Don’t mind me, I’m just going to keep this mug in our backyard to inspire the leaves to finally CHANGE COLORS 🍁 😂

But really, I can’t wait to see these in front of the massive yellow tree in our backyard! I have a batch coming out of the kiln today and I’m hoping (🤞🏻) that they have even more of a rainbow across the rim from the glitter interior flowing into the honey glaze 🤤

• be such a beautiful soul that people crave your vibes ✨✨✨✨✨
〰️
After a crazy week last week and deadlines across the weekend I’ve taken time for me, possibly the first proper time since starting @cawligraphy 🙌🏻 I feel calm + like I can hear myself thing - which is a rarity, let me tell you ♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️
〰️
I read a quote (surprise surprise ✨) about putting the best of us out there and not just what’s left of us. So often I put whatever is left of me out there and it’s certainly not the best of anything. Probably long expired or past the best before date, that’s for sure ✨
〰️
So I’m putting it out there, before I work myself to the bone 〰️ this self imposed beautiful soul is looking after herself and becoming the epitome of chilled more often. Do you crave those vibes? Yasss then let’s be friends ✨✨✨✨✨ goodness knows making friends is so hard at 28 ✌🏻
〰️
Happy Tuesday, my babes ♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️ #cawligraphy

Logo design for Ardour Home Maintenance. The brief: abstract shapes, easy to read, mostly typographic, and simple. We went with a calming sky blue to foster trust and stand out from a neon-infused industry.

Time for another coffee or tea break? Read this 2nd example of finding your why. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
⁠I work with various small business owners. Rarely do I work with someone that truly knows this answer. Or at least not anymore. I get a lot of very thought out, rational answers on the steps they took to offer this particular product or service...⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Yes, but WHY? ⁠🤔
⁠⠀
Here’s the story of @mylinencorner. Meher, a mom and business owner. She first started on ebay, successfully and then switched to a @shopify store. It’s not enough to start a store, build traffic and you’ll sell. You need to create deep customer relationships. And that starts by knowing your why, just as much as your customer’s. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
So what did she say; she wanted to do something of her own, whilst being home, raising her kids. Something that was easy to stock and send, something that is used a lot, etc. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Ok, so why not sell pens or notebooks? ⁠⠀
Why bedroom linen? ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
We got talking about how she chooses what to stock. That's when she mentioned, as a matter of fact, ⁠”I’m good at choosing the collection, because of my background in interior design.” ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Wait! What?! ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
We got talking. Turns out she’s passionate about how you can “just transform a space with light & colour. I’m really fascinated, when you are in a building and you can look through spaces. It feels surreal.” Just hearing her talk said it all. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
“When you are in a familiar space it’s just a room. When you look at it from a different perspective there is something more to it, it changes.” ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
That’s her why. Her love for spaces, together with being a mom, is what drove her to do what she’s doing. To help women to create that special, beautiful, space for themselves. Their sanctuary. And focusing even more on moms going forward. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
So what's yours? Tell me in the comments. 👇⁠⠀

✱ Boho bloom vibes, my kinda style. If I was a Pinterest quote this would be me ✌🏻✨ I don’t usually post much personal stuff on this account but as this is work related I thought I’d share this here, as I know a lot of other indie business owners follow me and might be feeling the same way today, so I hope that this makes you feel less alone.

I’ve loved the last two years growing my little business. Designing everyday, getting to meet and work with some super talented people, and to see projects develop and flourish has been amazing. But running a business is hard and lately I’ve been feeling it. I know people look at us small business owners and think it’s easy. We mostly just share the wins. It looks really cosy working from our home offices and going to coffee shops for meetings on a Wednesday afternoon. I often hear, ‘It’s not like a proper job is it.’ But that’s because we don’t share the long days not getting paid, the worry of financial uncertainty, the hundreds of unreplied emails sent, the constant back and forth between processes, experimenting with what’s working and what isn’t, the loneliness of not having proper work colleagues to solve problems with and then late invoice payments which leads to even more stress. 
I’m not here to complain as we all go through work struggles whether you’re 2 or 10 years into your career, but what I am here to do is to remind us all to support our small business owners. 
Share their posts, tell your friends about the amazing work that they do, don’t ask them to work for free. Small business owners are often following their hearts and dreams, so support their efforts in any way you can and help them to bloom 🌻✨ #hustleandheart #herestothecreatives

