Good morning you beautiful human you and happy Monday!! Im starting this week exactly where I wanna be 💛
You may have noticed I haven’t been posting to my blog as regularly recently. I’ve still been posting but I haven’t really said a proper Hi to my beautiful readers and It been a long while since I’ve given you guys an update on what’s been going on in my life, So I wanted to do a post naming all the exciting and non-exciting things that have been happening in the past few months!
We postponed our wedding again.
So, you may remember my post from last year, Why we are postponing our wedding due to COVID and Although the good old Borris road map should have meant we would be ok to get married this year, we have made the decision to do what’s best for us.
Although it would be great to continue with our plans for this year, being stuck in lockdown for the past year has really affected the plans we had made as well as well as the things we still needed to organize. Planning had become impossible!
Furbaby love in this household has grown!
We have new fur babies! We decided to home these beautiful little Guinea pigs. They are so cute and love being handled!
Were very lucky that these 2 have got on so well together. We originally got stitch with another little Guinea, who I had named Minnie. Unfortunately Minnie didn’t survive. Which was heartbreaking. We did get Lilo soon after as we didn’t want Stitch to be on his own!
I’ve been finding myself a bit…
Mainly when it comes to the blog and creating my small business.
I registered as self employed 2 years ago, and I started with an eBay business. When it came to actually running the eBay store, my health and motivation ran dry after a few months. I was basically doing something that I had no enthusiasm for just to earn pennies.
When we moved in to our new home, I stopped the eBay and was concentrating on earning through my blog, but if I am honest with you! my income is only just starting to improve from the blog, and I needed to come up with what I wanted to do alongside it. Hence I have been spending the last few months, organising myself, motivating myself and launching my business.
Branding has arrived on my things.
Branding is something I have been putting off for way too long! But I am finally getting on top of it! and making my websites and shop branded with my style!
I have never had a logo that I have been 100% happy with before. It feels only right that I have a rainbow in my logo! since I love rainbows, bright colors! and of course Rainbow pride. ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜. I’m finally getting the hang of branding.
I recently wrote a blog post on tips for updating your digital branding, so if your thinking of getting busy and creating your brand, check this out!
The blog has been having a bit of a make-over…
So with that being said about Branding it goes without saying I have been giving my website a bit of a make over, and concentrating on what it is I really wanna focus on. Which of course is mental health and being creative. No major change! Its just the creativity posts that you guys are going to see more of from now on! 💛
Like I’ve said, It’s taken me long enough now to find my feet with my small business. So now that I have my business plan in action I have been a busy crafter/creator creating lots of pretty things for you to buy and check out on my store.
Ive been creating lots of beautiful Resin products, Jewellery and Stickers. I would love your feedback on what I have been creating! make sure you have a look in the store to see everything!
Digital illustrations are available.
How many hobbies can one person have? Well Clearly not enough.
As well as getting crafty I am still constantly using procreate and drawing. My Instagram has become very populated with my creations recently. So I have decided to accept commissions, So if you would like an illustration done! I would love to help. Pop me an email to Alexa@alexajade.co.uk
And that’s that…
Thats pretty much everything that has been going on in my world at the moment! I would love to hear your guys thoughts and any advice on getting there with small businesses. 💛 But for now! have a beautiful week!
