The Birth of Dunham Design Company

"Guess what! I'm pregnant!" I told my husband the exciting news over the phone.  I had always dreamed of becoming a stay-at-home mom and was fortunate enough to be able to stay home with our first child-something that I had prayed fervently about.  I bid farewell to my career as a Grief Specialist with the local area Hospice and started this new chapter of my life as a mom.

Don't get me wrong.  Life was not all rosy.  It was a big life change.  There were health and financial stressors.  But God pulled us through.  I was able to explore my creative interests such as decorating, entertaining, DIY projects, and writing.  My love of photography was born out of capturing my son's beautiful face with just the right lighting.  Planning our son's birthday parties led to my discovery of party printables and graphic design.  In 2011, I started a blog called Mommy's Idea Notebook.  Blogging is the perfect union between my creative interests and graphic design.

In 2012, I opened the Dunham Design Company Etsy Shop which was formerly called Mommy's Idea Notebook.  I began selling digital party printables and branched out into selling digital art prints and professionally printed pillows with my designs.  I often worked late into the night and lost track of the time as I immersed myself in graphic design.  I loved it! For me, inspiration comes from vintage travel posters, vintage copyright-free artwork, home decor, travel, and the world around me.

Two years later, my health took a nosedive.  Multiple tests, many doctor visits, and thousands of dollars later, I discovered I had gallstones and an immune condition called ITP.  This led to big changes in my diet such as removing gluten and the birth of my second blog called Goodbye Gluten Hello Health.  In our frenzy to find a cure for my ITP, God led me to a site where people were discussing natural ways they helped themselves.  I tried one and it's working!

Today, I am working on streamlining Dunham Design Company.  I have decided to call the blog, Facebook, and Pinterest by the same name of Dunham Design Company.  I am working on transferring every post from Mommy's Idea Notebook and Goodbye Gluten Hello Health to the new Dunham Design Company blog- a huge undertaking to say the least.
