ABOUT ME

Hey there, I'm Heidi!

 
I'm a midwest girl married to a midwest boy (Lucas) and we have 4 smart, sassy midwest kids! We're currently living in the middle of nowhere in northwest Missouri, where I have a pretty sweet gig at Missouri Star Quilt Company doing social media, marketing, product merchandising, Facebook Live videos... I've even written lyrics for a couple of promo videos, so you just never know what each day will bring and I love it.
 
One of my favorite things about working in the quilting industry is the fabric. It's pretty and it's soft and I just want to love it and pet it and hoard it and replace all my friends with fabric versions of them... okay whoa, that got out of hand pretty quickly there, but it really is pretty great!
 
I am the co-creator and Creative Director of Prairie Sweet Boutique, an online design resource for photographers and papercrafters, which was founded in August of 2012. We offer Photoshop Templates for cards, albums, and more; digital papers, design kits and clip arts, and our inventory is always growing!  I love being able to design beautiful things that enhance something as meaningful as a portrait or family photo.
I never thought I'd be working in the field of visual arts, as I spent all of my time in high school and college developing my musical talents.  I'm grateful to have found so much joy in my work.
 
I sincerely believe that we make the time for the things (and people) that are most important to us. For me, creativity is vital. It helps me keep my head on straight and my life balanced. I actually NEED to craft all the things. 😉
 
"You may think you don’t have talents, but that is a false assumption, for we all have talents and gifts, every one of us. The bounds of creativity extend far beyond the limits of a canvas or a sheet of paper and do not require a brush, a pen, or the keys of a piano. Creation means bringing into existence something that did not exist before – colorful gardens, harmonious homes, family memories, flowing laughter. What you create doesn’t have to be perfect… Don’t let the voices of critics paralyze you – whether that voice comes from the outside or the inside. If you still feel incapable of creating, start small. Try to see how many smiles you can create, write a letter of appreciation, learn a new skill, identify a space and beautify it."
--Dieter F. Uchtdorf
