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!

Working from My Happy Place Like a Boss

I run The Bannerie, from top to bottom, all by myself. Since I use a lot of tools that would be a pain to carry around and rent is insane in NY, I work from home. As in, my office is literally in our bedroom. And because I am home for so many hours and don’t leave to work, I find it especially important to make it a happy place to work from.

Working From Your Happy Place

Working From Your Happy PlaceThat’s my main happy place, riiiight there: my shelves of supplies and photo props and what I mainly see all day long. My work is generally limited to this room, but I try not to be tied to a desk because then it definitely wouldn’t be my happy place. The point of being my own boss is so I don’t have to do that! The HP Stream tablet with Intel Inside® helps with that!

Working From Your Happy PlaceOne of my fave things about working from home, me and my bed are besties. And the HP tablet means I can work from bed comfortably.

It’s incredibly important that while I’m working (wherever that is) I’m always connected to the internet to respond to customers, upload new photos, and post to social media and that I have tons of cloud storage for all my photos and documents that I can access whenever I need to.

The HP Stream 8 has free 4G data right out of the box so WiFi is taken care of, 1TB of cloud storage free for a year (!) AND Office 365, also free for one year! The last thing I want to think about when I get something to help with accessibility and efficiency, is setting things up and the HP Stream 8 takes care of all of that for you.
