My Mother’s Day was lovely. But I wouldn’t have any other expectations, I’ve met my son. He and I had a quiet Friday evening and Saturday until evening together. With a quick run out to catch the ice cream man on Saturday we were waved down by UPS who had two boxes for us. One […]
Our Easter egg hunt started out wonderfully- well, if you’re me anyway. It was just Angel + Mom & Dad, and as soon as Angel had found exactly two eggs he triumphantly returned to me and declared that we should eat them. Obviously this wasn’t so awesome for Daddy Dear ; ) You can’t […]
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 […]
Yay for Change! Echoia Photography has become EchoStenger.com- why? Well, obviously because I can rarely make up my mind about a darn thing ; ) Also because I have been wanting to blog more often, and I didn’t really feel comfortable writing photo-free entries on a photography blog. And maybe I am not dusting my […]
Another birthday. For this one I stayed up all night making an ice-cream cake, as was requested. It was going well until I stashed it in the downstairs freezer to freeze the cake portions before frosting it- someone had turned off the freezer and I did not notice… cake melt, anyone? Oh, well. We went […]
Some preschool lessons for Angel. We used Valentine’s Day candy (obviously) to sort by color and count, then we did some addition (‘how do you turn the Hershey’s Kiss in that corner and the Hershey’s Kiss in that corner into two Hershey’s kisses?’ his solution? put them together, of course!). I’ve been looking forward 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.
