Who is behind Dot&Ink Designs?
My name is April Sanderson. I am a single mom to two teens; working from home [owner of Dot&Ink Designs]; and homeschooling my daughter (a junior); my son is in his freshman year in College. I have been a homeschooling mom for 14 years now.
Life is busy, full, and very blessed.
I can’t imagine working any other way [than from home]. I have also worked on location at various admin jobs as a temporary fill-in for small businesses over the years. What I really enjoy is creating. Mostly I love to put words, colors & fonts together – whether it’s for print or web.
Besides spending time with my children & creating graphics – I spend my free time reading, sewing, painting (decor type), and my most recent favorite – taking photographs. I don’t like editing photos (unless it’s to completely remove something – such as a wayward branch or telephone/electrical wires), so my goal is to take pictures as I actually see with my eyes or look for what I have in my mind… All photographs on this website are mine.
