What I Learned While Away from the Internet for 3 Weeks

Well hello! It has been awhile, and boy are there some stories and new things I have to tell you all about!  Since I dropped off the face of this blog, I've had many inquiries asking 1) if I was still alive and 2) If I could make a website for them.  So here's the big secret... The last time I blogged it was May 11, and May 12th I had gastric … [Read More...]

Video-Blogging

The Fine Art of Video Blogging…

Hey all! Well, I finally did it. Video blogging at its finest. Admittedly, the first video was a lot like trying to wrangle a toddler. Lots of making faces, and not actually getting to the point. The second was better, yet I may have bored myself near to death. Despite all that, video blogging is FUN. I have already captured footage that … [Read More...]

The Two Books that Changed My Business

I have a self-help book problem.  Admittedly, I haven't read a fiction book since the first Twilight came out. (Which is perhaps what scared me into sticking with non-fiction.)  I love reading anything that will help me better my business, my mind, my body, my spirit, and so on.  I have read Martha Stewart's Homekeeping Handbook, as well as a book … [Read More...]

How to Run a Business When “Life” Gets in the Way

Imagine for a moment, something miraculous happens.  You have a full day to yourself, a quiet corner at Starbucks, your trusty laptop, and a plan. Then, the inevitable happens.  A phone call from your child's nurses office, that initial tickle in the back of your throat indicating the onset of a cold, the blue screen of death...any number of … [Read More...]

Why I Chose to No Longer Have a “Waiting List”

A few years ago, I began designing blogs and websites for a waiting list of clients that, at one point, reached an astounding 8 months long.  (Those were some very patient people I tell ya.) I noticed other designers with long queues, the record holder being 18 months. (Maybe she was handing out adorable chubby infants too, I don't know.) As … [Read More...]

Printable Wireframes for Your Blog or Website

Spending too much time on the computer zaps my inspiration quicker than a trip to the hardware store. Or worse yet, Wal-Mart. Sometimes you have to bust out blank paper and pens, pencils, and admittedly - Crayons, to snap out of an inspirational rut. So here are some simple printables that can help you organize your thoughts, content, design, and … [Read More...]

Free Graduation Printable

Two of my nieces are graduating this month.  Before I broke down sobbing, I managed to create this adorable graduation printable for Today's Creative Blog and Spoonful.com.  It's amazing how inspiration strikes when you're pouting about the times you used to paint their nails and have girl's nights together.  That said, I couldn't be more proud of … [Read More...]

My Secret Tool for Creativity

Before we open the top secret creative vault, let's just acknowledge a few things. It has been awhile since I've written a new blog post, and what does that usually mean? a) I'm dead or b) I wanted to wait until everything was PERFECT.  So you'll now find a new Genesis Child Theme "Miss Organized" in the shop, a readily available online course … [Read More...]
