Hello there!

I’m Emory, the creator, designer, artist, and writer here at Pretty, Practical by Emory. Pretty, Practical is the name of my line of hand drawn, hand lettered planners and journals. The planners follow a bullet joural-like system and aesthetic, without the time investment of having to set it up. (Don’t know what a bullet journal is? Find out here!) But enough about that, let’s talk about meeeeee.

I’m a 22 year old bisexual college dropout working toward recovery from abuse and mental illness. I recently moved to an alpaca ranch in Schulenburg, Texas and I’m trying to get used to rural living. My family consists of my wonderful boyfriend, Adam, and my fuzz loaf (puppy), Kenshō. I run on coffee, art, and bullet journaling.

Currently, I’m waiting to become an Official Texas Resident and applying for scholarships so I can go back to school for art education. In the meantime I’m building my planner and journal empire (okay, so maybe it’s not an empire yet… but it will be!) and working on improving myself each and every day.

You can expect posts about recovery, motivation, productivity, organization, and, of course, bullet journaling. You can also expect sarcasm, positivity, and encouragement. I want to get to know you, so feel free to message me! Seriously, I mean it. Hearing from you would absolutely make my day.
