Original image: Writing? Yeah. by Caleb Roenigk (Flickr)
I'll be honest, I secretly like to put "like a boss" on the end of random sentences as it delights me to end.  (Like a Viking is another choice one.)

But today's meanderings were inspired by another boss lady I know, Ms. Marie Forleo.
Originally I was going to leave all of this as a comment.  Till I found myself continuing to type and thought, "Uhm yea, this shiz is going on the blog!"

So first and foremost, writing is something that comes naturally to me.  Rarely is it something I struggle with.  But even with that said there are some definite tips and tricks that help me to write better and faster - especially when it comes to business writing.


My #1 tip is to use a template.
Picture
It may sound corny or cheesy, but it works like a charm.  I write my newsletters like this, my product listings, and even my social media posts.  The thing with a template is that it takes the guesswork out of your writing.  No wondering where to put links, how to put them there, what headings or subheadings you want to hit on, or even the flow of the work.

I like it to filling out a form.  That way your information centers are covered and you can go about your business.

Now if you're like me and you find yourself a little scattered sometimes, another tip you might consider is this:


Free write to brain dump all of your ideas.


Think of it like formal writing de-constructed.  The last time I wrote up a sales page for Butterfly Phoenix Coaching I went with this method.  It's great for when you have so much information or so many ideas that it's hard to mentally organize a good flow.  You can write, re-write, scribble, doodle, or even cross out if you like.
Picture
My big tip with this is to not erase.  Erasing is editing, thinking, overthinking, or otherwise trying to take an idea back.  The purpose of the free write is to just get it out there no holds barred.

Once you get on a roll with your writing this tip comes super in handy...


Always write in batches when you can.


While this tip isn't always possible, especially when I have time constraints.  I've adopted it to how I work during the week for both of my businesses.  The whole idea of batch working isn't new.  It's very assembly line-ish and allows you to get a good chunk done at a time.  I find when it comes to writing its even more affective because many times you'll get on that roll and the words will just flow after a point.

Ride that train!
Picture
This tip & the last are the keys to writing approachable copy, because there's nothing worse than someone talking to you and talking above your head!

Ditch the jargon.

Again, not a new thing but it does bear repeating.  Whenever you're talking about something you're really knowledgeable about it's easy to slip into the trap of using industry terms.  But you always must keep in mind to whom you are speaking.  You don't have to sound stupid or dumb it down (and frankly I hate that phrase), but make sure the person you can talk to can follow you.

My last little tip is just an insider tool (not that insider) that I use when I want to make sure I'm being comprehensible.

Give Hemingway App a shot.


While I've seen it get mixed reviews, Hemingway App is great for creating simple copy.  This is especially important when you're writing for business, but anything that is explanatory, or will reach a wide audience of varied educational backgrounds benefits from this.

Now that you've read this post, be sure you head over and check out what Marie has to say on the matter: How To Write Fast: 8 Secrets To Better, Quicker Content Creation.

But before you go I'd love for you to share with me in the comments below:
  • What tip will you try to use in your writing?
  • Do you have any other suggestions for people struggling with writing?
  • What sort of writing do you usually do?

It's finally time...which means stepping away, slowing down, and learning to go with the flow of baby!

Just a few notes on what's up this week including:  astro insights, a little Celtic wisdom, personal bits & bobs, and some studio updates...
Astro Insights...The New Moon (5/18, 12:13 am) enters Gemini (5/18, 5:27 am) today.  This energy encourages learning pursuits and research.  It's also a wonderful time to finish off anything old and begin new things.  Gemini is a jack of all trades so if you have trouble juggling multiple tasks you can connect with this energy to aid in that too!  It's also a good time to patch things up with siblings too!

Elsewhere in the sky, Mercury is going retrograde (5/18, 9:49 pm).  This typically seems to be a time where technology, communication, and the like go a little haywire.  Begin negotiations and any sort of communicating with caution knowing that miscommunication may happen a tad more frequently for the next month or so!  It's a perfectly good time to go and evaluate things in your life though and go back to the figurative drawing board!
Picture
A little Celtic wisdom...The Celtic Tree Month of Hawthorn is upon us (starting today)!  Under this influence it's important to remember that not all is what it seems!  Don't shy away from connecting with that deep creativity that flows inside and making things happen.  Whether you're re-arranging, gardening, or making something go for it with gusto!  
Picture
On a personal note...I'll be taking a hiatus from some of our regularly scheduled programming here.  Babies, despite their minimal size are a lot of work!  You'll still hear from me on social media, but the blogs & product updates may take a little longer to come.  I'm not entirely sure how everything will work out, I know better than to try and force a plan on a newborn!