“The heart is like a flower. Unless it is open, it cannot release its fragrance into the world.” ~ Rajneesh

This is ‘Wisdom’, the third painting from my autumn collection. She feels light and open knowing that we all are one, there is nothing else to do but merge and be ☺️

You can find this original on my website, prints in my @Etsy shop... ohh happy days!

In order to achieve success in business you need to serve people. You need to help them get from A to B. (Even if you don't feel you've got from A - B yet! Your success comes in helping others do so)

And to help them get from A - B you need a set of skills, tools and a particular mindset.

It doesn't have to be complicated. 
Mine looks like this: 💥Mindset: WHO are you serving, WHAT problems you're solving 💥Toolset: email service provider, messenger bot, clickfunnels 💥Skillset: marketing/copywriting/funnelbuilding

Bearing in mind that skill sets can be outsourced.

A great way to serve people is in a community setting. Click on link in bio to find out how to organically grow your fb group to 6 figures.

~ Is this normal? I asked, waiting for a response ~
This is Emily. she's a build a bear teddy. She's the first teddy I made at build a bear. I made her in 2007, because she looked like mimzy, from the movie The last mimzy, which is my favorite movie. I've had her for 12 years now... and for the last month she has slept in my bed every night, because I have nightmares every night and they feel too realistic for me to bare alone, so I have Emily to comfort me in the middle of the night when I wake up from a realistic nightmare. she looks tiny, but really I'm just a giant. 🙈🙈

Hello! I’m back 🤩 I needed to take a little break from posting on social media to recharge my batteries and catch up on orders. Working full time and running this little business on the side has proved hard work! ⁣
⁣
Thank you to everyone for your support! I can’t believe that people like my work enough to actually buy it! 😊⁣
⁣
So anyway, here is a digital illustration I did a little while ago. It was a hen-do keepsake for a Disney obsessed bride 👸🏼⁣

How amazing is it to know you're someone's favourite, am I right? Life gets so busy, it's easy to forget to tell that special someone how much they mean. Don't wait for a reason, tell them on a grey and rainy Tuesday and make their week ❤️

Logo and business card designs for Ardour Home Maintenance. The brief: abstract shapes, easy to read, mostly typographic, and simple. We went with a calming sky blue to foster trust and stand out from a neon-infused industry.

286/365 Day 14 of Inktober is”owl” These cuties are the owl versions of the Madagascar penguins 😂 As soon as I questioned Dan on who they looked like, his first words were “Smile and wave boys.” He gets me... 😍 Also on other owl related things, there were multiple outside tonight and they were all having a conversation, you bet I chimed in and hooted a bit myself! Such a cool experience. .

~ you turn oranges to orange juice ~ 
I never heard a song by Melanie Martinez until October 10, 2019 at 1:31 am... I was getting bored of the songs I had on repeat and I desperately needed to hear a new song, sooooo I texted my friend and asked her what her favorite songs are from Melanie Martinez, and I listened to them. I have my favorites now 💙💙 and orange juice is definitely a favorite. 🙈🙈

