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 […]
Hey, guys! Last weekend was a holiday here so I didn’t publish a freebie, also because the last one was for that holiday and contained two files for two separate purposes. But this week I’m back! And I’m coming out swinging! Swords that is, two of ’em ; ) I showed the swords on my latest […]
One of the primary reasons I bought my Silhouette machine was so that I could personalize drinkware. I love mugs, cups, bottles, tumblers, shot glasses etc. I can’t get enough! Combining that with my love of pink and my huge ego I personalized my first water bottle. Personalizing Starbucks cups is a big […]
This frame cost roughly $2 in materials. Well, it’s made of $2 worth of materials! The frame was $1 at Michaels. I designed all of the flourishes and adornments specifically for it in Illustrator, cut them out of shiny black Oracal 651 and applied after painting the frame white and sealing it with dishwasher safe […]
Looking forward in just over a month to my sweet baby’s 5th birthday. But before a milestone he’s been looking forward to for quite some time (and lying about having reached to a point that by some time in July I started actually telling people he was 5 because, conditioning) a little look back to […]
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.
