Hi there! I’m Rachel Shingleton, and I describe myself as a designer/blogger/shopgirl/stylist at Pencil Shavings Studio which I founded in 2008. I live in Oklahoma City with my husband Simon and two boys Jude and Archer. I was trained as a graphic designer at the University of Oklahoma and after the birth of my first son Jude, I created the blog at Pencil Shavings Studio as a way to build creative community and feature the creative projects (branding, custom invitations, etc.) that I was working on. After a few years, I started designing products and launched my shop. And things have kind of snowballed since then!
How do you take care of yourself so that you’re physically and mentally prepared to be your best self for others?
