Is your brand effective?? Or just “pretty”?
People spend so much time consumed with creating a beautiful brand, that forget that the goal is to be a RESOURCE to your target market. They should know they’re in the right place as soon as they land on your page! What problem do you solve??
I help businesses connect with their target audience authentically, without gimmicks. ✨✨

It took me awhile before fully embracing the title of an artist. Many people around me would refer to me as a "painter", "artist", or any of the other things I would be creating, but I, myself, was not able to accept such a label. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Somewhere deep inside, I felt like an imposter — not being trained classically as a painter (my background is in music and graphic design) and trying to be in line with those who graduated from art colleges, studying fine art, simply put, made me feel inadequate. But you know what? That was all me and had nothing do with anyone else or what they represented. For those who decided to take traditional paths or others who embarked on life immediately, at the end of the day, it does not matter. What matters is finding our way to the start line and realizing that there are unlimited ways of climbing up a mountain, but better yet, there are varieties of mountains from which we can choose! And what is even better? You can climb as many as you like. :) (Like those "Choose Your Own Adventure" books. I loved those. Have you read them?) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
There is no right or wrong way to build a career doing what you love, and it is as unique as each and every one of us. We all have varied life experiences, viewpoints, and ways of expression — it would be stranger trying to pigeon hole ourselves to be the same, no?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So, I started to embrace being an "artist", not because of what the title might mean to some, but to make it my own and through that, hopefully bring others along to climb up all types of mountains, together. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I'm starting this morning with coffee, still wishing I had a donut (check out my last post with yummy donuts in it for more details on that...), and sketching for some awesome new templates I'll be offering in my shop AND the shop I'm collabing on with Marie (she's @augustandwhitedesigns in case you didn't know).⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I'm also looking forward to an amazing massage this evening (my first ever!) and to say I'm excited is an understatement. I needed to treat myself for all the hard work I've done lately. That's right, I'm tootin' my own horn friend!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So, I'd love to know, what is something you've been working your butt off on and how do you unwind, relax, and take care of yourself? Let me know in the comments!
Hello, hello is this thing still on? I’m still here. 👋🏼 I’ve been full of a horrid cold/flu thing, which has made for a very quiet half term. Today I’ve dropped the girls off at my parents and I’m able to catch up on some work. And yes I’m totally working from bed right now, and yes I probably should’ve moved my PJs bottoms before taking this shot but ya know; I’m just keeping things real over here.
Finish your coffee and let's CRUSH today!
Trust that you've got what it takes to make a dent in this world. Be aware of the value you add to everything you touch. Be inspired by your own creativity because it's pretty spectacular. Don't wait for anyone to sing your praises - be SO confident that you can stand on your own. Be SO confident that, with or without praise, you KNOW your worth! I know, easier said than done. But I believe in you dreamer - you got this! Pic from the last time I visited NYC - TAKE ME BACK!
I've decided to extend the sale on my Planned Instagram Packages until the end of February🤗
I'm working on some new service packages that will be added to the shop in March, so I thought I'd keep the discount up in case anyone wants to take advantage of the lower prices.
These Instagram Packages are ready-made, consisting of curated images, fully prepared captions and carefully selected hashtag collections to make Instagram one less thing you need to worry about during those truly hectic days.
If you'd like to shop the sale, head on over to the Polished Pages Etsy shop by following the link in my bio ( @polished_pages )
LIMITED SPOTS LEFT!
I’m planning to work on skin tone(s) a little darker than these with blueish undertones next.
I really tried to keep the rest of the paper clean, so that I could add more underneath, but I guess that’s not happening. 🙃
It's FRIENDLY FRIDAY... We're back!

I am currently doing a special bird of paradise flower piece for a client, and I did a personal painting to see if the client likes my interpretation of this flower. Happily she does and I can start working on the real thing!💚🧡💙 #yearofcreativehabits#ksdailyart#inspiredbynature_
Sometimes I wish we lived in a world where the only way we could communicate with long-distance friends was by letter - how much more thoughtful would we be with our correspondence? But then I remember that that world probably doesn’t sit in peaceful coexistence with instagram, and I’m not sure I’d give that up 😉. But hey, we can have both, thanks to good old Royal Mail 📮..... so let’s make a pact, to write more letters to each other! And eat more good old fashioned toast and jam. To not over-complicating things- who’s with me? 💌
