So anyway, I peaced out after supper, I left the table +Jeremy has taken the kids for a bike ride. I am not fine today. I’m fucking bone weary. When I say I’m not fine, this does not mean that Sian has lost her shit. I haven’t raged through the day. I haven’t burst. I’ve been a ‘good mom’. It means that I am, simply, not fine. It means that if you say to me ‘are you ok?’ the honest answer is ‘I’m not fine right now’ it isn’t ‘no and I never will be.’ . This kind of response requires nothing from the person asking the question but for them to have total acceptance of the answer + to not judge it. Like birth: let me be in it without trying to help me out of it. This is an initiation process. This is not a restorative time. It is not restful to have four children home all day who have big feelings + stuff to oversee or to live life in 3 hour increments... ‘breakfast~ lunch~dinner’... and to give them some screen time but not too much + allow them to be bored but no so bored that they cry because they miss everything but yet still encourage them to cry because that’s human + I will raise honest humans if I do nothing else. Being tired of my four kids being home does not mean that I could not homeschool if I wanted to. Or that I’m a bad mother because school made it possible for me to feel balanced. And that I MISS it. It means that today, I’m not fine with no time to myself and there’s no choice about it, that’s the end of it. It doesn’t mean that tomorrow I won’t love a ton of this or that the next day it won’t be the same as this, me hiding out after dinner is done. It all just means that the meal making, the not finding space to pee without a request for a snack, the four walls, the weird look on everyone’s face when you dare to smile to them from the walking path adjacent to them, the awful suspicious air EVERYwhere, the not knowing when the hell i’m going to see my mum and dad, the absolute overwhelm of online everything and minimal opportunity to ground, the lack of eye contact with different people And the removal of constitutional rights in my field of study is making me not fine + for the love of Goddess....THAT’S FINE. I miss real life. You?

MINIS I made a sweet little mini version of the Mary Jane style shoes size made last week. Self drafted shoe pattern and I'm over the moon. It wasn't perfect so I made a version 2 and then a version 3. Version 3 is what I'm stitching up right now with the turquoise heel loop. I wanted a more defined natural foot shape to the toe part which is mostly why I wanted to venture into shoe making in the first place. I wanted to make shoes for my family that fitted to their foot, not their foot to the shoe. So many shoes are not foot shaped and have hard rigid soles that make for weak oddly shaped feet.

Whether you were working on a specific goal, using your gym time to listen to true crime podcasts, or working out for mental health, the sudden overnight shift to be responsible to show up daily in a new environment and stretch your self-motivation muscles, I commend you on committing to moving your body daily. Working out from home has it's own unique challenges, whether it be pets or small children running under your feet, the multitude of distractions, the additional responsibilities that don't exist at the gym, working out from home takes just as much mental strength as physical just to get it done. You don't need expensive gym equipment to get your sweat on and I am loving being able to share these home workouts with you, it's my tiny part of helping you survive this difficult season. This is a fun one to time, as you can challenge yourself each time to beat your personal best! It should take between 25-35 minutes, depending on rest periods. 5 exercise circuits that work the full body. Do 5 reps of each exercise, then 10 reps of each exercise, then 15 reps, then 20, 25, 20, 15, 10, all the way back down to 5. I would love to see videos of you completing this one in your home, make sure to tag me and let me know if you'd like to see more of these efficient home workouts!

Storytelling is ancient medicine. And reading reduces stress by up to 60%. And wearing a flower crown feels fabulous. So today, at somewhere around 3pm (who knows, we might be knee-deep in mid afternoon bickering over who gets the pink plastic wand that uncle Matthew bought, by then) my girls and I are going to be sitting down to read a book from Beatrix Potter’s Peter Rabbit series. And tonight, some time between wiping floured fingers off my forehead and folding my kids up in blankets and slipping into silk, I’ll be coming back for some bedtime reading for Priestesses. I’ll be reading The Magdalene Manuscript: The Alchemies of Horus and the sex magic of Isis. I can tell you that all books involved here feel like velvet hands stroking your soul. See you there on my Love. Flower crowns, silk and all 🌹 #modernbardmedicine 📖 . @lisapedersenphotography photoart. 💜

Easter is almost here and it’s an interesting one this year because I had to do all the Easter shopping online. .

