"In a Nutshell" is an ongoing series, reminding myself that's it okay to look back on mini-accomplishments before focusing on the now.
July was amazing! You know why? I was actually able to relax! My full-time job has been pretty busy so I made a geniune effort to focus on family time outside of the office. I tried to design for my biz only when the boys were in bed and the Etsy shop went on vacation mode for a week. It was GREAT and I highly recommend everyone to allow themselves to take a break.
July 2017 in a nutshell:
On the blog, we made another pinata (because it's been a while) and this picnic blanket.
I am officially on Patreon! If you are interested in becoming a patron of the arts, this site makes it super easy to do so. Plus, my patrons get some super-insider peeks and gifts! In all honesty, if you love Cozy Reverie, this is a fantastic way to help support my art and blog, and gets me one step closer to making this a full-time gig. Every $1 helps!
I have partnered with Mixbook for one colorfully festive card collection! I love it so much so if you use them for your next party, be sure to tag us so we can stop by to say hi. :
My husband and I finally had a trip to the Disney parks in Anaheim without the kiddos. It was a belated birthday trip for me since I got sick last month. These trips are rare and usually only once a year, so we always appreciate that our family are able to help with the little ones while we are off running amok with Goofy and Donald. Don't worry, we went with the boys again a week later. ;)
Speaking of Disney, I had THE best time working on projects for A Waltz Through Disney! It has been a while since I did a round up of Disney-inspired DIYs, so I might work on that this week.
Thank you so much to all who entered the HUGE ice cream month giveaway over at Brite & Bubbly! We were excited to be amongst such amazing vendors to create such a happy prize pack.
The Brodster knocked out two podcast episodes in one night: Spiderman Homecoming and War of the Planet of the Apes! Have you watched these films yet?
We are currently in back-to-school mode (already?!?), so you'll be seeing a few fun projects in the works. Not to mention, Halloween and Christmas prep has begun...ahh the small biz life! :) BRING IT ON, AUGUST!
I draw, make, and occasionally tell a story.
