Susan Reader

Midwest United States

I am a mother of three wonderful boys with a new daughter-in-law who joined our family a year ago last May (*wave to Brandi), and surviving a year in our quirky, fun-loving, never-a-dull-moment family is quite the feat. :)

As an artist, I dabble. I doodle. And I draw. Over the years, I have developed a strong love for hats, shabby chic, french country, ivy, antiques, old books & brick buildings and trees... I love trees and as a child, I climbed them every chance I could. I would swing for hours. There was something so calming about going back and forth. I found solace in the motion. Maybe, that's why when we get old we love rocking chairs, you think? Perhaps. I know I will.

These are the simple things I try to entwine into a humble little collection I created almost 20 years ago... Twenty years? Let's see ~ (large intake of breath) goodness me!

No wonder my creative bones itch to get back to designing a special place I lovingly named "Ivy & Innocence." And, so, my return journey has begun. I invite you to join my venture. You won't be disappointed. :)
