Hi there! I’m Hannah, Catholic Christian, teen blogger & entrepreneur, runner & workout enthusiast, fashion lover and avid decorator.

I’m passionate about empowering teen girls and women to live out their God-given dreams and purpose.

  • First and foremost, I love Jesus and believe that He has given each person talents and dreams to use for His good. (psalm 27:13 & john 12:27-28 anyone?)
  • I’m more than slightly obsessed with picking out cute outfits. (for myself & other people, I just love fashion)
  • I’d consider myself a pretty creative person… I’m currently into photography, music & watercoloring (although I’m a total beginner and not super great, but it’s fun!) and in the past I’ve done theater, ATC card making, paper crafting, sewing & doll making.
  • I’ve had three different Etsy shops over the past five years. O.o. I think I’ve finally figured out how to make Etsy go with my current shop.
  • I’ll switch up the dΓ©cor in my bedroom at least once every few months, usually after a trip to Target.
  • I’m super passionate about healthy lifestyle and I love making healthy recipes (you’ll probably see quite a few around the blog)!

The original Striped Plaid In the fall of 2016 I had just started a new online school program and was required to create a blog and upload a photo as part of a computer course I was taking. Once I started blogging, it just sort of clicked for me and I continued doing it. I remember dreaming of having followers and posting pretty pictures. I continued to blog, gaining little to no traction. Eventually I got my first real follower, and they kept coming. My content and photos improved and I continued to grow.

Almost 5 years later, here I am. It’s honestly just so crazy that I’ve been doing this for almost 5 years. Blogging is something that I really love doing, and hope to continue into my career life, and beyond.

Over the years, my content has switched a little, until I finally found my niche in lifestyle blogging. This blog started out as a craft blog (Crafts of all Seasons) where I posted craft tutorials and recipes. Now I consider this blog more of a lifestyle blog for teenage girls. I hope you’ll enjoy and also feel free to message me any time! I absolutely love hearing from my readers! ❀

    1. Oh, I have a like/dislike relationship with Pinterest! I’m either totally into it and it can suck hours out of my life…. and then I realize I’m wasting so much time so I totally delete it lol There’s so many great ideas on there though, there’s a season for everything!

  2. Hi Hannah! I read your Little Women blog post, and I think it’s great. I was just wondering what is a blog button, and how to get/make one? I would swap but I don’t know how. God bless!- Jo