Bet you didn't know that I've been up to something?! Like other entrepreneurs in the city, when the tides shift, we adapt, change and think of new ideas! What is this be idea, you ask? I'd love to tell you. I've been looking for a way to support the small businesses in Calgary that need a little love doing this crisis, as well as local communities. I recognized that there is a need to connect small business with consumers and city folk to build a network of support. This is where Connect YYC came from. And the best way for me to do that is through stories of hope and struggles, expressed in images. For $35 you can book a Connect YYC session online. I will visit you at your business for a mini shoot (about 15 minutes from at least a 2 meter distance of course), and provide you with 3-5 photos that you can use in your marketing. Or share the love and buy a #ConnectYYC session for a local business of your choice. $5 from every shoot goes to a local charity. ❤️📸🧑‍🤝‍🧑 . . . #smallbizyyc #yycsmallbiz #supportyyc #yyc  #yycentrpeneurs  #Calgary  #celebrateyyc #curiocitycalgary  #yycbiz  #myyyc  #capturecalgary  #yycphotographer  #yycdowntowm #calgarylove #supportlocalyyc  #localphotography  #OurYyc #yycevents  #calgarybiz #yyclove  #donateyyc  #yycculture  #businessportrait  #yyccares  #calgarycares #buylocalyyc #yycfun #yycnetwork

NEARLY THERE with the manly shoes. First one has a leather sole and I've just started on hand stitching the sole to the second one. Once the soles are stitched on I will glue a vibram sole to the bottom. In similar news, I love the brown mary jane style shoes that I made so much. Now that I've settled into them they are a little wide and a little long but they still work. Next time I'll make them a touch shorter and skinnier and will put an outdoor sole on them.

From an outdoor install the other day. Balancing work between outside temps. and covid has been tricky. Make hay while the sun shines has been literal for exterior work. That said, it's the safest kind of install at the moment and I'm looking forward to some outdoor work in the coming weeks. If your business is looking at getting anything done exterior, let us know. Now is the time to start planning. #yyc #calgary #staysafe #signshop #yycbiz #takeoffyahoser

Something to ponder in your business. I’ve had a few conversations with employees about this. That is, how much they hate lying for an employer. How it affects them, etc. I have even been put in those situations in the past & know how gross it feels too. Here’s my thoughts & encouragement on this for your healthy business. An employee should NEVER have to lie for you or your company. It may seem innocent enough but the damage it causes is astronomical. I’ve seen how it takes a good person & slowly poisons them. It may seem like not a big deal but I encourage you to do your research. It breaks trust between you & others. It wears down your employees health with mental issues, anxiety, stress, affects sleep, etc. Real issues that could be hurting your business don’t get dealt with. It trickles into all your lives & can hurt your relationships outside of the office. This is only a couple things there’s a lot more. As you reflect you’ll see it’s poison. A lie can feel like a pain killer that gives instant relief but it’s actually a life sentence of slow decay. This isn’t something you want to be responsible for doing to others. It comes back to you. I encourage you to really consider building your business on truth always. Truth hurts but it cures & creates a space full of life. It produces more good fruit in your economy & community. People know they can depend on you to be transparent. They feel more confident & secure with you. Employees are in better health & happier. They respect you & want to work with you. Consumers want to do business with you, etc. Honesty really is the best policy. Consider it, no matter how hard. Every truth you speak is a seed planted in good soil. It will produce good fruit. Speaking truth is loving & spreads light into the world. Your business, employees & community all win in the end.

