Ik kan dus echt gelukkig worden van mijn mini winkeltje 😆 eerlijk gezegd zou ik het liefst alles zelf willen houden.. maar vooruit, ik gun het jullie ook 😉 vanaf 29 augustus iedere woensdag en vrijdag van 10:00-16:00 geopend!
This time last year I was running myself ragged trying to fit it all into my schedule, be everything I wanted to be, and achieve everything I thought I should.
You can probably guess the outcome. Full out burnout.
With a lot of soul searching and a very scary but necessary life change, I can 100% say that I'm a better person now that I'm not so busy. Proof that busy doesn't make you better.
Busy isn't all that it's cracked out to be folks. It's a complete and utter LIE.
You can read more of my story + uncover 5 ways to tell if you're too busy on today's blog.
Know a busy Momma? Tag her below - this is something everyone needs to hear ❤️
Framed and ready to be posted ! I hope they like it :)
When you wish God offered free, 2-day shipping with your subscription to Christianity. When you’re done waiting. When your plans seem frustrated. Hold fast to your promise and surrender your timeline to God. His ways are higher. His plans for you are perfect. His timing is right. And He has your best interest at heart. Trust him today.
For those who DESPISE Monday's and want to reflect on yesterday:
Did you spend your Sunday relaxing or working?
I personally have always liked to do a little of both.
In the a.m. you'll see me enjoying my coffee, cleaning up around the house, and taking the time to do something with my family. When Sunday night comes, I'm prepping for the work week and feeling inspired and it allows me time to do things internally that I don't normally have time for Monday through Friday.
I've created that schedule because so much of my work is automated. Emails, leads, forms, to-dos; leaving me time for what I actually love: my family and my design work.
Not to mention after a brief hiatus, we've commenced on our home renovation project, which means many Sundays will be spent working from the dining room table and taking little breaks to help my husband. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
How did you spend your Sunday?
• 🧘🏻♀️ 🏊🏼♀️ ⛰ •
Adventures! My residency was super helpful in pursuing my fitness, to the point where a fellow resident described me as “active” (lol)! 1 & 2: Did yoga on the playa, near our cabins, after hiking surrounding hills
3: explored Hart Mountain (saw antelope, found hot springs, went on the shortest hike ever due to heat and shortage of water)
4: swam laps in the Ana Reservoir (coldest water)
5: found a hawk or eagle’s nest during a hike!
6: as I was evacuating, stopped to explore this old church or farm house. Turned around when the smoke made me dizzy again (and also when I passed a sign that read “warning, venomous snakes”)
Your life will only be as good as the feelings you experience on the daily! You gotta make it a habit to bring joy in your everyday routine. Make it a point to look forward to parts of the day! If you didn’t do it when you woke up, take a minute now and tap into that joy! Or what can you look forward to when you get home!
And if you feel like you can’t .. take a deep breath.
Sometimes shit happens, learn to laugh about it. Situations can get stressful, learn to take a breath and see the bigger picture. People will try to put their negative mood on to you, learn to be the boss of your own mood!
taking a vacation day from my vacation- if that makes sense. it’s our last day of vacation (not including the 8-hour driving day tomorrow 😏). instead of exploring outdoors, I am settled in at the cutest little coffee shop in Jackson, WY, journaling + commemorating this season before beginning the next. my counseling practicum comes to a close this week and then begins my fall semester of classes next Monday.
wherever you find yourself today, I hope you are able to take a few minutes to demarcate + celebrate your season!
Some sneaky stills from Action & Consequence episode one: Pot Ain't Hot! .
After a couple of delays, filming has wrapped and we're right in to the editing of our comedy PSA series set in '92. I'm going for a late 80s VHS look which Martin is doing an amazing job on creating. .
This has been so much fun to write and direct. We can't wait to release it this November 🍁
And, for the hawk-eyed among you, yes, that really is what I've called the project so far! .

