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 […]
I love technology. Art + Technology = Love. Every time. I also love my 5 year old son to the moon and back. All day. Every day. It never stops. Angel + Any Single Minute = Love. Around the time he was born I decided to give up (for the time being) most art. For […]
Kevin bought me a beautiful new computer back in October (for my birthday). It has taken me seven months to finally get Adobe Camera Raw sorted out and functional. With it finally working, Kevin invited us to the Tulip Festival taking place at Thanksgiving Point. I’d turned him down all week but it was hard […]
It’s January 3rd, reserve your judgments! I get to have six glorious weeks of red and pink everything and I am going to take full advantage. Full advantage meaning that I picked up all of this stuff before Christmas but exercised enough self control to simply put it away until after the new year. Target […]
After Christmas I like to hit up sales to get myself a few of the things I saw while shopping for others. My biggest splurge this year was candles. Lots and lots of candles. At Kohl’s the Sonoma Life + Style line was on sale. The digital price signage did not reflect this, but I […]
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.
