This is the last Saturday of February and overall I’m pretty pleased with my efforts during Frugal February! I wasn’t perfect, but I did break out of some bad habits that were developing. There are still a few days of February left, and I expect to be fine on the no-shopping front until they go […]
I haven’t felt my best this week and wasn’t sure I was going to get around to posting this at all. But I kind of need to, because I kind of didn’t do so great last week. It wasn’t terrible- with not feeling well, overextending myself a little and getting some rotten news I found […]
Every year in February I commit to being more careful with money for the month. After birthdays in October, plus Halloween, then we go right into budgeting and planning for Christmas, followed by all the sales of everything ever in January (I don’t care much for Black Friday- I am a January sales girl), February […]
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 […]
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 […]
Back in the late fall 2013 Kevin, Angel and I were on another hunt for products to cure little man’s dry skin. While I did my due diligence getting a hit from every candle in Bath & Body Works the guys sampled lotions and moisturizers. Finally settling on two scents they brought me the options. […]
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.
