Lots of painting happening around here lately.... Above is a background, ready for something. WHo knows what it'll turn into!
Here's a painting I just finished a couple days ago, which I'm loving on my mantle:
A couple more backgrounds, ready to be painted on:
And the big news of the week:
The Declaration of You is officially shipping! Those boxes of books arrived yesterday, so it really feels real now.
If you pre-ordered a book, THANK YOU, and it'll be on its way to you this week! And if you'd like to order one, you can grab a signed copy on our website HERE, or you can pick one up on Amazon, where it's currently #19 in the mixed media section! Not bad for this being the first week the book is available. Let's hope it gets to #1!
Here's one of my current ones:
I'm willing to believe that I'm strong enough to run a half-marathon in September.
I don't believe that I'm strong enough YET, but I am willing to believe that I have the ability to get there.
(Also, just for the record, I LOVE kale and eat it every day-- if you don't currently eat it, it's definitely worth a try! It's a nutritional powerhouse...)
Aaaand, here's our Intention video, too!
It's Week 2 of The Declaration of You BlogLovin' Tour!
And this week it's all about UNIQUITY. Alllllll the things that make you YOU; that make you unique!
On the surface, it might be hard to think of how you're unique, in a world so saturated with people who probably do the same kinds of things that you do and like the same kinds of things that you do, too.
Using myself as an example, I'm a painter and a pattern designer. I like to run. I like to eat healthy food. I'm pretty average height, pretty average weight, pretty average looks. I like to be outside. I like to travel.
None of these things are all that unique on the surface. There are plenty of people in the world who do those same things and like those same things that I do.
What Michelle and I are here to say is that all the things that make up who YOU are, whether you think they're very unique or not, is exactly what your uniquity is. All your qualities, all your likes/dislikes, all your talents, all your values and beliefs, all mixed up in your body, your heart, your mind, resulting in one beautifully complicated and one-of-a-kind human being.
There is no one else walking on this planet who is quite like you. No one in the world has the same combination of qualities and personality traits and talents and quirks that you do. You are one remarkable, unique person, my friend!
So, just like we did last week, I think we should make a list. List all the ways that you are unique! I'll start, of course. :)
Some of the ways I'm unique (you're about to learn a lot about me!):
