Baby Scrapbook

Back in spring, I found out that my best friend of 21 years is pregnant. After the shock wore off, I realized I had to do something huge for her. Well… not huge; meaningful. I thought about making a baby blanket like I have for a lot of my friends’ kids. But knowing her family,Continue reading “Baby Scrapbook”

Monday Motivational Meeting

When I was in college, I was lucky to meet a lot of wonderful people. I didn’t meet anyone I truly connected with until the last couple of years when we were delving more into the details of engineering and spending a lot of time in the labs. As we realized our β€œfun” time wasContinue reading “Monday Motivational Meeting”

Birthday Celebrations!

When my boyfriend and I first started talking, he told me he has never had anyone make a big deal about his birthday. He is used to planning everything himself and hasn’t ever been pampered… so my goal this year is to change that. I picked 7 gifts that I knew he would like (5Continue reading “Birthday Celebrations!”

Non-billable Hours

I was thinking long and hard about what I would post this week. I knew it would be really full with clients. On a normal week, I try to see clients 3-4 days out of the week. It doesn’t seem like a lot, especially based off of a normal work day – but it is.Continue reading “Non-billable Hours”

Bad Day Remedies

Wednesday was a bad day. One of those days where I had to force myself to see the good things because there were so many little things going wrong. I could have easily dealt with one or two of these things happening, but it’s like I didn’t have time to recover. They weren’t even thatContinue reading “Bad Day Remedies”

Partner Patches

I’m SO excited for this week’s project. My friend Abbie helped me come up with the idea. We were out shopping at Lowes and saw a couple of guys wearing green cargo pants and polo shirts that had badges on them. I joked about the uniform being attractive and wanting to find a reason toContinue reading “Partner Patches”

HAPPY PRIDE!

HAPPY PRIDE MONTH, EVERYONE!!!! I had a whole post planned for today. We just finished with our first hoarder this week and I wanted to share before and after pictures with you. Just as I was sitting down to write up that post, Andi (our friend/shirt designer) messaged me with a finalized Pride shirt designContinue reading “HAPPY PRIDE!”

Finger Painting (For Adults)

You might have noticed that there has been some time between β€œreal” crafts. I got overwhelmed. When I let my craft space get messy, it blocks my creativity. The room I have all of my supplies in is small enough that a little mess can seem huge, especially when someone gives me boxes of suppliesContinue reading “Finger Painting (For Adults)”

Let’s Play in Some Dirt!

If you read my last blog post, you’ll know I’ve been a bit anxious lately. With how quickly my business has been growing, I keep forgetting to take time for myself. So yesterday, when I had a full day off, I decided not to worry about the company for a day. Not to do anyContinue reading “Let’s Play in Some Dirt!”
