Hi, Everyone! Welcome to Shopgirl, I'm so glad you stopped by! I started this blog as a sort of creative online journal and a way to share my recipes, projects and ideas with my friends and family around the world! My name is Maria, and I am originally from Prague, Czech Republic, where I grew up and lived until I moved to London, England, to study Art History. After graduating from college, I married my high school sweetheart and we lived in New Jersey for a couple of years, and then moved to Maryland in the summer of 2012. I love interior design and decorating, cooking, baking, art and art history, drawing, painting, sewing, crafting, shopping, and traveling and seeing new places! As for my blog name, Shopgirl, it's a reference to my favorite movie... You've Got Mail! I hope you find something that interests you here on Shopgirl, and that I inspire you to be creative yourself today! Have a great day, and thanks for stopping by!