In the studio...Anticipation of a hospital stay has had me thinking of new things to make to share with you!  An obsession with all things baby resulted in a nursing necklace design...which then led to me starting a nursing wrap to match!
In the comments below, share with me...
  • What have you been dying to learn about?
  • What in your life needs re-evaluation?
  • What can you make this month?

Beltane, Full Moon in Scorpio, looming due date...no wonder I feel like I'm going to explode!

Just a few notes on what's up this week including:  astro insights, sabbat & esbat suggestions, personal bits & bobs, some studio updates, and what's new on the blog & in the shop..
Astro Insights...The Full Moon (5/3, 11:42 EDT) will be in Scorpio.  This is a good time to take a look at your resources, seeing how you can grow them.  As well as working on any personal transformation and releasing of energy, thoughts, feelings, desires and putting them to rest.
Picture
Sabbat/Esbat Suggestions...Beltane, the astrological version, is also just around the corner as well.  This day is the height of the transition from Spring to Summer.  Everything is coming to fruition and there is beauty and revelry evident in all nature!  Get out there and celebrate!

On a personal note...I can't believe I'm in the home stretch of my pregnancy!  The bigness that is my belly is to that point where it just will not be denied.  And it feels like I am more everything...more tired, more hungry, more anxious...and so on...
Picture
In the studio...With baby so evident I'm feeling that pressure to push creatively.  As you know photography has been on my mind as of late, but also that itch to make something new.  I tend to batch together many of my tasks, which ends up feeling like I'm binging on creativity.  The most pressing obstacle lately has been the rather wet weather.  Since I prefer natural light over any other good photography days can feel in short supply.

To combat that lacking feeling in the creativity department I'll be heading up a custom order this week.  A specially ordered hummingbird's nest necklace.
Picture
I'm also stocking up to give my current peg loom a real test drive by starting a baby rug.  This will involve my lucet as well as I weave together multiple strands to get the bulky heft I need to weave with!
Picture
What I'm talking about...I feel like I've been super quiet on the blog.  Being overly ambitious means my eyes can get bigger than my stomach (quite a feat now given the baby belly!)  Which leads to me bit quite finishing some work in the time allotted.  Although I have some sneaking suspicions as to a factor in that equation that I'm working on dissolving.

What's new...

<![CDATA[New Product Line & Contest!: Tie Me Up, Tie Me Down ~ Not Your Typical Rose Boutonnieres]]>Fri, 17 Apr 2015 14:47:41 GMThttp://www.aradiashand.com/blog/new-product-line-contest-tie-me-up-tie-me-down-not-your-typical-rose-boutonnieres
Picture
Nothing like a little something new to spark a little creative flow!

Even more so, there's a little contest attached and I'd love for you to join in and share your own creativity!...
So here's the story morning glory...
Picture
Ages ago I started making some lovely ribbon roses.  These turned out so lovely that I decided they would definitely make their way into the shop.  Especially for the the Ever After (my wedding line) collection.  I love something a little different so the pretty patterns on the ribbon makes for an interesting ending pattern for the roses, just like the water color cranes from way back when...
Picture
Then I got an interesting request from another artist to see if I could make these lovelies from men's ties...

Hello lightbulb!

As I'm always up for a challenge you know I was down for it and got straight to work collecting ties to try it out.  It took a bit of finageling (working with ties of various materials & thicknesses means the results weren't predictable).  I finally recently finished them all (I had started them but hadn't made up my mind how best to finish them off.)

On to the contest...

Normally I'm a font of ideas and information.  But the task of coming up with 17 unique & fun names according to my typical style was a little daunting.  So I'm opening up my studio doors for your input!
Picture
So now it's time to get your naming on!!!!  Here's how it works...
In the comments below I want your input as to what I should name each of the roses. You're welcome to submit more than one name per rose (it'll up your chances for winning too!), and you don't have to submit a name for each. The person who submits the most accepted rose names wins a special discount (20%) to my shop! (Remember I don't ever do sales, so this is a bit of a big deal!)

