I know what it’s like to get started. As a blogger myself, I was in beginner’s shoes once. Starting as a new mom who hired a website designer, I quickly discovered that I wanted to make it easy, convenient, and simple for anyone to start their own boss babe empire or develop their passion.
Whatcha think of our new blog design? Since Miss Pickles and I started working together (near the beginning of the year) I couldn’t wait to get an illustration from her. She was designing so many of my clients illustrations for their new blog design and I decided it was time to change mine. I gave her a list of exactly what I wanted on my character.

Cute outfit wearing a pair of capri jeans and heals
Holding a laptop in one hand and a pair of sneakers in the other (I’ll explain in this post)
I sent her a picture of how I wear my hear and it sits below my shoulders
I gave her the colors that I wanted to use in my new blog design
She emailed me back with a few more questions and a few days later I got my first draft. I was hopping in my chair when I saw it. It is so cute and exactly how I pictured it. I did have a few changes to make but they were very minor. Miss Pickles was very easy and friendly to work with and I am so happy we found each other.
Why the sneakers and teddy bear?
The teddy bear is an easy simple answer. I wanted to tie in the “Mommy” aspect of my site and my life. I am a stay at home mom that works from home. I am very blessed an fortunate to have the option of staying home with my kids and they are a huge part of why I started this business.
The sneakers that my character is holding means so many things. First it represents that I can’t always wear cute heals when I want. Being a stay at home mom I have to keep up with my kids on a daily basis and that is not always easy in heals 🙂 Second, I enjoy running and trying to keep healthy. Running was always something I enjoyed doing when I was young and even now I love it. I feel so good afterwards and feel like I can take on anything. I sit in front of my computer almost all day everyday and it’s nice to get out of the house for some fresh air. It’s also my time to myself. I can accomplish so much in my head (LOL but seriously).
