    Welcome to my little corner of the world!

    June 30, 2017

    Well, hello there! Welcome to my little corner of the Internet. My name is Stefanie and I run the little blog you see before you. I’ve been on the Internet for a long time, back when MySpace was a new thing – crap, that makes me feel old!

    I haven’t really written much in the last 5-7 years. For the most part, I’ve focused on my career and home life. I’ve always felt like I wasn’t the greatest at writing, but here I am, ready to give it a shot again! As I move into the next phase of my life (turned 30 last year…), I wanted a space where I could sort of jot down my thoughts, share a recipe or two, and post some of my creative projects. My ultimate goal is to get more comfortable with sharing my thoughts and art, possibly inspiring others to do the same. It can be scary to share your work with others, but doing so allows you to grow and become a better artist, which is something I strive for on a daily basis.

    What I want to do is to start out with a very loose format. I don’t want to force myself to keep to a certain schedule, but rather ease back into the journaling process. Here and there I’ll  share stories, moments from my life (probably in picture form), and some of my creative projects. I work in Graphic Design, but my own art often takes a back seat to what I do for a living and I want to change that. My real life job tends to take its toll on me, but I’d like to start getting in the habit of being creative everyday, building those creative muscles. You can expect some bullet journal spreads and layouts, lettering, sketching, and maybe even some photography. 

    Now I am not going to lie. I tend to be pretty terrible at keeping up with this blog, so I want to start out posting once a week, at the very least. It may not always be on the same day, but my goal is to have something to post each week, which I know I will because I bullet journal each week. I feel like that is a good place to start. The goal is to be consistent and share more and more content for whoever is interested. Even if no one reads this, I’ll be fine. It will just be me, myself and I – and the Internet.
