Hey there! I am the owner and designer behind Unica Forma. On an average day you can find me cuddled up on the couch with my husband and our pups binge watching a Netflix show. I’m mostly known for having a free spirit and diving headstrong into dry, frivolous humor. People often refer to me as dedicated; whenever I get my mind & heart set on something, I move at in full force. (cue the birth of Unica Forma). I design for people who struggle with finding a way to convey their style and personality on paper. I start by building a relationship with them to figure out the best way to infuse important interests and visions into their project. I am lucky enough to serve clients during the biggest moments of their lives and give them a tangible piece of nostalgia to look back on for generations. When I’m not busy working with clients, you can catch me redecorating, crate digging in a vinyl shop, or on my back patio with a cold brew in hand.

Roasted veggies are the best side dish - hands down. After macaroni.

02. Hip-Hop

03. Books

My ideal Saturday morning is spent at the farmer's market picking up fresh produce to use in a new recipe later that day.

90's hip hop (and R&B) is my love language. Every memory I have has a song and/or album connected to it. 

I am usually reading 2 books at any given time. The old me would cringe at the thought, but the new me loves it. In the morning I read my non-fiction book + I read my fiction books before bed.

I am a podcast freak. I am able to listen to them all day since I work from home - and I usually do. I'm always looking for suggestions, so give me yours!

It's funny - I didn't even use a planner in college to keep track of my schedule or assignments and now my world revolves around them.

I am a bravo junkie and I've 100% accepted (and embraced) it. Vanderpump Rules is the best show to ever exist. Everything Bravo puts out is pure gold.

I have fallen into the self-care product trap, and I'm never looking back. I do a face mask, hair mask + foot mask twice a week

This is my first season with a vegetable garden in my backyard. We are starting simple, but it is such a therapeutic hobby. (PLUS, it gives me those roasted veggies I love!) 

This obsession if a few years old, but it's still going strong.

These are a few of my favorite things

Meet the

      Charlie and I met at The University of Cincinnati while we were both studying to become teachers. We ended up having the majority of our classes together, and I couldn't seem to get away from this kid in class who answered EVERY question. I was always the quiet one in the back of class and he was the polar opposite. I always blamed him for class running longer than it was supposed to.

            Over time all of his talking shifted from the teacher to me, and he was really witty, so I was stuck. I had always been the one to tease the other person & was quick on my feet. Until him.

 (And yes, I realize I was "an adult" at the time and my flirting method should have matured, but oh well.). We ended up spending all of our time together in and outside of class and he became obsessed with my dog, Quincy. 

            We got engaged fall of 2015 and married the next year. We adopted our second dog in 2016 and love nothing more than spending time with our little family. 

Meet Charlie

      Charlie and I met at the University of Cincinnati while we were both studying to become teachers. We had every class together and became inseparable. My dog Quincy and I moved in with him in 2015 and he proposed that fall. We adopted our second dog, Pumba in May of 2016 and then tied the knot September of that year! We built a house and moved in October of 2016, finally putting some roots down in Pickerington, Ohio.

            Go Bearcats! There are a few things in life that I’m really passionate about and the Cincinnati Bearcats (mainly basketball) are one of them. I’m sure Jordin is tired of all the games we have to watch and all the stats I tell her about but she’ll live! I’m considered the Entertainer of the family. I try as hard as I can to keep everyone happy, Happy Wife Happy Life right? Well it’s pretty easy to keep the dogs happy. Say trigger words, throw toys, randomly attack them to play, and of course just feeding them does the trick. With Jordin it’s a different story. I usually can figure something out to cheer her up on a bad day but she’s a much harder nut to crack. 

            My favorite part of every day is when I get home from work to find two wagging butts and a kiss from the love of my life.

            I’ve been blessed to have such an amazing family, home, and life that continues to keep me guessing. I certainly look forward to relaxing times on the couch with just the four of us, as well as when we make time to get out on the town. Now that I’ve typed enough words I’m going to try to get in a game a Fifa while Jordin is getting ready to go out. Peace!

            Hey everybody! My mom told me that if I did this she would give me a bone, so ta-da, here I am.

      I have been described as the stand-off teenager in our house, but that's just because I'm already 5 (x7) years old, and my brother is a spazz. I like to spend my days laying down, looking out the window. What people don't understand is that I am the protector of our home, and without me, the mailman and our neighbors could break in any time. So, I think I am just a little misunderstood.

            Anyways, I'm not always laying around &

trying to be the best guard dog ever. I enjoy eating, and my internal clock tells me exactly when the clock turns to 5:30. Sometimes my parents forget that that's dinner time, so I usually just bark at them until they remember. 

          I know a lot of tricks, and will do ALL of them in a row without being asked if you have a treat in your hand. That's just how good I am. 

            As you can tell, food is the most important thing in my life and my mom is standing next to me with that bone she promised, so I've gotta go. Woof!

Meet

            Yay!!! I am so happy mom let me come talk to you guys! I'm Pumba and I am the fun one in the house.

            Without me, everyone would just watch Netflix 24/7! Luckily for them, I never run out of energy and I am willing to play fetch for hours at a time. Sometimes Mom and Dad forget to throw the toy after the 30th time I've brought it back, so I push it under the couch just far enough so I can't reach it anymore and then I scratch the bottom of the couch to remind them that we were playing! They're so silly!

            I know you guys just met Quincy, and let

me just say, he is my hero. Everything he does I  try to do, too. He is the greatest big brother in the world!! Whenever he doesn't feel like playing, I just bite his legs until he retaliates and we get to wrestle. It's seriously the best.

            Oh! I almost forgot! I have been told that I am the sweetest boy in all of the land. I give tisses to everyone and everything, including the air. If someone asks for a tiss, I will give it to whatever is closest to me while my tail moves a mile a minute. I'm just really excited to be alive and spend all my time trying to make everyone as happy as I am! My brother is rolling over by Mom. I think we're gonna get a bone! TTFN!
