Slowing Down and Summer Vibes (free download)

headerHey babes! As some of you may know, I closed The Bannerie for the summer. I had been going back and forth on this for months: should I close it all down? Should I just sell a few banners? Should I just sell the flamingos and tattoos? When should I close?

Closing the Bannerie, even for a short while, terrifies me. There’s the fact that I’m not selling anything so, you know, money. But also, I’m not selling anything. So what purpose am I serving to my customers this summer?

In this moment, I’m struggling with how much to share because I love being an open book but I don’t want all my business all over the internet, I mean I do want my BUSINESS all over the internet…. you get what I’m saying, right? The crux of it is that we’re moving this summer and I have a unique opportunity to spend a lot of quality time with the kids for a few weeks before they go to camp and while we move, so I’m taking it.

When the kids go back to camp, I’ll open The Bannerie to orders for the flamingo candles and tattoos (because they’re both so perfect for summer and easier to ship out than banners), but until then I’m slowing down, spending time with my family, and working on behind the scenes stuff for the future.

In the meantime, I’ll be keeping up with the blog, taking lots of trips with the kids and tracking my steps with my Jawbone UP MOVE (reaching my daily goal happens soooo much sooner when I’m running around with the kids all day! I’m going to have to up it!)

Here’s a new desktop wallpaper by Kailah Ogawa to help get in the summer mood. Kailah made it in two colors because summer is no time to skimp on color! And it looks gorgeous in both colors. And I begged her last minute to add it in pink and she’s amazing (check out her insta):

Unicorn Typography Download with Sprout by HP

As a small business owner, I am constantly trying to streamline and make things more efficient. The most time consuming thing (other than actually putting banners together by hand) is taking all the photos and moving props around, trying to get the lighting right at the right time of day etc. It can be a nightmare if it’s a week of bad lighting.

Game changer? The HP Sprout. It’s insanely cool.

Sprout by HP- The Bannerie Workspace

I consider myself a really tactile person, but I’m on the computer a lot for the blog and business so the HP Sprout really lets you bring the technological and tactile world together in a way that’s conducive for creativity.

One of my favorite features is the Sprout Workspace. I cannot stop scanning things, seriously anytime something catches my eye I’m like “I must scan this now so I can play with it on the Sprout!” and fall over myself going back to the computer because I’m so excited. And it’s so hi-res which is of course, a MUST for bloggers and business owners.

It saves me a ridiculous amount of time because it automatically clips the image without a background and makes putting images together in different ways really easy (my four year old LOVES it and got the hang of it in under a minute: drag and drop)

I played around with some of my favorite confetti from The Confetti Bar (soon to be available at the Bannerie!), scanning it in, resizing and moving the letters around and made a free download for you.

Exercising your creativity is being a unicorn, so I thought it was the perfect download for the Sprout. For full size image click here

 

Enjoy!

Like a Boss (Free Wallpaper Download)

OMG it’s almost June! So much is happening in June and I’m trying really hard to be a civilized person and stay calm but AHHHHH!!!

I throw around terms like “boss” or “like a boss” but they really mean something to me. To me, it means owning what you are doing, putting on your adult pants and doing what needs to be done. I love what I do but it involves a lot of tedious work and things I don’t like to do . For example, I love designing the packaging and considering what it’s like to open and making it feel fun and like a gift, I feel like a sparkly elf. But I hate shipping. So tedious.

Doing it like a boss means I put on some music, turn on my printer and do it dancing to T-Swift. (Or anything from the Nineties).

Here’s a pretty reminder from Kailah Ogawa that whatever you do, remember to do it like a boss.
