Okay, friends, this one is a personal project and I LOVE how it turned out! Walnut Hill Homestead is the name we lovingly gave to our four + acre property we bought a year and a half ago. With walnut trees lining the back of the property and a big hill from top to bottom, […]

There have been so many times in the last few years that I’ve written out my ideal week – from tracking my daily tasks on an every half hour basis to just dreaming up what I would like each day to look like. As nice as it sounded, I felt like I was just going […]

When you’re a business owner, you can never invest too much in education or coaching, I truly believe that. While spending money on experts might seem counter-intuitive when you want to be seen as an expert yourself, gaining insight from those who are farther along in their business ownership journey, whether in years or dollars […]

How are your 2022 goals coming, friend? Do you need a reset and a recallibration? Cause same. This time of year always gets busier than I imagine it will be, and it often leads me to get off track from my goals. Basically, they go out the window. Sometimes, we just need a reminder of […]

When you own your own creative business, making the distinction between work time and actual life can be tricky – your brain never stops thinking about your business.  Between incoming emails and inquiries, new ideas popping up at the most inopportune times and needing to be a good friend, parent or partner, you need tools […]

I’ve always craved a community of designers who aren’t trying to compete for clients, where we build each other up, share tips + tricks, bounce ideas off of one another and maybe refer work to one another if a client or inquiry isn’t the best fit. Instead of waiting […]

A few years ago, I started to feel the overwhelm creep in and I had no clue how I was going to get all of the to dos on my list completed. I was feeling burned out and like work was spiraling out of control. I knew I needed to either get some help or […]

When I first started out in branding design, I worked way differently than I do now. I designed multiple (and I mean multiple) concepts for my clients, I gave them just one logo and I charged pennies for my work. Then I started providing a little bit more for my branding clients, and continually added […]

If you’re anything like me, you’re having a little trouble getting motivated to set some big (or small!) goals for 2022. In my case, I know what I want the year to feel like but I haven’t gotten clear on what I want 2022 to bring for my business. I need a kick in the […]
