Graphic Design DIY Resource

1


1 per unit - Virtual OK

I'm sharing this resource for you, right here, right now. If this gives you value; send me an honor proposal of an amount of Simbi within your budget. Yup, I trust you. If this is NEW to you or this resource helps you out, send me some thank you Simbi, honor system style. I'm asking for only 1 Simbi. You can send me 1... or more based on the value it provides you and your budget. Thanks!

Sometimes you don't know what you don't know. And having a new resource opens up a whole new world. Canva was like that for me.

www.canva.com

Canva is easy to use. Get click happy and try stuff. I find it to be very intuitive, free software. There are a ton of videos out there to teach you how to use Canva as well. Search YouTube for, "How to use Canva." Look for the most recent videos. You'll be blown away with what you can do!

Enjoy!

I used to hire Fiver.com to make my graphics and found it super frustrating to communicate with someone in Indonesia or Jamaica. I would pay my $5 and not be satisfied with the result. Then I'd pay another $5, and the same thing would happen. I tried a few times and gave up. Then, I tried some U.S. graphic designers for more money than I felt comfortable paying but didn't see any other solutions, and the same thing happened. I still didn't love the result. The graphic designer would feel the deal was done, and I still didn't have a graphic that made me happy. Sigh.

Finally, I learned how I could make cool stuff for my website, social media, and emails for free or for less than I was paying the guys at Fiverr.com ($5). Hallelujah!

The software is free to use (some elements $1 each) or upload your photos.

Pssst!!! See my service, "Where to get Free Stock Photos" for ideas of where to get photos for free. (Info offered up freely. If it's of value to you send me an honor payment of Simbi. If you don't have the budget or already know about this resource, scroll on by.)

Items you can easily make with Canva.

Training & Qualifications


I am a small business entrepreneur wearing the many hats needed to run a successful business.

I've been fulfilling my own graphic design needs for a couple of years. It's so much easier than trying to communicate back and forth with a designer that doesn't "get" what you're looking for.

Availability & Preferences


Resource pre-provided. Send me Simbi if it's of value to you at your convenience.

Trading Preference: I prefer being paid in simbi

About Abigail Thurston

Hello! My passion is helping people as an intuitive, co-creative healer and kinesiologist. I'm also the creator of "The Empath Energy Experiment." I live a holistic lifestyle and have a professi...onal practice as a heart-based healer, helping women make room for more joy through releasing painful feelings with body-based and energy-based techniques. My life hasn't always been easy or happy. I've experienced a lot of grief, loss, and made a few big mistakes including a wasband (former husband). I joined a cult religion. My Father and a surrogate Dad both died from heart attacks. Two of my closest friends took their own lives. I joke that in this life, I opted for the advanced courses in family dysfunction. My family practices shunning and ignoring and I'm on the outs. Despite these past tumultuous events, I'm mostly happy these days. I strive each day to live in my truth and reach for more joy. My friends say... I'm the least judgmental person they know. (How can I judge when I've been through so much?) They also say... I'm a very peaceful person to be around and feel calmer from being near me. I hear this all the time, so I'm just repeating what I hear. LOL! I'm a Maine native, now residing in the beautiful upper Hudson Valley of New York with my husband and furry feline kids. I love soul connections and being part of giving tribes of people. I value friendship, community, and authenticity. You could say I'm also a healer-preneur. I've learned how to complete my own techie chores, developing my websites, doing my marketing and SEO work for my business. These are the surprising, modern life skills one acquires when they choose to be self-employed. Our modern world. ;) In my downtime from working with clients where I provide healing support; I offer crazy balloon animals and arches and am beginning to flip houses as a real estate investor. My exciting life! show more
