A Little About Me…
Hi guys! I’m Alicia Stemper. A Minnesota girl living in Atlanta (notice how I didn’t say y’all?) and loving the life God has given me.
I am so thrilled that you’re here. I’m sure people say that all the time, right? I’m serious! Can we be friends?
I’m here to share my adventures as a mommy, crafting, and building a life I am proud to call 100% my own. What you do doesn’t have to fit the mold, and I’m here to inspire you to be unapologetically YOU.
Please follow along with all my successes (and failures) – I’ll be keeping it real here and sharing it all!
A little background…
I’m someone who likes to stay pretty busy! They say if you want to get something done, give it to a busy person – right? Not so long ago, I made a scary decision to leave my full time career in advertising and have wandered into the absolutely crazy world of stay at home mom life! Who am I kidding… work from home life! I have an amazing new found respect for all the mamas out there that choose this life! It’s both rewarding and the hardest thing I’ve ever ventured into.
I wouldn’t be able to do so without my own entrepreneurial spirit and the support of my amazing family, specifically my husband, who endlessly supports all my crazy ideas.
Follow your dreams!
Being able to let myself succeed and fail at my own creative endeavors and help raise others up to believe in themselves are my passions! I absolutely love that we are living in an era where you can become anything you want to! Never ever quit your daydream! If there is something you want to do, that has been weighing on your heart, that you are passionate about, I urge you to take a step towards that goal today!
Craft the life you love.
If you don’t know what you love, keep searching, take tiny steps everyday to get there.
I am the owner and creator of the two Etsy shops: a.m. jewels and grateful to create
Whether you’re crafty or not, we all have something to offer the world and have the opportunity to shoot for the stars and make your dream a reality.
Follow along with me and all my shenanigans! I will never pretend that I have it all together. I’ll be the first to admit that my life is scattered and I’m often a hot mess…but one thing that I can say proudly is that I continue to embrace life’s flaws! I promise you, you’ll be much happier for it.
This blog is not a place for perfection. Don’t expect gorgeous photos all the time. Half of the time, I’ll be snapping what I can with my iPhone. My crafts are not always going to be the most original, but I hope to offer projects that are easy for any level of crafter to pick up. I’m just here to share what makes me happy and encourage you to find happiness in all you do!
I am grateful for you, and for this opportunity to have this time in my life…to create, be a mommy and all the chaos in between!
