The photos from the GBK Productions PreOscars Lounge are in!

It has been a wild ride, but things are finally settling down after the Oscar’s gift lounge and winter break. I am just getting back into my art studio, but wanted to share with you the amazing photos that were captured at the event. I am so tickled to once again have my journals  displayed via The Artisan Group at this years invitation-only luxury celebrity gift lounge that was hosted by the GBK Productions this past February. First up, we have a nice photo of up and coming Actor Sam Asghari holding my favorite journal on display. I do hope that he shares some of the TAG goodies with his well know girlfriend Britney Spears. Um, Hello!! If you don’t follow him on Instagram, go check his page out. I promise that you will be in for a treat.

It was a favorite show of mine as I was growing up, so I am kind of fangirling right now.ANNE-MARIE JOHNSON-11 and last but not least, Fredrica Bailey also stopped by. She is an amazing writer and is best known for See You Yesterday, which was a nominee for Best First Feature. How cool is that? FREDRICA BAILEY-4I hope you guys enjoyed the photos as much as I did. It is always an honor to see my handmade journals on such a stage. I am truly honored and blessed. Now, I am off to go create more for you! Be sure to check out my shop section, or my Etsy site, to own a journal for yourself, or to give to that special someone in your life. Until next time, Kristi

Working Hard

working with evie caprel

For the last few months, I have been working with Evie Caprel, business consultant specializing in entrepreneurs. I have to say that I wasn’t sure that I was up for the challenge, to look as closely as I needed to at my small business, The Nib and Quill. Did I really want to dig into the ins and outs, the good and the bad? Was I ready for what I was going to find? Would I be strong enough to face the music to fix my business, in order to achieve the greatness that I knew I wanted and deserved?

I am thrilled to report that together, Evie and I have accomplished so much in this short time. And I have to say it has been easy. Well, not really. But Evie has this special way of listening to you, to really understand where and when you need to dig deep. She’s compassionate and has really helped me break through these invisible walls that I have created.

I have seen new growth in my business since Evie and I have joined forces. Although, I still have a bit of tough work ahead of me, I know that nothing is impossible now. Thanks to the help from Evie. So I encourage you, reach out to Evie on LinkedIn. It will be the best thing you do for yourself and your business.evie
