I am Stephanie Ackerman.. I am "Creating a life that reflects my dreams, Living a life that defines my purpose"
I am an ordinary girl living an extraordinary life where I get to do what I love for a living.
A mom of two extremely handsome boys, a wife to an extremely handsome husband, a neighbor, a sister, a daughter and I love making things, probably a little more than the average person.
I am a regular girl who love’s GOD, family, friends, my church and being Home Sweet Home.
I really am a simple girl that sometimes complicates things and I am a little bit sarcastic and sassy at times. I am also a huge dork and have become proud of it.
I love Chips & Salsa, crushed ice cubes in Styrofoam cups and Fuji Apples. I love going to bed at night and waking early to have coffee with Hazelnut creamer. I know it is bad for me, but it is my one guilty pleasure.
My purpose is to create, inspire, teach and encourage others through creative arts. I love to make stuff because God created and gave me specific gifts and talents. HE is the reason for my ART so that is why you will always see (or maybe not see) a HEart in my work. Sometimes I create using paper or sometimes it is with batter, fabric, dough, paint, wood or a little of each. When asked how long I have been creating, I reply that it started at birth. My very first project was when the nurse stamped my lil tiny baby foot in ink and stamped it on my Birth Certificate.
As I grew up, I sewed Barbie Clothes, made forts with sheets and blankets, patches on my sash, created pot holders and latch hook rugs, stitched sit-upons, baked cookies, cakes, mowed lawns, cleaned houses…pretty much you name it, I have made it at one time or another…except for welding. I do not know how to weld.
At any given moment I might be praying, doodling, running, baking chocolate chip cookies, doing laundry, trying to match socks, doing more laundry, organizing piles, at the airport or coming home from the airport, stitching, taking a nap (which I do every day) or all of the above.
