Hi! I'm an architectural designer and artist caring for my two sets of twins in Lawrenceville, GA. I have found ways to build experience and feeling through a carefully constructed environment for them.  Four Little Thiiiings explores design that will teach children to do things for themselves. 

In trying to organize our home to have fun learning with four kids,  the most important thing I came to cherish was time.  We all need it.  We all want it.  I have been able to make extra time by applying design to parenthood.  I began this site as an easy reference for friends asking for advice.  By filtering the most important points into small lists of four items, I hope to give inspiration to environment-makers without taking a lot of their time.
