I’m Stephanie – a small-town Colorado soul currently living in the south.
I grew up in a quaint little town surrounded by the majestic Colorado Rocky Mountains. Because of this I crave the outdoors and need a dose of adventure pretty consistently. We’ve been a bit nomadic the past few years, moving around for my husband’s work. Georgia is where we’re at for now and I’m loving its charm. From the coastline to the Smokey Mountains, there’s a lot to explore here in Georgia!
We don’t go on grand adventures everyday, so on typical days you’ll find me making wooden things, typing up a blog post, routine tasks, reading, or taking a walk in the woods with my boys (my two sons and husband) and our dog Kimber.
Some days we are more social-media worthy when we venture out and about. I may post about a typical day or our adventures once in awhile, but honestly I have no desire to keep up with the fast pace or overexposure most social media platforms require. Well, maybe the exception is Pinterest. Pinterest is definitely the most inspiring for ideas and creating vision boards.
Backstory of anitome…
When my first son was born, in 2006, I published anitome~A Baby Book & Annual Birthday Journal because I wanted him to be able to keep memories throughout his life, not just in the first years. The ‘mass’ produced baby books seemed so…mass produced. Now, each year’s important events and memories get written down in both of my son’s anitome books on their birthdays.
Note: As of December 2016, the anitome book was sold out! A full PDF version of anitome is available at Myla Stone & Co. if you want to print and bind it through your own printer or print and put it in a 3-ring binder. I will notify everyone on here and by email if bound copies are available again.
In 2012, when my second son was born, I took some woodworking classes so I could build both of my boys a personalized wood keepsake chest. We use their wood chests to keep their baby stuff, along with trophies, teeth (yes I’m gross), and other mementos that come with time. Because of the interest I’ve gotten over the years, I’ve made the anitome book, printables, and my keepsake chests available at Myla Stone & Co. and on Etsy too. Since these items are created by me and NOT mass produced, please understand that they are limited. It’s what makes them special!
