Did you know that they do prison population projections based on 3rd grad e reading scores? Did you know DC's #illiteracy rate is higher than the national average?

Hundreds of yards of fabric became the backdrop (and excuse) to meet a lot of cool people at Broccoli City Fest @broccolicity 🥦

We are super excited to announce our first house plant care class, Plant Killers Anonymous on June 15 at @rewilddc! In this class, you'll learn...
🌱The principles of basic care for common tropical plants, succulents, and air plants
🌱How our homes affect our success as plant parents (e.g. "It's not you, it's your north-facing window.")
🌱How to identify common problems like over/under watering and pests
🌱The tools and confidence to continue learning more on your own

We’ll devote the last half hour of class to a plant clinic. Bring in your sad, tired house plants and we’ll do our best to help you diagnose the problem. 
Ticket includes 10% off any purchase from @rewilddc. Sign up at the link in our bio.

Success and struggles go hand in hand. The journey is continuous, arduous, and exhausting. There is no peak or plateau, because there is always room to grow. The work is endless until we are ready to leave a legacy for our loved ones. 🖤
•
I say legacy, because that is what my Uncle (who was a dancer) left for our family. He is the true inspiration behind my journey in fitness. Until his last breath he was working with dancers all over the world, and he never stopped doing what he loved. That is my goal. Until my last breath, I will aim to do what I love. This is what I want our children to do as well. 🖤
•
Our time on this earth is uncertain. Do not hesitate to start that journey towards your goals and dreams. What legacy do you want to leave for your family and loved ones? 🖤

Heart Over Crown artist Shyama Kuver describes her work beautifully, saying... 🖤 "My art is an extension of my perspectives on utilizing tenderness and spirituality as a vehicle to connect with others to create radical transformation in the world. Our society is filled with so much hurt and oppression - it's important that we're critical of the structures that exist to perpetuate this pain and also to see that we are our own answer - when we support one another and heal ourselves we are truly being revolutionary. My art strives to remind us of this essence." ✨

Moving from San Francisco, where she created graffiti artwork with friends and as a public + activist artist, she took a big leap of faith to DC. She left a job she loved and her family trusting that things would work out, which turned into sharing what has been most true to since childhood: her art.

Shyama calls herself a "community grown creative." Once she started sharing her art publicly on IG, things took on a momentum of their own. She thanks the @acreativedc community for connecting her with so many DC people during her transition to the city. She now uses paint, graphite, ink, and pixels to depict her world and explore the realities of mind and spirit in ways that come across intriguingly rich and ethereal.

When she joined Femme Fatale last year, she instantly felt like she was part of a bright + beautiful family. As a mural artist for the space, she appreciated the supportive environment and opportunity. She says that being an artist can be very isolating, and her favorite thing about what she does is constantly being propelled forward through the support of community.

Lucky for you, @femmefataledc has extended their pop-up run through July in Columbia Heights! Check out Shyama's @heartovercrown work in person or online for a glimpse into the soul of the universe.

For Fun: @thelinehotel + @eaton.dc - I love the ambiance and it's where I go to feel fancy and in good company. I also love @blackcatdc + @930club for good artistic vibes and music. I love a good dyke bar - so @alohodc is where it's at :)

Join @takefivemeditation guide Jeneen Piccuirro (@jeneenpiccuirro) during the magical energy of the #NewMoon for a very powerful night of intention setting and manifesting.
.
.
The twins (#Gemini) are here bringing both duality and balance to this upcoming New Moon. Flexibility is key to our inner equilbrium and leaning into a natural flow rather than digging our heels in stubbornly will serve us well. Though the push will be to accelerate this month, consider the invitation to slow down and pay close attention as another way of balancing our energies. Our stone this month is Dalmation Jasper, known to be aligned with the sign of Gemini and an excellent aid for our "balancing act" this month. Dalmation Jasper is a bringer of childlike joy so that, in the midst of our work, we remember to smile and play! .
.
Align with us, your Self, and this monthly rhythm, as part of your ultimate self-care package.

I’m really critical of my clothing. I almost always find something to change no matter how many iterations a sample has endured. Combine this with my insecurities regarding my own body and it isn’t always pretty. But, y’all, I fall more and more in love with this skirt the more I wear it. Photo by @anaisabelphotography .

If you don’t have a website and need something cost-effective/almost free, look into Tumblr. It's free to use & with some tweaking + a custom domain (which can range from around $15-25/year) you can have a great interim website.⁣⁣
⁣
⁣
For service based businesses, it’s pretty straight forward. However, if you sell products Tumblr can also be useful.⁣⁣
⁣
⁣
What you’ll need to do is choose a portfolio theme, and preferably one that has the categories/sections stacked on the left hand side. Choosing this type of theme will make navigating your website much easier. Next, you’ll need to create category pages. What category pages do, is that they group posts on your Tumblr that use certain hashtags.⁣⁣
⁣
⁣
Therefore, if you want to create a page that’s just for your earrings, or just for your bracelets you’ll want to make sure each post (i.e. product) that you put on your Tumblr includes that particular hashtag.⁣⁣
⁣
⁣
⁣Once you have that together, what you’ll need to do is integrate a shopping cart plug-in to your site — Snipcart is a commonly used one. With Snipcart & most plug-ins, to allow people to shop your products, you’ll need to add the cart HTML code to each post.⁣⁣
⁣
⁣
Also just as an FYI, Snipcart in particular takes a 2% fee per each sale. ⁣⁣
⁣
⁣
When I first started the Black Creatives Directory, I created the directory through Tumblr by adding some front-end code. Swipe to see what it used to look like!⁣
⁣
⁣
If you’re looking for assistance in creating a Tumblr site, you can book a coaching session with me by clicking the “Book” button in our bio. ⁣⁣
⁣
⁣
....and I also invite you to check out Kindred — an online community + learning platform for black creative entrepreneurs. Membership is $12/mo., and you can click the link in our bio to join!⁣⁣

Success and struggles go hand in hand. The journey is continuous, arduous, and exhausting. There is no peak or plateau, because there is always room to grow. The work is endless until we are ready to leave a legacy for our loved ones. 🖤
•
I say legacy, because that is what my Uncle (who was a dancer) left for our family. He is the true inspiration behind my journey in fitness. Until his last breath he was working with dancers all over the world, and he never stopped doing what he loved. That is my goal. Until my last breath, I will aim to do what I love. This is what I want our children to do as well. 🖤
•
Our time on this earth is uncertain. Do not hesitate to start that journey towards your goals and dreams. What legacy do you want to leave for your family and loved ones? 🖤

🎇 It’s officially festival/summer marketplace season, which as a creative entrepreneur means tons of vending opportunities. As a vendor in an event, the marketing of said event falls predominately on the event coordinator; however, to ensure that you stand out amongst other vendors prior to the actual day, you’ll definitely want to run an IG or FB Ad (not a promoted post or boost) about 3-4 weeks up till the day of the event. This ad should not only be targeted to those who fit your target audience, but are also within a 5-15 mile radius of the event location. Additionally, there should be mentioning within the ad that you’ll be vending at said event.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Doing this will allow you to create a greater sense of anticipation for new (and old) customers who are attending the event or potentially considering it. This is especially helpful when doing large festival events where the options (as a consumer) when it comes to shopping are quite endless. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Also, to add to this, it’s suggested that some of the items that you offer at the event are things that you can’t purchase on your website (or at least aren’t available online till after the event). Nowadays, online shopping is the preferred method for most people, so there needs to be more of a pull than just having to not deal with shipping to reel people in. By offering something that you can only get at that event, it will help make coming to that event worthwhile (especially in respect to old customers).⁣⁣
