>It’s so easy to get project focused and business focused that I sometimes forget the important part of connecting with my readers here on this design site.
For those of you who are new to this site my name is Liz Barber and I am a momma to twin 2 year old boys and wife to the talented, handsome and amazing Aaron Barber (he didn’t pay me to say that…honest!). We live in sunny Southern California and love living here!
Before I had my boys I was on staff as a daycare director for a school-aged childcare center and was also on staff as an associate pastor/youth pastor along with my husband (Which is how we met). All those years working as admin and pastor gave me my first start in learning graphic design and marketing pieces. I guess those were the early seeds of design that started to blossom and grow.
As a way to tap into the creative side of me I decided to launch Sweet Simplicity Designs (September 2010) and it began as primarily a photo card business. After a super slow start I began rethinking my business plan and decided I would pursue learning blog design so I could potentially offer those services on this site as well.
After much studying, using Google (my tutor) and taking a blog design class I officially began offering blog design March 2011!
I love what I do – it allows me to be creative and do something I love. It also gives me the wonderful blessing of staying at home with my 2 boys and to be the mama they need and deserve.
At the core of who I am you will find woman who has been changed by a true & vital relationship with Jesus Christ. That relationship with God spills out into all the other areas of my life- daughter, sister, aunt, wife, mommy and graphic/web designer.
Thanks for hearing my heart and who I am.
I’d love to hear from some of you. Let me know where you live and/or what you do for a living!
Look forward to hearing back.
