From Design Sponge to The Everygirl, Sarah Dickerson uses her corner of the internet to share her life adventures on the blog Chic Sprinkles Design and Photography.
A dog-loving designer, Dickerson uses her blog to not only share her life’s adventures, but to share photography, design, laughter, and a look at the world from the eyes of her shih tzu Coco Bean.
“She is my muse, child, and my bff,” laughs Dickerson.
“I am a designer, photographer, animal lover, plant eater, wife, and dog mom,” says Dickerson. “History fascinates me, Steve Martin makes me laugh, old white brick homes steal my heart, God is always the first and last person I talk to daily, and I will always prefer to hang out with the dog while at a party.”
That’s why when you read Dickerson’s blog, Chic Sprinkles, you’ll find that there’s a variety of topics covered, but all of them serve as a creative outlet to combine Dickerson’s passions.
Dickerson graduated from the University of Cincinnati’s College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning with bachelor’s degree in digital design. Now, with a full-time job in corporate America, Dickerson enjoys using Chic Sprinkles as her creative outlet.
“I needed a creative outlet to design the things that I love,” she says. “Started a blog opened up a whole other door. It was challenging at first because I had no idea what I was doing, and I’m naturally a shy person. Putting myself out there was a little weird for me, but I’m so very glad I kept going. It has connected me with so many awesome people from all over the world.”
In recent years, as Chic Sprinkles has continued to grow, Dickerson has opted to do less but with more passion. She’s mainly focused on design, photography, and animals, which she has done through Pretty Fluffy and Spared.org.
In addition to Chic Sprinkles, Dickerson is also a featured writer on the website Pretty Fluffy, which features pet-friendly DIYs, animal trends, cruelty-free/organic picks, and stylized photography.
Since joining the Pretty Fluffy team in 2012, Dickerson has written plenty of feature articles as well as threw in her hand at designing a new eBook called “52 Weeks of Treats,” which she worked on with Pretty Fluffy founder Serena Faber Nelson.
“It’s a go-to book for simple and healthy dog treat recipes,” says Dickerson. “We’ve been featured in Modern Dog Magazine as well as numerous websites for our easy DIYs, eBook, and blog features. It’s been amazing, and it all started with a little blog that I thought would only last a few weeks.”
Dickerson says she and her content have been featured on The Everygirl, Modern Dog Magazine, Cesar’s Way, Dog Milk, Design Sponge.
