Meet Beth Williams
As Project Nursery’s Editor, I get to realize two of my dreams—unleashing my inner grammar and design geek and being able to stay at home with my sons.
I’ve always loved children’s design. If you want to know a design-nerdy, little secret of mine, I was buying issues of Martha Stewart Kids and Martha Stewart Baby in college, when kids were nothing but a hazy idea well into my future. Sadly, both publications ceased to exist before I was even pregnant with my son. Luckily, I still have clippings I pulled from the magazines. (Yeah, I’m a little bit of a hoarder, too.)
In undergrad, I studied creative writing, photography and film, and I later received my Masters in creative writing. I’m pleased to be putting the skills I learned both at school and my pre-baby career days back to work at Project Nursery. I love the blogging world and the community of moms and dads out there on the internet willing to share, support and inspire others.
1. I grew up in Upstate New York, and after a six-year stint in Baltimore, my husband and I moved back with our then infant son. My parents grew up in the Adirondacks, where I visited my grandparents often as a child. 2. I’ve got a soft spot for cute. I adore this bunny vase. 3. I’m a dabbler in all crafts, but one of my favorites is needle felting—sculpting with wool roving. 4. These typography animals are awesome. Seriously, check out the website. 5. I’m a jeans girl through and through, which is ironic since I refused to wear them as a kid because they were “too scratchy” (yes, I was that kid). Now I’m a loyal wearer of Gap jeans. 6. I love these sweet baby spoons. The kicker is that the reverse side shows the little animal’s bottom! 7. A total grammar nerd at heart, the very first grammar/style book I read was The Elements of Style. I love putting my grammar obsession to work as Editor at Project Nursery. 8. Nothing quite beats a fresh, new box of crayons.
