Hey guys! Its been a long time. I’ve wanted to post more regularly, but life has gotten kinda hectic between homeschooling and growing the business. Things are even more hectic since I moved out of the studio. I definitely need a larger space, and I am eager to move my office back out of my home, but in the meantime I have been blessed to find a really cool co-working space that I love. Earlier this week I did a quick photo shoot there for the recent production we received. I still have to get more product and lifestyle shots, but it felt good to get the interim shoot done. I’m gearing up for a holiday pop-up next month so the schedule wont slow down until after the holidays, and that’s fine, I’m enjoying the process. I’ll pop back in with more deets soon. For now you can peep some #bts (behind the scenes) imagery from the shoot below! xo
A wonderful day of inspirational stories, sharing + connecting . . .
I shared my story to a packed house!
I was blessed to share the stage with these beautifully inspiring women . . .
So thankful for the friends who came out to support . . .
A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of attending and speaking at the 2nd Annual Boss Sister’s Entrepreneur Empowerment Brunch held in Long Beach CA, at The Grand. I can’t tell you how much this event blessed me, and from what I hear, it blessed all the women in attendance that day. I was able to share the stage with some amazing women. I was encouraged, and inspired and left the event with a full spirit. It was truly a day of female empowerment. I wanted to quickly share with you how this came about, as many of you know I am not a public speaker although I am quite an excellent public listener. ;)
At the beginning of 2018 I was thinking about what I wanted to accomplish in the new year. I decided to choose one word for the new year, that would help me to remain focused and keep my tasks and projects in alignment with my word. Well, during quiet time one morning God gave me the word to focus on. He said He wanted me to be more visible.
This word was definitely from God, because visibility is not a word I like to use in relation to myself, however, I am smart enough to know that one can only remain invisible for so long. I also know that to do the things He has called me to do, I must be visible in some way. So, I chose the word VISIBILITY for 2018.
Fast forward to this past April . . . Deanna Lewis, co-creator of Boss Sisters Who Brunch, reached out to me to ask me to be a speaker at the event. She said The Lord had put it on her heart to ask me to participate early one morning while she was still in bed. Isn’t it amazing how God works? I automatically accepted, knowing that I could not possibly say no, even though I was semi-cringing inside. I asked her what she wanted me to speak about and her words were very simple: “Just share your story. ” Well that’s what I did, in a nutshell. Click the video below to peep if you like, and be on the lookout, I hear Deanna is planning on hosting another event in the Fall. :)

I was recently asked to style a shoot for my friend, Kristen, whose modeling career is taking off. I’m always honored to be asked to lend my vision to creative projects that fall in line with what I’m doing. It was a fun collaboration, plus we had a really great team, which makes working on projects like this A LOT of fun.
This week my husband + kiddos are off for Spring Break. Unfortunately, I’ve been fighting allergies for the last 2 weeks and they have deceptively gotten worse just when I thought I was getting better. Nevertheless, the show must go on. It’s been really busy around here lately. My son will be a teenager in a matter of days, and I’m excited to have a quick family get away on the books. The weather is changing, the days are getting longer, and my mind is full of new designs to be executed. I’m thankful for the future at hand. Some of this lighter mood is probably reflected in this week’s Mood Board, a nod to the first glimpses of summer.

Pen addict that I am, I am thoroughly in love with my new Kaweco fountain pen. I have recently added a few others to my stash that I will be sharing soon as well. There’s nothing like an amazing pen + a quality piece of paper to jot ideas or sketches with . . . simple pleasures. Do you have a favorite pen or paper that you like to use? If so, please share!
