Thank You & Goodbye

I have really enjoyed blogging and posting on Everyday Inspired, but the time has come for me to move on and grow my business in new ways.

Everyday Inspired has been my baby for 5 years and I have posted over 1500 posts. I've enjoyed sharing new ideas, ways to be inspired, and things that have been happening in my business. This blog was my job for many years.

I have recently struggled with blogging as you well know, by the lack of posts lately. It can be time consuming and coming up with content that was useful and helpful was challenging.

So with tears in my eyes this will be my last post on Everyday Inspired.

I have enjoyed sharing with each and everyone of you, reading all your blogs, and getting to know everyone in the blogging community. All of you are why I posted for so many years.

It's not a forever goodbye, I will visit your blogs from time to time and see you on social media. I will also keep Everyday Inspired live, so if you ever need any motivation or inspirations you can stop by and read your favorite post.

This year I'm on a mission to grow my jewelry design business. I am creating two new lines of jewelry, and I am going to spend a lot more time on the wholesale side of my business. I am also really excited about a new project partnering up with a local artist to start a mastermind program in the Chicago area.

I have already taken the first step in expanding my business by setting up a brand new website. Check it out and tell me what you think.


I am showcasing all three of my collections and a blog that I will post to once a week. So if you would like to keep up with what is happening with me and my business I hope that you will bookmark it and follow along. You can check out the blog at:

  1. Sad to see you go but I do wish you the best of luck with all of your endeavours!

    1. Thank JoJo, I wish you the best. Keep on creating and sharing all your cool ideas with the world :)

  2. Wow! I'm sorry to see you go, but wish you tons of luck with growing your business. You'll be great! I'll sign up for the newsletter so I can see your latest work. :-)

  3. It's mostly because of Everyday Inspired that I came to get to know you and Additions Style. You gave me inspiration with each Motivational Monday post, even when I didn't have the time to leave a blog comment.

    I had noticed a decrease in posts here, but I have been on and off with blogging this past year as well and haven't been visiting quite as often as I would have liked. While I am super sad to see you leave this blog behind, I'm very glad you'll be keeping it live - there's so much good content here! And I'm SO incredibly excited for you as you start a new adventure with your business. I've been keeping up with you via Instagram, and I will definitely follow you to WeAreHardware as well. You will always be an inspiration, no matter where you are on the net!

    1. Oh! I thought it was we are hardware. Now, after clicking, I see it says Wear Hardware. lol
      It's a beautiful site, Valerie. I love the look and feel of it. =0)

    2. Thank you so much Kim! Thanks for checking out my website as well. I am glad you will be staying in touch, and following on Instagram.

  4. I wish you much success with growing your business and all your endeavors. I've enjoyed your blog and the many tips and motivations you were so good at providing. I'll miss coming here, but glad I can find you in so many other places! Good luck, Valerie :)

    1. Thank you so much Annette! I will look for you on social media.

  5. Hi Valerie, I will be sad to see your blog go but I'm excited for you and your new business ventures! The new site looks great! I know I will be seeing you around in social media. :)

  6. Wishing you the best in your journey ahead. WearHardware is such a perfect name for your new site!
