Have no fear....
Design Mommy is here!
We have a new contributor to the site- Lindsay Jewell of A wooden nest. I'm excited to have her as part of the team! Of course I forgot to mention Rachel of Camp Smartypants coming on board, and she has already got my brain storming.
Originally uttered the words, "Help me! Design Mommy!" in 2008 while working with Alison at a design company in Seattle, WA. Since then she's always turned to Alison for advice and constructive criticism whenever she's in need of a fresh eye and an honest opinion.
Rachel currently lives in Portland, Oregon where she works as freelance graphic designer and small crafty business owner by day and busser at a fine dining restaurant by night. She is the creator of Camp Smartypants, a line of women's clothing, accessories, and paper goods. She's obsessed with bright colors, thrifting, feathers, crafts, stickers, markers, hosting parties, eating good food, and laughing with friends.

Lindsay was born in Sweet Home, Oregon, but has lived in Portland, Oregon for the last sixteen years. She recently graduated from Portland State University with a BA in English, and is currently building a writing portfolio for her freelance business while dabbling in various arts and crafts. She is obsessed with food, homemade bread, books, films, second-hand linens, paper, pretty thrifted mugs and her fluffy feline.