Hi I am Fiona. I am a mum to Henry and Matilda and wife to Dave. ⠀
⠀
I am one of those mums that I think I could do anything if only I knew what that was. ⠀
⠀
Ever since I was little I have always had great dreams and then never really followed them, or I started to and then oh look at that sparkly shiny thing over there - what was I doing again???⠀
⠀
Yeah I get side tracked easily or things end up in the too hard basket, not because they are hard it is because I lost focus or interest and just never took them futher. I can see my husband nodding and saying "yep thats my wife" I cant even clean the house because I start in one room, pick something up and think oh that should be in the other room so off I go to the other room and oh look I need to do that and so about 5% of each room gets cleaned and oh look it is dinner time I better organise that. ⠀
⠀
I am fanbloodytastic at organising things. I organised our wedding, I organised a 6 week holiday down to every little detail, organising events with the school P&C and I am great at organising things for the family but please please please dont look in my office. I can do the organisation but someone will think that a bomb has gone off in there. But hey I know exactly where everything is and god help anyone that moves 1 pen or a piece of paper. ⠀
⠀
I love creating things also. I think there is a meme out there about Mess - what Mess, it is my creative freedom. ⠀
⠀
I'd love to say hi to you so please drop a hi and introduce yourself below.⠀

painted the wall in my high school art classroom. it was such a throwback to create in that room again. i learned so much in this classroom.

painted the wall in my high school art classroom. it was such a throwback to create in that room again. i learned so much in this classroom.

Vera prefers Jesse over me. A lot. Like, most of the time. Today, on the way to the park she kept telling me she wanted dada to go to the park with her and mama to be at work. There are days it doesn’t bug me. And there are days it brings me to tears. I can start to feel rejected or not good enough or a whole other slew of words that aren’t even close to true. 
I waited a long time to meet my baby and when I finally did (minus the first 24 hours), I had to fight my way into her heart. I wasn’t going to use the word “fight” but honestly, at first that’s how I was operating. Out of fear. Like I was going to lose something...the progress we’d been making. Validation. Worth. 
Slowly, as my anxiety lessened and our love grew naturally and intentionally (but not forcefully), I felt myself let go, little by little. I felt the Lord remind me, time and again, that she may not be choosing me for a lot of things but He has chosen me to be her mama. And even more important than that, He has chosen me to be His daughter.

Oh, mamas, this job is hard. And sometimes, when we’re feeling rejected or not good enough, it doesn’t feel very rewarding. But it is. Maybe just not from our kids, but from something bigger and better.

Tides have slowly been shifting the last few months. But really, I think it’s been longer than that. Love and action and snuggles and choosing her when she doesn’t choose me, the sweet goodness and beauty we get to witness and experience as mothers, compounded over time. She’s choosing me more and more these days. And it’s all just a bonus from here on out. Whether it’s brief. Whether it sticks. She loves me. Oh goodness, does she show it and mean it in so many little and big ways. And so does He. #weloveyouveramuch

A message for the energy types 🌹 🌹MANIFESTORS. 
Where are you still appeasing and pleasing those around you because your inherent ability to MOVE makes them uncomfortable?
Where are you holding back your bigness?
Inform the people around you when you're taking action, but only as a courtesy. Seeking validation and approval is not your M.O.
Simply inform and MOVE. 🌹MGs
Where are you giving up on yourself?
Where are you getting tired of the amount of change you're experiencing - on the inside OR on the outside?
Keep going. Don't be afraid to let go of what is no longer working. You're designed for change in all facets of life - both your internal or external world. 🌹GENERATORS
Where are you looking at the bottom line or visible success of your endeavours instead of the joy you experience from doing those things?
Where are you suppressing/ignoring your joy in favour of the tangible?

Your influence and legacy comes from you living in pure and utter joy. Don't give thought to your influence and how you can be of service - it'll happen as a byproduct of your joy. Follow it (over all else) at every opportunity. Your joy lights up all of the people around you, and helps them live their most inspired life. You really are THAT influential. 🌹PROJECTORS
Where are you waiting, without refining your skills and embodying readiness?
Where are you offering advice without being asked?
Where are you speaking up without waiting for receptivity in the other?
You see things differently to other people. It is your job to stay true to that, even in the face of confrontation. 
It is also your job to be receptive, ready and prepared for your invitations. Know that your receptivity lives in joy. 
Your invitations will come from 3 things: Recognition, Magnetism, Your Network. 🌹REFLECTORS
Where are you taking on the opinions, energies and thoughts of those around you?
Where are you not taking the time to develop your own personal thoughts and opinions in solitude?
Take time to sit with yourself today. Take time to attune to your truth without the influence of those around you. The world needs you in your wisdom - we need your unstoried self to show us the way.

