Who is Stephanie Lynn?

I'm an enthusiastic graphic designer in my early twenties. I have been working with HTML and CSS for about five years now. The majority of what I know I have learned on my own. I've also explored a wide range of art media since I was a young girl, including painting, drawing portraits, pastels, sewing, and 3-D media such as clay.

I've found that designing websites and custom Myspace layouts is a great way to combine my artistic gifts and computer skills. I really enjoy what I do! My philosophy is: No matter what you do in life or in business, always keep a smile!

Fashion and Travel

Among my many interests, I enjoy fashion and world travel. I began traveling to other countries at age 16 when I went to Haiti on a youth missions trip. I've also been to Mexico twice, Hong Kong, and Japan. I plan to travel to Europe and Australia in coming years.

My international experiences have helped shape me into the person I am. They have encouraged me to remain open-minded as I explore fashion design in other cultures. I hope to further my design career in the future by creating my own line of fashion apparel and accessories.

What is Sweet Designs?

I started the website sweetdesigns.us in July 2006, simply offering free MySpace layouts. In the first ten months, 1,000,000 people visited the site. Sweet Designs Fashion, LLC was formed in Autumn 2006, and launched an online store and Sweet Designs Magazine, offering a variety of articles and features by and for teenage girls. After writing the inaugural issue on my own, I assembled the Sweet Designs Creative Team, a group of two dozen motivated teenage girls, ages 13 to 19, with a passion for creative writing. Additional projects are planned in the near future.