Happy Monday! I hope your week is already off to a great start! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Let’s talk about creative process 👩🏼💻✨⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Here at Building 07, working with me generally goes a little like this:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1| COMMUNICATE: Like any good relationship, first, we get to know each other! Typically, I’ll schedule a call to chat about you, your business + the project you have in mind.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
2| CREATE: As a designer at heart, this is my sweet spot. After we have established a clear vision for your project, I will get to work + start creating strategic design solutions for your specific needs.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
3| COMPLETE: The finished product. Finally, I will send you everything you need to release your amazing new project into the world!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Check out my stories today for an inside peek into my creative process! ✨
When he be ghosting you and it’s not even Halloween yet 🤪
Where you start isn’t always where you finish. That’s the true magic of following your dreams. You get moved in directions and through doors you didn’t even know existed.
Did you know that I started my writing career as a wedding speech writer? Over the last six years, I have moved in so many different directions with my career. It’s been an incredible journey, and I can’t wait to look back six years from now and see the changes.
💞 Life is like a river. The goal is to find our own unique flow 🌟
Hi there fellow female creative. I'm @kirbanu
an Australian musician, yogi and the founder of One Woman Tribe. I created this community as a space for like minded women to connect, motivate, learn from and inspire one another.
I'm super excited to be launching our official One Woman Tribe podcast next month, in September! The goal of the podcast is to share the stories, tips and guidance of women successfully living from their creative work with you.
Interviewing each of the women has been soooo inspiring for me. I can't wait to share them with you!
To tune into each episode and for exclusive info only from our interviewees, click on the link in our bio @onewomantribe.co

✧ If you'd like to be featured here use the tag #onewomantribeco
so we can see what you do and share it too ❤️

And then - Go for it.
Do not wait. There will never be the perfect time.
It is not easy - I know. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But courage and drive are so important.
Successful women had and have the courage to do their own thing.
Courage to build their own standing in foreign industries, courage to follow their ideas and visions, even if others labeled them as crazy.
Today I've been editing table cells in inDesign so they're the same size to the ten thousandth of an inch and BOY OH BOY is that as much fun as it sounds... But when you have friends in PR you also get to give interviews on being a designer. So if you want to step inside the hamster ball that is my mind head over to Speakerbox PR for "Everything you wanted to know about graphic design but were too afraid to ask" https://www.speakerboxpr.com/everything-wanted-know-graphic-design-afraid-ask/

Can't believe summer is nearly over, but I'm ready to bring in the Fall season.
Not only for the weather, but for it's symbolism of new beginnings... which is why, I'm hoping to relaunch sometime this Fall. 🤞🏾
If you're also looking to take advantage of Fall's new beginnings + would like to launch (or relaunch) your brand this Fall, get in touch via the link in my bio or tap the email button in my profile. ♡ / #TKFV
Something new in progress. Imaginary Forest, oil on panel, 24x24. For me, the forest is a place of solitude, quiet, contemplation, and imagination.
The bears in my backyard. 🐻🐻🐻 We've had a momma and cubs in the neighborhood. They are much cuter when kept at a distance. 😊 I used the Bardot authentic marker brush set for this.
I finally have the first chapter of Bland listed in my Etsy shop! This has been a passion project that @shutupkrissy
and I have been working on since 2015. We’re almost done working on chapter 2 now, so grab yourself one of these and get caught up!

Oh hey, Monday! I’m ready to take on this to-do list....but first, coffee ☕️ #makewavesmonday #mondaymotivation
My mornings always start with a cup of coffee + snuggling up on the couch with a cozy blanket + my bible. I love this quiet time with just me + God. It fuels me up + I feel ready for the day ✨
What does your morning routine look like? ⛅️
Happy Monday! I’m taking Seth Godin’s advice today, and instead of getting excited and biting off more than I can chew, I’m choosing steady progress on several projects that I’m working on behind the scenes! ⠀
I started reading The Dip this weekend, and would recommend it to anyone who has hit opposition or obstacles when working through something, and has had to decide whether to press on or quit. ⠀
It’s a tiny book, full of wisdom for how to deal with the dips we face in life and business! For most, you’ll be able to finish it in a matter of days!
The state of the studio walls at the moment...tidying up before I start on a new collection🌹🥀
