This website is in the midst of transitions as I experiment with — everything.
If you’re here you probably know me in the real life, if not you must have been clicking the internet links. Either way - thanks! I’m happy you stopped by. It’ll be nicer soon - fill out the comment form at the bottom of this page if you’d like to know when it’s all put together.


Hey. hi. hello.

Quick thoughts. Links to places. Profound quotes & silly bits. Stuff I want you to see. All that stuff goes here.


Art is anything you can get away with.

I never thought of myself as an artist while I was growing up. The things I drew never looked like what they were supposed to and art teachers shook their head at me time after time. Then SARK taught me we’re all artists and my life got infinitely better.


Notes from ShellyCentral

It’s where I’m planning to put longer posts and things I wrote on purpose.



There are few things I love more than going on an adventure to experience a new place — especially when it’s a place someone I love lives. On this page you’ll find links to stories about my travels.

About Me


I’m Shelly.
I’ve been told I’m weird a lot, but I seem pretty normal to me. Perhaps I’m just used to myself.

I’m a Cancer with Capricorn rising. I’m an ENFP. I’m a GenX empty nester. I’m a birthmom and a brand new grandmother. I’m a BA in English from the University of Kansas which I can see from my house. I’m an artist and a writer and an adventurer. A mother and a daughter and a sister and an auntie. I love summer time and nerd stuff and musicals and reading outside.

That’s the best I can do for now.
If you’d like to know more, come in, look around, and make yourself at home.


Something to Say?

I would love to hear it.

This should make it easier.