The elusive highlights. What the heck do you do with those randomly floating circles? Lol Highlights are saved IG stories & can be a great way to connect with leads. Say you’ve made a great story packed with tons of value for your people that you don’t want to lose. Highlights. What’s the strategy here? Treat highlights as if they are your website. You generally have a certain navigation menu on your website. Home, about, products, etc. Go look at your website if you still have one. Ask yourself which of these are the most valuable for everyone? Some good ones are tips, about me, faq, contact us, & product results. This can take a looky Lou to warm lead in your business. What cover should you use? You can get a cover designed for your highlights & not the photo IG chooses for it. If this is what you choose, get a design that’s simple & sums up the topic it’s about. It has to catch the eye & make sense. Or for more authentic, use camera roll shots that are more raw & show you more. But again think of how it goes with the topic you’re highlighting. You can have as much fun as you want. Get creative! To go with this I also would suggest keeping your titles short. Again, you have to catch people quickly. Plus, IG cuts it off if its too long. So like your website one word generally works best. Last but not least, be sure to add a call to action at the end of your stories on that highlight for them to DM you. This creates engagement & you can take it from there to getting know each other, a phone call, buying product, etc. I hope this helps you utilize your highlights better. Need a coach? I’m here for you. DM me today for more information. · · · #highlights #business #canada #yeg #yyc #entrepreneur #edmonton #calgary #entrepreneurship #businessman #yegphotographer #businesswoman #yycphotographer #success #yegfitness #highlight #businesslife #startup #businessowners #entrepreneurs #entrepreneurlifestyle #businesspassion #entrepreneurlife #yycrestaurants #yegrestaurants #yegbiz #yegrealestate #yycbiz #yycrealestate #canadianbusiness

Most of us have had our normal routines thrown way off, and are all adjusting to a new norm. The state of the world right now brings uncertainty, anxiety and an uncomfortable feeling of the unknown. We can’t do anything about those things, but we can take control of the little things in life that bring peace, comfort and wellbeing. We have control over our bedtimes (unless you’re a shift worker and in that case, I send my utter gratitude!). We can control our water intake. We can wake up an hour earlier before we start work from home, turn into the cook, the cleaner, the teacher or all of the above to get in a quick workout. Do a daily check in: 👇🏼 ✔️ How am I feeling today? ✔️ What am I grateful for? ✔️ What can I do tomorrow to move the needle in the direction I want to? I move my body because I love the feeling of being strong, treating it to what it needs to be healthy, and my mind is a happier place when it gets fed those endorphins. So? What will YOU do today for YOU?

Here's an updated graph representing the number of showings in Alberta and how COVID-19 has affected them. Check out the graph I posted last week for comparision. 📈⠀ ⠀ It did look like we were seeing an uptick in showings when looking at last weeks data... as you can see, that wasn't the case. 🤷🏻‍♂️⠀ ⠀ A positive... the number of showings hasn't significantly dropped anymore which could indicate signs of a bottom or plateau.⠀ ⠀ This is a good thing because if we are at a bottom in the number of showings... its only up from here! 😅⠀ ⠀ Share this with someone! ✅⠀ ⠀ #yeg #yegrealestate #yegbusiness #yegbiz #yegrealtor #yegre #yeginfill #yegbuilder #edmontonrealestate #edmontonrealtor #edmontonalberta #albertarealestate #canadianrealestate #albertacanada #edmontonbusiness #yyc #yycrealestate #yycbusiness #yycbiz #yycrealtor #yycre #yycbuilder #calgaryrealestate #calgaryrealtor #calgaryalberta #realtoring #realestateagent #realestatetips #realestatemarket #realestate

Welcome to our weekly book club! 📚 We thought it would be fun to post a book we love each week related to personal growth, health or wellness. This week we chose the “Untethered Soul”. This book serves as a great reminder to really slow down and be present. It highlights how so much of our suffering is created by the way we choose to *look* at our life’s circumstances, rather than the circumstances themselves. Michael does a great job at reminding us of what we all know deep down to be true, that happiness and peace come from *within*, rather than changing the world around you. This is a really comforting and empowering book to read amidst everything that’s going on. Have you read this book, if so what did you think of it? If not, what book have you read recently that really hit home?

