A couple weeks ago this public exhibition happened in Antigua’s central park. 144 United Buddy Bears travelled from Berlin to promote tolerance, unity and respect amongst all humans. 〰️ The second picture shows the Guatemalan bear with the national flower Monja Blanca and a traditional belt created with the indigenous backs-trap weaving process 🇬🇹
::Organization:: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Organization is key to running a successful business and staying sane. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I've hopped around in trying to figure out exactly what organization tools work the best for me and I think I've finally settled on something that works great for me. A few things I tried: handwritten list in my planner, Evernote, Asana. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I'm back to Asana now. When I used it previously I was frustrated with having to hop between clients to see the to-do list. I recently realized that in putting deadlines on tasks that I'm able to view all the tasks for the day in a calendar format. LOVE IT!! The other cool thing is that it has the option of upgrading to a team, if and when that happens. This tool has truly been a lifesaver in the last few weeks in staying on top of everything. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What are you using to stay organized? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #mycreativebiz#inspiredesignco#logodesign#businessdesign#logodesigner#logodesignerohio#businessbranding#buildingastorybrand#bookdesign#myentrepreneurlife#joyintheordinary#smallmomentsofcalm#smallbusinesses#smallbizlife#aquietstyle #calledtobecreative #mycreativebiz #communityovercompetition #beyourownboss #dreamrsanddooers #lovemybiz #creativebiz #growthmindset #solopreneur #theimperfectboss #societygal #hellobosscreative #justboss #creativefeed #mycreativecommunity
The most fun thing I’ve learned about conscious living is how connected it all is. For me, it started with caring about myself + family and the chemicals I was using in my home. As I learned how conventional products filled with toxic chemicals were not just bad for us, but the environment, my interest in planet care was piqued. I dove head first into environmental issues, and I learned that what was in my closet was a major culprit of climate change. The fashion industry is one of the worst polluting industries in the world, and it’s created a vicious cycle of wanting more and over consuming that the planet doesn’t have the resources to keep up with. This research led me to learn about how poorly garment workers (who are mostly women) are treated, and I didn’t want my money to go towards any brands who were abusing human life like that anymore. . It may seem overwhelming at first, but truly, one small positive change leads to another. Starting is the most important step. . And another amazing perk: each change makes your life better. You’re filled with JOY because the impact of your choices are producing good in the world. You aren’t caught in the trap of over consumption and trying to keep up to feel good enough anymore. You get to know yourself better because you’re asking how YOU want to live your life instead of living it by society’s standards. . It’s a beautiful journey, and all you have to do is start.
Hope these crazy gargoyles are ready for me, because, Paris, I’m coming for you! Finished packing about three seconds before I walked out the door (as per usual) and I’m ready for the good, bad, and ugly included in a proper adventure—bring on the delays! Give me all the food! Amaze me! Exhaust me! Make me cry and make me laugh! I’m ready. ✨
After many tears shed and curses growled in attempts to get flowers down to just how I wanted them, I think I’m finally getting somewhere. Here is an up close detail shot of my favorite part on the canvas.
Strawberries are everywhere here in SoCal, and since the whole family can pretty much live off of strawberries— but that excludes me because I much more enjoy tropical fruit—I got almost 10 pounds worth of the stuff for the lowest price ever. 🙊 I do, however, enjoy strawberry as the main ingredient in a drink! So this is going into a boozeless fizzy strawberry cooler. Yes, indeed.

Is it Thursday introductions or Friday? I’m just gonna do Thursday introductions because there are quite a few new people that I’ve just connected with and want to get you know more and share a bit about myself. . . My full name is Jessica Faith Tobler, maiden name Plyler. I married a wonderful man of God back in 2017 and our honeymoon gift is our one year old named Elijah. I own my own Social Media Marketing business that birthed out of a couple of prophetic words and countless “Yesses” to God over the last few years that I actually didn’t understand when I said YES but now makes so much sense. Faith is so so real, y’all. I truly have a wonderful connection with God and friendship. I did Not grow up in a Christ centered home. My mom left when I was 3 and my Dad struggled with addiction his entire life and he passed away last February. I did, however, get to lead my Dad to the Lord and am thankful to know where he is today. My past is wild but I am completely transformed. When you give your whole life to God he will make it brand new. My goal in life and through Social Media, blogging etc is to reveal the closeness of God in every part of our lives and to teach you how to connect with him, whether you are in the Marketplace or in the church, He is in it all. . Now, tell me about YOU 👇🏼😌

Book 6 of 2019 is Koko Be Good by Jen Wang _____________________ This graphic novel explores what it means to be good. Is it something you can attain by altering behaviors? Is it simply an internal reality caused by factors beyond us? Is attempting to do ‘the right thing’ always the good thing? Overall, I wasn’t dramatically moved by the storyline, but appreciated Jen Wang’s art and the amount of complexity she was able to infuse into such a short storyline about the trajectory three people’s lives take after a chance encounter. _____________________ “After all that effort and trying to do the right thing. I was more worried about losing love than I had love to give.”
On the first day of summer, my true love gave to me...a new house for our family! . Living in a small townhouse as a family of 4 has been...umm...different 🤣🤣 (although it is nice to be able to clean the whole house in basically an hour). But we can’t wait to start filling our new home with memories! Also, those green shutters and doors are the FIRST thing to go 🙈
