If you’ve been around here a while, you’ve noticed a few changes, especially in my Instagram account! This blog has always, first and foremost, been about creating more joy in your every day. When it first started, it was primarily focused on planning and designing every day celebrations. But, as it evolved, more and more of you wanted custom designed party goods, so I incorporated hand lettered and hand drawn art into those celebrations.
Although the focus was still on creating joy in every day, for the last couple of years, this blog hasn’t been focused just on celebrations, but on adding joy to your life, little by little, throughout your day. In addition to celebrations, I talked more about little things that could create joy – how to enjoy little moments, decorating and filling your home with joy, self care, how to create joy with hand lettering, and spreading joy to our loved ones.
One topic that I’ve touched on that has been hugely popular for y’all has been the Enneagram. I first shared about how it has helped my marriage, on Instagram, in April 2019. You guys had a big response to that post and then in August of 2019, I illustrated my first Enneagram Type collage. And, woah! My instagram blew up. I went from around 5000 follower to almost 20,000 in about a month. And, even now, the Enneagram posts are my most popular Instagram posts.
If you are unsure what the enneagram is, it’s basically a personality typing system that characterizes people’s emotions and behaviors based on their core motivations and fears. I’ll be sharing more about it in the future because I believe it’s such an essential tool for creating joy in your life. And based on y’all’s response to my posts about it, it seems like it’s a tool that you are hungry for!
