I’m Lauren: a culture critic, dance writer, fitness instructor and recovering academic.
This blog isn’t about any of that.
One Crafty Lady is an unadulterated grab bag of musings and fun finds from my life in Chicago, the places I travel, and the attempts I make at cooking and throwing parties.
Who’s the lady?
