Hi! I’m Stacey. I’m a Designer, content manager and cultivator of creativity, specializing in WordPress. I work at MoneyGap Limited, hustling my way through an endless amount of content, polishing, organising and publishing. I’m a pretty shy person, am a firm advocate of the use of Mindfulness and probably should have been born in a different era, but I also love helping people achieve their goals.
Welcome to my corner of the web.
This space is where I kick back and discuss the things that mean the most to me. To name a few topics, they include raising a young family, exploring design in all it’s beautiful manifestations, navigating health issues that forever seem to be setting me back and pushing through them to see the light on the other side. Simply put there’s no running theme to this blog.
While many people use their websites as a source of income, I’m not really here to do that. I don’t want to feel pigeon-holed and restricted in what I want to share with you and I also don’t wish to lose sight of the simple things in life that mean something to me, this blog being one of them.
More about me
On the verge of hitting 30, I’m a mother to 3 (including twins). I live in Devon, the UK with my partner, living a simple, quiet life. Well, at least we try to. It’s not easy to do with three young children running around, but that’s one of the things we treasure the most.
Early in 2016, I suffered a nasty stroke, which left me unable to type, think clearly and unable to continue a career as a freelance writer. It came as a massive shock considering I was only 28 at the time and prompted a complete rethink of my lifestyle. I was forced in that time to slow down and take things much easier. No more working all hours of the day and night and no more shouldering the burden of family life on my own.
Up until then, I had spent years caring for my eldest son who was born with a congenital birth defect, leaving him unable to eat. I was too stubborn to ask for help and with the advent of my stroke, I had to swallow my pride and ask.
Since then we have made steady progress. I will never be the person I was pre-stroke, but the person I am now is someone I feel is more aware, thoughtful and open to suggestions.
So I thank you for taking the time to read this, and I hope you enjoy the stories I share here. If you ever wish to get in touch, you can do so by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org or filling in my contact form.
