Things have been a little quiet on the blog lately, and now that I am wrapping up several big projects, I'm ready to get back to sharing in this space on a regular basis! Here are a few things that I'm loving lately, and maybe you will, too!
ONE | The last few weeks have been full of Holiday design submissions for Minted. This is my first time submitting to a holiday challenge, and the the total submission count ended around 4,000. FOUR THOUSAND. Can you believe that?! Here's one of my favorites (that I designed, of course). If you'd like to vote for my designs, click here.
TWO | A few weeks ago, I started feeling a little discouraged by a lot of what I was seeing happen in the creative community. Overnight, it felt like everyone had suddenly become an expert on teaching entrepreneurship, and it all become slightly overwhelming. As someone trying to grow their business, I felt so intimidated by the information coming my way, and guilty that I wasn't investing more in my education... and then, I came across this article, and instantly felt better. I vowed to follow Kari's advice and make sure I was actually implementing and doing all the things I had set out to do, before I started worrying about what was next.
THREE | Are you following Bella Carta on Pinterest? After a few weeks of work, all of our boards are updated, and we've added a few new features to help you plan your parties! Slowly but surely, each of our invitations will have a board with suggestions for coordinating decor, games, favors and inspiration! Go check out the party boards we've started creating, and let me know what you'd like to see next!
FOUR | We're gearing up for some time at the beach, and I've been on the hunt for a cute (and big) beach tote. I needed something with a waterproof base, big enough for everyone's sunscreen and sunglasses, snacks for the boys and a few for us, too... This one is on it's way to me, and I'm so excited to carry it while wrangling three wild boys!
