Well, you can probably guess by this point that I love graphic design. Experimenting with fonts, colors, and patterns is pretty much the best job ever. I could go on and on for a long time about how much I love it–but you’d probably get bored, so I’ll move on.
Besides graphic design, I love Jesus, playing the piano and violin, cooking, photography, and spending time with friends & family. I’m blessed to live on a farm in Illinois and really can’t imagine spending my life anywhere else. I’m definitely a small town girl at heart!
A few of my favorite things: sunny afternoons, sweet tea, colorful sunsets, flowers growing by the roadside… if it weren’t for the little things, life would be entirely big things!
The story behind RLD: In 2008, I began my first blog. Gradually I started teaching myself graphic design and coding, and soon it became a hobby. I taught myself more and more over the next few years, and in 2013, I took a leap of faith and started my Etsy shop. Originally I offered custom blog design packages, and eventually I expanded into business branding and logo design as well. Fast forward to spring of 2016, and I realized that I wasn’t where I wanted to be long term. Over the summer I again shifted my focus, and now I’m following my life dream: to become a nurse. Graphic design is still a huge part of my life, though, so I decided to specialize in premade logo designs and printables. This way I can work my way through school and follow both dreams as a business owner and nursing student. I look forward to seeing what the future holds!