You're designed for change in all facets of life - both your internal or external world. 🌹GENERATORS Where are you looking at the bottom line or visible success of your endeavours instead of the joy you experience from doing those things? Where are you suppressing/ignoring your joy in favour of the tangible? Your influence and legacy comes from you living in pure and utter joy. Don't give thought to your influence and how you can be of service - it'll happen as a byproduct of your joy. Follow it (over all else) at every opportunity. Your joy lights up all of the people around you, and helps them live their most inspired life. You really are THAT influential. 🌹PROJECTORS Where are you waiting, without refining your skills and embodying readiness? Where are you offering advice without being asked? Where are you speaking up without waiting for receptivity in the other? You see things differently to other people. It is your job to stay true to that, even in the face of confrontation. It is also your job to be receptive, ready and prepared for your invitations. Know that your receptivity lives in joy. Your invitations will come from 3 things: Recognition, Magnetism, Your Network. 🌹REFLECTORS Where are you taking on the opinions, energies and thoughts of those around you? Where are you not taking the time to develop your own personal thoughts and opinions in solitude? Take time to sit with yourself today. Take time to attune to your truth without the influence of those around you. The world needs you in your wisdom - we need your unstoried self to show us the way.

God is on the move, on the move, h a l l e l u j a h !

Focus on opening your heart to God and his perfect timing for us. He is always preparing us for what he has already prepared for our future. The point of our journey through this beautiful life is who we become along the way - strive to make it about the B I G picture!

You want time and freedom that a traditional job can’t give you.⁠
⁠
That’s why you started your business.⁠
⁠
Working for yourself you set the rules, you choose when to work, you choose who to work with.⁠
⁠
Or at least that was the idea...⁠
⁠
But it’s damn tiring making all of those decisions in our business, holding boundaries, prioritising work with the reality that some things won’t get done.⁠
⁠
We make decisions for everyone else all day long… what’s for dinner, when does the baby go down for his nap, how are we returning the library books…⁠
⁠
So when it comes to making decisions for ourselves we often don’t have any decision-making energy left.⁠
⁠
But when we don’t make those decisions for ourselves for long enough we end up with a business that is dictating our time... client work that’s overdue, emails piling up in our inboxes, and new enquiries that languish without follow up.⁠
⁠
THE BUSINESS WE STARTED TO GIVE US THE TIME AND FREEDOM WE DESIRE IS DOING ANYTHING BUT.⁠
⁠
We can shape our businesses into something that is creatively fulfilling for us, helps our clients and audience in the way closest to our hearts, funds our lifestyle full of adventures, and allows for the time and freedom to live it all.⁠
⁠
It’s my mission to help you create the business you dreamed of when you started. The business that would give you the time and freedom for your family, yourself, and all your passions. The business that would fund your wildest dreams and more.⁠
⁠
I want this entrepreneurial path of creating your own job, impact, change, and money in the world to be as natural, normal, and easy an option for my kids and your kids as the university degree, corporate path was to us.⁠
⁠
So tell me… what little thing did you wish you had time for when you started your business?⁠
⁠
P.S. If you know WHAT you need to do in your business to reach your goals but actually getting the work done is taking all of your time and more we need to talk! Book a free coffee chat with me to hang out, get to know each other, and uncover your next steps to more time.⁠
⁠
DM me for my calendar link.⁠

Anything worth doing is worth doing well. Not perfectly. Not flawlessly. Not unrealistically.

But always with your best effort 😘

It's OK to have goals that take months or years to reach. It's OK to give yourself grace and space to do your best work in the timeframe you NEED.

