My Journey to Creating
I grew up in a house full of art and creativity, my parents met in art school! I always loved to draw, took all the art classes, and wanted to follow in my parents’ footsteps but never felt good enough to make it a career.
As life went on, I met and married my biggest supporter, had 3 kids, went to college, and lost my creative spark.
Life was so busy and thenI found planning! I picked up my first paper planner in 2017 and never looked back. I joined the amazing planner community online, bought every sticker I could get my hands on, and made life long friendships along the way.
Using my planner functionally and decoratively brought me back to creating. I felt the need to return to art. I dabbled in Procreate,learned hand lettering, and found myself again. It’s been 4 awesome years of finally feeling like more than a wife and mom again.
Starting My Shop
2020 was rough, for everyone. Being stuck at home with 3 kids for a year made me seek out new ways of finding myself. I discovered a planner/creative journal hybrid and started memory planning. I found myself craving more forms of expression and a desire to create more than art in my planner. I wanted to build something bigger for myself and my family.
When thinking about how to build a business and love it I naturally turned to my two favorite pastimes: art and planning! So, in March of 2021 I launched shopaccordingtoali.com to create and sell decorative and functional stickers for everyone!
