Courtney enjoys creating DIY projects, such as decor for her room and handmade jewelry. She is a freshman at Elon University and loves spending time with family and friends when she is not crafting.

Tanner has been a creative kid all his life. He was always crafting and making things.  Tanner created his first blog in 2012 as well as releasing a stamp line that he designed and had manufactured.

Check out some of their projects:
