Laura Plouzek

hello there friends.

 

My name is laura and I am a maker, a mama, a cookie baker, and a bike rider.  I used to be a high school art teacher (and loved it) and then I fell in love with a piano-playing-bow-tie-wearing-motorcycle-riding gentleman who also happened to be a sailor.  We're married with two kiddos (Jack Danger & Ginger Darling) now and I run my little business making bow ties and journals out of our living room.  I like chocolate ganache, thrifting, pom-poms, journal-keeping, photography, and stripey socks.
