Thinking of You

Thinking of you hand lettered folded greeting card by Ivy + Linen Design Co.

Now that December is upon us the holidays are no doubt in full swing! The holidays are one of my most favorite times of the year because of all of the time with friends and family - the parties, the dinners, the afternoons where you just sit around and relax together. But, unfortunately, even though this is a fun time of year, for a lot of people the holidays bring pain, sad memories, and thoughts of those no longer on this earth to enjoy time together. 

You may be one of those people who has experienced those emotions in the past, or may be experiencing them for the first time this year because 2018 brought heartache you weren't expecting (hand raised, right here). I want you to know that people truly do care and you are not alone in your thoughts and emotions. If looking at social media becomes too much because it makes you think you are the only one struggling with tough thoughts and memories, turn it off. Call a friend or another family member to talk. Be honest with those around you. Also try to remember that holidays are a reminder of the good in our lives and the hope we have in Jesus.

For those of you that have not yet experienced these emotions, I encourage you to reach out to your friends and family that you know may be struggling. Give them a call, send a text, take them a treat, or my favorite, of course, write a hand written note. I created the "Thinking of You" card for all those times that you don't necessarily know what to say, but just want someone to know you care about him or her.

After my brother-in-law, Jason, passed this May, Nick and I realized just how much it means when someone reaches out - whether you talked to them yesterday or 10 years ago. We decided then that we were not going to be passive in reaching out to others and caring for them as they experience hard things.

So, take care of those around you and let them know you are thinking about them, especially this holiday season. To help you out with that task, now through the end of 2018 the "Thinking of You" greeting card is 25% off with code SENDLOVE.

Go out and send some love, friends!

Citrus-Inspired Styled Shoot

Chelsea Allegra Photography has done it again! She worked with some amazing vendors to put together a gorgeous citrus-inspired styled shoot for her photography workshop, The Prosper Workshop. Not only is Chelsea an incredible wedding and branding photographer herself, she is now teaching other young photographers everything she has learned so they can grow and flourish in their own photography businesses, which I think is pretty cool. I had the honor of being one of the vendors for the styled shoot and I am in love with how the invitation suite came together. As soon as Chelsea sent me the inspiration I knew that this was going to be a fun one!

Creative@Heart Round 9

Last week I had the opportunity to be a part of something that is truly hard to describe, but it was the most amazing experience: I attended Creative@Heart Round 9 in Bermuda Run, NC with so many talented creatives. I had heard amazing things about this conference, and after following all of the Round 8 adventures last year I knew this was something I definitely needed to attend and thankfully had the opportunity to do so for Round 9.

The Role of Dubsado in My Business

When first starting out, I knew I wanted to craft an experience that would be simple and efficient for my clients - nothing about the process should be a burden to them and it should be fun! Because of that I knew I would need some sort of system that helped me make this happen and thankfully was told about Dubsado!
