This past weekend I started to feel the quiet intentions I had internally set for myself bubble up to the surface + want to be put down on paper. I waited for THEM to tell ME when it was time, and after several different drafts, their final destination landed them on the back ‘notes’ page of my BIG #HappyPlanner. . . My full, fleshed out list of #2018goals can be found on my blog this morning. (link in profile) // At the end, I also mention what didn't make the cut & it’s funny to realize what you let go of...
If there’s one question we crafty ass females often ask ourselves & are often in search of the answer to, it’s: WHAT’S MY THING? We hold – at a higher importance than most – this notion of doing in this world what we feel we were meant to do. ENTER: the latest #podcast episode. . . WHAT’S MY THING? is the question that basically rules my life. 🙃 // Now, a ‘thing’ can mean many things (haa haa! #allday) but when I refer to a ‘thing’ – I mean it as the main thing you bring to the table, something special + unique about you that needs to be harnessed in order for it be valuable to others and fulfilling to yourself. Some people refer to it as your ‘secret sauce’. I think of it as this 〰️ #flowofenergy 〰️ calling to be directed into its #sweetspot (aka – the #manifestation of it in your life). Furthermore: my particular definition of a ‘thing’ GETS YOU PAID. (Dat’s right, honey!) The ‘sweet spot’ to me refers to when + how you can capitalize on it, and make a living. . . So I repeat: #WHATSmyTHING? 🧐🤔 ... . . Read all my thoughts (+ concerns) regarding this question in today's blog post, or listen to the latest #CraftyAssFemalepodcast episode to hear @rukristin + I explore this question in conversation. (links in my profile) . . This is my favorite episode we've recorded so far + I hope it's one of your faves too! It seems fitting that it went live today – one month since our little podcast launched. YAY! 🎉 // Thank you for your continued support + good vibes. ✊😘 Happy new week, lovies! // xoxo . . #craftyassfemale ✂️🍑💁🏻♀️

Since Monday’s post on my planner line-up for 2018, and talking w/ @rukristin for our podcast episode on planning + organization, I have had ONE THING on the brain: WALL CALENDARS. . . I didn’t realize how much I missed having a large, static, mounted, always visible, color-coded #monthataglance type of #editorialcalendar for my various creative projects. . . Since this realization, I’ve been on the hunt for a much ‘cuter’ #wallcalendar than the free plumbing supply promo- #calendar my dad gave me + today on my blog I'm sharing links to these five super fun findings. . . Any guesses as to which is my favorite? 🤫 . . P.S. - #ARZ_bulletinboard also pictured
I literally have not one single plan to take this thing down. In fact, ALL of #ARZchristmas is still exactly as it was a month ago. 🙃 . . “Soon” is what I keep telling myself. . .
