#repost @whatdowetellthekids . I'm so honored that these incredible moms - coming from very different walks of life - were open to sharing their journeys for this project. And I'm really excited for you all to read about them in hopes of a more accepting, open-minded, love-filled next generation of kids. #WhatDoWeTellTheKids Design by @luminouslines
#repost @whatdowetellthekids . Have you ever thought about the stigmas attached to single moms, mixed race or same sex parents? And... have you ever imagined how they work through those stigmas with their own kids? We will, all this week... #WhatDoWeTellTheKids Design by @luminouslines
Friends! If you are a parent, have nieces or nephews, love kids, or was once was one (cough, meaning this applies to everyone), stop what you are doing and follow @whatdowetellthekids. If you think this doesn't apply to you, I would like to gently remind you that children are our fragile future. Educating, caring for and protecting them is EVERYONE's responsibility. #whatdowetellthekids is an amazing initiative to raise awareness about important topics like school shootings social issues, etc and how we talk to our kids about them. This week @whatdowetellthekids is highlighting the stories of six beautiful moms (inside and out). See more below and in the following two posts. Don't forget to go follow along to read more about these amazing women throughout the week! From @whatdowetellthekids : Every mom has a story... and each of them look and feel different. This week leading up to Mom's Day, we'll be featuring moms that may not fit the traditional mold, but are carving their own inspiring paths for themselves and their kids. #WhatDoWeTellTheKids.

Still trying to decide what to do for your mama for Mother's Day? Saturday May 12th, I will be participating in my first pop-up at the lovely boho chic shop @aroraboheme in LA. I will be there from 11am to 2pm to write custom notes in pointed pen calligraphy for your mom or motherly figure in your life! . . . . #luminouslines #brushlettering #calligraphy #ocworkshops #socality #risingtidesociety #freelancewisdom #makers #mycreativebiz #creativityfound #peoplescreative #theeverygirl #createcultivate #createdtocreate #communityovercompetition #liveauthentic #careercontessa #orangecounty #smallbusiness #bloomyellow #creativehappylife #branddesign #illustration #handlettering
It's Wednesday and I'm just over here trying to get my bearings and prep for a super busy month ahead. Ps - I'm currently booking brand + web design spots for June! And I bet you didn't know that I recently added a convenient link in my profile to quickly schedule a chat to discuss questions, ideas and/or collabs! 📷: @unsplash
Little unknown fact about me - shortly after I got married (and gained roughly 30 happy pounds from our never ending honeymoon stage), I decided to hire a personal trainer and train for a fitness competition. It was an amazing experience, I was able to get in the best shape of my life....the only downfall was the hefty price tag that went along with the custom meal plans and training sessions. So! When I saw the monthly customized Fit Guide that Gina of @fitnessista needed artwork for, I had to share this with you! There are so many great monthly subscriptions out there, but this is one of the first that i have seen that is customized off of your needs. I’ve seen each plan myself (duh 😜), and they are easy to follow and thorough - definitely worth checking out! Ps, Gina is generously offering a lower monthly rate for those who sign up before May 1st.
Happy Saturday bebes! Today is all about catching up on things around the house, a lil bit of work, and that self care that always gets neglected. Speaking of....Olivia has been requesting nail polish to paint her nails (not to the extent of mine in this photo of course), can any mamas suggest a non toxic kid friendly nail polish?
Loved the way this logo turned out for a rebrand from January. This family owned shop wanted a clean, classic and high end vibe for their shop and rental store. Make sure you go check them out and follow along with them at @the_party_shoppe!!
This #moodboardmonday feature is a little more minimal than usual but is helping me finally get into my spring groove.
The best gluten free donuts 🍩 I’ve ever tasted - even my donut snob of a husband approved. If you are ever in or around Temecula, I totally recommend stopping by @eatmarketplace in Old Town to grab a few (or every flavor left like we did 🙈🤷🏼♀️)
This week I feel like I have fallen into a bit of a creative rut. I've been better about cranking through tasks quickly, but if the creative juices aren't flowing as needed, my actual efficency is lacking. I think as creative freelancers, we can easily fall into the thought process of putting most urgent tasks first and putting the tasks we enjoy the most towards the end of our priority list - what is forgotten is the fact that what we enjoy tends to motivate and inspire us - It's like driving a long distance without ever stopping for gas because you are in fear of the time you have available. If you don't have enough fuel, you won't make it to your destination regardless.
It’s Fridayyyyy! It’s going to be a coconut milk ice cream, face mask and Red Box kind of night. Now accepting movie suggestions! Ps- we just saw Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri and it was one of the best films I’ve seen this last year. pps- is this the sign Ace of Base was signing about? 📷: Austin Cham via Unsplash
This outfit and overall mood of @sarahshermansamuel has convinced me to welcome spring with (semi) open arms. I think we can all agree, it's been a rough winter for us in California. It's time for milder weather and fresh beginnings. #rePLANOLY @brandypham @sarahshermansamuel wearing #BrandyPham Double Cylinder Bracelet 😍💘. #MadeinNY Sent via @planoly #planoly
I've been shamelessly plugging the Lady Luminous font in wherever I can. Website headers - why not?
