About Me

. : mLe ink : . is a one-chick show run by me--mLe! Or in normal-people world: Emily. I started this blog after years of crafting, reading, writing, and just plain old creating as a way to share my ideas, post my projects, learn from others, and connect with all the creative and wonderful people out there; in other words YOU! If you have the endless desire need to make, create, design, fix, upcycle, and just see what awesome creations others are whipping up this very second, you've come to the right place! You'll hopefully find it all right here, with some humor and lessons learned thrown in along the way.

Being a graduate student, the aim of my life is two-fold: survive/earn my degree, and enjoy my life and the space I occupy while I do it. This blog is a space to share what I learn along way, from the awesome, to the not-so-awesome. My ultimate goal is to share not only my original projects and ideas, but help connect other creators/DIYers/life-lovers with one another's unique and helpful undertakings and lifestyles, all while upholding the notion that things don't need to be overly complicated or expensive to be beautiful, fun, and/or enjoyable.

At . : mLe ink : ., you'll find posts on everything from furniture before-and-afters, to papercraft projects, to simple recipes, to great ideas for living simply, to musings on life and creativity. This place is an outlet for me, but also a place to share, learn, and connect with one another.

So what are you waiting for? Go ahead, kick back, and see what there is to see!
