Being surrounded by likeminded women who are kicking butt in their business, building families, & taking care of themselves is magical.

Nobody’s perfect, but getting ambitious, creative, positive energy together to help one another grow is amazing. This was the vibe of our 2019 Member Welcome Event this month at Whim So Doodle. We encouraged members to B.Y.O.V., and as you can see from these photos by Jessica Fredericks Photography, they definitely brought some vision to the table. Cheers to 2019!

I’m so pumped to finally have one of these rad signs! Our events just got more inspiring, babes. This quote from the incomparable Maya Angelou was the perfect way to introduce members to the night (and year!) we had planned for them.

Before we jumped into a live Q&A with mother daughter duo, Jill Orobello & Tayler Rothwell (pictured above), we asked each member to introduce herself, her business, & share what her word for 2019 is. It was inspiring to hear what word each woman had chosen to focus on for this year. Here they are:

Our Q&A with Jill & Tayler was wonderful because you could see the amazing bond they have with one another. Whim So Doodle is a business built on family and community and we’re so grateful to get to hear how the shop came to be, what keeps these two women inspired, & what their advice is for other entrepreneurs.

Rana Tierney of Roohi Photography has found something lovely for her vision board (pictured above). Shout out to Alicia Geigel of Alicia Makes for giving us some pointers on creating a vision board. Then everyone got to work— and by work, I mean sipping bubbly, getting to know one another, and snipping words and images from all kinds of magazines that resonated and could be a good fit for the final piece. I loved seeing each member’s board come together. After everyone had wrapped up, we went around the room again and everyone shared a bit about their vision board and what they see for themselves, their businesses, & their families in 2019.

I had a stroke of inspiration when it came to shooting some fun video content, too! I asked each member to stand in the same spot in the workspace and pose with her board so I could get a quick clip of each babe. When I pieced them together and added some music it was totally magical! I loved being in the room that night because there’s nothing quite like connecting face to face, but getting to experience the event in different ways once the event has taken place is special too. There’s so much story to tell and this video is just one piece.

Have you met Doug, Whim So Doodle’s amazing shop dog? He just turned 5 and he’s as sweet as can be. If you feel licks during a workshop at WSD, that’s just Doug saying hello.