***This contest will be open from today till April 30 (2 weeks long!) So don't hesitate to enter!!! Also, be sure to enter your naming submissions on the original post (here or on Facebook) so I see them!***

Some tips for naming...
  • Be Creative! Playing on words, media/literary references, and just plain fun titles are GREAT candidates! (Want some ideas of my style...head over to my shop to see my naming tendencies!)
  • Consider variations! Switching around words or using less than often used words is something I adore as well!
  • Don't stress! If you can only think of one good name, that's still one entry and every little bit counts!Can't wait to see what you come up with!

P.S. Share this post around so more people can get in on the fun!

Thanks for tuning in to this special announcement post.  Make sure you come back to see what other new things are coming to the store!  And if you haven't yet be sure to join my newsletter and connect with me on your favorite social media!

Nothing like stretching your boundaries a little and diving into a social gathering...especially right after a Full Moon in Libra!

Just a few notes on what's up this week including:  personal bits & bobs, some studio updates, and what's new on the blog & in the shop...
On a personal note...Good gracious!  Upon reflection a big deal baby shower might not be the best way to start off the week!  (Okay I will admit to being excited to get more cute baby things because I'm currently "mom-ing it up" all the time, but I'm also a fairly simple and minimalist person as well...)  And the presence of cake & soda in my house is a not so desired side affect however.  (The cake is tasty though so...)
Picture
In the studio...Miraculously I got 19 new pieces shot over the weekend ~ woo!  I'm pretty utterly stoked about this given the weather not cooperating up till now.  Now comes the task of intermingling these things into the listing queue!  (I like to re-arrange it as I add things so you're not waiting forever to see the newest lovelies!)

I also started a small graphic design project for a colleague.  Just a little handout, since I'm techy & artistic it's no big deal for me to do.  I also haven't done much in the way of anything like this in awhile so it's a nice change of pace from my routine creations.
Picture
What I'm talking about...Another Kalends post comes to you to let you know what's up biz wise.  I like to let you in on the skinny and what I'm working on goal wise because let's face it, I'm a sharer! :p  Last Wednesday I also was thinking a lot so I had to share some thoughts that came to me as a result.

What's new...

<![CDATA[WUW?: Critically Thought Of]]>Wed, 01 Apr 2015 14:35:51 GMThttp://www.aradiashand.com/blog/wuw-critically-thought-of
Picture

Nothing like a little bit of critical thinking and idea generating to get the creative juices flowing to clear out the mental funk!

Just a few notes on what's up this week including:  astro insights, personal bits & bobs, some studio updates, and what's new on the blog & in the shop...
Astro Insights...The Full Moon (8:06 am EDT) will be in Libra on Saturday.  Full Moons are great times for releasing energy to clear the path for what you really want.  Under Libra's influence this can mean some critical thinking about the things you keep close to you.  Use Libra's analytical prowess to make clear decisions on the company you keep and state of your home.
Picture
On a personal note...I can't quite say I feel like an orca yet, but that weird waddling feeling is coming on.  Can you say, "end of pregnancy here she comes?!"  On my mind has been the re-design of the kiddos room, since little sister & big brother will be sharing space for awhile I want to make sure the room appeals to them both.  (I lucked out and had a little sister so I didn't have to worry about "weird boy stuff" in my space growing up.)  I'm thinking I'm going to use my love and knowledge of color theory to do some nice tie ins using shades of gray and darker hues for Little Miss, while keeping the brighter hues for Tiny Man.

In the studio...I've finally gotten back in the studio.  Over the weekend I did a little creating on the smallest of my looms.  I'm wanting to incorporate more icord designs since I love the "tentacle" look they give!
Picture
What I'm talking about...Last week I mentioned my intention to get back on track, reflecting on the good points of my small baby shower, and musing about the soon coming weekly doctor visits.

What's new...

I'm pretty sick of the showers and it's only just now April...
Picture
Last Month... (February really, oops)
  • I was really excited about sharing my Utterly Lovely collection since it was Valentine's Day and all.  I also encouraged you to think more about self-love rather than just the typical romantic love people tend to associate with February.
  • I continued my great quest to have everything migrated and updated on the site.
  • I also implemented a new planning strategy for my posts ~ wee!
Picture
So what's happening this month...
  • I'm going to be working more solidly on my product release schedule.  It's going to be seasonally based, but I'll also be throwing in a few holidays (think Mother's & Father's Day...)
  • I'll be continuing the product migration.  Seriously, I'm nearly done, and I'm really excited about it.  For all that's been updated you can check out my On Sale! <3 section for a great deal of it.  (Mind you, not all of the updates will be here, this is just for things that are older stock.)
  • I'll be doing my best to get ahead on some business tasks so I can take maternity leave mid-May!

