Are you not feeling very productive this week? You’re not alone. This has been a roller coaster kinda week. With many emotions, feelings and wonders. We are all trying to figure out what’s to come. No one really knows for sure and all we have left to do is put one feet in front of the other and keep on moving forward. Politics aside, I have had other not so productive weeks too and they have nothing to do with a huge distraction like the one we are all experiencing right now.
Last week I spent a couple of days at a conference that impacted me tremendously. I was invited by a friend and speaker. We have been great fans and cheerleaders of each others work for a very long time now, but had never met in person. I know you have friendships like that too. (more…)
We are not meant to do it all alone. For months I have been saying those words to myself, yet I have been going the opposite way.
The reality is that my photography has evolved, but I have a long way to go. For starter I need to start using the DSLR my husband got for me about three holidays ago. Can you relate to that? As a self taught handbag designer and maker I have felt the struggle. The words, “The struggle is real”, are no joke. But, learning as I go is not always that bad. I get to try fabrics, patterns, and go back and tweak them as needed. I just love the entire process. (more…)
As a cancer survivor I can’t let a day go by without being thankful. Thankful for being here, raising my girls, loving my family, making handbags for you and growing in such a beautiful community of smart, creative, and powerful women. I have in my heart all the women that are fighting cancer at this moment, that have fought cancer at some point of their lives or that are care takers of a relative going through this tough battle. My prayers are will all of you.
We organize and reorganize our desk over and over again. I know I do! We decide what to keep and what to toss, because it wasn’t as useful as we thought it would be.
If you are like me, you can’t work effectively in a cluttered desk. Don’t you just feel like a brand new person when you’ve done an overdue cleaning and mindful organization? I do too, which is why I’m sharing how to keep your desk organized with 5 simple must have desktop tools.
Whether you’re working in a cubicle or spending your days in your home office, there are some supplies you should always keep at your desk to maximize organization. Here are my picks! (more…)
Back to school!
Can you believe is that time of the year, it’s way too fast. Is not even about the fact that summer is soon coming to an end and fall is sneaking right behind, it’s that vacations went by way too fast. We were still savoring the long summer days when without much notice we were buying school supplies. Can you relate? I have a feeling you can.
I have been aiming for good photography, great social media, flawless writing, designing and making accessories everyone will love, take care of my girls, keeping the house tidy, being warm and welcoming with others, and on top of all of that take some time for myself. Ufff… I am tired already. Can you see the pattern? I was trying to be and do perfectly every area of my life, and yet had no defined intention.
A copy of you is never really you. It’s just you imitating someone else. You are beautiful, unique and special; and that’s just why you are loved. Be authentic, be yourself and you’ll soon realize how amazing you are.
