  • What is your favorite creation you've made at Inspirations?

A set of stacking mugs I made for my parents and siblings. All are painted in blues and greens and when stacked they perfectly fit together to read the chorus of "Lean On Me". The design is pretty simple but they are my favorite because the song means a lot to my family.

  • What is the best part about owning Inspirations?

Having the power to create positive experiences for others! I found purpose and fulfillment building this business and that is all because of you. Spending quality time and creating memories with my loved ones is what matters most to me in life, and is also my motivation behind Inspirations.

Something specific I need to include for my favorite part of my job is hosting kids birthday parties! I have always had a passion for working with kids and am so lucky to be in the position to connect with so many.

Having meaningful and fun conversations, teaching them creative techniques, playing games and ultimately helping them find confidence in themselves.

  • What is your favorite paint/glaze color?​​

For underglaze it is a tie between Teal We Meet Again and Leap Frog, my favorite matte glaze is Vanilla Spice and favorite specialty glaze is Mocha Marble.

  • What is your go-to cafe drink?

White chocolate americano topped with oat milk and caramel sauce drizzle.

  • How do you spend your time off work?

I spend a lot of time hanging out with my mom, fiancé and other family. Usually running errands together, watching our favorite tv shows and sipping on lots of coffee.

  • Favorite song on Inspirations Spotify playlist?

Feather and I made the playlist so it is full of songs that I love. My favorite right now is Still by Seinabo Sey - fans of the tv show New Girl go listen :)

  • Favorite time of year?

I really love all seasons and am thankful to live in Wenatchee where we get a bit of spring, summer, fall and winter. If I had to choose I'd say fall. It's the perfect time for foamy espresso drinks, the weather isn't too cold but great for fuzzy socks, boots and cozy clothes. It's football season and the holidays are approaching! Thanksgiving and Christmas are my favorites, so I like to get into the holiday spirit early and cherish all the family memories.

  • What is your favorite creation you've made at Inspirations?

I painted a 3" circle tile as a memorial piece for my sister and her family, which she absolutely loved! It was also a reminder in the midst of heartache and loss God has bigger and better plans and blessing ahead of them.

  • What is the best part about working at Inspirations?

Of course working with the best coworkers Jenn and Nicole! I have definitely enjoyed kids camps, which we recently held in April 2023 and last December. It was a really great turn out and lots of fun teaching them new technique, the students get so thrilled about their pieces!

  • What is your favorite paint/glaze color?​​

OOOH it would have to be the underglaze Sammy Salmon and the specialty glaze Mystic Jade.

  • What is your go-to cafe drink?

A Red Bull with Guava and Pineapple flavor.

  • How do you spend your time off work?

I don't have pets or kids so I have a lot of spare time on my days off. I enjoy video games, board games, canvas painting and if there is a chance of sunshine I like to enjoy the outdoors. I love spending time with my family and my many many siblings and in-laws, nieces and nephews. When my husband and I are off together we LOVE watching movies, stand-up or exploring the great outdoors together!

  • Favorite song on Inspirations Spotify playlist?

I love Grace Alone by Kinds Kaleidoscope. They are actually one of my favorite artists. FUN FACT there are from Seattle, WA.

  • Favorite time of year?

I was born and raised here in Wenatchee so I've been accustomed to the chaotic four seasons we get in one month, weekly or the regular four seasons. I absolutely love all the seasons we get to experience here in the valley. My favorite would have to be the Summer! I love being in the water, boating, hiking, backyard volleyball with family and BBQs.

  • What is your favorite creation you've made at Inspirations?

It's a toss up between a utensil holder and a set of pasta bowls. The utensil holder is dusty pink color with five women on it (it's the sample picture for our utensil holder) and I love it so much, on the other hand my pasta bowls are abstract and beautiful with single line drawings and morse code on them. I can't choose which one I like more.

  • What is the best part about working at Inspirations?

Being in a creative environment. As a creative, my dream has always been to work somewhere that allowed me to use my artistic ability, and Inspirations is the perfect place for that! It's also amazing to help customers find their creativity, especially if they come in doubting their abilities.

  • What is your favorite paint/glaze color?​​

Dusty Sage for our matte glazes, Riverstone is my favorite specialty glaze, and for our underglazes it has to be Old Yeller.

  • What is your go-to cafe drink?

Hands down lavender lemonade!

  • How do you spend your time off work?

I'm either making something, being a photographer, or getting way too competitive over board/card games with my family.

  • Favorite song on Inspirations Spotify Playlist?

For the moment it's Come On Up To The House by Joseph, but it's subject to change on the daily.
