To establish Buoy's packaging identity, I identified four different products with unique skus and visual markers. The life saver, an extension of the marine theme, employed different colors to communicate wash, shampoo, moisturizer, and serum. A separate icon was created to promote the benefit of the system—a line which neutralizes chlorine deposits and is gentle enough to use more than once a day.
Passion Project is about highlighting the fact that we can only truly achieve the pinnacle of our potential and purpose if we have passion for what we do.
We aim to change the narrative of what true, holistic success is by exploring the journeys of the brave individuals who have decided to pursue their passion.
How did they realise what their passion is? What did/do they have to sacrifice in pursuit of their passion? What are the ongoing challenges? Are they able to monetize their passion to earn a living from it? What lessons are they willing to share?
There is a widespread hunger for a purpose-filled life. We believe when our innate passions are focused in the right direction, only then can we walk in line with our unique purpose.
Join us weekly for a memorable chat with interesting people and some quality music from all over the African continent.
This week, we talked with Erin Holohan (@create_custom_critters) about having a baby in the NICU. This episode is full of love and support as we bring awareness to World Prematurity Day!Erin lives with her family in New York State and thrives on the fast pace that is associated with the area. She has a 2-and-half-year-old daughter and 10-month-old twin boys.
For years, Erin worked at an online fabric shop and sewed as a hobby. As her family has grown her focus has shifted. Her former hobby has developed and grown into her business.
In addition, Erin began a Hearts of Hope Program, which gifts parents a FREE fabric heart for their current NICU miracle.Click the link in our profile to listen to this episode!

Well... I TRIED to take some cute milestone photos today... but then, real life happened. 😂 Anyone that's had a baby knows that those cute Pinterest-y photos are VERY hard to obtain on your own! And today, during the chunk of time I had to attempt it, Marion was just.. HANGRY. 😂
Also, she's already grown out of her going-home onesie that I love so so much, and I just wanted to document it one last time 😢 but I think she was super uncomfortable and annoyed. So that didn't help. But OMG can you believe she's already outgrown it?! We had to buy 3 premie onesies when she was born unexpectedly early, and now she has moved into newborn sizes. 💔❤️ bittersweet, because I'm SO happy and proud that she's growing like a weed... but also oddly sad that she's already not my teeny brand new baby anymore!
We might try again tomorrow for some cuter photos but, in the meantime... Happy THREE WEEKS to our sweet little Marionberry. 🍇💜❤️ She's already got tons of personality, is growing like crazy, and we love her SO MUCH. 😍
Attack. Accuse. Belittle. I shot this 10 years ago! ⠀
Do you know what anxiety feels like? Are you hyper-aware of that feeling? I sure wasn’t until very recently. I’m not even sure I knew what anxiety really meant until recently.⠀
It fascinates me how this passion project cropped up nearly 10 years later, making sense of itself, in the most relatable and timely manner. #denverphotography#anxiety#photoproject#clonemenow#duplicity#passionproject#anxietyattack
Whether just for Christmas or year-round, a good wreath can be the perfect touch to make a house a home.
A wreath restock is one of the many reasons I may have seemingly fallen off the edge of the social media world this week. So many good things going on 🙌. This alder wreath is currently available, but Look for more wreaths in the shop by the end of the weekend!

Four years ago today I stepped off a Southwest flight at SLC Airport. My only plan was to stay the winter and work at Deer Valley. It has been four years and here I am still in Utah and still at Deer Valley. Just goes to show how time can fly when your having fun!
Ok, I'm totally cheating and posting my Halloween picture for my first ever Friday introduction 😬 I'm Tanya (pronounced "Tawnya) I'll admit I'm a bit shy to post my "normal" pic, so I decided that I would hide behind my face paint and wig 😂🤷♀️maybe I'll be brave enough next time! In this pic, I'm the steampunk version of the Cheshire Cat from Alice in Wonderland. .
So here is the person behind the pen...umm sort of 🙈...Some things you may not know about me...
*✋🏻I'm left handed.
*When I was little, I loved to draw dogs and big cats and pretty much all animals. I would then sell my drawings to my classmates in elementary school 😋
*I'm a full time graphic designer.
*I'm a boy momma of two, I have one fur baby and one hubby making me the only girl in my house 💁🏻.
*Ive been doing faux calligraphy for years but just recently found out it was called that 🤷♀️.
*I started doing Brush calligraphy about 7 months ago and have been practicing every day since then. *I opened an Etsy shop in June (something I've been wanting to do for years!).
*I'm from a small coal town in the beautiful mountains of Pennsylvania. *I love to sing and used to be a "guest singer" in my best friends band all through my 20's. (Or maybe she just felt bad for me and let me up on stage with her 😉) I was also a karaoke Junkie!.
Well that's enough for now. .
Eeek, can't believe I'm finally doing a Friday introduction. Please comment with one thing about yourself or just with anything so I don't feel like a putz! 🤗❤️.
Somedays I feel like I may have taken on too much…
Two things I really wanted to achieve in my life were to be able to play the guitar and create a deep and meaningful yoga practice. I have set myself the task of practicing the guitar and practicing yoga every day. I am also saving for a mortgage, working two part time jobs and creating a space online where I can share people’s yoga stories, and share my journey towards living a life that I can be proud of that inflicts as little harm on the world as possible.
Yes, somedays I feel like I have taken on too much.
But I also feel impassioned and empowered. I have made decisions to go after the things that I love and that make me feel happy and well. I fail often, I miss impossible deadlines that I impose on myself and I worry. But I also smile, and laugh, and am happier than I have been in a long time. Having a goal that feels right, and feels good is worth all the effort you put into it. I hope you find something worth striving for.
Our 🖤's keep growing by the hour! Style trailblazer @jakstylevintage is part of our REBEL tribe! Several of her amazing pieces will be available in our Dec.12th Art Auction!
"Each one of my unique capsule launches is specially curated with tender love and care. The mission of each piece is to unleash either the secret flower child or the rock n' roll queen embedded within each and every one of us. These limited edition pieces are tailored exclusively to ode and honour all those specific looks that encompassed the years of the 70's and 80's. These iconic pieces will continue to play an influential role, carrying their essence in the eras of the modern street fashion of today. The natural imperfections of each piece allow the true nature and beauty of these decades to shine through, embodying all the moments they were lived and loved in. Through wearing my pieces, I hope to recreate a moment in time where women embraced their own eclectic style and weren't afraid to speak their own individual truth.
Love and Light,
Today is #WorldPrematurityDay and this is a critical moment in our fight. In 2016, the nation’s preterm birth rate worsened for the first time in eight years. On the latest March of Dimes Premature Birth Report Card to see how the United States has taken a step backward. The current U.S. preterm birth rate is 9.6 percent — that’s a “C” grade amidst widening differences in prematurity rates across races and ethnicities. These Report Card grades give us a snapshot of the work we have yet to do. Please join us and our World Prematurity Network*, a global coalition of consumer and parent groups, to fight for the health of all babies on World Prematurity Day, all month and throughout the year. Join this global movement to save the smallest among us. Post your photos today with #givethemtomorrow
