The Best, Most Versatile Travel Blanket

July 24, 2018

My family of 5 just returned from a holiday to visit family & explore in London. As I mentioned on Instagram, we brought along several kantha throws.

I am, of course, utterly biased; AND, I know it is a huge privilege to have multiple throws in my own personal stash for hauling around the world. But, I wanted to share some pics and stories about how a kantha throw is the best travel blanket in the world!


(I'm not the only one who thinks so: 1, 2, 3) And, If YOU have had a travel experience with your kantha, share it with my by email, tagging @dignifysj in an instagram photo or commenting below.

A Day in the Life of my Solo Business

October 06, 2015

Last week, I had the opportunity to take over an instagram account for One Woman Shop, a resource hub & community for women building their solo businesses. I "carried the #onewomanshopbaton" and spent the day posting photos of what it looked like to work my small business. Technically, I am not a one woman shop, as I wouldn't be able to do dignify without my husband (whom we have, at times, referred to as the "Chief of Everything I Don't Want to Do"), and a growing community of help & support. Nonetheless, I thought I would share with you what a day in the life is like for me!

[There are echoes here of another post I did once: Behind the Scenes Photographing Many, Many Kantha Blankets]



I start almost every weekday with a super early writing sesh: 5:30 wakeup and at the desk by 5:45. It sounds bananas, I know! But, I beat my 3 kids out of bed and get some solid, uninterrupted and undistracted time until 7:30. I started this as an experiment in September, inspired by @seanwes, and I'm not looking back. For me, it's been just what I needed: dedicated time to write and focus before the emails and social media and personal needs of the day stay tumbling in.

[On another version of this photo, I included a little known fact about me: I use my right index finger for the space bar when I type. So ridiculous. Also, does every 31-year old's hands look this old? I need to take better care of myself...]


At 7:30, I stop working to come up from our home office and help herd the cats. We only have one daughter in full-time school (grade 1), but it starts at 8:05, and for a night owl (her), that's rough!

I love taking this break to eat, get a coffee (which I don't make at 5:30am... see previous post!), and take the 10 minute round-trip walk to school.@shawnblanc offered some great advice about staying focused: when he starts to wane or be distracted, he just steps away. A walk, a coffee break, a change of pace/scene for a few minutes to give himself an earnest break, instead of pressing through with half attention.

 

In true one-woman fashion, I do a bit (a lot!) of everything: writing, tech stuff, packaging, photography, importing, accounting (rarely!), marketing, social media, etc. etc.

Fortunately, my husband has taken over a lot of the order fulfillment, but I still handwrite the cards and help out. So, so not how I envisioned my life -- the dream of owning/running an online retail business was never even on my radar! But it sure is fun now!
