First of all, thank you for stopping by. This is just my little space for stories from my life. As my first blog post I thought I would tell you why I am here. I am happily married, mother of two boys. We live in Arkansas on a gravel road out in the country on a little over 12 acres. We built one of those white houses with a huge front porch and the dormers on the second story. I roll up to my kids school in a black minivan, that I swore I would never drive.
I started out a few years ago with a love of scrapbooking. I had two babies in two years so I had plenty of pictures to fill books. I was up late one night (probably with a cranky little boy) and an infomercial for a cutting machine caught my interest. I thought of all the cool things I could make for scrapbook layouts. After TONS of research into all the different desktop cutting plotters I told my husband I wanted a Silhouette Cameo for Christmas.
I fell in love. I wanted it for scrapbooking but I have honestly used it for so many things. Party invitations, birthday cards, vinyl decals, stencils for signs, and now I use HTV to make shirts and bags and even canvas signs.
One of the reasons I decided on a silhouette was its software. Silhouette Studio is not a web application which means if you have sometimes spotty internet, as I do out in the sticks, you don’t have to be without crafting time. I also loved the idea of designing my own graphics. The Software is so user friendly that anyone can learn it.
Once I got started designing my own cut files I found out I really enjoyed the design process more than the crafting process. Which is why I am here. I love designing graphics for shirts, signs, and scrapbooks. I am self-taught through trial and error, many many YouTube tutorials, and reading so many blogs.
Whether you are here for graphics or to learn something new with me, WELCOME. I hope to share about many of my passions. Which brings me to the title of this little blog…
Dirt- We live a messy life of two boys, two dogs, gravel road, and learning as we go in a fallen world
Grace- Jesus. He is the way, the truth, and the light. I’ll share my faith with you through out our time together and I love to hear from you as well.
