Delve Into Me: A Close Look At the Bloggers You Love (008)

Today's interview is going to be a little bit different than the one's I've done in the past. Emily from Lynde Avenue contacted me a few weeks ago, asking for an interview - and I happily agreed. Read on to learn more about her. :)

What are the best types of design clients?

Ones who return emails quickly and are very flexible. My turnaround time for designs is pretty fast, so it's awesome to get feedback as soon as possible! I also like clients who are flexible, because sometimes there are just certain elements that I can't create or don't know how to, and I love bloggers who are super understanding about that sort of thing.

What's your designing pet peeve?

Hm...I'm not too fond of designing with the color blue, but I suppose that's more personal preference than pet peeve :P I'm going to have to say, when my graphics don't download properly *shudders*

Where do you draw inspiration?

Inspiration is everywhere! Some of the questions I ask on my design form is for a color theme and a mood, possibly even a link to a photo. Based on the vibe I get from those it's pretty easy to move forward from there!

Have you ever had a design where you just don't know what to create for someone?

It's happened to me a couple of times...my advice for that is to create the header first. Once your header is on point, the entire design is basically done ;)

What are some of your must-have resources when creating a design?

I love PicMonkey for creating graphics, Pinterest for inspiration, and Photobucket for hosting images! I'd like to add Photoshop to that list in the near future, but since my designs are free and I haven't got a job I'm broke at the moment :P

How to Begin Your Self-Love Journey This Year

When I originally had the idea for this piece of writing I’m about to share with you, I was in a place of transition. I didn’t know my place in the world, I didn’t know if I was worth it and I certainly didn’t feel like I could love myself. Here I am almost a year later, an example of how this works - if you choose to put it into practice. You can improve and learn to love yourself. You can take the steps that bring you into a better place.

I won’t say it was easy and I certainly won’t say I had overnight success, but when you learn to fight your battles one at a time, you’ll be able to look back and see how far you’ve come.

Are you ready to take the first step?



Self Love: Step one I have always been a timid person. I’ve always had trouble keeping the standards I have for myself something below what I deem “perfect”. I enjoy discipline and when I don’t know what to do or my world is shaken, I’m hard on myself.

That’s just who I am.

With that said, I've always felt like I was not a…

A Love Letter

To my dear, blooming Rose - Attached to this letter is not only my love, but my gratitude, thankfulness and a small box of decadent dark chocolates. I would've had flowers delivered too, but no measly plant could ever compare or express my feelings toward you.

Ahh, my dear. You are my truest bundle of joy. It does not matter what mood you are in - you light up my day in the most wonderful of ways.

Your smile makes the sun jealous. Your embrace makes me feel full. Your laughter - so thick and loud - makes me want to laugh too.

What I love most is when you are truly and purely being yourself - because that's who you're meant to be.

With much love and kisses blown with a wink,
Your Secret Admirer

PS: Maybe we could share those chocolates later, eh?

When you need some uplifting, write yourself a love letter. Be silly and positive. Analyze yourself. Amp up your best qualities. De-sock your feet as you write and wiggle your toes as your write (then put your socks back on b…
