Meet team Hedgie
Yep ... it's just me! I am a devoted fan of reading, napping, and kombucha. I am the founder, head designer, and does-everything gal. When not chasing the toddler. 👶🏻
- I am writing a book about motherhood, slated to be finished in 100 years.
- I was homeschooled (my supreme coolness makes sense now, right?)
- My favorite book is Crime and Punishment
- My favorite food is strawberry shortcake
Hello lovely hedgies! I run The Clever Clove from my home in the wet and beautiful Portland, OR. 🌲🌧 I do everything from designing products to photography to social media! ✍️📸💸
My husband Victor is my Chief Cheerleader Officer, and Baby Eleanor is my Cuteness Inspiration Associate. 👶🏻
Ever since I was a young girl, I dreamed of starting my own business ... from the flowers stands I set up as a 10-year old (with stolen flowers from mom's garden bed ... SORRY MAMA) to starting my own cleaning business at 19 years old to freelance web design. 💐 👩💻
I studied graphic design at college, and after a variety of design-related jobs over the years, I decided to start my own gig💡With just a handful of pins and a shockingly-pink Etsy shop, I launched The Clever Clove in 2017. I quit my day job after eight months and launched into my business full time. I am still shocked and delighted at how it has grown since then.
I've always wanted to be a stay-at-home mama but still pursue my artistic dreams, and this job has fulfilled that vision. 👩👧
Another deep desire of mine is that I use my business to give to others, rather than just accumulate for myself. It brings me abounding joy to support twelve lovely children through World Vision. Read more about it here. 💕
ALSO - who gets to draw plump hedgehogs for their job!?? 🦔 It's just too good ... sometimes I have to pinch myself! I am a strong believer in living a cozy and joyful life, and I hope my little creations bring that to you.
Thank you so much for being a part of my story. Love you all ❤️
