Weekend Thoughts

So....what are you doing this weekend? I have been up to my ears in moving my office. I had my office located in the third bedroom of my home, but completely outgrew it.

This week I've spent some time (way too much time) moving and rearranging and personalizing........and all those things that go into relocating an office. The great news is that my studio and my office are all in one space now - along with my shipping center! I absolutely am thrilled to have one location - I was pretty tired of traipsing up and down the stairs everytime I needed something.'s a little sneak peek at the beginning stages. I'm a bit embarrassed to show you, so please be kind. I hope to be able to show the after pic sometime in the next week. That is............if I get it done.

til next time......

Your Brand and Your Colors

What does your choice of colors for your branding say about your business? Successful companies know that they can make a statement using color, such as UPS (brown), IBM (blue). Are you using warm colors or cool? Are you sending an energetic message or a calmer, more reserved message?

I recently came across an interesting article by John Williams of Take a moment and read through the universal meanings of colors and think about the message YOUR branding color is sending. Are you conveying the message you want? Does your brand color accurate portray YOUR business?
