Mom wanted to name me DeLorean.
Grandma didn’t want me named after a car.
No, that’s “too difficult,” they decided.
Let’s make it Laurie with an N.
Feel free to call me Lo. You may know me as Dame DuhLaurien of the No Agenda Roundtable or “Little Growing Flower.” But in my house, I’m “Mum-mum” to three mini aussiedoodles and two tiny human resources.
When I was five, I wanted to be a pirate rock n’ roll singer with an archaeological past time. Well, I’m sure on my way.
I’m a thrifty mixed media artist with a love for road trips. Currently, I live in the Heart of America: Kansas City, Missouri. You’ll find me exploring the city with my family, perusing secondhand shops, ruminating at an estate sale, haggling with gemstone dealers or trash into treasure at home.
In college, I started a project called The American Dreams, selling handmade dreamcatchers. But web weaving is only one of my many hobbies, so I decided it was time to expand.
Here, on my personal website, you can view and purchase handmade creations, peruse my collections of thingamajigs, find inspiration in my personal reflections and travels, recipes, DIY tutorials or just enjoy all the pretty pictures.
