i'm marta dansie. i fell in love with writing in the ninth grade. i've been doodling the details in the margins ever since. i am a graphic designer by trade. i run Marta Dansie Design LLC from a corner of my home. (if you need a cool logo or stunning invitation, let me know. i also do custom calligraphy, business cards and my specialty is book layout. i'm big on helping out small businesses!) i strive to be a devoted mom and wife because that's the most important thing. my husband is my hero and we have a simple happy life together. i believe in Christ and am a devout mormon–though i don't often post on religious topics–my beliefs have shaped who i am. follow this link to read more about my religion. among other things i am a fan of pretty paper, typography, chocolate milk, double stick tape and pop culture. blogging tends to be my happy place.
i love blogging and am currently going on my sixth year with this obsession. martawrites is where i keep my personal memoirs, design inspiration, online discoveries, favorite photos, diy crafts, recipes and efforts in handmade endeavors. i also tend to rave about things i love (including my three year old) and give my two cents about everything. i do not currently keep a facebook or twitter account (once i figure out how you people manage it all, i may jump aboard), instead my blog is where i spill my thoughts on the page.
being raised by a writer and a historian, i am mad about supporting small businesses and up and coming entrepreneurs. if you have an etsy shop you think i'd enjoy, send me a link to your wares. oh and i love a good penpal, so please say hello. i am not paid for blogging therefore, i blog to the beat of my own drum. thank you for reading. every writer needs an audience and i love getting to know you.
i'd love to hear from you. your comments and inquiries are so appreciated, however i am not always able to respond to every email. thanks for being awesome. martaATmartawritesDOTcom.
p.s. this photo is a favorite of mine (i didn't even know it was being snapped). we were on a train heading to kyoto, japan. (gorgeous!) and i was attempting to jot down the details as they sped by.
