I figured since we remain stuck inside, that I might as well start decking the halls. Fa-la-la’ing along, if you will.
(And since I always preach that candles are verboten - and don’t want to be caught in absolute hypocrisy- know that these are unscented, made of pure beeswax, and won’t be on longer than it takes to edit this photo.😬)
This is me. The real me... like five minutes ago.
Here’s three things you may not know about me:
1. I grew up in #noosa, Queensland. My hubby bribed me to move to his home town of #adelaide with a rose garden and a rabbit. I have the rose garden. I’m still working on the rabbit.
2. I have four beautiful daughters who keep me very busy! I have a six year old and three year old #triplets.
3. If I stop creating, I wilt. It took me a while to work that one out!
4. My business is Hopscotch Graphic Design where I create bespoke branding identities for biz-ladies with a mix of marketing insight, custom illustration, design, hand lettering and a good dose of intuition.
Now leave me a few fun facts in the comments below! Drop a link to your biz so I can check it out too! 😍
Had a buckle to use and ended up making a mini mini board haha. I was thinking of putting velcro back instead of chalk board back and switch out zipper for maybe lock and spinny wheel. What do you think? Leave it or change it? Also 5 more days till @themodernmomshow 💁🏻♀️ who am I going to see?!
Life is short, amazing, and nothing short of miraculous. ✨ We cannot afford to waste a portion of it fighting fear, but instead to accept that it is a friend looking out for us who only intends the best.
I haven't finished Elizabeth Gilbert's Big Magic yet but this chapter about how fear is conjoined with our creativity surely stood out. Whatever path you and I are leading right now, creativity is what brings our endeavors in life close to divine. It is how we do things in this lifetime with much fervor, and along with it comes fear marching.
...and it doesn't have to be pushed away but to be accepted throughout our journey with creativity. Whenever inspiration comes knocking our door to ask us to create something amazing, fear will always be there to chime in with its purest of intentions. We learn to allow fear to finish expressing its concerns, and still submit whatever the heck inspiration calls us to do.
Life hack: by accepting the presence of fear and just relax ourselves, fear seems to relax too. Life is too precious to allow fear to dictate our heart's desires. Don't allow it to hold us back from experiencing amazing things; things that are only found when we toughen up ourselves. This also gives us an opportunity to see what really matters and how far we are willing to go for it.
A major takeaway from last week's coaching call I had with @jennicacollado and in relation to this topic: when we allow fear to hold us back from creating something that could surely have benefited even one person, we are delaying their progress as much as we are delaying ours. Think about the impact of your creativity and fear in your business.
So, is fear still a foe or a newfound friend? 💛
When I was in my early 20s, many people would take my kindness for weakness. Now I'm in my late 20s, it's time to own my Harvest. It's time for you to own your harvest and plant your seeds so they can grow. 2019 is Business Only. The universe is in control. Let's all be great.

Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think that taking our entire family to Disney would have been possible, little did I know that God had other plans. With some hard work and a whole lot of prayer I earned a trip to Disney all expense paid for the fab five of us. Amazing how a $99 kit has changed our lives for the better. 💕💕
