Inspiration Market

I am delighted and filled with anticipation as I prepare for the Inspiration Market that is coming up THIS Sunday, January 28! Here is the scoop about this unique event. . .

What is the Inspiration Market?
The Inspiration Market is an event I created to share my artistic and creative process with people who are curious about what I do.  It's a great chance to put some color and energy back into your life and get out of the house.  Forget it's winter in Ohio for just a few hours!

What will we do?
You will have a front row seat to see some of the newest creations I've made.  You will have time to make a bit of inspiration for yourself or someone else.  There will be tea and cocoa.  If you see something you love you will have time to shop.  You will also learn about creative offerings of workshops and classes that will be held over the next few months.  The afternoon will wrap up with a yoga nidra for anyone who wants to participate.

What does it cost?
It's FREE!  I want to share what I'm doing with as many people as possible this year.  I want to offer you the opportunity to create and inspire along side me.  I want you to experience how amazing it feels to create and be within a group!

Who should attend?
You!  And bring a friend or two.  If you have been a loyal supporter, this is a little way for me to say thank you.  If you're looking to add some more creativity, whimsy, or inspiration to your life--this is for you.  If we have never met, but your just curious about art or art in Barberton or living a creative life, please join us.

What is yoga nidra?
It's a form of deep relaxation.  Some people call it yogic sleep because it is so refreshing and restorative.  We will warm up and breathe together for a few minutes, and then participants lie down on a yoga mat, get comfy, and listen as I guide your attention around to different points on your body.  You simply lie on the mat and relax.  If you have a yoga mat, blanket, and small pillow, bring them.  I also have yoga mats to share.

If you have more questions, email me:
I can't wait to see you at the Inspiration Market

Intuitive Painting Mini Retreat

I had a great time today at an intuitive painting workshop!  I got to bring a bit of yoga, but I also got to enjoy being guided by another artist's process.  You can learn more about the experience HERE.  I love making art and sharing art!

Stuff I Made Week 1 of 2018

I decided that this year I'm going to see how much I can make with the materials I already posses.  I also thought this super cold week was a great time to make some Valentine themed creations.  I haven't made any handmade paper for about three months, so that was my medium of choice.

All of these items are completed and available for purchase!  Give one of a kind cards and artsy gifts to your friends and sweeties.  Shop local small business to keep your money in the community and support working artists!

A whole collection of handmade paper!
Greeting cards, little watercolor valentines, love letter books, and matted pieces

Four matted pieces of handmade paper assemblage.  $15 each

Greeting cards $4 or 3/$10

If you saw something that is perfect for you or someone else, send me an email, , and we will arrange to get it to you.

Sending you some handmade love and friendship!

Big Birthday Blowout Sale

It's my birthday week!
I love to do 2 things for my birthday:

1.  Reflect on the twists and turns my life has taken.
2.  Give other people stuff

So for the reflective piece I'm really focusing in on how I'm a great cheerleader and advocate for others but not so much for myself.  {That's a tough one to dig into.}  I'm ready for that to change so that I can experience abundance as an artist and teacher and coach--as well as a woman, mom, yogi, human, et al.

Abundance is my word for the year!  It means lots of difference stuff for me, but I'll save that for another day.

I LOVE TO GIVE TO OTHERS AS A GIFT TO MYSELF!  I've given away a wide variety of goodie bags and treats to adults and kids on my birthday over the years. 

This year I'm giving a great discount at my etsy shop, Brave Inspiration, on all the prints.  The sale is 20% off all prints!  If you've had your eye on something, or you can use a boost, this is the week to shop away.  The sale begins Jan. 10, and it ends Jan. 17.

If you're local email me your order, and I'll deliver to you to avoid the shipping charge!

Cards for the Camino

To all the amazing people who follow my art, I'm not sure if I've told you about the epic adventure my son, Sam, and I are taking...
