Give yourself grace

InspirationChristine BretonComment

Today I'm sharing some lessons that I've learned from avidly listening to the Jess Lively Podcast. This girl is seriously amazing, her guests are phenomenal and I always get some profound and helpful advice and tips when I listen to her podcasts. The lesson to give myself and my business patience and grace to grow at the pace that it needs to has stuck with me since I listened to the Jess Lively episode with Becky Murphy.

You should definitely give this podcast a listen if you haven't already. It's really amazing, I promise you will learn so much from each and every episode. If you do, let me know! And let Jess Lively know that LaFabère sent you. 

To celebrate some amazing projects that are on the LaFabère horizon, I'm sharing this free printable with you guys! If you would like to print these words and have them in your home, office, powder room, wherever! Just send me an email and I'll be happy to send it over to you! 

Happy International Women's Day!

happy International Women's day from LaFab�

Happy International Women's Day! Hopefully you are as lucky as I am to be surrounded by amazing, strong, supportive and encouraging women as I am. It's these women in my life who encourage me and inspire me to keep working on my passion project and to pursue my personal and career goals. It takes a tribe of women to support and encourage each other to live the lives we were meant to, with intention and integrity, and to appreciate the positive things that come our way, and to build each other up during challenging times, whatever they may be.

I hope that today you take the time to reach out and to thank the women who are part of your tribe, and let them know how much they mean to you. I know I will be! 


Engage Ottawa Recap

Wedding, InspirationChristine BretonComment

I had the honour of attending the Engage Ottawa show this year, and as usual, the team at The Design Co. did not disappoint! Since most of my abstract paintings are inspired by beautifully crafted floral arrangements, I was in the perfect place and completely surrounded by amazing florals and table scapes. It was so much fun getting to chat with lovely brides and grooms about my work, and how I use the paintings in my wedding invitation and wedding vow print designs. 

Some of the lovely brides also asked if I would go paint at their wedding! It would be so fun to go to peoples weddings and to do what I love! If you're looking for an abstract Live Artist in Ottawa, I would love to hear from you!
