior designer and do a lot of design work for flooring and interiors. So this is a very relaxing way to do something I love for myself T
