About One Swell Studio

I'm a small town girl, living with my husband & our two rambunctious boys in the hills of western Pennsylvania. Between our two boys & our two pups, I'm constantly being kept on my toes. I couldn't survive without iced coffee and re-runs of "The Office."

Cara, thanks so much for the kind words about my "You Do You" entry for the PBK challenge. Yay, another Western Pennsylvania Mintie! I was down your way just the other day. Maybe we'll be able to get enough of us together for a Western PA Minted meetup someday?
