Italian born and bred, Morena is the kind of girl who would rather have paint on her fingers than get a manicure. The daughter of two DIYers, she and her husband strive to pass the tradition and value of handmade to their four children. Morena’s passion is using thrifted and inexpensive finds to craft designer inspired creations, and she excels in creating colorful, bold pieces. As a former teacher, this site is like her virtual classroom. She is on several design teams, including DecoArt, Live.Craft.Love by Darice, Fairfield World, Goodwill SA, Walnut Hollow, and Darby Smart.
