I’m Ella Boleynn.
indie crafter, small business owner, freelance writer, graphic designer, poet, frugal living ninja, nerdfighter
I am an idealist (INFP), and I believe that there is good in all people – but I’ve seen enough of the world to know that it isn’t always the most visible…
Now, I’m living my happily ever after – building a successful indie craft brand with the love of my life and helping other small business owners make their dreams come true. My life is nothing like I would have imagined it a decade ago, but it is so much richer than I realized it could be. Recovery from trauma is a life-long battle, and it’s one I believe we all fight daily. May we heal together through words and genuine connection.
My qualifications range from published poems and conference presentations to my grandmother’s glowing reviews and a young author’s trophy from the first grade.
I’m Living in Retrospect.
Living in Retrospect – (v.) looking to the past for inspiration you can use today
Living in Retrospect is a lifestyle blog dedicated to finding beauty in everyday life. It has changed dramatically through the years – as have I – as have you – as has all. I started the blog so that I could help others live more happily. Check out the categories below for some of my most-loved topics – at the time I originally organized everything in 2015.
