Hi! I’m Allyssa, but you can call me Lyss. Or Liz. I’m a twenty-something web designer who calls New Jersey home. I love country music, cats, and cupcakes more than anyone should. I’m a sucker for a summer thunderstorm and I’ve been known to eat lemons at restaurants without blinking an eye. I make references to Gilmore Girls much too frequently and I am absolutely obsessed with cats. Speaking of which, meet Tyler. He is trouble with a capital T.
The Barn (previously Lyss Barn) was created in May 2012 after several failed blogging attempts, including a stint in food blogging (turns out that while I love to bake/cook, I don’t like writing about it!). This blog is my creative outlet. A place where I can create and share with the world. Since this blog is based on what I find inspiring, you’ll find posts on a variety of topics, from design to style to tips & tutorials.
