Hi! I’m Sarah Khandjian, but all my friends call me Sarah Hearts. I’m the daughter of a print expert and graphic designer, and have always had a love for art and a strong passion for design. I followed my interests to Tallahassee, Florida, where I honed my skills at Florida State University. While there, I developed an affinity for color theory, print making, and Adobe Illustrator. I graduated summa cum laude and with a BFA in graphic design.
I started Sarah Hearts in 2006 as a means to create handmade items and supplement my meager college income. I created handmade bags and screen printed apparel that I sold online and in the FSU student union. A couple years later, I married my love, Kevin. We had a simple, handmade wedding where I hand screen printed our stationery and made all the decorations. I started blogging that year to document and share all of my handmade wedding creations with my out-of-town family and friends. My brand has evolved over time and now is a blog where I celebrate making everyday special. I share DIY projects and design inspiration five days a week because I believe we are made to live creatively.
I am also a freelance graphic designer and create social stationery, logos, branding, apparel design, posters, and web sites. I currently live in Winter Park, Florida with my husband, Kevin. When I’m not creating things, I enjoy hanging out at the barn with my horse, Justin, and our dog, Darcy.
