Hey, Ambitious Fam! Today is the day! Ambitiously You is officially up and running on Etsy. I have been dreaming up a product to launch for so long and I am so thrilled to see it come to fruition. I’m not sure if you recall, but the process of learning digital art and opening up this shop actually helps me cross something off of my 30 Before 30 Bucket List! It felt fitting to launch the shop during my favorite month of the year and on my birthday weekend to make the release extra special.
In honor of the shop launching, I wanted to share a little more about its significance as well as provide a special discount code eligible for launch weekend!
What is Ambitiously You?
Ambitiously You is an Etsy shop that features hand-drawn digital lettering and designs meant to encourage you to be Ambitiously You! I believe in harnessing the power of words through positive phrases and affirmations to help manifest the life of your dreams. Why? Because in a world filled with negative voices, yours shouldn’t be one of them. The way you speak and treat yourself matters. Reach for your Ambitiously You products when you need a little reminder 🙂
The first drop will include inspirational mugs, logo crewnecks, and affirmation crewnecks! Follow me on Instagram @shopambitiouslyyou to stay up to date about new product releases and motivational content!
Behind the Logo
I have always felt a strong connection to the moon. For me, it symbolizes the natural ebb and flow of life. It serves as a reminder that though there are different phases and changes in life, each phase contains its own beauty. It centers me and fills me with hope. I also link the moon to ambition. One of my favorite quotes is to “shoot for the moon, even if you miss you’ll land among the stars,” because it acknowledges that ambition can take you to beautiful places, even if it’s not the place you expect. It also helps soothe my type 3 achiever energy because if ya know ya know. I also had to add in a splash of pink, of course!
One of my favorite parts of my morning ritual is picking out which mug I want to use. It helps set the tone for the day and is typically a reflection of my mood (or the mood that I want to have). For example, when I’m feeling down or it is a gloomy day, I reach from my Chip mug. If I know that it’s going to be a particularly challenging day, I gravitate towards a mug with encouraging words. I want to share that ritual with the world by providing mugs that give you a pep talk when you need it and uplifts your spirits first thing in the morning.
More often than not, and especially during the pandemic, you will find me in a crewneck sweatshirt. I have quite the collection to keep me comfortable throughout this work-from-home period. Currently, I love the look of minimalistic designs and embroidered words of encouragement. This first Ambitiously You drop features the logo design and a few affirmations to hold close to your heart.
I would like to dedicate the launch of Ambitiously You to a few special people in my life:
To Sara, who encouraged me through my doubts and workshopped ideas with me from the beginning. Your support has been invaluable.
To Kimmy, my cheerleader of a best friend who is always there to listen and support me no matter what new thing I add to my plate.
To my sister, Christal, who listened to me talk about the launch of Ambitiously You incessantly. You believed that I could pull it off and supported my desire to share my art (and spread the word to everyone else too haha).
To my mom for always being a supporter of my ventures and for helping me get things off the ground when I needed it. You taught me that I can do anything that I put my mind to. Thank you.
To me. For taking the leap even though it terrified me. For pushing past the fear of imperfection. For just starting. You are enough. I am enough.
