But after talking to everyone I discovered that I was really right and this is the right way to go!

Hustle n Hearth Styled Shoot - My full review and experience

Hi there sweet friends! I have been BEYOND excited to share these pictures and my experience at a Hustle n Hearth styled shoot! So let’s start from the beginning. I was so lucky enough to be invited personally to this mini workshop and styled shoot that I couldn’t contain my excitement as I left early Saturday morning. It was cold but not too bad in comparison to what my hometown was facing at the moment.

How to get files ready for the printer

Hey there friends! Today over on my YouTube channel I am covering how to package your InDesign files and get them ready to send to the printer.

Learn something new with year with Audible

Hey there friends! I don’t know about you but in this new year I’m inspired to learn. If you don’t already know, last year I focused my year on a single word which was “LEARN”. (If you didn’t know that make sure you follow me on Instagram!) This year however, my word of the year is “GROW” which relates a lot to learn. You need to learn in order to grow and I’m taking everything I have learned last year and I am implementing it into my business this year. However, that doesn’t mean I stop learning! I have always believed in being a forever learner. I have mentioned before in previous posts how much I love podcasts, YouTube videos and reading lots and LOTS of books! There are so many resources out there for you to dive into and learn. The possibilities are endless! Unfortunately for most of us, we are so busy that we really don’t have time to sit and read a book or even watch a YouTube video in some cases. That is why I’m so happy to share Audible with you!
