Are you reading along?! 🤓🙋🏻📚 I shared my reading list for 2018 over on the Haus of Layne blog at the beginning of the month and I would love to hear how you are liking January’s book! Leave a comment below and help me decide if us bookworms need our own spot to chit chat about Big Magic by @elizabeth_gilbert_writer. Our own KLCO virtual book club sounds kind of nice, right?

Developing a brand's aesthetic involves gathering visuals and inspirations in the beginning stage. This part of the process seems to soothe my creative soul every. single. time.
I have a habit of creating things that I can't find already available. And organization and creating systems is kind of one of my love languages when it comes to business. All of this pushed me to create The Blog Planner - one of the most highly sold products in the Kara Layne & Co. Shop and a tool that I use daily in my business. Find out more and get an up close look at it over in the shop!
Happy Monday friends! I wanted to make sure and introduce myself for those that are new around here. I'm Kara - wife to a fellow entrepreneur and that bearded guy, mother to five cubs and your typical jane-of-all-trades. My favorite trades? Building brands through beautiful design as well as blogging. Life currently is everything I never knew I always wanted. I'm also your typical child of the 80's (I miss DooDads, life without cell phones, roller skates and vintage Michael Jackson), my husband and I were engaged after two weeks of knowing each other and will be celebrating 14 years this summer. He's the one smiling and saying, Yes Dear when I fire off another zany idea or big dream. I'm a second generation native to the Arizona desert. And actually, within the same 30 mile radius. I can imagine myself living so many other places, but the desert will always be home. Thank you so much for being here and I can't wait to get to know YOU more. Leave a comment below with where you are from, what you do and one thing you miss from childhood. Happy Monday, friends! Here's to having a killer week! (To follow more of my family and home life, feel free to jump over to @thekaralayne 😘)