✨When life gives you Monday, dip it in glitter and sparkle all day✨

I actually love Monday. (Granted it is my day off), but it’s a new week, and I love any opportunity to embrace beginning and something new. I hope that instead of having a case of the Mondays, you had an incredible and productive day! 
Tuesday on the other hand ....🤔 http://liketk.it/2FQB9 #liketkit @liketoknow.it

Everyone meet, Eileen! This beauty is bringing a curated collection of seasonal bags to some very cool pop up shops in Fairfield, Connecticut. I had so much fun designing her new website with a killer logo by @coralpheasant! Go have a look, leave Eileen some love and be sure to see where she will be popping up next. 🙌thestyledbag.com⁠
⁠
Here are some super sweet words from Eileen. I love working with her and could not be more excited for what is to come for @thestyledbag!⁠
⁠
"First of all you made this a seamless process. Starting your own business can be scary, especially in this era of technology where  you need to combine the two. I have no past knowledge or experience in the website design and media world we now live in. I feel so fortunate to have found you and how you put my mind at ease from our very first conversation. After we spoke and gathered ideas you hit the ground running without missing a beat. I couldn't believe how fast you were able to pull everything together and get my website up and running. What I found amazing, was how you captured everything that I imagined in my head and dreamed of and made it a reality. I can't thank you enough. Thanks for having patience with a non techy gal like myself. "You're the best Jess" That should be hash tagged." - Eileen @thestyledbag⁠

When you're styling, whether it’s interiors, food, fashion, prop, product or merchandising, details are important to the shot. As a Stylist, bring some things that you feel can add to the shot (even if you are not asked by creative director or photographer) You foresight and attention to detail will be appreciated. (If Photographer/Client decides or feels that it does not work for that particular assignment or shot - don’t take it personal, don’t be discouraged and don’t “force it” or “sell” it.
.
Whether they use your suggestion or not - you will be thought of as a collaborative stylist. This is the sign of a talented, skilled, thoughtful, and prepared stylist. Be that stylist!

Love these ice cubes with edible flowers. These would make a beautiful addition to beverage styling. It’s in the details . . .

What do you have planned this week? Anything new that you haven’t done before?
.
I’m a little behind on my project list (by a lot) and I’m trying to not let it get to me. I know I need to wrap up this tuxedo robe (scarcity/fear got in the way) and then start designing my God daughter’s birthday dress. Gotta keep moving forward.

Don’t get me wrong, I love the creativity of clients and being able to bring their creative ideas into reality... but I also love when brides just let me run with it! These are high on the list of favorites from the summer because I was able to come up with the format and design myself. I just think they turned out so cute!

The Results are IN! 🎉⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You may or may not have noticed but I've been running an experiment the last 4 weeks with my IG. And the biggest takeaway from my experiment was this: if you're not seeing the results you're after, change things up! 💃🏼⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
For your habits, for your lifestyle, for your IG strategy - the same rule applies! 💁🏼‍♀️Sometimes if things are plateauing or are even going backwards, the answer could be to simply change your approach and try a new method! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Here are two easy examples you can apply to your Instagram now!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⭐️ Instead of spending 15mins a day going through your search feed and liking, commenting and watching stories - maybe try doing the same thing with the people you already follow or are already following you and build up your existing connections (trust me, the algorithm will still love you for it!)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⭐️ Instead of having 20 different mini-groups of hashtags you copy and paste depending on what the content is and then count a hundred times to make sure you've got 30 per post - create 3-4 mixed groups of 30 tags and use them cyclically. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Simple is best and significant change is a process, not an event! Small steps and changing things up will honestly be more effective than trying the same thing that's *not* working for you over and over again. 🙅🏼‍♀️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Still confused? Send me a DM and let's talk about what's not working for you at the moment and find you some ways to change it up! 💃🏼✨⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Small steps and changing things up will honestly be more effective than trying the same thing that's *not* working for you over and over again. 🙅🏼‍♀️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Still confused? Send me a DM and let's talk about what's not working for you at the moment and find you some ways to change it up! 💃🏼✨⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀  #clairemartincreative  #makeitblissful  #herestothecreatives  #collaborationovercompetition  #branddesign  #dowhatmatters  #femaleempowerment  #embracechange  #creativeentrepreneur  #socialmediaau  #creativeminds  #lovewhatyoudo  #bossbabe  #keepsocialmediasocial  #creativeprocess  #dreamersanddoers  #graphicdesigner  #savvybusinessowner  #goalgetters  #brandingexpert  #lovelysquares  #wearethecreativecommunity  #buildingmyempire  #liveyourpassion  #herbusiness  #instagramguru  #businessbydesign  #createcultivate  #creativewomen  #livecolorfully

