Evernotes Every Friday
1. The Progression of Storytelling
Really enjoyed this short video found on Brave the Woods! Joe Sabia has great storytelling skills—all using his iPad to supply the visuals. Just watching made me so excited to create and read and learn and share! Hope you enjoy it as much as I did or at least I hope it brings a smile to your face this Friday morning!
2. Once in A Lullaby
3. Emily Henderson
I’ve always been a fan of Emily Henderson after seeing her compete and win HGTV’s Design Star. I watched her show as often as I could but now—thanks to this Design*Sponge article—I have discovered her blog! My favorite quote in this write up was her response to “what’s the best business advice you’ve ever received:”
Sell a product/service you’d actually buy yourself. Seems like a no brainer, but there are so many times that I could have done something cheap and easy or just kinda generic, but I always ask myself ’Would I want to live in this room? Would I buy this pillow for this price? Would I read this blog?’ And if the answer isn’t a total ‘yes!’ then I change it. I consider myself my best customer because I know that so many people need the same things at the same price point as I do. I’m not sure if this makes it the most profitable that it can be, but I’m almost always really proud of what I’ve done.
4. Heidi Swapp
Working on my brides’ scrapbooks last year made me find within myself a love of scrapbooking! Obviously I love to create, but after years of seeing my mom scrapbook, I never had much interest in making them myself. But oh how I love it! It’s more freeing and forgiving than graphic design! All that to say, I have developed a strong relationship with Michael’s and am loving any and all of the products in Heidi Swapp’s line… I gasped when I saw this pin from her on handwriting! My two new loves combined in one: scrapbooking and handwritten goodness!
