About Me

December 5th, 2011 No Comments

I’ve never been good at these “About Me” sections, but I enjoy reading about others, so I thought I would include my own.

My name is Stephanie. I’m a 30-something mom of 2. I have been married since 2001. I lived in the suburbs of Chicago until early 2011 when my husband finally convinced me to move to the Ozarks of Missouri.  We lived there for about a year and a half, then moved back home to the Chicago area.

I started this blog in 2008 as a place to show off my hand-crafted items and graphic designs. That’s still this blog’s main function, but I may throw in a few random posts about things I find funny (mostly things I hear at work). I don’t claim to be the authority on hand-crafted items or graphic design. In fact, most of what I create is done following a tutorial or inspired by other crafts I see. I always try to link the tutorial or inspiration so you can try too!

In an effort to motivate myself to post more often, I have started doing themed posts.  Muted Monday will be pictures from the week.  There will be no descriptions or explanations.  Tutorial Tuesday will be where I find a tutorial online and give it a whirl.  Sometimes these will turn out well, and sometimes they will fail spectacularly.  On a Whim Wednesday will feature products I have for sale on my Etsy Shop.  Tally Thursday I will talk about books I am reading – either for Book Club or Book a Week Challenge. Foodie Friday will show you a recipe I found online and tried. Kind of like Tutorial Tuesday but with food instead of crafts.  Some of these will be winners and some will not.  I will explain why I feel the way I do about that particular dish.  The weekend is for spending time with family, getting the week’s blog posts in order, and recharging my blogging batteries.  Now, I don’t promise to post 5 days a week every single week, but it is a goal to work towards.  As always, if you have suggestions for any of these days, let me know!  Put it in the comments or contact me through the “contact” link at the top.

I’m slowly trying to sell my crafts. You can check out my shops on the “Shop” page of this site. There are widgets to my Etsy and CafePress stores.

You can contact me through the “Contact” page on this site. I will try to respond as fast as possible. You can always follow me on Twitter. The button is at the top of the page. My twitter is full of my random thoughts and blabber.

Thanks for visiting my site! If you have any questions, concerns, tips, tricks or just want to say hi… please let me know!
