The First 30 Days

It's been thirty days (well, tomorrow... I got antsy and decided to post one day early) since I started making some big steps and gutsy decisions with Emily Ley Paper. It's been thirty days since my MTH experience in Watercolor. I had a great conversation with Gina Zeidler last night about MTH as a lifestyle and how the past 30 days has shaped my day to day. Lara & Jeff's MTH tour has BLOWN up and been the talk-of-the-town. But its not just a trend, MTH has really shifted so many people. And its more than just the event itself... making things happen is what you do after the event. It's really about forging ahead and being fearless and passionate and encouraging and stronger and bigger than you thought possible before.

Here is my 30 day recap. Briggs and Harley have become the "Where's Waldo" of my video blogs. See if you can find them. :)

One day I'm going to figure out how to get YouTube to let ME choose the thumbnail it starts with so Im not making my mid-sentence-goofy-face. I should make a collage of these shots...

Hi Emily,
I just found your blog and I'm so glad I did! I'm also working on taking my little design company to the next level. I'd never heard of "making things happen" before, but I'm definitely going to have to check it out.
Best of luck with everything :)
