My husband and I own a business where we take discarded books and transform them into functional art. I guess we're artists, you could say :) Using books, we make cases for ereaders and tablets, clocks, and picture frames and we sell them both locally and throughout cyberspace. We have a beautiful little boy named Emmett (age 2) that we try to spend as much time with as we can. We're pretty mellow for the most part and we really enjoy getting to know new places slowly so that we don't feel too overwhelmed. We always try to be respectful wherever we go and make sure our son understands the importance of respecting the things and people around him as well.
