Scribbles From Emily is a faith and lifestyle blog. I believe in making life beautiful, changing the world for the better, and celebrating everyday.  I’ve never been one to stick to a niche, so here you’ll find craft tutorials,  home decor, posts on ethical style, all mixed in with marriage and motherhood.

He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.
-Ecclesiastes 3:11

When I started blogging in June 2009, I recorded my adventures as a newlywed and kept up with my family after moving to Arizona. Since then, I discovered it could be so much more: a place to meet new friends, growencourage, and make a difference. 

I passionately believe in the power of words, and I hope to encourage and inspire with the ones I write. I love Jesus, and I want to follow Him wherever it takes me. I am a small-town girl who married her best friend, and we moved across the country to the Phoenix Valley, starting our adventures in Arizona in 2010.

I graduated college with a degree in Technical Communication in 2012, and I’ve undertaken a few endeavors into entrepreneur-ism  with a marriage blog, a watercolor stationery company, and an embroidery and quilt pattern company. I currently work full time as the editor for a non-profit’s magazine.

In July 2015, Edison, our little man, joined us!

A few of my favorite things: writing, our little adventures, classic literature (and I include the Harry Potter books in that category!), decorating and remodeling our homecrafting, the ocean, the color blue, pretty fonts, painting, and coffee.

That’s a bit about me, but I’m looking forward to meeting you! Make yourself known in the comments, see what new project I’m working on, or what adventures we’re having on Instagram.
