.......................



.......................
 
Thanks so much for having me here at RikRak!

 I'm Anna.

 I am a graphic designer, accessory designer, wife and momma.

 I blog about  all things design, small business tips, even a little fashion over here at *in honor of design.*

 {You might be surprised to hear that I have absolutely zero sense of direction on the road! The first year I lived in Atlanta I got lost going to the grocery store and just about every where else until I finally got used to the area!}

Beyond blogging, my  perfect day waking up back home in the south, with my hubby and babies, eating breakfast on the back porch, talking about our children and making dream travel plans, listening to U2 live (hey a girl can dream right?)

I'm kind of an emotional preggo mama these days with the tendency to cry over commercials and stories about new babies.

.......................

 Here's one of my favourite photos of myself!

I love this photo because it shows the joy this little boy brings me in my day to day life,

I just finished designing and styling my Spring Accessory Line, and just started tips for small business series on the blog. I'm in the middle of designing the Spring issue of Radiant magazine, so life is full of adventures right now!

I love making new friends,meeting new people, keeping in touch with old ones


My husband makes me laugh harder than anyone I know and my son makes me happy to be alive

A word I love to use is  lovely!

And I may have made up the words fantabulous and fluidity?!


.......................
I am thankful for the amazing people and opportunities I have come across through blogging.

The creativity and the inspiration aspect of it completely motivate me!

I began blogging to document and share design inspiration and now I blog for those reasons and many more!

It amazes about blogging that it is such a strong and supportive community! I have learned so much from other bloggers

My 3 tips to a great blog would be:

originality
consistency in themes
communication with readers 

Gosh! It's challenging blogging when I could spend hours on posts and reading other blogs, but have only a limited time each day to do so.
But fear not, I just have become more efficient with my time

 One of my most memorable blog posts I've ever written is this one on a significant mile marker. I like how its a great reminder for me to appreciate the blessings in my life and remember littlest of your dreams can be made possible through God's grace.

I  look forward to my morning coffee and reading other blogs.

I love the Oh Joy! blog because it's innovative and full of unique finds.

and I  absolutely adore the Creature Comforts  blog because it's always inspirational and full of creative content.

and of course the Daybook blog is my favorite fashionista blogger because it's fun to read,  has tons of outfit inspiration, and Sydney is an IHOD accessory model.

One thing I wish I had learned sooner in bloggyville is that you don't have to have a certain amount of posts per week or re-invent the wheel to present the right content.

and don't worry: if you don't have a large amount of followers. Focus on creating your own style and offering good content, the readers will come!

My favourite part of blogging is providing a resourceful place for readers and getting to know who they are

However, I could do without the many distractions that come with blogging that want to eat up your time

Something fun happening on my blog these days is the color files.
