Permission from a passport

read

For some odd reason, this week started out different than most for me. I felt ‘good’. As in, really good. It’s summer, stress is lower, my work is slower and I can hang out with my boy, so lots of pressure has been off. I felt so good in fact that I deemed Monday to […]

Blog to Biz – photography session for my church

read

So, remember when I talked about doing that ‘brave’ photoshoot for my church HERE?  It was a little (a lot) nerve wracking. I knew the shots I desired to capture, but would I be allowed to go up where I desired to take them? And would I have the nerve? And would they even turn […]

Blog to Biz ~ BIG changes (and crates) on the horizon

read

To date, I’ve avoided bringing BIG things home because I didn’t have the room for them. Also to date, I’ve avoided making big things for sale because I didn’t have anywhere to sell them. And then there’s the fact that I’ve wanted to teach but didn’t have the space to do it. All that’s about […]

 My dream sits in this beautiful bright sunshiny room. But first I must earn my way in there. Because first I need to fight my way through some baggage…. of both the physical and emotional kind. Tonight I’ve been busy letting go. I’ve had my sign and graphics career for 20 years now and a […]

All 31 Day posts to date are HERE. When I first took up the 31 Days Blog to Biz challenge, I admit I was nervous. I was wondering how on earth I could encourage you when it was really me that needed most of the work. I soon found blogging about how to do it emphasized […]

31 Days Blog to Biz / day 30 – Nester tells all

read

Once upon a time, one of the very first blogs I landed on was Nesting Place. And I remember my land very well. I was immediately drawn to Nester’s decorating. Clean lines, beautiful things, but above all, she showed the messy side of life and claimed it didn’t have to be perfect to be beautiful. […]

31 Days Blog to Biz / day 29 – how I design a blog

read

What a day I’ve had. Today was slated for my ‘career day’ in which I kick off the day job and work on something career oriented instead. And today I messed with website ideas. I was so ‘in the zone’ I still hadn’t had breakfast and was still in pj’s at 2pm! Gotta love those […]

31 Days Blog to Biz / day 27 – purchase your own domain. TODAY.

read

I love Blogger. It’s price efficient (free), easy to use, easy to mess with,  and it just feels like a comfy old pair of jeans. However, there’s only one problem with it.  You don’t own it. It could go away tomorrow. Then what? Are you backing up your blog regularly should this happen? How to […]