👩‍👧🎬I got to bring my mom to work today and shoot a fun little project with her!

it's hard to explain all of what I do for work to her sometimes, because it's a weird industry that didn't really exist until a few years ago and that certainly did not exist during her time, but today she got to finally see a little peek into what I do. she was so surprised to see how much goes on behind the scenes of content creation-- what can appear to a viewer as a simple minute- long video, takes a small army of hard-working people and many hours to execute.

I also love whenever people get to see the special, smart, hilarious woman she is. I always think of my friends + people around me as lucky to have me in their life...because they get to know this cool person, my mom 🤣 she's a trooper, and I am so thankful + proud of her for doing something TOTALLY outside her comfort  zone and being on camera with me today. I'll remember this forever 🥰 thanks to @mindbodygreen for such a great day and having us!

It’s honestly hard for me to put into words what it feels like after a weekend like this one. ⁣
⁣
5 days in Tulsa, OK bettering myself as a:⁣
⁣
💙WOMEN⁣
💙LEADER⁣
💙FRIEND⁣
💙WIFE⁣
💙CEO⁣
⁣
I rubbed elbows with the best in the biz. I was hugged more times than I can count by our amazing founder and CEO - Joni Rogers Kante! I cried … a lot.💋 I laughed harder than I have in a while. I saw my name on the big screen recognizing me for my accomplishments. 😍⁣
⁣
I lost sleep … but I also lost fear, self doubt, and worry.👋👋 I gained some weight,🤣 but I also gained new friends, confidence, and belief in myself that I CAN DO HARD THINGS. 👊⁣
⁣
I’ve never been more sure of myself in any career I’ve ever had. This is home for me, and I am so excited to see what the next 90, 180, 365, 1000 days look like for me and my amazing tribe of women! 👯‍♀️👯‍♀️⁣

A massive thank you to everyone who purchased ornaments and garlands last night! 🤗🤗 I can not express how wonderful it is to see the ideas in my mind come to life and know that other people love them as much as I do.

For me, the true gift of being a maker is seeing the joy my customers get from my creations!

You know those things you’ve been praying for and all of a sudden they happen but at the craziest of times? Yep, that’s the boat we’re in right now!

Last week as I was driving to Austin I get a call from Alex. “So they offered me the job in New Braunfels and they need me to start on the 30th.” At this moment I went from super excited to super panicked in about two seconds.

Heres the play-by-play: -yay we’re finally moving to the place we’ve been praying to be in
-wait the 30th is 3 days after my first event
-we still have to sell our house *insert several breakdowns + lots of tears
-but I don’t want other people to live in our first home ever. They won’t love it like we do. They didn’t have to put it all back together after hurricane Harvey tried to tear it a part.
-where are we going to live
-these were supposed to be my last prep weeks for the conference
-I’ve never lived anywhere else
-I haven’t even focused on last minute sales for the conference because now I’m stressed about selling a house!

And while all of these emotions have had me spinning I still am trusting that there’s meaning to this.

I’m beyond excited for everything coming but honestly also terrified. This is stretching me in new ways that I didn’t ever think I was ready to take on but it’s here and I want to choose growth.

If you’re in the middle of a CRAZY season where life feels like it’s running so fast around you and you’re trying to figure the sense in it all, I’m with ya. While I’ve been in this season before in a completely different way the overwhelm is still there-but this time I KNOW I will come out better for it and you will too. Learning to lean on your community in the stressful seasons has been HUGE for me. I am so thankful for the people who have stepped up and showed up. I want to share that community with YOU!

