My name is Claire Marie, and I live and create in Austin, Texas. 

Here are some thoughts:

1. New Orleans is my favorite place in the world.

2. I could eat tacos for every meal of every day and still love them.

3. I grew up in New Mexico making homemade ice cream, chasing blue tailed lizards, and building forts with my sister. The sweet life.

4. I quit my day-job a year ago, and it was the best decision I have ever made. I started my own business, and I would consider it very much to be 'controlled chaos.'

5. Favorite people include: Roald Dahl. Greg Vendetti. Robert Plant. Bing Crosby. Cab Calloway.

<< This was our kingdom growing up. Gondoliering through cacti and sage brush. (I'm the bald one on the left.)
