 Hey Besties! 🌟


As the new beginnings of spring creep in, I'm catching that familiar itch to revamp and renew—this time, setting my sights on a fresh home remodeling adventure! πŸ› ️✨


I've decided to kick things off with our oh-so-cozy second bathroom. It's quaint, yes, but it's also the perfect starter project before diving into the bigger challenges. Just like starting with a sketch before a full-blown painting, right?

Reflecting on the journey so far, it's almost surreal to think that my late husband, James, and I had transformed our entire home from a foreclosure find into our personal haven back in 2015. Here we are, nearly a decade later, and I'm buzzing to sprinkle a little more of 'me' into these walls. πŸ‘πŸ’•

Now, about my decor style—oh, how it's blossomed! From a pristine canvas of whites to rich wood tones paired with whites, and now? Well, now I'm all about blending what I fondly call 'cottagecore chic' with vintage, cozy, grandma vibes. Imagine a potpourri of styles that somehow dance together in perfect harmony. That's what I'm envisioning!

For our petite bathroom, efficiency is key. My game plan? Introducing a pegboard for hanging towels—functional yet stylish. Above this, I'm thinking of some charming wallpaper to inject a burst of personality into the space. πŸŒΌπŸ–Ό️

They capture the essence of what I'm dreaming up: a space that's not just a bathroom but a little nook of nostalgia and warmth, a true reflection of me.

 Hey there, Besties! 🌟✨


Today, I'm diving deep into a topic that's not just close to my heart but practically a piece of it - graphic design. Oh, how this journey began! Picture a seventh grader, wide-eyed and filled with dreams, dabbling in website design. That was me, and let's just say the passion hasn't dimmed even a little. It's been a whirlwind of colors, fonts, and layouts ever since, and guess what? I'm absolutely living for it. πŸŽ¨πŸ’»


Now, after years of mixing, matching, and sometimes mismatching (we've all been there, right?), I feel like I've hit the sweet spot with my blog's colors and fonts. It's like finding the perfect recipe that makes your soul sing. And because sharing is caring, I'm beyond thrilled to pull back the curtain on my brand kits. πŸ’Œ✨


But hold on, let's chat for a sec. What's a brand kit, you ask? Imagine it as your design fairy godmother. It's a magical toolbox that holds all your brand's visual elements - colors, fonts, logos, and more. It's what keeps your style consistent, recognizable, and oh-so-you. Whether you're sprucing up your blog or sending out emails, your brand kit ensures everything screams 'you' at first glance. 🧚‍♀️πŸ› ️


So, without further ado, let's wander through the whimsical world of cottagecore-inspired brand kits I've lovingly crafted in Canva. If you're all about that rustic charm, soft pastels, and a touch of nostalgia that feels like a warm hug, you're in for a treat!

The Dreamy Meadow Kit

Imagine your brand frolicking in a meadow at dawn, the first light kissing the dew. It's a palette of tranquil creams, sage greens, and soft earth tones, paired with fonts that sing songs of the earth – think Chloe and Moontime, each letter crafted with a touch of whimsy.

The Rustic Homestead Kit

Next, we step into the warmth of an old-time kitchen, with hues that tell tales of sunsets on the farm and rich soil between fingers. Fonts like Abril Fatface and Montserrat stand like timeless wood beams, solid and welcoming, a foundation for stories yet to unfold.

The Vintage Garden Kit

Delicate and with the grace of bygone eras, this kit evokes the spirit of a Victorian garden in full bloom. The colors: blush pinks, mossy greens, and a whisper of aged parchment. And the fonts? Poppins and Glacial Indifference, each a nod to the juxtaposition of modern clarity and historical allure.

The Enchanted Cottage Kit

Lastly, for the souls who see magic in the stars and hear whispers in the wind, this kit is for you. It's an elixir of dusky mochas, creamy ivories, and the richest of terra-cotta, all coming together like a spell. The fonts, Black Mango and Quicksand, are the final enchantment, casting your brand's story in the most captivating of lights.


Creating these brand kits has been a journey of love, inspiration, and a little bit of magic. And the best part? Canva has made it delightfully easy to bring these visions to life. Whether you're a seasoned designer or just starting to explore the vast universe of graphic design, remember that your brand is your story. And with the right tools, you can tell it in the most beautiful way possible.


Until next time, keep creating, dreaming, and being the amazing you. And remember, in the vast canvas of life, you're the artist. Paint your story bright and bold. 🌈✨
