Press check day for the lovely @thewelldot action pads. It was so fun taking my littles on a tiny field trip. Thanks #josephcwoodardprinting for helping a #mompreneure. Happy Friday!
Well Dot has been one of my favorite clients. The owner is a #creativeentrepreneur and so #amazing in so many ways. She has launched her business after 25 years streamlining her own process, tools, tips, organization, and #lifetools. Spending just a few minutes with @rholland25 over coffee will leave you refreshed, #enlightened, and encouraged. She is so good at helping others #Doallthingswell and I have enjoyed having her as a client. . Over the last 6 months we went through the struggle of figuring out her business, her brand, and her purpose. I love helping new #businesses figure out the backend of their business. Without #strategy, #clarity, and #insight your business has no purpose. You can’t design your #brand until you have clarity and direction. . Rebekah would say that designing a #businessbrand is much like taking a look at your own life. #reflection and #gratitude are important not just for your personal life but also for your business. www.thewelldot.com
Today I'm working from @yellowdogbread in #raleigh. Such a cute place and they have really spicy #chai which is fantastic. I'm waiting for @edgeofurge to open so I can pick up a few last minute #handmadegoods for my personal #brand #photoshoot tomorrow with @dianemckinneyphoto . So much to do and so little time. Today my mantra is #justbreathe and #letgo . I have a terrible time letting the #details go sometimes and my husband tells me I need to stop worrying and just relax. Today I wont make extra work for myself and will just enjoy the process. :)
Best day ever! I had the most wonderful day away with my husband. Had a awesome dinner @saltlimecabo in #Raleigh. Best shrimp tacos ever! And then we had a classic #blizzard at #dq...cookie dough of course! Then back to our hotel for some snuggles and movies without children. Today we went to the @ncartmuseum and I giggled while I druled over some art. I love art and history and could spend the whole day learning about art. My husband on the other hand is not so thrilled. He supports me and knows how much it fills my heart and soul with light. He is such a keeper. . .. Tomorrow is back to the grind and client meetings! My tank is full though. Bring on the week!!
Today I'm getting ready to take a night in the town in #raleigh. My husband and I are celebrating our 7 year anniversary without kids! Cant wait to meet some new people and find some #handmade #things for my photo shoot next Friday with @dianemckinneyphoto . . . So much to do but we need this time to relax and enjoy each other. Cheers to the weekend!
I have been terrible about keeping up with my usual posts for #themakerslist and I am so sorry. I hope you forgive me. I have some cool things going on in my studio…So, hopefully you have a little grace to throw my way? So, finally here is some #amazing #handcrafted #maker #goodness for your #fridayvibes . Todays #artisan I love is a maker straight out of #nashvilletn . #KellyMaxwell the artisan from @littlebranchfarm creates some really amazing work. Take a good long look. Link is in the comments!
I feel so much like a zombie lately. Anyone else feeling a bit whipped? Not the whipped cream on your starbucks latte whipped, but the can’t ever catch a break whipped? I have been so busy getting the kids used to 5 days a week at preschool (loving the work hours) but can’t catch up with my house chores or get a break to myself. . My mentor suggested I schedule my time by the half hour. It is awesome and seems to help me feel less guilty when I work and feel some freedom to play (without feeling guilty I’m not working) with the kids too. Knowing what time I have and what is actually possible in a day helps me let my high expectations down and feel more accomplished. I mean we are only given so many hours in a day…and thank God for that! . . So here is too schedules…and giving ourselves enough grace to schedule in some mom time and not feeling guilty! Go get em. . #mom-be #zombie #sleepdeprived #schedule #businessowner #crazy #brandstrategist #busymom #busylife #prioritize #plan #play #work
Ok so lately I have been super busy finishing up some remaining #design projects. #Brand style guides, #website projects, #logos, and all sorts of fun stuff. I have also been hard at work #rebranding myself too! Yes. It's time. So I am giving you all a #sneak #peak ...this, beautiful block of colors are mine. I will be keeping my usual teal color and including some fun bold colors...to really speak. Turns out while doing some of my own #brandresearch I am much like #bernie sanders meets #Audry #Hepburn. What do you think about my #color adventure? . . . #visualidentity #visualidentitydesign #brandstrategist #rebrandinglaunch #handmade #themakersandshakers #handcraftedbrands #makersgonnamake #makersmovement
I had a wonderful afternoon today discussing #marketing #branding #wine and other facinating topics with Daryl from @locklearwinery ! One of my favorite clients to work with. He has more than doubled his business in the last year and is looking forward to a more cohesive and engaging visual identity and brand. Cant wait to see what happens next year!
I am proud to announce the logo for my dear friend and client @therepurposedhomedesign . I am loving this direction and I think it fits her business perfectly. What do you guys think? .
