Client Design: The Creative Goddess

Blog Design: The Creative Goddess by XOSarah.com

Excited to share another recently launched project with you today. Vicki’s blog needed a blast of personality to match her fun and crafty style. She had posted a pair of earrings on Pinterest, which I used as the inspiration behind this color scheme. Vicki’s also taking the Badass Babes E-Course right now, so her blog is getting a double makeover! Hop over and check it out – VickiOdell.com. She’s going through some bummer health stuff right now, so I’m sure she’d appreciate a little love :)

If you’re interested in having me work my magic on your site – you can find all the information and email me here >>> (now booking for Jan 2015!)

Are you spending too much time on the what-ifs?

Are you spending too much time on the what-ifs?

When I talk about leaving my 9 to 5 job, people always ask, "Weren't you afraid?" And I feel slightly bad, especially when it's someone who is currently in a state of panic over making the escape, saying, "Nope. Not once." As the bf and I talked about this very thing yesterday, I tried to dissect why I didn't feel fear among the excitement and READ MORE >>>
