I've talked about it a lot and have shared tons of Instagram photos for my new endeavor, but today I'm finally revealing my new business for real! In March, my brother, sister-in-law, hubby and I were talking and decided we should open an another antique mall in our town, and who would have thought we would actually put the plan into action! But here we are, less than 2 months later at our g[...]
If you didn't know, I have lots of different passions - and helping creative entrepreneurs get their feet off the ground is one of them. That's why my friend + former co-worker and I started the Create + Connect Project in January of 2012 - we wanted to create a place where creative entrepreneurs could turn their passion into profit through programs and downloadable ebooks. And now, we're add[...]
At Alt Summit in January, there was a never-ending flow of free goodies. One of my favorites - a silver arrowhead ring from jewelry artist Moorea Seal. My Alt roomie Ciera had a few of Moorea's pieces already, and I was instantly enamored with her work. She takes natural elements like raw stones and arrowheads and mixes them with leather and metal into fun geometric shapes to create one of a ki[...]
Whew! In just the past few weeks, so many fun opportunities and possible collaborations have popped up. It's gonna be a big year. And since the good things are happening, I want to make the Oh, What Love better for my readers. That's why I want to work with other vendors through features, giveaways and guest posts. So, here's what I'm looking for:  - Etsy shops to partner with on give[...]
You guys, I can't even believe that last week is over. For months and months I couldn't see past January 24th, and now it's the 29th and I can hardly process everything that happened at Alt Summit. I planned and planned like crazy, and the planning paid off. My first speaking gig (at a HUGE conference, no less) - checked off my list. While I was nervous and only slept 3 hours the [...]
I'm baaaack! After flight delays, ice, snow and thunderstorms, I am home from Salt Lake City. And it feels good. You guys, Alt Summit was a whirlwind - so much fun but made me appreciate home + the simple things in life too. Like being able to get from point A to point B without spending $30 on a cab. And listening to music all day long like I do everyday. I'll be recapping different [...]
  It's Monday again, but this one is different from the rest. This is the Monday before I leave for Alt Summit in Salt Lake City. This Monday starts possibly the biggest week of my life so far (aside from my wedding day, of course). This week I leap out of my comfort zone and speak in front of a big group of people for the first time. It's the week where I get to meet all of t[...]

I know, I know... everyone is posting about their goals for 2013 right now and looking back on the things that 2012 brought. I'm going to do the same. As I looked back on my goals for 2012, I was happy with what I accomplished - I quit my day job, got featured on some major websites, created a BIG program with a business partner, guest posted all over the place, made time for the things I l[...]
Music is a major part of my life - there is always a song or some lyrics that fit my mood. It's how me and my hubby fell in love. It's how my friends and I connect. So when I need to feel inspired to get some work done or when I'm totally inspired by a project and need a perfect playlist - I've got one. It's full of songs that are upbeat or have lyrics that inspire me. I've got songs fro[...]
