About My Business
My career in graphic design and website development began in July of 2018 when I built my first website, The Spoonless Witch. I didn't know anyone who could help me with the graphics, with developing the website - or even in teaching me to do so, which meant my only option was to teach myself. As I learned, I started offering to help friends and family with their websites, graphics, and social media accounts, for free at first to gain experience. Now that I'm confident in my website development skills, I feel comfortable charging for my services.
I'm happy to take on jobs for any type of company, and have done graphics, website development, and/or social media management for businesses in a variety of industries such as; an insurance agency, diamond painting, a doctor's office, a metaphysical shop, an art shop, a bakery, and more. When creating a website, graphic, or working on a social media account for a business, I'm flexible enough to be able to bend to any industry, as well as their specific needs and goals as a business.
I've designed a handful of successful websites, including the one you're currently looking at! I even continue to keep up with many of these websites, and update them when needed. I just love looking at a brand new, untouched website as a blank canvas, allowing me to mold it in my hands any way I want. Brands that have trusted me with the development and design of their websites are:
- The Spoonless Witch
- Prince Hill Insurance Agency, LLC.
- Ashley's Aura
- Nancy's Diamonds
- Grandma's Kitchen
- The Call of the Craft
The Spoonless Witch, Ashley's Aura, and The Call of the Craft were built with Shopify, Prince Hill Insurance Agency's website was built with Insurance Splash, and Nancy's Diamonds and Grandma's Kitchen were built with Format, which is also what I used to build my own website.
I can also redesign existing websites, so if you're not happy with the way your website currently looks and feels, I can bring it back to life for you! I could even do a complete rebranding for your business, which means redesigning the website as well as making new logos, headers, and graphics, with the goal of changing the entire style and vibe of your brand.

My career in graphic design began mostly out of necessity. I started my first business with absolutely no experience in graphic design, and I had no clue how many creative images you need on a website! Product images, cover photos, collection images, and that's not even including the whole logo package! I paid for the logo packages for both of my websites, but I've made all the other images, like product photos, cover images, and some of the pictures that are scattered throughout the pages.
When I started graphic designing, I first used Adobe Spark for it's simplicity and user-friendly editing system. As I became more advanced in my graphic designing abilities, I started to get bored with Spark and it's small variety of templates. I had heard great things about Canva, so that's what I use now. There's so much more you can do with the images, and you can even make videos with Canva too! They also have hundreds of thousands of templates, on any and every subject you could think of. I recommend Adobe Spark for beginners, and Canva for more intermediate. I also like LunaPic, for quick, simple edits. They have one of the best one click background remover edits out there, LunaPic's and Canva's are two of my favorites.

I have recently started working with video production, and I already have a few videos under my belt. I'm designing a website for a small metaphysical business, so I made the business owner a short video to put on the front page of her website. You can either watch this video here, or by visiting my Video Production page. When her website launches, you'll be able to view it at callofthecraft.net.
About a month later, I then made a disc golf portfolio video for my mom's boyfriend's birthday (which also happened to land on Father's Day!). He's a semi-professional disc golfer, who is registered in the PDGA (Professional Disc Golf Association) roster. You can view that video here, or by going to my Video Production page.
I also made a video for my dad's TikTok account, all about home insurance for his small town insurance business. View that video on TikTok right here.

My mom and I were gifted our first camera when I was 4 years old. Not to age myself, but it was a very cool film camera that kids now couldn't believe you'd have to have the film developed before you could print the pictures, and see them for the first time! I instantly fell in love with photography, and took pictures of anything I thought was interesting. I won first place in two state fairs in same year for a photography collage I put together when I was 6 years old. From there on out, I would sort of have an on again off again relationship with photography. I do so many other things like making jewelry and skincare, graphic design and web development, and even more, that photography tends to get pushed to the side. I'll always go back to it though, as it was my first creative passion.
