Hi, I'm Shawnna

I create graphics and design resources for bloggers, crafters and biz owners; providing a fun girly style for your brand or products, with a design-it-yourself approach for easy access and affordability.

When I'm not designing I'll be out walking the dogs, binging on Netflix or curled up with a good book.
