It's already February! 2017 was a crazy whirlwind. I'm determined to slow down and be more present in 2018. That means taking time to enjoy tasks I neglect the moment projects and deadlines start piling up. Things like this blog, writing thank you notes, sketching daily, taking time to write in my gratitude journal, enjoying a relaxing bath, reading a book that isn't business related, cooking delicious food; you know all the doesn't feel necessary but truly is.
So. I'd like to kick off our 2018 blog posts with an introduction to some of a. favorite design's newest additions! I'm not talking cards here. Rather the amazing humans that help make the dream work. We have a small but very caring staff I adore. You should get to know them.
First up we have Darcie. She's been helping for several months now and I can honestly say she's my personal cheerleader. It's wonderful to be around someone who appreciates all my daydreams and encourages me to make them happen. If I had to choose one word to describe Darcie it would be Playful. She reminds me to embrace the moment and most importantly, have fun.
Meet Darcie, you're gonna adore her too...
