Welcome to my corner of the webverse!
Life is full of all the little things we love and I wanted a website where I could share my love of reading, handcrafting, writing, graphic designing, and so much more. It’s still a work in progress, but isn’t that how life is?
Hello, my name is Stephannie Beman, and I was once a city girl who decided an adventure in the country would be loads of fun. I planned to stay a week, maybe two, and never left.
Now I’m a coffee-loving dabbler in the mystic arts of writing, designing and creating book covers and handcrafted goods, which is just a fancy way of saying that I couldn’t decide what skill set to focus on so I choose them all. I probably spent way too much time reading fiction, writing my next book, creating and designing handcrafted items, offering book design services, collecting old objects, and generally doing what I love.
For 13 years, I lived in a 100+ log cabin where I cooked on a wood stove while writing stories of the heart and working on the ranch beside the love of my life. I even got the chance to work on a few crafting skills I learned in my youth. During that time I fell in love with the quality and beauty of old rustic things, the story behind each piece, and the simplistic way of by-gone days.
Even though we now live in a more modern home with our 2 rambunctious girls, I still love filling our home with beautiful and unique antiques and handmade items. But my home is only so big and there are only so many things I can collect and create before it starts pouring out of the closets and I have to explain to my wonderful hubby and adorable children why I need their closet spaces too.
