Profile: How Was Your Day?

Greta Brinkley

I’m Greta, and I do most of the writing and posting around here. I’m a 30-something West Coast native that is now Midwest based. What part of the West Coast, you ask? All of it! From stints that were just north of the Mexican border to just south of the Canadian border, I’ve lived everywhere. We even spent some time in the tropics!
Having those experiences has influenced my world views. I’m free-spirited, easy going, and always on the lookout for a great adventure. Be it food, fashion, travel, fun, or new products, I like to know about it. My tastes and personal style is very eclectic. I love Mid Century Modern design and color.
I love to create! I have used those skills to create products and projects for many manufacturers. I have had DIY projects published in books and magazines.
