Love It! Hate It!

I’m late this week but I know several people that really like this column so I decided not to skip it this week!   Love It! 1. White Oak Animal Hospital! –  I want to give a big shout out to our wonderful vets at WOAH!  We switched to them last year when Maxie was…

Love It! Hate It!

This year Mother’s Day meant much more to me then in the past and so I thought it would make it the topic of this weeks Love It! Hate It! column.  I know I said I’d keep the baby posts to twice a month but this isn’t really a baby post, there is a little…

Love It! Hate It!

Oh my I can’t believe it has been two months since my last Love It! Hate It! post.  I’m just gonna blame it on being lax during my first trimester and shipping the hubby off for six months!  Life is starting to settle down again thank God and I’m jumping back on the blogging bandwagon….

    I thought you looked familiar when I saw you in my friends’ pictures from WPPI and just now realized it’s because I’ve been all over your blog! Sad I didn’t get to meet you in person, maybe next time! And I’d love as tips on how to go about creating a workflow board. This has been on my to do list for awhile, and I’m a little intimidated on how to go about making it!

    Hi Lydia! So funny that you recognized me! We should definitely try to meet up next time. For the workflow board I brainstormed all the steps to my process from when the client signs the contract to the final delivery of their wedding products. Most of my tasks are general like send thank you card after booking and edit wedding photos. I purposely left a few blank spots on the bottom to add anything I forgot or need to add to my workflow. I used a template from a friend but you can google some great templates too. Then I contacted my local print shop and they were able to do it on a whiteboard which is awesome!!! I had a particular frame I wanted it to fit so working with the local print shop allowed me to customize it perfectly! I hoped that helps with getting your workflow board setup!!