A couple of weeks (months, years?) ago, we asked how you want your customers or clients to feel. We got some incredible answers: loved, relieved, special, connected, appreciated, just to name a few. Now, to work backwards. What are you sprinkling into your customer experience to achieve that? If we want our customers to be delighted, what do we do? If we want customers to feel like our friends, how do we do that? If we want our customers to feel respected, how do we demonstrate respect? 📸: @dallas.alexandra

Hey EVERYONE 👋, ⠀ My name is JOSE and I am the founder of NIDUM 😎 (@we_are_nidum ), an HRtech company creating VR training modules for businesses! 🙌🏻 ⠀ Back in 2015, I embarked on my most UNEXPECTED business venture and founded a restaurant brand in Calgary called REGRUB (@regrub_love ) – it was quite the risk since, prior to that, I had never worked in the food industry, not even for an hour 😬 ⠀ People kept telling me how harsh this industry was and that I should stay away from it, but my passion to create a innovative, quirky and cool brand, and naiveness kept me going 😀! ⠀ GREAT THING because it flipped my life upside down! ✊🏽 ⠀ The one obstacle that I didn’t anticipate when establishing RE:GRUB (Burger backwards :D) was the operational issues — including on-boarding and training my staff. It really took a hit on our growth as we kept missing the boat on bringing the right people into the company – we tried everything possible to properly onboard, train, and offer tools to our new hires, but nothing was working effectively! 🙈 ⠀ Then SERENDIPITY came, and we realized we were not tapping into the best possible employee pool— vulnerable communities! ⠀ So this is why NIDUM was BORN.... ⠀ To be CONTINUED 🙃...

Good Monday! You guys, we have been in a global quarantine for three weeks now! Let’s take a minute to pat everyone on the back (virtually) and take a nice deep breath. I, for one, would like to express my own gratitude for all the love I see spreading across the world for our essential service people. And I would like to somehow put into the universe my thanks to all those who we don’t know about, but are yet keeping the world going in some way. Thank you. . . And I would love for you to “meet” Shawnee Hoffman from @artsyfartsysh ! Shawnee has been spreading her artistic creativity in Southern Alberta for many years now and I just KNOW you’ve seen her work some way. I did not know Shawnee that well when she approached me with helping her redo her branding, but I’m so happy to have gotten to know her better now! . . And can I just say as a creative person… When one creative soul engages another creative soul, there is a humbling. It is such an honour really, to have someone like this entrust you with something so creative and important as your business image. . . Shawnee wanted to update her image in a way that kept true to the fun, whimsy of her work and logo. She also knew she wanted purple and a paintbrush in there. . .
I absolutely LOVED working with Shawnee on this update for her business. It is not often I get to help someone portray a playful and artistic image. . . Please also check out Shawnee’s Facebook page as she is providing everyone with some wonderful artistic videos and I believe a Free Online Painting Class on April 7! Her tag is @ArtsyFartsySH! . . #chelseydesign #logodesign #artsyfartsy #graphicdesigner #graphicdesign #rebrand #logoupdate #artisticbusiness #shoplocalairdrie #airdriebusiness #airdriegraphicdesigner #crossfieldgraphicdesigner #yycbiz #onlinepaintclass #covid19 #creativeinalberta #airdrieartist #makeupartist #proartist #logo

Happy Monday ! . Let’s talk about something positive. Me and my husband have spent a lot of time together the past couple of weeks, we were not going out for work, we were not waiting for the other to come home to leave the kids and run errands . I can’t remember the last time we have spent this much time with each other, so I’m grateful for the time we have had the past couple of weeks as a couple (when the kids are asleep of course ) and as a family. . What are you grateful for ?
