As a designer, I spend hours and hours behind the scenes figuring out all the details. I may only show my clients one design direction, but I work on a crazy amount of concepts. You should see some of my files with all the different logo ideas. This is one of those unused concepts. I even played around with making a pretty cool brand pattern out of it. #pacecreative#branding#branddesigner#branddesign#logodesign
@shyras_look ! Girl you told me We’ll see each other today and we have a lot to talk about! You said you missed my crazy ass! I had so much to tell you and thank you about! Why did you just leave?! My heart is literally crying right now. All I ever prayed for you is to find your success coz you were always there to uplift women! Happy birthday to you! I wish you could have waited a little bit. I know how you were feeling exactly and I wanted to be there for you today. But I know you know I love you and I admire you and I told you that. I hope A Shyra will grow in our hearts so we can continue to empower one another. We were all blessed to have you. I will miss you terribly and your memories will be kept forever. #localdesigner#phoenixfashion#phoenixdesigner#arizonadesigner#labelhorde#tempefashion
“Am I not talented enough? Not pretty enough? Not good enough?”
I used to tie my self worth on the number of followers I had and I’m not proud of it. I used to beat myself up and really make myself feel awful because I never even reached 10K (before my detox). It was awful.
Luckily I had some time away from the app to give myself some much needed perspective. After a lot of soul-searching I realized something...
Are we focusing on our happiness or on a number on an app?
Happiness is an inside job ma friend. So let’s stop focusing on a number and instead fill up our lives with SUBSTANCE.
So whether that be as small as lighting your favorite candle, listening to a empowering podcast or taking a trip to Disneyland... make sure you start fueling your soul with JOY.
What are some things that make you feel happy or empowered?
Sending thanks to this character! Repost from @hotsizzleman who loves #CamelbackMountain so much he has to bust out his #SuperCamelback tee even in #Hawaii 🌴 🌴 🌴 many thanks to you and your lady! ・・・

Raise your hand if Instagram gives you anxiety!
I used to have major anxiety attacks that left me feeling unworthy and untalented. The truth is that scrolling through the ‘gram has that effect on most of us because of what I like to call... The Comparison Monster!
Hey, we’re only human! Seeing someone’s perfect feed or creative work may trigger that monster in you, and that’s ok! The important thing is to rise above it and not let it control you.
It’s all about your mindset!
Knowing that you are not in competition with anyone but yourself and having unwavering belief that we live in an abundant Universe is what helped me get out of my vicious Insta-cycle.
It took me six months to get to a place where I can really say that I am using Instagram in a healthy way that works for my life. I promise that if you hone in on your intention and master your mindset, you can too!
Double-Tap if you’re ready to kick that comparison monster to the curb!
Monday you come around way too quickly...sometimes I feel like I blink and the weekend is over! I was busy crafting some new Christmas decorations! What were you up to this weekend? Are you an early Christmas decorator? (like me 🙈) As I get our apartment all decorated I’ll be sharing it with all of you so stay tuned and send me your beautiful homes decorated for the holidays!
I’m baaaaaack! After 6 months of no ‘grammin I’m back refreshed, with BIG dreams and no one is gonna stop me! I’ve said goodbye to my Instagram anxiety for good and said hello to a more healthy mindset with intention.
So what happened during those 6 months away from Insta?!
I lost over 1K followers! That happens when you’re not active. For those of you still with me, Hiya Pal! So much fun in store for you!
I grew my Pinterest to 2.1 MILLION MONTHLY VIEWERS! How do you like them apples? Instagram who?!
My business got a make-over because I had time to really think about what worked for me and what kind of life I wanted to live. Now I feel like im 100% on the right path and living my true purpose!
I conquered my fears! I still got clients even when I wasn’t active on Instagram! My income doubled AND I got to create products for @Anthropologie for their new Well Done line with MY NAME ON THE PACKAGING! #HumbleBrag#PinchMeImDreaming
I learned that Instagram is a necessary evil, but it doesn’t have to be bad if you don’t allow it to be. You just have to do it with intention. I want to connect with people, I want to create a community of Dreamers and I want to show that you can design a life you love from the inside, out 😜
Its funny, all the things you can do when your energy is not being wasted on useless comparison and anxiety. No longer will I scroll through Instagram and feel like I’m not enough, because I know I am (and so are you!). Her success does not mean your failure, remember that.
I’m excited to be back on Insta now that I know WHY I’m posting and for who. I have my mindset set to *magic* mode and I am ready to roll.
Are you a BIG dreamer like me? Say “Hi!” below and help me celebrate my return to the ‘gram! Ready... GO!

👉Swipe to see this cap sleeve tee on a SUPER lady, I am so grateful to have met this year. @alexisalexislex is a vibrant member of our amAZing community. Her generosity, love of our natural Arizona beauty and goal to make 300 Summit hikes this year, is inspiring. Thanks for all you do lady! .
It seems that there's ALWAYS a day needed after the last day of a market. A day is needed to decompress... To sleep... Rest this aching body and to unload. Today is sort of that day. But it's also time that I get to reflect on the success of a show and interaction with such wonderful customers. I love what I do! 💃 I am grateful to be able to create. I'm grateful I get to travel. I'm grateful I get to meet lots of people and awesome vendors. Thank you to all of those who helped contribute to the success of my small little business. I'm excited to begin creating for next month's show! ❤❤❤ STAY TUNED!! ❌⭕❌⭕
#SuperCamelback vibes right here!

Half our job as designers is solving problems! A mistake on a drawing by the drafter became an amazing opportunity to expand this entry and create a stunning moment. We added ten feet to the length and six feet to the height with the help of our contractor and truss company.
There’s really nothing easy about being an entrepreneur, especially now that I'm a #mompreneur . There are times when I think I must have been insane to ever have chosen this life. In those moments I remind myself of some of the things my clients say like "can you design anything I don't like?" or "you are truly a master at your craft, everything looks so effortless and beautiful." It means so much to receive this kind of feedback and it’s always the thing that keeps me pressing on. What's one thing that someone has said to you about your brand that keeps you motivated? #pacecreative#creativeentrepreneur#creativebusiness#savvybusinessowner#dreamersanddoers
