The best advice from Abbey at @wayfarerdesignstudio ๐Ÿ™Œ โ โ € โ โ € What are your favorite ways to feed your creativity? A few of mine are:โ โ € - going for a walk or just going outside and sitting on my patio with Matt and/or the pupsโ โ € - listening to a podcast (favorites are @themoderncreativepodcast with @chasinglinen and @_joycechristine / The Productive Life Podcast by @megan_minns / @bizbashpodcast with @camimonet and @elisaannecalligraphy / and a couple new favorites - The Simple Business Show with @neshawooleryโ  and The 6-Figure Influencer with @allieireeves )โ โ € - drawing / painting / sketching on my iPadโ โ € - reading a book (currently reading The Nightingale and LOVING it!)โ โ € - journalingโ โ € - browsing my "pretty things / color inspiration" board on Pinterestโ โ € โ โ € Do you have anything that works well for your creativity? I'd love to continue adding to my list of options for when I'm feeling uninspired / burnt out!โ โ €
some fun watercolor artwork from this past weekend (may or may not be for something exciting in the works ๐Ÿ™Š)

had some fun making this cool bouquet in Illustrator yesterday ๐Ÿค—
Hey friends! Haven't shown my face in my feed for a while, and I've had some new followers around here, so thought it was a good time to do a #fridayintroductions post!โ  โ  โ  So here goes: hey ya'll! I'm Brittany, owner of Letter Lane Design Studio where I do lots of custom wedding stationery, calligraphy and watercolor art. โ  โ  How about some fun facts?โ ? 1. My husband Matt and I have four pets - a 2 3/4 year-old Australian Shepherd named River), a 7-month old German Shepherd named Finley, and two almost 5-year-old tuxedo kitties, Sebastian and Bella (they're brother and sister)โ . It’s a bit like a farm at our house! ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿถ๐Ÿถ๐Ÿ˜ธ๐Ÿ˜ธ โ  2. I've been doing the side hustle thing for about 4 years.โ  lots of late nights and long weekends of trying to get everything done outside of my day job. Definitely not easy, but totally worth it. ๐Ÿ’• โ  3. My two favorite hobbies are reading and watching movies (preferably thriller books and horror movies, but I'll dabble with a heavy drama or comedy once in a while ๐Ÿ™ƒ) โ  4. I used to hate working out, but now I LOVE it! (which is good, because I also looove to eat... I can put some serious pizza away if you put it in front of me! ๐Ÿ˜…) โ  5. A few of my favorite things: - pizza (see fact #4) - animals - curling my hair (when I actually have and take the time to do it) - learning (like...I miss college, and I take all the online courses I can handle) - the wonderful home and life I've made with my sweet hubby and our adorable collection of pets ๐Ÿฅฐ โ  โค๏ธ โ 
what did you serve for dinner at your wedding??โ  ๐Ÿ˜‹ โ โ € At Matt and I's wedding, we had prime rib, grilled salmon, roasted veggies, garlic mashed potatoes, salad, rolls with butter, and the most amazing almond wedding cake!โ โ € โ โ € Not only was it the best day ever, but the food was ๐Ÿ‘Œโœจ โ โ € Design: @letterlanedesignstudioโ €โ €โ โ € Wax Seals: @artisaire @waxsealsโ €โ €โ โ € Ribbon: @silkandwillow โ €โ €โ €โ  โ โ €
What do you want most right this very second? โ โœจ โ  What's stopping you from getting there?โ  โ  If you could turn off that fear for a second, that voice in the back of your mind telling you that you can't do it, that it's not profitable, not scalable, that people may not like it... how would you answer?โ  โ  I talked on stories about this a few weeks ago, but things are shifting a bit in my business. I'm so nervous but also SO excited. It's a pretty big shift, and it's going to take a combination of really small and really big steps to get there.โ  โ  We've heard it a lot lately, but mindset is truly everything. If you truly want to do something or create something, you just have get your mind ready and open to the possibility, and then create a plan to get yourself to that point of putting it out into the world. โ And it's okay to take small, imperfect steps to get there.โ  โ  You really just have to want it bad enough.โ  ๐Ÿ’• โ  So now that we have that out on the table... what are you going to do today to get you closer to your dream?โ  โœจ

However - I can't say enough good things about this book! It is seriously so so inspiring, and I love the way Jordan weaves all these amazing stories into her kick-in-the-pants motivation.

โ €โ € Happy Friday, friends!! ๐ŸŽ‰ had a video chat with my girl @sarahann_design last night and told her one of my future goals for a product - she totally validated the idea, and now I'm SUPER DUPER STOKED to bring it to life.  More on that (and other things in the works) soon ๐Ÿค—
โ €โ € FUN QUESTION TIME! โœจ๐Ÿ‘ฏ‍โ™€๏ธWhat could you talk about for 30 minutes with absolutely no preparation? โ €โ € โ €โ € For me, it would be movies and books! I could honestly talk forever about these two topics. My favorite movie is a tie between The Departed and The Dark Knight, and my favorite book... that's impossible to answer! I have too many favorites - but if I had to choose a couple, probably "Nineteen Minutes" by Jodi Piccoult or "Just Listen" by Sarah Dessen. What are your favorite movies and books?? I would seriously LOVE to know ๐Ÿค— โ €โ € โ €โ € Design: @letterlanedesignstudioโ €โ € Gold Foil Printing: @sparklepapersocietyโ €โ € Wax Seals: @waxseals @artisaireโ €โ € Envelopes: @cardsandpocketsโ €โ €
