Vibes (free printables)

So I drew this design the other day after a nice night out with my friend Kate.

We were having dinner and that led to ice cream, but throughout the night, I kept giving the Shaka sign. The sign is typically given as a form of “hello” or “goodbye” or “hang loose” in Hawaiian or surf culture, but lately it has been an all encompassing flourish, good or bad.

Examples:
“I am so excited for this ice cream” ::insert excited, silly double handed shaka::
“Oh, your boyfriend is a selfish jerk?” ::insert eye roll + shaka::

I like that the sign is ambiguous, open for interpretation. That is why the word “vibes” was added. Positive vibes or negative vibes, it is all up to you. 🙂 ::insert shaka here::

Please enjoy these free printables and let me know if you use them anywhere, I wanna see! ❤

Crybaby Bingo (free printables)

I have been wanting to do a Crybaby Bingo card for the longest time and I finally did it!!!

I think that this would be kind of fun to play at a meet up or something like that in the future, just to kind of have a fun way of opening up the floor to talk about some stuff that we’ve cried about, some serious and some not.

For now though, I’m gonna post it here in case any of you wanna play! If you do play, be sure and repost it and tag us @thecrybabyclub or #thecrybabyclub #crybabybingo so I can see!!!

 

What would your crybaby bingo square say??

Heart Eyes – Wet

“It’s the hardest thing that I’ve ever done
To love somebody and still run”

— Still Run, 2018

Recently, I decided to try to step into new things, musically anyway. I have this really annoying thing about me that when people suggest things to me (i.e. music, books, website, t.v. shows etc.) I ignore them as hard as possible. I do not do this on purpose, I promise! I am not just a jerk that hates her friends, at least I don’t think I am. I just like the things that I like and am reluctant to change, plus I have been burned too many times (I am looking at you, Thor Ragnarok).

I even have to trick myself into liking new things. For example, everyone kept telling me about The Last Podcast on the Left. “OMG you’ll love it, they’re so funny, smart and great!” I hard passed on this podcast for months before finally, I was caught up on all the podcasts I like and literally needed something new. So, I started listening to LPOTL as I fell asleep or when I was in the bath (so I couldn’t turn it off or change it). Why am I like this? I wish I could tell you. Long story short though, LPOTL is my new favorite podcast, hands down.

Anyway, someone lovingly suggested this band to me before, but it didn’t stick. Shocking, I know. But then…thanks to the horrible desk job I worked for a few months + iTunes “For You” playlist based on what I always listen to… I discovered Wet.

The timing couldn’t have been better either, because their new album dropped soon after, so I had tons of things to listen to and fall in love with. So, if you are not like me, and you actually enjoy people suggesting new things to you, please check this band out. They are worth a listen, their lyrics are great, the music is catchy, and the vocals = swoon city.

Shout Outs for All

We know life can be hard, and maybe it’s been tough lately, but here at The Crybaby Club, we know that one of the best ways to combat a rainy day is to lift other people out of the puddles!

One of our number one missions here is to do just that… support, lift and love one another. As a woman, I have been told my entire life that other women specifically are my competition. This is such a lie, and we need to make sure that our future generations are not told the same BS. Community over competition, always.

Lovely artwork by the amazing lovies over at The Coven Girl Gang

It’s so important for us to recognize and celebrate other women and humans in our lives who are doing the things. Whether it’s through starting a small business, running a 5K or just getting out of bed in the morning- because let’s be honest, some days that is the bravest thing we do. Let’s take a moment to celebrate an important folks in our life.

Let’s lift each other up!

Heart Eyes – Design

In this series, I want to take time out to showcase artwork, creatives, brands, businesses, musicians and more that inspire the crap out of me. Not only because it is fun, but because it can also be inspiring for those not so creative ruts we tend to fall in from time to time.

Here is what has my heart pounding this month…

Loving this kind-hearted creative’s colorful, gentle, powerful aesthetic. her incredible pieces of art are full of sentiments that we could all use a little more of.
