Let me start off this post by explaining that I am a brand snob. Let me also explain to you all that I studied Intellectual Property Law because that is how much brands and trademarks have an effect on my life. I am quite particular, and if I like something from a particular brand, I will go back and try other products from that brand. That is how branding is SUPPOSED to work. The opposite is also true, if I DONT like something from a particular brand, chances are I will not buy that brand again. Read the rest of this entry
I used my Unicorn 🦄 Stickers for this spread. I’m so pleased with the way this entire project came out from start to end. I am not a graphic designer. I have an undergrad degree in business administration and I have a law degree. I love Intellectual Property Law. But I’ve always been a creative person and I am a life long learner. So when I saw people creating stickers, I knew it was something I had to learn how to do. And I did! And I think I did a pretty good job, all things considered. I have some things I want to tweak, but overall, I am very proud of myself. Read the rest of this entry

But let’s say you were browsing Pinterest and you came across a picture you really liked. So you save it. But what you really want to do is use the image as a sticker in your planner. How would you do that, and what would be the best way to do it? You have several options. You can either: Read the rest of this entry
I was so stressed out and I didn’t even realize I was stressed. It took me two trips to the hospital to realize something really needed to change. So I took a trip, I cut back on my drinking, got off *most* social media, and most of all, began to practice mindfulness. It hasn’t been easy, but it has been worth it. I see a significant change in myself in the short three weeks since I started my self care.
One way I currently practice mindfulness is through meditation, but also through making time for myself to create and design. Another way is through coloring in Adult Coloring books.
Take time to practice self care and self love today. You are wonderful!
