Hi! My name is Alex and I am thrilled that you are visiting my website! I have always been into arts & crafts, helping our community and designing. I started Make It Yours By Alex so I could do what I love.....make memories through personal items and special events.
I have an Associates Degree in Accounting and I am an Army Veteran that served for 6 years. I graduated from military school as a Multimedia Illustrator. While deployed, I created a website and published the weekly newsletters. These special editions were sent to other bases as well as back home to people interested in hearing some local stories of our tour. At the end of my contract I married a wonderful man and now have two energetic boys. I live in the North Georgia Mountains in the beautiful town of Ellijay where I am very blessed to be surrounded by friends and family.
My life is very rich and full and I would not have it any other way!
I would like to leave you with this beautiful poem by L.R. Knosk
Life is amazing. And then it's awful. And then it's amazing again. And in between the amazing and the awful, it's ordinary and mundane and routine. Breathe in the amazing, hold on through the awful, and relax and exhale during the ordinary. That's just living the heartbreaking, soul-healing, amazing, awful, ordinary life. And it's breathtakingly beautiful.
