hi. my name is shelly swope and i am the lucky lady behind "beganwithabow". i am 25-years-old, have a bachelors degree in communications with an emphasis in journalism and mass media and a masters in business administration. i am currently employed full-time by a religious non-profit organization and design on the side predominantly for family and friends. i have no idea where "beganwithabow" will take me, but i hope to eventually have a career that is somehow associated with creative development and expression and ultimately dream of being a stay at home mom and pray that perhaps God will develop this passion into a source of income and support for my family. for now, i'm just having fun, learning lots, and enjoying today!
