Wait what?!....life changing statement made.
As you see I didn't let it stop me, but it halted my progress for way too long. I let someone's version of who I was and who I could be stop me.
That taught me a valuable lesson.
Until my college graphic design teacher told me I'd never be a designer in the real world....
That's what I'm here for -- to help you channel your inner brilliance better known
as your "special sauce" into a tangible brand.
So you don't have to just dream of what that could look like, let's put it into action!
Behind this creative machine is a book lover, sports fan, sugar addict, Food Network fan, dog mom, self-proclaimed foodie, beer geek and wife to my own superhero.
I’ve also been known to supplement my caffeine fix (tea please) with a nice dark and stormy or old-fashioned cocktail….it’s 5’ o’clock somewhere right?!?
Finally got solid on what I do well, who I do it for, creating a side partnership with an amazing marketer and friend (love ya V) and growing not only something amazing but stepping into my own brilliance.
After the end of the stationery business and dissolving that partnership. I began reinventing myself and figuring it all out...to stationery or not to stationery that is the question? I decided to combine my skills/education/and side projects to being diving into brand design and strategy and some print (because you can never take the print out the girl -- hence the business name "The Printed Orchid").
In the midst of balancing a government job, getting a masters degree, and starting a stationery company with a college friend after helping her with her wedding. This was the beginning of my dive into having a design career beyond just doing a few jobs on the side.
I graduated college and moved back home with no clear direction on what life should look like or my career should be outside of finding a way to pay my looming student loan bill. I learned a ton of practical skills during this time, starting in retail and then transitioning to government.
2003, was the official unofficial start into my creative career by way of the start of my undergraduate education. I was a graphic design major and a sociology minor and this ended up being some of the most pivotal 4 years of my life.
Progress is a process, everything has its place.
Being open and authentic allows for so much growth.
Simplicity is key, more is not always more.
Move with passion and intentionality - duality is a plus.
Being you and choosing you is always a win
Richard the proverbial pain in my butt but fills my heart too. Plus he's right beside me when I create all amazing things.
My amazing husband J because of his unwavering support, love and he always knows exactly what I want to eat (cause, thats love).
Everything is in total alignment - I love it all. Truly - I don't think I've ever been so smitten with something so quickly.
Now that I've worked with Terrica once...I don't want to work with anyone else. She just gets it. Easily one of the top 5 investments I've made for my business.
