Business Card Upcycle

Business, Calligraphy, Uncategorized

Hello! I learned the biggest lesson as a business owner and that’s how much business cards to order! My first order ever I ordered way too many and now I have too many old business cards with old info that I just cant throw away. But in case you did the same mistake as me, I spent a lot of time thinking and searching Pinterest to come up with a way to recycle my old ones and this is by far the only way that worked for me!

I absolutely loved how they turned out and can now use them!

All you need is your old business cards and these ‘wrap around’ labels from Zazzle. I am not getting paid by Zazzle to promote these but this is what a found that worked for me. They have designs that you can use or create your own! I do encourage you wait until they have a sale so that you can order enough for all of your business cards at half the price!!

Celebrating 28 Years

Birthdays, Family, Uncategorized

 

There is nothing special or significant about turning 28 today except that I have so much to celebrate at this time in my life. I’m in a place now where I can just live because for once I don’t have a plan. Whatever happens now happens and its the best feeling in the world. So I am celebrating that! But also thinking back about everything that it took to get me to this point.

Here are 10 things I would tell my younger self …

final number 1 Sunscreen – Where it now and everyday even during rainy days. There’s no going back but if you knew this early on, there are so many scars we could have avoided!

final number 2Acne – you don’t have it bad right now and if you continue what your doing (birth control, food. i.e) you will make things worse!

final number 3Birth Control – Let’s really do some research and think this through before we commit to 5 years!

final number 4There is no rush in growing up – Enjoy right now!

final number 5Stress – Don’t stress over things you can’t control! You will save yourself from a lot of built up tension and the biggest of them all you can’t help what people think or say of you so no stress!

final number 6Friends wont stay forever – Majority of your friendships will end; good and bad. And its sad but they each did their part in your life. Some you may never get the chance for closure and there are some that you will resent but you were meant to meet each of them and the bad ones; they know what they did!

final number 7Quality over quantity – But you will have friends. A small group; actually 1 or 2 but you would never expect who and you will surprise yourself with the new friends you will make as you get older!

final number 8 standtallmiaLove – There was nothing wrong with you, he was meant to come later in your life. Your wait was worth it!

final number 9College – It’s ok to change your mind. Actually, you will change your mind again and be really proud of where you end up.  Dad will even be impressed and support your endeavors!

final number 10Self-love – That pink little animal becomes the basis of your life and you will find yourself relating more to the animal as you grow up. Your awkwardness, humor and creativity will be your defining qualities, even if know one knows you for it. You even build your business around it!

 

stand tall,
