Lydia, Oh Lydia, Oh have you met Lydia!!!

My name is Lydia.

I’m originally from the East Coast, but have been living in Southern California for almost 8 years.

I still feel like I’m visiting.

I married my husband in October of 2005 and have loved every moment ever since we got hitched. With the married life has come many excuses to cook and bake. I have always loved to cook and bake, beginning as a little girl with bowl-cut hair and buckteeth. I believe it started in my Grandmom Ruth’s kitchen, at the age of 7 or so, baking chocolate chip cookies.

I have never looked back, but I have grown out my hair and gotten braces. Thank the Lord!!

Along with cooking and baking, I have always loved art. I don’t like using the word, “crafts”, but I guess I like them too. “Crafts” remind me of those cheesy projects you’d do at summer camp with dried macaroni noodles and yarn.

In the Spring of 2007, after a long few years of schooling, I graduated from San Diego State University in Liberal Studies (basically Elementary Education) with a specialization in Studio Art.

I have had many dreams in life. One was to be an Elementary School teacher, another was to be an Elementary Art teacher,… I’ve always wanted to be a chef, pastry chef, or baker,….on top of that, I’ve always wanted to make invitations and announcements for special events, stationery for those who appreciate the handwritten note, and selling crafty things I make.


I always wanted to get married, be a wife, and have lots of cute little kids.
