I am not an expert. I am not a graphic artist, a chef, an interior designer, a book reviewer, an event planner or a true blogger. But I love photoshop and fonts. Cooking old favorites and trying new recipes. Shopping and styling. Decorating my home. Reading as many books as I can get my hands on and rating them on Goodreads. Traveling to new places and eating all of the food. Watching too much television. Hosting themed dinner parties. Curating Pinterest boards and Spotify playlists. Walks on the beach where I live in beautiful Southern California. I take a lot of pictures of sunsets, the ocean and food. Yes I am that person. Most important in all the things I enjoy doing I love to share with my family, friends and husband. If I am about one thing it is my connection to others. And having bangs.
My day job is in fashion e-commerce and marketing. Dollfacepunk is my side hustle. My passion project. If you are looking for an expert in anything, you are in the wrong place. I am just a simple person that loves a lot of things and loves sharing those things with others.
I first started Dollfacepunk in 2000 when I was 17 years old. I have spent years working on my website and years ignoring it through the ups and downs of life. But I always come back. I have sold handmade handbags, retro tees on Cafepress and now run a shop on Etsy featuring printables.
I am not a calligrapher or artist. I play around in photoshop and make pretty things with graphics and fonts. It isn’t that someone else couldn’t make what I make, but people are busy. When planning for a big event the last thing most people want to do is be bothered with details. What others find tedious, I love doing. I can provide something quick and affordable. I love I have been apart of weddings and other major events in people’s lives all over the world.
Dabbling into fan art for some of my favorite books and TV shows I realized there is so much more I can get into and grow. I look forward to a new beginning in 2018 and seeing what is next for Dollfacepunk 18 years later.
