I am southern girl transplanted to North West Indiana where I call a little yellow house my home. Being creative has always been a passion of mine - it is a way of life. I started out by covering my grandmother's floor with clippings from McCall's magazines when I was in elementary school, I studied ceramics and earn a BFA from a small college in the heart of the Old Dominion (Virginia!), and have taken my passion for creativity to the next level through blogging & posting videos to YouTube.
The Five Sixteenths Blog is a blog all about me, my life, what I'm interested in. As a Sagittarius, I'm a wanderer & I'm always curious. This has lead me attempt to try my hand at something new everyday. The topics I am passionate about vary but currently you'll find DIY inspiration, lifestyle posts, cultivating a mindful life, pretty & functional planning tips, and the general vibe of living a creative life.
On the 516vlogs YouTube channel you'll find a crap ton of videos teaching you how to be creative yet functional in your planner. Want to learn to make your own planner stickers? I've got a video for that! You'll find personal insight, planner reviews, plan with me videos, and tutorials to make & cut planner sticker with your Cricut Explore. I want to expand this content to include other aspects of creative living, not just creative planning!
I feel that my calling is to teach. To enlighten others. To share what I've learned, as I learn it, and in a way that I've not been able to find around the web. When I can't find the blog posts I want to read, I write them. When I can't find the videos I want to watch, I create them. When I can't find the tools I'm looking for, I make them.
So why did I start a Patreon page?
Because I love to teach, I love to share, and I want to teach & share more! I want to make more for you. I want to explore more for you. I want to be able to dedicate time to creating things that I love and things that others love. And the sad reality is time = money.
Patrons have always been a huge way an artist can contribute their work to society. A modern day patron would mean more time, more supplies, and quality content for you to enjoy.
I thank you for your support - whether you become a patron or not - because without you....I'd be talking to myself on the internet!
I love you all! Thank you!
