I'm all about saving you time behind the screen and helping you live out more hope-filled, purposeful stories.
Making time for a business, blog and relationships is tough. You take photos, write content, and manage schedules. Your jobs might also include juggling meals, cleaning, finances, posts and projects. Managing so much can start to make you feel like you'll always be behind. But a little planning and helpful tools can go a long way. It also helps to know you have a friend that gets it and is cheering you on! That's where I come in.
I'm Laurie, a 30-year-old designer, wife, and mom from the Midwest.
When I first started my own design business (previously called Beauty Divine Design) in 2011, I was blogging, marketing products and trying to connect on social media all while helping run a youth ministry, keep my house clean and raise a toddler with autism. Since then we've moved twice and added two more babies to our family. So I'm no stranger to the tension that comes with being in charge of a lot of things. I get it: work + life can be stressful even if you love every part of it. My purpose is to help us add a little more focus and balance.
About The Design Shop
All products in the shop are meant to give you purpose and a little extra space to breathe. You can find starter designs in the form of cards, albums, branding materials. These are all pre-designed files, so you can download them, easily make any changes you want in Photoshop and send them off to print. Your clients receive a high-quality professional design without you needing to spend hours behind the screen. I also offer planning worksheets to give you more focus and help you better manage your time.
About The Blog
This is where I share ideas for living creatively, staying motivated, and planning it all out. I've had to let God teach me how to make things work and how to sometimes just let it be messy. (Note: This also applies to hair. Most days for me = hat or messy bun. Sometimes both! My poor husband.)
