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 […]
It’s been a while since I updated on my general cameo projects. There have been lots of freebies making the rounds, but not much about my personal projects. I made several Christmas gifts. Every year, Angel receives an ornament for our tree. This year, I wanted something to reflect that he had started school but […]
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 […]
When I updated my Project Ten Can on Tuesday I mentioned some large 22oz jars that I had saved for a Silhouette Cameo project. I’ve been working on Christmas cut files for quite a while, but I don’t do a lot of decorating for Thanksgiving. I wanted to make a little centerpiece for my table […]
I told you not to judge me! Didn’t I? Maybe not. But still. Do you have a problem with clean hands? No? Well okay then. Put your torches away. I love these Bath and Body Works Foaming Hand Soaps for the kitchen sink. I buy foaming hand soaps from other brands as well, but at […]
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 […]
I love art, and decorations, and doing things myself! This spring I talked Kevin into talking me into spending way too much money on some new equipment to bring my art to life, and I’ve been quite obsessed with this machine ever since. This little cutie is a Silhouette Cameo and I’ve fallen quite in […]
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. The […]
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.
