Always reach for the same colors? Yep! Me, too! Recently, in a printmaking session with my friend @susananng I chose a different color to add contrast. Instead of black or paynes gray, I used permanent violet dark by @goldenpaints. It is a beautiful color.

I challenge you to try a new color this week and stretch yourself out of your comfort zone. 😊️

Five Things:
[1] New experiences and possibilities can be scary but often the reward is worth the risk.
•
[2] I am so blessed to be creating art and working for myself...a situation I never imagined.

[3] Try to find the good in even the most difficult situations.

[4] His patience is what's extraordinary about my husband.

[5] Sunflowers remind me of happy, smiling faces. 😊

On a recent trip to California, I discovered Mindful Magazine. In fact, the racks at Barnes & Noble were filled with various publications on this very topic. It got me thinking about what it means to be mindful. Here is a simple definition: "Mindfulness is the basic human ability to be fully present, aware of where we are and what we’re doing, and not overly reactive or overwhelmed by what’s going on around us."

Working in my art journal is a mindful activity as I am fully present and focused on what I am doing. With intention, I try to block out what is happening around me and enjoy those precious moments of art time. •
I love when things come together so, it was no surprise when Design Team member, Anna created this colorful mini gratitude journal tutorial. What a great way to take a few moments each day to intentionally focus on what we are thankful for.

'Productivity’ sounds like yet another of those boring buzzwords, right?

I don’t think that’s the case - improving your productivity allows you to do more of the fun, creative stuff that you want to be filling your business with.

There are so many programs and pieces of software out there that claim to do this, but loads of them are so complicated. You end up spending more time figuring them out and using them than you would otherwise.

I’m on a quest to source and share tools to help you maximize time and make space for your creativity. Check out these 3 tools to maximize your creativity on my blog. Link in bio or here: http://bit.ly/CBTKProd

Are you interested in learning more about how to get organized? 😊

Something bright, colorful and fun is coming soon! Playing with new art supplies, making journals, tags and mail art...here is a peek.

Tip: stamp some of your favorite images onto text paper with black acrylic paint, cut out and use in your work. This is a great way to add those images as additional layers.😊

View from above. It is a printmaking day in the studio with @susananng using the @gelliarts Gell Printing Plate. Making papers and journals for a new class. •
Tip: Spritz your plate before wiping it clean and press a piece of watercolor paper on it to absorb the last of the paint. You'll love the results!!! 😊

Spent the day painting with my friend @susananng and our amazing instructor @jennydoh I learned so much and it was a pleasure being a student. We didn't finish, but are off to a great start.

I remember the day I saw my first issue of Martha Stewart Living Magazine. It inspired me to take special care to decorate my Christmas gifts each year with a theme. Brown shipping paper with raffia and sprigs of fir, bold black and white polka dots with bright red ribbon and sparkly lime green paper with vintage lace...the possibilities are endless.

Design Team member, Ashli Oliver loves crafting for the holidays, especially when it comes to the gift wrap! I am crushing on her beautiful hand painted gift bags with sweet faces, doodles, marks, buttons and sequins.
