For Spring Break it was my pleasure to entertain Angel each day, as well as his brothers for the morning and afternoon. Angel had been asking for a trip to the aquarium in Draper, Utah for quite a bit so that’s what we did day 1. I really enjoy it, and it isn’t hard to […]
With the completion of and official launch of my freebies site (SilhouetteCameoFreebies.com) and the redesign and relaunch of my portfolio (echoia.com – small e, always a small e) this blog of mine is the last of my projects that kind of sits in limbo. I want to return to blogging, but blogging has never been easy […]
It’s been a while since I updated on my general cameo projects. There have been lots of freebies making the rounds, but not much about my personal projects. I made several Christmas gifts. Every year, Angel receives an ornament for our tree. This year, I wanted something to reflect that he had started school but […]
Back on September 4th I told the world about my Candle Hoarding when I introduced my Project Ten Can. I’m proud to say that, as of this weekend, I am completely done with my first Project Ten Can! And so far, I’ve added zero additional candles to what is still a far-too-big stash. Unfortunately, the […]
I told you not to judge me! Didn’t I? Maybe not. But still. Do you have a problem with clean hands? No? Well okay then. Put your torches away. I love these Bath and Body Works Foaming Hand Soaps for the kitchen sink. I buy foaming hand soaps from other brands as well, but at […]
Ahh, Summer. Shorts. Lemonade. And sales. After Christmas is the worst time for me. What people don’t understand about, ‘Don’t buy me presents, just give me cash for the SALES!’ I’ll never know. Summer sales are no stranger to me either, though. I’ve not been nearly as bad as I was January-March but I’ve been […]
Kevin bought me a beautiful new computer back in October (for my birthday). It has taken me seven months to finally get Adobe Camera Raw sorted out and functional. With it finally working, Kevin invited us to the Tulip Festival taking place at Thanksgiving Point. I’d turned him down all week but it was hard […]
Angel and I decided this week to make cake pops. And licensed character cake pops at that. I’m not exactly a domestic diva but I am usually up for a good adventure in baking. I’m not even very good at that, but more often than not even if what you make doesn’t turn out beautiful… […]
EchoStenger.com began in early 2013 as a side project of Echoia.com. Namely, Echoia Photography. Wanting to expand to include more varied content, it seemed only appropriate to change the site's title.
It currently is an outlet for many of my interests and passions. I share my work in and write tutorials for Adobe Illustrator, review products (mostly purchased by me), experiment with my Silhouette Cameo machine (hashtag vector in flesh!), share my day-to-day and still post photographs on a regular basis.
Thank you for visiting and coming along with me as I grow and seek out beauty in everything.
I am a Christian mom, girlfriend, dog-mom, cat-mom and pseudo step-mom. I take up hobbies faster than I can put them back down. I am from Texas, but currently reside in Utah.
I. Love. Air conditioning.
Angel : My seraph son. I’ll likely speak of nothing and no one so much. Born October 2009. He likes the color
orange blue and almost anything Marvel.
Veda : Black. Lab-like. Born Summer 2008. A life changer. Full name and title: Princess Darth Veda Jane Sultanfuss Stenger. Usually just Veda/Veda Jane when she’s bad. Also ‘Monster’. In your way? Just say, 'Scoot, Veda.'
Trinity : Rescued from the pound about 9 weeks of age, Summer 2009. I call her ‘Wiggle Bottoms’, 'Dummy' (lovingly, of course) or ‘Little Bit’. Big time cuddler.
Li : Dog cat. Scarier than both the dogs put together.
