I’m Lori, your devoted Luftmensch. I’ve had an urge to create for as long as I can remember, and I have always lived a bit too much in my own head. My creations follow my whims and interests–but don’t everyone’s?

Amongst other things I’m a Jewish mama, an English professor, a writer, a reader, and a Montessorian.

My son was born in 2012, and since his birth I have thought a lot about what it means to be a Jewish family and to have a Jewish home. We also aspire to live a curious, unhurried life that allows us to savor the small moments. If I’ve learned anything since becoming a mom, it’s that time moves very fast, whether you like it or not. Our daughter was born in 2016, and having two children seems to have sped up time even more.

I’m inspired to create things that make our lives more beautiful, and that inspire us to slow down and connect as we move through each day. I love sharing my creations, and I hope you will find inspiration and beauty in them, as well.

Thank you for stopping by Luftmensch Designs! And do come back; the shop is always evolving.
