The last couple weeks I’ve been on a journey of making my self happy, practising what I preach, making the most of each day, and following things that give me joy. I can tell you from the bottom of my heart, it has made a big difference. The last couple months of 2016 I was totally drained, didn’t feel creative, felt a bit lost like ‘what am I doing and why‘.

So, I made a change. I started putting  myself first
and really doing WHAT I WANT.

It’s easy to get side tracked from your goals, over worked, under stimulated. The thing is, you can totally turn that around any singe day, at any time. You’re in control of your happiness. You’re the director of the movie that is your life. You always have a choice.


2009 BLOG POST

Years ago (2008-09) when I wanted people to remember me and my blog I made these little stickers on white Avery labels after work (at an IT company). I didn’t have $$ for real stickers, so I had to be creative.

They had a strip of photos I took of myself (now called selfies) and my Twitter @casiestewart with my URL casiestewart.com.

While most people will take your business card and never follow up, this is not the case with stickers. I found that people would go to my blog the day after a fun party where I stuck my sticker on them, their sweater, conference badge, and leave a comment, or tweet me it was nice to meet.

The first round of ACTUAL real stickers I made were from StickerYou when a friend worked there. They were heart shaped photos of me with a painting in the background and my Twitter handle.

This month I was invited to create a Mantra Box of stickers to keep me motivated. WELL, I went and ordered a whole bunch. So many that I ended up spending more than the gift code they sent!

Over the last week I’ve mailed out a bunch of hand written letters to long time blog followers, old and new friends, with pieces from my Mantra Box. I already knew the quality of stickers and I can say I am so impressed with this batch. I really love them.


Use code CASIESTICKWITHIT17 to order some for yourself.


The price point is affordable, here’s a screenshot from part of my order. I’m surprised how many stickers I got. I also ordered clear stickers of my signature (for windows/everything) and signature tattoos. Yay!


I have a bunch so if you want some LMK.

Last nights @meetDITTO event was really great. I was super tired before getting there, ate a sub and felt  gross, the day was long and busy. On my way to the event I picked up a card for Natalie (organizer) as a thank you and bought her some patches for her jacket (FIMINIST/BOSS WITCH).

Got a last minute coffee before it stared and bought one for Carolyn too. HUGE thanks to Nataliegh and Avery for bringing us all together to learn and celebrate.

Stories the other women shared were so inspiring. Gave me so much energy. Don’t forget…

We’re all just out here hustling and making things up as we go. Nobody knows wtf they are doing. 


I talked to a fab young woman who’s been following the ol’ bloggy since 2009. How cool is that? She was telling me how she wants to create but wants also it to be perfect, so she hasn’t been making things. I told her she’ll wait forever with that attitude. Don’t wait.

You need to create in order to make mistakes, to learn.
You have to work hard to get to the next level.

So, make as much shit as you can and do it fast. Learn faster.

Don’t sit there tinkering, put your hands together and make something!

weare1188, cereal killers, cereal, national cereal day

Got an email last week about National Cereal Day and I know the 1188 dudes love cereal. So, I asked the agency to send a bunch of boxes and I would post about it in exchange.

Welllllllll, the 1188 crew loved the idea so much we made cereal typography art. Jeff Woo with the typography skills! 


The office ‘free blog food’ rule is you have to let me take a photo of it. Here’s a few bowls! I want (Jeff) to make more stuff like this. It was fun and I love sharing with everyone bc like who doesn’t love cereal/snacks? Thanks Kellogg’s & Strategic Objectives!

Thankful for the 1188 team because I don’t know if I would have had an idea this great let alone the skills/patience. 👍🏽


 The office is ALWAYS open for snacks so feel free to send if you would like us to try! 😜
