Hey Sweet Pea, 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?
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 related material and handcrafted goods, which is just a fancy way of saying that couldn’t decide what skill set to focus on and spent way too much time reading fiction while writing fantasy, 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+ year old 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 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 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 why I need his closet space too.
