Good morning and happy Monday.
Isn’t Mercury in retrograde? I can already feel it, how about you?
Last week I found out I didn’t win the Blue Moon label contest. I made it all the way to the top 10 thanks to all of your support! Thanks for taking the time to vote for me. It meant a lot to feel your love. I thought I had a decent shot. So, I did feel hopeful for those few months during the process.
You know what most people’s problem is? Too much money. (You know that I’m only a little bit serious, I hope?) But I’ve been thinking about this lately. That whole necessity is the mother of invention thing, ya know? I believe that. We are ALL more creative when we have to be. But buying has become the new making. And not just this decade but since the early 1900’s and after the industrial revolution. The subsequent plummeting price of goods began to be felt by the masses through places like Sears, Robuck & Co. and continues today with the fast-fashion of H&M.
I feel honored and excited beyond words to be in O Magazine. Oprah has been a hero of mine for a long time. You see, the secret about my book, The Little Spark–30 Ways to Ignite Your Creativity, is that it is way more than a craft book–it is more of a self-discovery book.
I was selected as one of 20 artists during the Rising Moons art challenge to have a label on a bottle of Blue Moon’s Belgian White Ale to celebrate their 20th anniversary. I happen to be a Blue Moon fan already so this was extra fun for me and I am crazy excited to see my art on their bottle.
I was amazed and honored to be featured as an Annapurna Woman over on Carrie-Anne Moss’s gorgeous site, Annapurna Living. Have you seen it? It is a lovely website devoted to sacred motherhood, womanhood, meditation, etc. I see it is a virtual Red Tent–a place for women to go to connect deeply about what matters most.
early to mid 20s – waiting for my ship to come in. (I love you, Ship.)
late 20s – still waiting but kinda forgetting about that ship because my job takes up most of my dreaming time. (If I had some money, I woulda had you by now, Ship. I coulda bought my way to you. Damnit.)
