Hi, I'm Andrea - the co-founder, writer, photographer and designer for Crafting Connections - a blog, eCourse, and creative magazine for little ones and their grown-ups. I enjoy offering others the support and gentle guidance in crafting their own authentic, connected, and creative lives through making and personal reflection.

In addition to my own life-long experience as an artist and creative maker, I also bring my years of work as a clinical social worker and crisis therapist to my work with Crafting Connections and current freelance writing.

I am passionate about creativity, early childhood education, emotional well-being, and consider myself a life-long learner. I enjoy making new connections and seeing where new collaborations lead. Finally, I always see the silver linings, no matter what - promise!
