Inspired Intern: Meet Erin!

March 18, 2010

As you know, a couple weeks ago I set out to find myself an intern. Well, thanks to the wonderful world that is the interwebs, I search no longer. Actually, Erin signed on less than a week after I posted my announcement (no point in wasting any time, right?) and I’m thrilled to finally be able to introduce her! Erin, world. World – meet Erin!

– – –

Hi there. My name is Erin and I’ve taken on the exciting role as Flights of Fancy’s intern. By day I am a stay at home mom, but by night I am a designer/blogger (it makes me sound like a supper hero when I say it like that).

I find inspiration in everything around me. My style is simple, a “less is more” type of gal, so this weeks inspiration is just that. I hope you like!

By the way, Erin will be joining us every once in a while to share her latest inspirations but if you’d like to see more of her in the meantime, check out her blog.

Great to have you here Erin!
