UPDATE: We received two pairs of Hickies  a week ago…pink and black / gold.
I put them on my daughter’s gold hightop sneakers (kid size) and the pink ones on my shoes. Overall I like the concept. It states it’s one size but it was snug on my shoe (adult size) and on my daughter’s I had to snap the top two straps after she got the shoes on..so it wasn’t a true slip on. But I’m sure it would have worked fine on a regular sneaker. Of course we were rushing to get out the door that day and the gold shoes matched her outfit  #lol

{Unique} Holiday Cards

Can you believe it’s the holiday season already? Even though everything is digital I still love the feel of a nice printed card! I have a box full of cards from over the years and it’s so nice to sit down and go through them on the not so great days. The unique square sizes look great!

UPDATE:  I received my cards in the mail!!!  Instead of doing a holiday theme card I decided on THANK YOU cards for my clients. With so many communicating via the internet or texting I am still old-fashion and like sending out personalized cards to my clients.
As a graphic designer I look for the design to match the print…these cards came out great!!  Can’t wait to send them to my clients!

Mama and Me {photo book}

Once again…if you’re like me and have a little one you have probably taking a million pictures and they are still on your phone, right? They grow SO fast!!! I decided to create a mommy and me book, maybe I’ll let her have it when she graduates high school:)   AdoramaPix is having a promotion on their photo books {15% off}. Turn those cell phone photos into nice coffee table books or gifts for family and friends. It would even be a great idea for a mini photography or graphic design portfolio.

I received the new book “Mama & Me” 10×10 in the mail and it looks great! (Now my husband wants one that says “Daddy and Me” #lol)  I went with the same layout as the first book. I like a clean/modern look. This time I also received a keep sake box to put the book.

Mamas NIGHT OUT (recap)

In 2014 I launched Mentoring Mamas™, a peer to peer mentoring program for mompreneurs. My goal was to create a platform where women could come together while encouraging and empowering one another in their professional and personal lives. I also wanted a space that was kid-friendly for those who needed to bring their kids with them. This is huge because many times, especially as new moms, we don’t feel comfortable going certain places with the kids when others around us don’t have kids. And let’s face it, even if you are married or have help, the kids are still with YOU 90% of the time!

12615251_10207187811526536_4485205442240730311_o

Today Mentoring Mamas™ has a closed Facebook page of over 100 mompreneurs!  90% of our group is local to Jacksonville, FL and the other 10 % is located all over the world. We have monthly face-to-face meetings as well as virtual meetings. But I wanted to do something special for the mamas on the weekend and without the kids. The event was open to the public and we promoted it with Angela Spears on Jax Engage, on WGCL 1360 AM, a local radio station in Jacksonville.

So I planned a mamas NIGHT OUT!! I wanted to have an event that was motivational, inspirational  but also FUN. I invited J Diannne Tribble, a longtime friend  and colleague as our guest speaker. Instead of having her speak in a lecture style, I decided to do an interview style (like Oprah does with her guests..yes I  was Oprah for the night, lol). It allowed the attendees to hear both of our stories and how J Dianne reached the stage she is in now with  a thriving business, loving husband and 3 successful children. In addition to being a life coach she is also an author of 3 books. Click here to connect with J Dianne.

Fun Fact: The day we interviewed with Angela, our special guest J Dianne Tribble also interviewed with her right before us (not planned). Look how God worked things out perfectly!!

3 Key Takeaways:

  • Be intentional about creating authentic relationships
  • Be confident in yourself because you believe it, NOT what someone tells you
  • There is someone out there who needs your service or product

The food for the evening was sponsored by our friends at  Publix!! “Where shopping is a pleasure”

We also had 3 fabulous vendors who shared with the attendees their products and services:

If you are looking for a space to hold an intimate event please contact JaLynne at No Lye Style Beauty and Boutique and book your space TODAY!! In addition to the event space she sells natural hair care products, apparel and accessories. If you are a local vendor I would encourage you to reach out to her as well, she has opportunities for local vendors to sell their products in the boutique.

This was one of those few times where you have a vision and it ALL comes together like you imagined. We had an amazing time! Look for more events in 2016.
