Hi, y’all! I’m Erin, owner of Trusner Designs, wife, mamma, and part time food and farm life blogger. I’m so honored to be here with Savannah Sevens to share a little about two of my passions - graphic design and being in the kitchen.
I started Trusner Designs in 2011 as a side hobby creating invitations, and four years later found myself snowed under with a pile of wonderful clients and projects I couldn’t wait to wake up to every morning. That led to many a sleepless night burning the midnight oil building my business while working full time in the corporate world during the day. In 2016, I knew I had to make some changes or risk severe burnout. I moved to the farm to be with my now husband and the solitude was JUST what I needed.
Then came yet another life decision looming large in front of me. With a load of self-doubt and a sore hand from all the number crunching, I took the leap and made the move to being a full-time entrepreneur in the spring of 2017. Holy heck, was that scary. But now, Trusner Designs was truly all mine! I could spend the day designing for the people I adored and working on projects that set my soul on fire.
I went from the hustle and bustle of city work life in a pair of sky-high heels to a farm in the middle of nowhere Oklahoma with my dog as my only staff member and a muddy pair of Ariats on my feet. I was (and still am) in total bliss.
Trusner Designs has evolved over the years, as the business coach in me will tell you is supposed to happen. I went from creating invitations for birthdays and small occasions to a full-service graphic design company offering custom wedding stationery, small business branding and marketing services, and a fan-favorite yearly holiday card collection. I do the last one just for pure fun. 😊 My clients are my people. I absolutely adore what I do… in case you couldn’t tell.
And maybe it’s the reminiscent farm girl in me, but I still somehow always turn to my old recipe box for those treasured eats I know everyone will love. There is something so nostalgic about seeing my grandmother’s handwriting on her pecan pie recipe card she gave me years ago. I hope my grandchildren feel the same one day about mine.
So when Savannah Sevens approached me about collaborating with them, I couldn’t say yes quickly enough. Without further ado, I give you the Trusner Designs X Savannah Sevens ranch life recipe card sets! One is curated with copper brands and the other is a simple southwest style, both perfectly suited to the farm or ranch kitchen. I’ve included a pre-printed recipe card for the S7s team to share with you when you snag an order! My Ranch beef and noodles is a family favorite, and I hope your crew loves it just as much.
I believe in simple, approachable, elevated food. It doesn’t have to be complicated to taste restaurant-quality. Naturally by now you know I can’t leave here without giving you a couple more recipes to try!
Thank you, thank you for letting me share space with you today. I love who I work for, and I love who I cook for. Find me on Instagram @trusnerdesigns or @thefischerupper and let’s connect. I adore meeting new faces!
