Welcome to Thorn and Thimble!

Thorn and Thimble was launched in 2017 to bring some realness to the pristine, perfection-obsessed blogging world. Our aim is to reveal the failures and successes in attempting to create a curated life. This blog is for anyone who isn’t afraid to have a stab at cooking and making things with their hands and hearts.


(pronounced “Shannon”)

I’m a designer and writer living in Los Angeles. However, those clichés don’t encompass or define my spirit. A firecracker and a hopeless romantic, I love learning and devote a lot of time to new crafts and skills. Much of that I’ll share here. My pagan heart brings me into the lives of many people, and my adventurous spirit takes me around the world with my husband.


I wear a lot of hats; these are my favorites.

When I began to get busy creating a happy and handmade home, I found a greater connection to these interests, as well as myself and my path. This changed my relationship with my heart, guiding me toward a healthier outlook on what it means to live my “best life.” To me, that doesn’t mean living in or presenting perfection. It’s about aspiring to improve daily, step-by-step.

This revelation inspired me to share the freedom I found by telling my story, coaching others, and learning every day. Through Thorn and Thimble, I’ve set out to determine how we can bring balance to ourselves and the world.  I am happiest when I’m working with other human beings and using my skills to create. Let’s make something together.
