This week I traveld with Zach to Wisconsin.  A cool part of his job is all the traveling he does, but it's also sad to have him not around for a few days.  It's great when I get to go with him & we haven't traveled together since before we moved.  So this week has been an extremely happy one.

Currently, I'm working from a huge king size bed & watching actual TV.  This TV includes a lot of Syfy channel, Food Network, & afternoon talk shows.  Wonderful guilty pleasures.
Currently, I'm working on a blog design upgrade.  A popular design option in the shop is the most affordable customized option: the Mix & Match Premade Upgrade.  This package is $80 & includes 3 upgrades to a premium template (any template over $45).  I worked with Amanda of Cool Living to upgrade the Hello Dotty design & am now working with Kat of Unbecoming.  I love this option because you can get a custom look.

Currently, I'm thinking about adding more blog designs to the shop.  I'm wondering why some are more successful than others & how I can replicate that success.  I'm wondering if I should add more color variations but I still think the color palette upgrade is the best solution to this.  Completely custom colors no one else will have is a great alternative!

Currently, I'm thinking about my business & the future.  I'm wondering if this is something I can continue long term or if this is just something I'm doing now.  I'm trying to make decisions that will affect the long term & trying to grow to ensure my creativity isn't lost just to my twenties.  
Currently, I'm downloading all my photos from my phone to my computer so I can update it.  I'm so lazy with that & never get rid any photos.  I haven't updated any apps on my phone in ages.  It's a wonder they even function.

Currently, I'm working on my 5 Happy Things.  Traveling with Zach wasn't on the list but it sure has made me happy this week!  I may walk down to the Wal-Greens & pick up some of those lipstick colors I mentioned.  With my recent love of wearing red lipstick I think I'm finally comfortable to step out of my comfort zone even more.  Plus wearing around just for the sake of wearing it around is pretty fun too.

  1. I love just hanging in hotels when I travel. I love traveling. I can't wait to go somewhere soon!


  2. I think your should keep up your blog and your business's as a long term thing. I'm 30 and one thing I learned is that I kept going back to my creative outlet, designing. You do have something going on here, and I think you should keep at it. :) What part of your business is more successful? Is it your vintage items, your graphic design, or your stationery? Whatever has been more of a success means you're really good at it and should grow it.
