Welcome to Stacie

I'm an independent national travel and lifestyle blogger, origami artist, web designer/developer, social media consultant, a certified bone marrow registration advocate, and former couture bridal accessory designer.

This has been a year of change and transition. It began living out of my 4'x6' tiny travel trailer in CA for six months and is concluding in the beautiful state of Michigan. With an invitation to compete in ArtPrize I relocated to Greenville, MI in July to assemble and complete my entry. Now? I love it here so much I just may stay even after. Stay tuned to find out where I end up and what future adventures await.

How I Earn a Living

Custom Web Design

I love working with small businss owners. Having been one myself since 1997 I am keenly aware of the challenges you may face on a daily basis: Too much to do, not enough time in the day, and (for some) a limited marketing budget. That's why I offer unique, custom designed websites, create whimsical branding graphics, and offer website updates charged per minute, not with an hourly minimum. I also offer discounted rates the more hours of consulting you book.

If there's anything I can do to help you market, brand, rebrand, or further develop your small business please don't hesitate to contact me!

Volunteerism & Most Recent Blog Posts

Giving back, helping others, and saving lives was something I discovered was within my reach just over a decade ago. In 2003 I adopted a shelter dog that made me want to share with the world how amazing rescued dogs can be. In 2009 I became a volunteer advocate for the National Marrow Donor Program and in 2010 was certified by the NMDP as a Social Media Active Response Team member. Since then I went on to create an additional website,, to support patients in need and "Be The Match" aka the NMDP.

Marrow Drives
Janet Get Swabbed!

Because time is crucial following a diagnosis, this site is to help patients and their loved ones learn how to quickly and effectively launch a bone marrow or stem cell donor drive. Click Here to learn more. . .

Kitai the Cutest Dog Ever

Cutest Dog

Meet Kitai... A shelter dog who lived a fabulous life! From pound puppy to real life celebrity (in certain small circles). Kitai's career was to convince people to adopt their next pet from a shelter.

Helping Tami
After being diagnosed with a blood cancer similar to leukemia, my cousin Tami found her marrow match, received her transplant, and continues to recover. If you're a match you can save a life by donating your stem cells or marrow to a patient in need. Testing is pain free and donating almost is. Click Here
