Mom to J & C, lover of all things design, sweetie to B, wine & champagne educator, dreamer, sun seeker, animal lover and best friend to my little companions Molly, Richard & Stella.
I’ve always had a creative side for as long as I can remember. Very much a busy bee as a child and it just got worse (or better) as I got older! When my daughter was a few months old I realized I could be a ‘do it yourself’ kind of girl. It was a hot record breaking temperature day and her room was extremely warm, I purchased a ceiling fan, turned the power off and hours later – she had a ceiling fan! I basically felt I could fix or do anything that was related to my house. That was 20 years ago! A few renovations later, I am famous for hauling carpet out the patio door, hammering away at tile removal or hanging wallpaper. I would pay my bookkeeper by painting her bathroom! Proud to say I can cut a paint line in like a champ.
At the age of 39 I went back to school and started Crystal Nohr Design. I have since learned how to build 3 websites, how to file my own taxes and be my own bookkeeper – the internet is a wonderful learning tool for entrepenuers. I’ve also learned I talk to cats in my yoga pants some days more than I see humans! I decided a blog was my next adventure!
A little more about me…
Loyal Bachelor fan since Trista! Don’t mess with me on Monday nights if it’s on! I’m afraid of public speaking but actually feel I’m getting better! Say what??!! I have a love for anything feminine and timeless. I also have a secret crush on Rachel Ashwell & Jillian Harris. I appreciate a well-balanced Gin cocktail, the perfect glass of chilled pale Rose on a hot summer day and I’m always on the pursuit for a Pinot Noir that brings me pure bliss! Great parties with great friends is a must and I love making my friends and family laugh! I can’t handle clutter and I believe there is a place for everything! I don’t really like ice cream but a bag of sour candies will do. Sunday Brunches and Champagne are mandatory!
Did I mention my love affair with party planning!!?? Gets my heart racing!
