Christmas is like Echonip. Err… don’t go there. I aspire to make our home a wonderland the likes of which are only seen in movies. It starts the Saturday following Thanksgiving and lasts into January. I. Love. It. I wish I could decorate like Will Ferrel in Elf. I worry that the kids just aren’t […]
A few weeks ago my retriever mix, Veda Jane, began acting funny. We couldn’t really put a finger on it and I considered taking her to the vet but, ‘She doesn’t sit by me when I draw’ just doesn’t get taken seriously. I’ve had similar conversations with different doctors and they just get dismissed until […]
A certain little guy has been quite fixated on animals lately. We’re indulging him when we can. He’s been talking a lot about tortugas and baby crocs, so we did a quick visit to the reptile house to check em out. He was also eager to see an octopus, which I’m excited about because I’ve […]
Sunday before Labor Day I had hoped to take Angel to the Zoo, but when the weather forecast was 96° I decided against it. The Hogle Zoo is rather hilly and means pushing a stroller because, you know, at least one of us can be comfortable. But that forecast was way off. It was overcast […]
I am unusually excited for warm weather this year. Maybe it’s because of our a/c working so well right now, or maybe it’s because when looking through last year’s photos I see we did things that made this face: But whatever the reason, I am excited. I keep buying things to make […]
Kevin completed his undergrad back in December. June 1st he had his ceremony. Brunch with the graduates would not have been so nice in December in Utah . We saw Robert Redford receive an honorary doctorate. His speech put Angel right to sleep, note the difference in hair from the pictures above […]
On Sunday morning I sneaked around the house to protect precious little time alone. I’m awesome at this time-alone/echo-time thing: I showered and did some server correcting before … washing up a load of dishes, making myself breakfast (the rare chances I have to eat any food without being asked for any, asked to make someone […]
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.