In the comments below, share with me...
  • How was your Valentine's Day?
  • Did you dive into Spring cleaning in March?
  • What are you looking forward to in April?

As always, thanks for joining me for this Kalends post & make sure you come back for May's!  If you haven't, be sure to 
join the newsletter to get the up to date deets on specials I don't share anywhere else and connect with me on your favorite social media!

<![CDATA[WUW?: Stirring Things Up]]>Wed, 25 Mar 2015 14:14:03 GMThttp://www.aradiashand.com/blog/wuw-stirring-things-up
Picture
Finally getting back on the ball!  Nothing like getting on track to get you pumped up & ready to go!

Just a few notes on what's up this week including:  personal bits & bobs, some studio updates, and what's new on the blog & in the shop...
Picture
Don't mind the frost on the cupcake - had to keep it as fresh as possible for late delivery!
On a personal note...This week has got me back on track.  Last week was hectic with a meetup on Energetic Resonance I hosted via Butterfly Phoenix Coaching.  I also had my baby shower Friday (turn out was pleasant, not too terribly stressful), but I've got a few more favors to hand out this week.  I'm also getting to the point where I *really* don't want to go to the doctor.  Mostly because soon enough the appointments will become more and more frequent and that means lots of re-arranging (I am a workaholic at heart!)
Picture
In the studio...With all the favors done and the weather getting warmer (slowly but surely) I'm bound to have a serious photo shoot day here soon.  Right now I'm brainstorming some display ideas for the tie roses I made up.  Also with some inspiration from Instagram's blog I think I'll be adding another little something to my packaging as a sweet surprise for you.  And I'm not telling, you'll just have to order and see for yourself!

And here's a little something special just for you...even though you weren't able to get to the baby shower (I know you would have come if you could have!)  I thought I'd share some of my favorite things from the making!
What I'm talking about...Still quiet on the blog for the last few weeks.  But what's going on behind the scenes is I'm going to finish up some blog posts and put them up for your reading pleasure.

What's new...

<![CDATA[WUW?: Break the Creative Slump!]]>Wed, 18 Feb 2015 14:16:01 GMThttp://www.aradiashand.com/blog/wuw-break-the-creative-slump
Picture
Image credit: On Creativity by Linus Bohman (Flickr)
What's up this week?  Other than the bad weather and subsequent hiccups (no water, no internet, being snowed in...)

A few Astro Insights, a little Celtic wisdom, personal bits & bobs, studio updates, and a blog/product recap...
Astro Insights...The Sun enters the dreamy sign of Pisces (6:50 pm EST) today.  There is a level of duality, as you exist in the physical world, but also the world of dreams during this influence which will be around till mid-March.  As the great dreamers of the zodiac sometimes it's easy for Pisces to "get lost in the sauce" and not bring those dreams out into reality.  The New Moon (6:47 pm EST), ruler of new beginnings and potential, is Void of Course through the rest of the evening.  This is when the Moon is in between signs and is a good time to step back without exerting too much energy towards a goal.
Picture
A little Celtic wisdom...Today is also the first day of the Celtic Tree Month of Ash.  This energy pairs well with the lunar energy of Aquarius (which shifts with the New Moon today) being idealistic and a free thinker.  Under this influence it's easy to connect with your creativity, so why not make something new or finally work on that project for the next month?

On a personal note...I've decided to dork it up and today (being a Personal Day of 3 for me) I'll be working on some pretty digital art for my baby shower invites.  In the last week I've also completely shifted my office around, hello nesting, according two some Feng Shui principles and it feels a lot more open and productive in here now!

In the studio...My "needs to be photographed" pile is looming ever larger these days.  But since I haven't gotten around to creating my lightbox yet for indoor shots I've been naughty and procrastinating.  With all the creative & idealistic energy that's starting (this is also in line with my Personal Month Number for February too!) I'm thinking that finally getting around to making it will be a good idea.  Especially with the snow that has been gifted by Skadi...

What I'm talking about...Last week I was sharing with you some silly thoughts about the shower & a personal project now completed.

What's new...Not too much up new in the store this past week.  Misplacing a necklace (uhm, yay moving?) and having my CEO Date Monday cramped my style just a bit...but that's okay something is up, et voila...!
