About Me

I’m Michelle, writer and creator of OMC. I started this blog as a fun project for myself. A creative way to share two of my favorite things – food and crafts.

This is me - This is my dog, Riply!

When I’m not baking or crafting, I am a full time advertising gal, managing clients at a Chicago ad agency. Originally from New Jersey, I moved to the midwest for college and then dispite moving to the East Coast afterwards, I got pulled back by my now husband, Zach.

If you can’t tell already, I am also a proud dog mom. We got Riply together in 2016, naming her after Ellen Ripley of Aliens. We accidently mispelled our Riply’s name when making her first dog tag and just decided to roll with it.

Do Something Creative Every Day

I am most happy when I am creating something. That could be as simple as trying a new recipe for dinner or a bigger project like refurbishing a console table. To make something is to put your heart and soul into it and it’s kind of amazing. Not every creation is a success 😝 but hopefully you get joy out of the journey regardless. I hope you enjoy all the things I share here because it’s certainly been a delight for me.