Sis, if your overwhelm happens to be in your business then head to the link in my bio. We’ve got the tools and resources and experts and community to SERVE YOU! Don’t pass up on the opportunity to grow in this season with the tools that can show you the way through it. Tomorrow is the LAST day to get your ticket for The Confident Creative’s Workshop!

My true passion comes from working with boss babes who truly want to use their talent and strengths to start and scale small businesses. I want to help you bring out the best version of yourself. 
Sometimes in the corporate world you get caught up in the feeling of not being good enough. The more you do, the more they want and the more they expect. I want to feel good about myself all the time not just when they think I do a good job on something they need.
Listen, I understand it more than you know. Although I am very lucky to feel appreciated by my corporate team, I know there are people out there who don’t.  Building this business sets my soul on fire everyday. I am learning, growing and stretching myself to the next level daily. It make me so freaking happy and I want you to feel the same. Click that follow button and stay with me on this journey. xoxo, DJ

Being a business owner is no joke! I had definitely underestimated the amount of hard work and mental battles that came with it. 🤦🏻‍♀️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But at the end of the day, God is still good. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
He is so faithful and good to us. And I want you to be reminded of His Goodness today if you’re feeling discouraged, tired, or unnoticed. You’re so loved and He’s a good God! 💛⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

“I just felt like I could either be successful OR have a family and a life that was fulfilling and meaningful.... I didn’t know that having both was an option growing up.” ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
How many of you out there are the same?! ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
My eyes teared up when my girlfriend broke down and told me this because it hit so close to home. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
I was told the same thing. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
While I am still figuring out this “having it all” belief system and balancing act, I can’t wait for the next generation of women who won’t have this voice making decisions for them in the back of their head to flourish!⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Yes, girl, you can have it all! Sure, it takes work and you’ll make mistakes along the way but the most important thing is that IT IS POSSIBLE if you want it. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Let me know what your big goals are right now in the comments!⁠⠀

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I thought that once we were on the other side of Legendary Life Event I’d feel this enormous sense of relief, and in some ways I do.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But here’s what I feel way more deeply: Raw. Like taking an 18-hour nap. Like binge-watching Anne With An “E” and remembering simpler times.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Like hiding behind my shades for a little while. Good thing I've been on a family vacay in the Redwoods for the past few weeks. It's really allowed me to integrate all this incredible expansion.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As a group we shook some sh*t up.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It was a lot.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I can’t tell you how many people came up to me during Legendary and said some version of, “This weekend changed my life.”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As predicted there were breakdowns, and then there were breakthroughs.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We laughed together, burned our bullshit together and cried together, occasionally right from the stage.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I feel very strongly that, to put it in the most cliché words, there’s been a huge uplevel. I’m not sure what’s going to happen next, but I’m very interested to find out.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Legendary attendees, I'd love to hear from you! What's changed for you since attending the event?

Haven’t posted an intro in forever, so thought I’d say hi:)
↟
I’m Clare & I own Gin + Tarnish. My sister Julia (in the vintage flannel^) is my unofficial partner in crime — she’s a grad student studying forestry, so she’s always sourcing cool stumps + rocks + woodland finds as well as vintage + sustainable items.
↟
We’ve both traveled overseas a few times & gathered as much for the shop as we could afford/fit into our hiking backpacks (often finding ourselves in questionable situations because of it — breaking into our spooky schoolhouse inn in northern Iceland, a Spanish hostel overrun by cockroaches, being invited into cellars & marched out of courtyards & yanked into souks in Marrakech, near-crash landings on budget planes, freaking out security officials with our brass animal collection, etc.😅).
↟
Never thought I’d find myself in a small town (I’m more of a country or city girl) but when the building went on the market, I couldn’t resist the idea of living in a little brick apartment above a little old shop and digging through wonderful, weird old antiques for a living. Small-town life has really grown on me:)
↟
Tell me something about you! What’s your favorite antique/vintage find? Your coolest ancestor? Strange travel situation? Go-to lit book? I’m all about the details — they make life interesting:)

