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 […]
It’s difficult to describe the satisfaction that comes with envisioning something in the night, snatching up my bedside sketchbook, scratching out my best (pitiful) efforts and then actually making that idea come to life. I should dig out the actual sketch I did last month to really display how poorly I express myself on paper. […]
It’s time for another super-cute Ten Minute Tutorial! In this tutorial I’ll demonstrate a very quick and effective method I’ve been using lately in my (yet unpublished) recent work. It’s a great and easy method that will speed up symmetrical shapes that aren’t being created with default shape tools. Let’s make a web-ready panda cartoon […]
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 […]
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.
