The Diosahood is a sisterhood for diverse women to heal, to rise and to lead. This global community, founded by my friend and client for 6 years now @cosmicchristine, is a sacred space for all women to come together and fuel up on Diosa vibes.

This is a little marketing piece I created for the membership. Designed with Christine’s branding in mind and includes all info on the platform. I just love how it came out. You can learn more and sign up at thediosahood.com.

Another recent website I created that just launched, The Passport to the World Club. I was happy to work with longtime client @pattigreenhealthyliving on this project to help her build this educational biz and spread the word on wellness for kids.

The Passport to the World Club is an exciting and fun global cooking experience for children. Each month a new country is highlighted and throughout the month children will learn about the various regions of the country, the foods, geography, culture, holidays and more!

This is the soft launch until December when they will offer the memberships and cooking classes. Such an exciting venture and I wish Patti all the best with this project.

I just wrapped up a fun project for @thewhimsydays founder Piyali and I am so happy with how it all came out. I have shared the mood board and logo in previous posts and now the website. This is the home for the Morning Basket, a curated, seasonal morning time guide for the early childhood years. The design is pretty streamlined and I made sure the shopping experience was easy, since there will be 2 versions of the guide for each month. It’s welcoming and calm and that is how I view Piyali herself so it’s perfect. Feel free to visit the site and take a look around.

Even if you aren’t choosing to homeschool this is a really nice guide to use in the morning (or any other time that works for you) as an additional source of education and is definitely time well spent with your children. You can learn more at thewhimsydays.com.

Draw a Line

Being self employed for over a decade has been awesome. It’s hard work but it does get easier. After all these years I feel the toughest challenge I always deal with is drawing a line between work and home/personal life. Always. And even though I feel like I have somewhat of a hold on it, I’m being challenged yet again.

The line is important. It plays a big role in my life and can literally ruin my day if I cross it. Now, I do set hours for myself to work but they get a little blurry sometimes. I try to keep this from happening but I understand it will. I just can’t cross that line.

In order for me to be in the moment and sustain my sanity, I have to be tough and listen to my own rules. Because even though I have the freedom to do what I want with my business, creating a realistic routine and setting boundaries is key.

This means shutting down. There have to be times when I’m not available. No one is always available. And they shouldn’t be. Especially for work. We all deserve lives and should be able to enjoy them. It’s pretty simple. So shutting the work world down is the only way to achieve that. There has to be a time when you step away from the computer, stop answering emails and maybe even switch your phone to ‘do not disturb’ if you have to. And stick with it.

And those boundaries I mentioned are essential to NOT crossing that line. Set them and live by them. Like I said, this is my biggest challenge but I’m working at it everyday. Separation is my solution. And that line reminds me to stay one on side until it’s time to cross over.

What are your boundaries?Does the line challenge you often?
