Hi! I’m Deanna. Welcome to Little Green Bow, my little corner of the web where I’m discovering how to live a healthy, creative, authentic life one DIY project at a time. I hope my projects and adventures will inspire you to create your ideal life too.

I started Little Green Bow as a complement to my Etsy shop, but it is quickly taking over as my favorite way to spend my “me time”. Aside from blogging I have an Internet start up called RentMonitor with my husband. Our software makes it easy to collect rent online.

I grew up in Southern California and since turning 20 have lived in (listed in order) Fort Worth, TX, Long Beach, CA, Waterloo, IA, Chicago, IL and Boulder, CO.

I love traveling, chatting over coffee, trying new things, and finding ways to meld my creative and analytical sides. In my life family comes first, I treat people and the environment with respect, I live a healthy life but believe in moderation, and I strive to live everyday to the fullest.

Life is an adventure! I hope you’ll join me.
