Happy halloween!! what’s your favorite candy to snag from your kids’ stash? i love me some twix and reese’s pb cups. i can never buy chocolate candy to hand out or else i’ll eat it!! (unless it’s tootsie rolls, but those don’t really count in my book 😳). enjoy (hopefully) the last night of putting all those costumes on! remember when we were growing up and we wore our costumes once on halloween?! 😂🙌🏻
A line from one of my favorite christmas movies!! (do you know it?) what are some of your favorite christmas movies? tell me in the comments!!
. 🎄besides muppet christmas carol, we love home alone (1 &2), elf, white christmas, muppet family christmas, little women & recently my friend told me about arthur christmas and we’ve been loving it too (thanks @bostwickfam!).
hope you’re having a happy tuesday! xo ❤️-lisa
Did you see my time lapse of the making of this sign? swipe 👉🏻 to see! p.s. thursday mornings are for photo shoots with canvases. 😎
I’m working on a branding project for a new, local candle company. they specialize in hand poured, small batch bee wax candles. i just wrapped up their logo and alternative logos and i’m working on their collateral pieces. i’m absolutely loving how everything is turning out!
this is their mood board that inspired the logo design process. what words would you use to describe this?

After a sneaky little ski trip a couple of weeks ago with friends, we’re taking the kiddies off this week! can’t wait for the mountains and a vin chaud or three! are you escaping somewhere nice for half-term?
2 weeks ago
2 years ago i embarked on this crazy journey to create a small craft business. i was at a low point, working in schools and running myself into the ground and i knew something needed to change.
i can’t believe that 2 years on i have finished my first collection of work and that it will be for sale both online and in a shop!! i’ve enjoyed every step of my journey and i’m so excited for the next chapter.
if anyone out the is running at a low ebb and miserable with their life take a leap of faith and change your stars. my gramps would say ‘the only choices you’ll regret in life are the chances that you didn’t take’
have a great day everyone 😊
Messy bun, carry on 💋 ⠀
discovering who you are is tough... let me tell ya! digging deep into your soul, looking around if you even have one ☝🏻 ⠀
this all week (oh i know it’s only thursday but still) has been kicking my butt. 🍑 ⠀
i was trying to catch up on tasks i “didn’t particularly enjoy” 💩 and at the same time to get back into my flow. ⠀
well, hello that does not work! 🙄 ⠀
pushing through is just not my way of doing things and i don’t think it should be for anyone ⛔️ (because let’s face it, it just makes you feel miserable, behind, procrastinate, hate yourself and more “goodies”). ⠀
and when i compared my last week and this week -> i got it. ⠀
working with my girls in rock your biz has been so rewarding, so much fun and just pure joy! coaching female entrepreneurs on how to set up their online biz -> heaven on earth. ⠀
my full heart is on talking/helping others. and i know that requires making some shifts in my life sooner rather than later. ⠀
aaaaand my hair is on the bottom of my list (as for now). 💇🏻♀️ ⠀
yep, i don’t like washing my hair every day 🤷🏻♀️ ⠀
so if you are not feeling happy, joyful, fulfilled, purposeful.... look at what you do every single day maybe you find out something like i did.⠀

'of course i need only a few pictures but please take like a thousand'. who can relate? meanwhile, did you enjoy yesterday's post? do you have an idea who your target audience are? are they professionals? students? average class or upper class? youth or middle aged? what do they like? what are their current challenges? what are their values? what are their life goals?
with this information you can build your customer avatar. having a customer avatar goes a long way in helping you build a product that people will love. it will also guide you to create the best marketing strategies.
that said, let's move on to the second tip.
building a sustainable business means you need a good product. a product that actually solves a problem or a market need. create a product that people will love, something that provides value and helps them reach their goals.
so dear fashionpreneur, focus on consistently connecting to your potential clients, find out their problems and solve it anyway. you are on your way to building a sustainable business when the customer agrees your solution solves their problems.

watch out for my next post on the third tip.
Hey there, darlin’! i feel like we’ve gotta do some real talk about criticism.
now sometimes we get a healthy dose of constructive criticism (feedback that makes me better as a person and business owner? um, yes please!), and sometimes we get a heaping amount of just plain negative talk.
it can be hard to not let negative feedback add up, and even harder to not let it distract you from living out your dreams. but i’ll let you in on a little secret (that none of those nay-sayers want you to know)… when it comes to negative comments, letting go and hanging on take the same amount of energy. the only difference between the two is focus.
so. do you want to spend your energy on hanging on to the less-than-kind comments some person has made? or do you want to direct that energy to letting go of the negativity and being able to say, “it’s okay that you feel that way about what i’m doing, because what really matters is how *i* feel about it, and i feel great!” what will you direct your energy towards today?
p.s. seeking a community that is always positive and aces the idea of construct criticism? then come check out the clevernizers group on fb! join to be connected to a fun, positive group that’s a blast to share creative ideas with!
