Welcome to the world of Mrs. Padilly.
This blog serves as the personal blog and portfolio of Mrs. Padilly (aka DM Johnson).
Mrs. Padilly started MrsPadilly.wordpress.com back in 2012, when she launched into the world of blogging. This original site now serves as her portfolio where she displays her digital designs, photography, art, and publications.
It is also the place where she comes to connect with the larger blogging community.
In between blog posts or adding to her portfolio, she spends most her time at MrsPadillysTravels.com (launched 2014).
MrsPadillysTravels.com is her popular outdoor lifestyle and travel site (which grew out of this original blog) for Living Life in the Outdoors ~ Texas Style. A website centered around Glamping and camping, she hopes to inspire her readers with unique and practical how-to projects. Mrs. Padilly also gives Texas travel tips from her boating, camping, and road trip adventures.
Many first time visitors to MrsPadillysTravels.com go there to read one of her articles on her popular glamping makeover series about her Casita Travel Trailer. This summer (2017), She started a new makeover series on her 1961 Shasta Airflyte Reissue.
Her life as DM Johnson and Mrs. Padilly intertwine together, past and present, combining her passions for design, travel, and storytelling through the pen and lens of Mrs. Padilly.
As a digital designer/writer/artist, she creates digital media (print/web) and written content for local clients and herself, which includes MrsPadillysTravels.com.
She is also an educator (retired 2011), with over 20 years experience in higher education.
For sixteen of those years, she was fortunate to teach in the rapidly growing and fast-paced field of visual communications.
Yearning to have more time to pursue her own creative projects, she decided to retire early from her teaching career to launch her freelance design business. It was at this time she took on the pen name Mrs. Padilly* for her blogging and writing interests.
As Mrs. Padilly, she has built a strong identity as a glampy, campy, artsy-craftsy outdoor lifestyle and travel blogger. In fact, many people in the blogosphere know her only as Mrs. Padilly.
Of course, as someone who thrives on change, she have a few new projects in the works, and she looks forward to sharing some of these ideas and inspirations right here on MrsPadilly.wordpress.com.
She hope you choose to follow along so she can get a chance to know you, and your blogging interests!
