Sneak Peak: New Website Plans & Social Suzi Giveaway!

Ooooh, la la!! I'm So excited to share this mood board from my web designer, Social Suzi. I can't wait to launch my new website, inspired by some of my fav online businesses, fashion, food, and COLOR. Here's a sneak peek of what you'll be seeing from my new site in the months to come...

I've really enjoyed working with my "web gal" as I call her. Susie has not only suggested an amazing design for my site, she also helped me think more broadly about my overall brand. She calls these sessions The Brand-Igniting Sessions. She asks the right questions to get you to think about your products, your audience, and overall biz goals so you can get out of brain fog and get to work. And now you can work with her to just that over at Social Suzi.

Sweet Spot Article in Amulet Magazine!! Win Your Free Copy!!

Have you read Amulet Magazine? It is rapidly becoming my favorite online mag... the combo of stunning photography, great design and sensual/powerful female energy is too hard to resist. When I read the first issue, I poured over the bios of each contributor. You know you want something when you feel a tinge of jealousy, right?  So, it's extra yummy to see my name and bio listed as a contributor this month. Yes!!

This article is extra special to me b/c it was inspired by a poem read by writing shaman and friend, Suzanne Kingsbury during her Tuesday night Salon at the dollhouse.  And not only that, but the piece is accompanied by photos from gal pal and creative cohort extraordinaire, Elle James.  Doubly sweet!! 

You can read the article in two ways.

I'm finishing up my first draft of Sweet Spot Style (the book) and I needed a little quiet space to collect my thoughts, so last weekend I had the pure luxury of staying at The Sanctuary in Westminster West, Vermont. Homeowners Caitlin and Peter where out of town and I was in charge of making sure Sasha and Maya (the kitties) didn't get eaten by wild coyotes after sunset. I am good at that kind of job :)

It's funny, I was dreaming of being all alone, getting uninhibited free time to write and focus, but oddly enough I found myself creating my own distractions. Maybe it is b/c I'm so used to being interrupted, with 50 things to do at all times, the phone ringing, dinner to make, or my child who wants to play Barbies.... and all of these things were gone. Yet, what did I do, but pick up the phone and ask my family if they would like to join me? How crazy is that??? I told hubby, "I think I kinda I miss you..." but actually I think it was that I'm not used to spending much time alone.  Luckily, hubby reminded me of my mission and told me to get back to work :)

And I'm proud to say I did. The writing itself, dare I say, is done with over 43K words and 125 pages, time for editing and picture placement. To celebrate, hubby and daughter joined me for lunch in the garden and a gorgeous hike on Sunday. What I learned this weekend is that I really do need to be careful about not creating distractions that pull me from my mission and that sharing the beauty of a magical place does give me joy, but there is something to be said for keeping a little of that magic all to myself.
