Permission to say, “No.”

Are you joining me for the My Favorite Quotes Challenge?  It’s easy.  Each Monday, I share a quote that speaks to me, you then let it inspire your creativity…card, art journal page, scrapbook whatever your heart desires.  Just create, have fun and share in the Embrace Your Art Facebook Group.  

I am actually putting this one into practice for the next couple of weeks.  This weekend, I was prepared to kill myself with all of my projects, along with trying to make a quick tutorial/art for this challenge and just as I sat down…I started to feel overwhelmed. I thought, “I am about to leave for 10 days, I am launching the Gratitude Junk Journal on Wednesday and so much more. What am I doing?  I have to let go of something.”

Let me put this in the proper perspective for you.

Wednesday, is the first day of the (30 day) Gratitude Junk Journal 2017 Workshop and we’ll be making this awesome Junk Journal together. I’m planning and getting all things ready for the workshop.  Not playing along?  SIGN UP NOW!  We start Wednesday!

Then on Saturday, I head to California and will be teaching LIVE with this awesome group of AMAZING, artist instructors!  Can you say…planning lessons, packing clothes, gathering supplies, shipping supplies, nervous and excited at the same time.  Want to check out our digs and plans for the week…CLICK HERE!

Next, on November 5 the 2nd Session of Hack the Color Wheel begins and I am grateful to be amongst the awesome instructors, who will teach you fun ways to “hack the color wheel” and make some amazing color choices and great art.

….in the meantime, as I am preparing for all of this I am also making new, AMAZING art for the Handmade Holiday Auction with Stephanie Gagos! Buy HANDMADE this holiday season.  Won’t you join us HERE!

I won’t even mention that I am…

  • Coordinating the One BADASS Art Journal Workshop 2018…’s coming!
  • Have recorded the last 3 Angel Lessons for my Angel Bundle peeps.  Just need to edit and upload.
  • Cooking up an awesome challenge for 2018…I Feel Positively…..stay tuned.
  • Working on updating my Etsy Shop and my Society 6 Shop for the holiday.
  • Not to mention…cooking and cleaning and participating in my every day life and love.

So….yes loves…I am saying no to a few things, for a few weeks and one thing I am saying no to is new quotes and art for this challenge.  However, I am still saying yes to sharing.  So over the next 3 weeks I will be sharing new art, sneak peeks of the retreat and auction prep and the art and shenanigans in California, as well as everyday love, laughter and happiness. So please stay tuned.  Watch along on my social media and for goodness sake….keep making art!

I am amazed at the many artists who are sharing, doing challenges etc. just to share an inspire others.  It’s AMAZING and very time consuming and so many do it for free.  Hats off to all of you, who do this and THANK YOU, cause you inspire me, as well!  But today, I sit and I wonder how you keep up with it all.

Don’t forget to stay tuned for my sneak peeks and shares from my California adventures and all of my art making fun and laughter!
