Today is a very exciting day at DGI because our NEW WEBSITE IS FINALLY LIVE!!!! And with that, we're officially launching our new logo, seen here. ⠀
Our team grew fast these past two years, and the Devon Grace logo wasn't doing it for me anymore. Now that we've truly become a team, it's not just me that clients get to work with and that's what makes our projects and process so incredible. I truly believe that when it comes to design, more heads are better than one. Additionally, designers should be designing, not purchasing and managing the business details behind the scenes, so our team has dedicated people for those roles as well. Designers get to design, and the other parts of the process get done right. Our new DGI logo is an elegant graduate of the former one, and takes the focus off of me, celebrating our team as a whole instead. I am so proud of what this company has become in such a short time, and couldn't be more thrilled to share it with the most amazing 7 other people 😊⠀
Since we decided to change the logo, we knew we needed to step up our website game as well, and that's when @dacyknight of @nobuko.studio came to our rescue. Dacy reworked our website to make it more clear to navigate, and most importantly she made it look incredible. We couldn't be more thrilled with how it turned out, and really enjoyed the entire process working with her.⠀
I hope you guys take a minute to check out the new site! We've launched a new services page that explains our process and what makes us unique, and are introducing each member of DGI on our team page! We'll be doing some fun intros here on insta over the next few weeks as well.⠀
Have a great Tuesday!!⠀

Proof you can do so much when you work as a team. I love these boss babes and the community we have created. Since we have opened in November we have been able to support over 30 different women artists in Austin with 100% of sales going back to them!
In two days we take @ladysmithsofatx on the road to Tucson, Arizona for the largest gem and jewelry show in the world. Are we crazy? Probably lol But in doing this 15 other amazing artists have the opportunity for their work to be seen at such a caliber show. It’s about supporting one another, working together and accomplishing great things as sisters. That’s the power of women y’all!

When you get so many #amazonprime deliveries, you gotta warn the #delivery person beforehand!

I don't think you'll be surprised when I say that YouTube isn't going anywhere. There are new channels popping up every minute of the day and viewers can't get enough.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But on a platform with so many eager to consume content, is it as simple as posting content to get views?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In other words, if you build it, will they come? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The short answer is... nope!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
YouTube isn't as simple as posting and going on your merry way but the good news is that it's not the crazy complicated process you might think it is. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you're ready to use YouTube to get MORE leads to your business (which means more money!), you're going to want to head to the link in my bio to grab my Video Strategy Starter Kit. This FREE kit is going to help you get started the right way or correct the path you're already on.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You're going to get my complete roadmap, the exact script template I use for my videos, and more to help you create content that will leave people excited for more.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What are you still doing here? Go grab it now and let's grow that channel!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
One of the things I love most about Instagram is the wonderful support from the artistic community and the constant encouragement for small businesses! Together, we have teamed up to bring you an online craft fair that you can browse from the comfort of your own couch in your pj pants! ❤️

It's all about our pride and joy for the #qpbestyearever2020 today...our sewing machines! ❤️
For many years now I have loved Berninas, and I'm the proud owner of a B550QE. I'm also very lucky in that I've done some work with @berninauk and they have loaned me the B445 QE to play with! There's so many features that I love that make quilting such a dream. The automatic thread cutter is just AMAZING! And I love the touch screen, allowing me to effortlessly choose my settings. I also love that the bobbin holds 70% more bobbin thread than earlier models, so I don't have to change it very often which is wonderful! It's funny isn't it how all these little things really help to create a smooth sewing experience. ❤️ I'm looking foward to hearing your sewing machine stories today, and what you love most about your machine! ❤️

This is going to be the back of a cushion - just simple double crochet stitches (sc if you use US terms 🙂) but they look lovely in this yarn (Women’s Institute Soft & Smooth aran) Hopefully I’ll get the cushion made up later then I’ll share a pic of the front 🙌
Have a good day! 💕🌟💕🌟
Things I see at work.
When covers & spines break into pieces, restorers need to take them out and give them a new shell.
The content matters more than the outside, right? 😊

Hi friends 💕💕💕
I wore this to work today (this is an old picture because I didnt feel like taking a fresh picture today 😂. I've been at work a full week now. And I'm still super happy! I still need some time to adjust as i fall asleep every afternoon around 4ish 😂 but I'm getting there. Added bonus is that the structure working gives me also gives me more energy. And with more I mean "who even am I" 😂. I'm taking the kids outside again. And I'm cooking. And planning. And doing things. All in all super pleased and super thankful. And I turn down the heat in my office every day so i can wear all the knits 😏. Also. This is one od my first handdyed garments with yarn from @spingodin and @treliz_colorispower and it's stull going strong. Should have thought it through better and used the same yarnweight. But then again 3 years ago I had ZERO clue and I still wear it so its all good 😂😂😂
Anyway. I've been quiet on here because you know, working and napping. But how have you been? If you have the time would you tell me something funny/positive/happy thay happened to you this week? Big or small? I love reading your comments 💕 or dm me💃🏻
Touched down from spending a flying weekend visit in Granada, Spain, and it was such a treat! I forget how much wider perspective can happen when you see somewhere new, get some sun on your face and shift from your everyday environment even just for a couple of days. @krupashikotra and I visited a lovely retreat venue where we're planning to host an #Unplugged retreat later this year (watch this space!) And naturally we had sangria and olives at every beautiful viewpoint stop we could find in between - because who actually said you can't mix business with pleasure?
We're cooking up all kinds of lovely things to share, and we're hosting a lovely magical manifesting session this Sunday at #Unplugged fresh with new ideas for bringing your dreams to life - we can't wait to share it!
Head over to my bio link to book your spot! ✨✨

One of the most unique things about handmade creations is the slight differences in each piece. I follow the same process each time I make a Positivity Blob and yet it’s always a new expression and personality that evolves in my hands as I work! 😍
I hope that the differences between each one seem to others as they seem to me, a reflection of uniqueness and a special piece of art meant for just the right individual who feels drawn towards it.❤️
Loving working on this little Valentines Collection! I was going to do mini reveals throughout the week, but I think I’ll save the final two additions and do a reveal with all of them together later on, but tune in tomorrow for something a little special coming in the meantime before the next restock! 🙌🏼

My friend challenged me to do #toonme 😅 It was hard...Haha. I picked a photo that had food so at least I could draw that part hehe. I don’t draw people that often and when I do it’s very cartoonish. So trying to draw half of this photo was a challenge for me—especially the face because I usually give people two dots for eyes and a tiny smile for the mouth. But it was fun! Thank you @elisebyun for challenging me to try something new!
