Interview + Giveaway with Heidi from Row House 14 – CLOSED

Your blog/shop name + link: Row House 14 //rowhouse14.blogspot.com

What can we find in your blog / shop? 

I blog about design, music, food, fashion, travel, and just about anything else that I love. I also love sharing my new stationery and greeting card designs with my readers. They’re kind of my guinea pigs and give me lots of feedback on my work!

7 Random Facts About You: 

1. I teach 7th and 8th graders full time in Baltimore City. These kids are the hardest age group to work with, but they’re also pretty amazing and I wouldn’t want to teach any other age group.

2. I am camera shy. I love being behind the camera, not in front of it.

3. I live in a historic row house with my fiance, our chocolate lab, and our orange tabby. My shop and blog are named for my studio in our row house.

4. I am a self proclaimed music nerd.

5. I love cooking, baking, and drinking coffee, and one day want to have my own coffee house.

6. I spent some time living in Australia and would love to live there again some day.

7. I’ve never eaten mac and cheese out of a box. People think I’m nuts when I tell them this. My mom always cooked from scratch and so do I. The opportunity just never presented itself. Am I missing out?

What is your favorite thing about this month?

I love May because it means beautiful weather in Baltimore. 75 degrees, flip flops, dog walks along the water, grilling and eating outside, and leaving all the windows open in the house to let the breeze blow through. Love it!
