The New Crescent Crown Designs

February 10, 2019


Welcome to Crescent Crown Designs Friend!

I have been working on this since November when I came home from the Creative at Heart Conference. Sitting there at my parents home over the Thanksgiving holiday I worked through some exercises and workbooks to find a niche.

I was searching through my notes and worksheets, full of heart and hope, trying to find a string that I could follow. I looked at what I loved, what I was passionate about and what was uniquely me. I thought long and hard and I kept coming back to this idea of story.

It was finding the story, writing the story, sharing the story and celebrating the story. I knew I had always loved to write, it was so much a part of me that I hadn’t even thought about it relating to my business.  

At the end of 2017, while I was working on my business, I had also written the first draft of a novel. Clearly, I have a problem with sitting idle for too long. I have always had a passion for writing, but I never thought the two passions would intermingle, I thought they would more so co-exist in my life.

No matter where I looked, this theme of writers, authors and storytellers kept popping back into my head. I was one of them, I knew the struggles, I was part of the communities and I was passionate about watching people succeed in this space.

It was an ah-ha moment at my parent’s dining room table with notebooks and colored pens spread out before me. After I wrote it down the ideas came flooding out, the products, the designs, the blog posts, the people I could connect with and the community I could create.

I had my niche, but I wanted to grow slow. I wanted to really get it right, to build a site I was proud of, to choose quality. I did the research, I sent out surveys and I really sat with all of the ideas that were running around in my head.

I could not be more excited to share with you the fruits of my labor. I can’t wait to release the products and to put out content that can help writers with their craft and with their lives.

I’m Kristen and I’m an artist and a writer. I hope you come to Crescent Crown Designs to feel motivated, to learn, to celebrate your accomplishments and to fill your writing well. I can’t wait to cheer you on every step of the way!

Just remember, all it takes to be a writer is to write.

Powersheet Party: October Recap & November Goals
Powersheet Party: October Recap & November Goals

November 08, 2019

My box of happy came in the mail a few weeks ago, with my NEW 2020 Powersheets and a few other goodies. It’s taken a lot for me not to crack them open and start planning for the new year, but I know I still have work to be done here in 2019. 

Truly, I’m starting this blog post series to hold myself more accountable. I don’t think I have used the Powersheets quite as effectively in 2019 as I would have liked. I’m hoping putting them here motivates me to get more done, to be more honest and to encourage you to set goals as well. Now, let’s get to it!

Cozy Fall Self-Care Night
4 Things for a Cozy Fall Self-Care Night at Home

October 26, 2019

The nights are coming faster as the sun dips down behind the treeline. The air is becoming colder, wind blowing fallen leaves on the ground. You can smell the fall, perhaps it smells like pumpkin spice lattes to you. To me, it smells like hot chocolate and cinnamon.
After a long week working, you get home (or shut down your laptop) on Friday and want to crash. Whether you plan on working more on the weekend (hello everyone that works in the wedding industry) or you have two days of peace ahead of you, taking a moment for yourself is important.

Let me introduce you to my favorite fall self-care evening. Use this as an excuse to treat yourself, set aside some time next week for yourself. Check out these four things you need for a cozy fall self-care night at home!