5 TIPS TO HELP YOU ORGANISE YOUR SOCIALS [Save this post]
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1️⃣ Create content pillars: Choose 3-4 main focus points that add value, write them down and think of 4-5 ideas for each pillar, use these ideas to create bomb ass captions!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
2️⃣ Batch your content: Spend a few hours every fortnight collecting content, scheduling imagery and creating captions using your content pillars, this will save you valuable time you could be using to engage!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
3️⃣ Use a scheduler that can AUTO POST: Provided you're okay with putting your hashtags in your caption both @planoly and @latermedia have the ability to auto post to FB and Instagram.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
4️⃣ Use the SAVE BUTTON: If your strategy includes reposting content (with attribution of course) an easy way to save posts you love is to click the save button and create collections, easy to use and you always have content available.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Day 8/21 - "Passing Time" 6x8 inches, acrylic on toned grey heavy weight paper, $45 (free shipping) Update: SOLD

Today is Thanksgiving (in Canada 🍁) and in the spirit of Thanksgiving I want to name a few things I am thankful for:

1. That Jesus Christ is working in me each year as I grow older and I can't wait to see how he will continue to do his good work.

2. For my beautiful and crazy boys (all three 😉) - I love my little family so much.

3. For my husband who continues to love me unconditionally even after 7 years of marriage - honey, you are the real rockstar.

4. For all of you following along my #21daysoflandscapes challenge. It so encourages my heart seeing you resonate with my paintings! Thank you.

This #21daysoflandscapes  painting was inspired by a photo @bluehouseblackhawk sent me! She is an amazing artist and you should definitely check out her work! I am so thankful for her friendship here on IG!

Litro as outta the BLUE as the launch of the novel Bolt From The Blue juice, but I was so psyched to be invited to explore the sounds, sights, smells & tastes of what creates the colour blue & to venture through the artistic multi sensory blue tinted world that is the Definitely Blue Cafe!!🎨 ⁣
⁣
& lemme tell you, this masterpiece not only infused my five senses & my sixth which had me going with my gut feelings (& a gut juiced with this lush apple, lime, guava, coconut water & spirulina innovation + my own stirred & inspired creative juices) to unearth more stories from the visionaries of @Bompasandparr who dreamed it all up... but it also BLUE my mind!!😝⁣
⁣
We stan living life in full flavour, amirite?! But aloha to taking the intention of making magic out of the mundane to a whole nutha level! This blue microcosm that’s shaped by a wall of bluriosity jam packed with squeezy blueberry smells, intriguing curios associated with blue, a bolt from the blue phone booth & so much more food for thought to explore your relationship with this hue, before you find yourself at the actual food counter ordering every blue food under the blue skies sun (I have blue cheese & blue tortillas sprinkled with blueberries here & they are bomb asf js 😋)....this was legit all imagined into the visually, sonically, gustatorily, aromatically & haptically vibed journey I & many others embarked on in here because of a TWITTER DEBATE🐦 ⁣
⁣
Yep. Das right. It BLUE me away too!!!. The launch of the Bolt From The Blue juice by @innocent also bolted from the blue a sparky Twitter confab over whether or not they’re showing their green ingrediented drinks true colours...& then @Bompasandparr dream team of creatives, designers, artists, cooks, specialised technicians, producers, film-makers, engineers, scientists, & psychs all put the EXTRA into EXTRAordinary & squeezed the creative juices outta this juicy food feud to manifest this chef-d'œuvre 💁🏼‍♀️ ⁣
⁣
Mad cray, huh? ⁣
⁣
The Definitely Blue cafe defo filled up my creative inspo cup whilst I emptied their Bolt From The Blue bottle🌌⁣
⁣
Now hola at me!! Is the drink #definitelyblue to you?! Or shall we settle on a rare form of blueen?!😆💚💙🎨
