Courage Warriors on the Road

Hi lovelies,

It is hot and sunny over here in the Pacific NW. I can't complain though. I need this sunshine in my life. I'm writing because I have an awesome project taking place over at and I think the great people over here at At the Art of It deserves to know about it. My spouse and I have started a crowdfunding campaign called the Courage Warriors Project. We (mainly being scaredy cats) are stepping outside of our comfort zones and tackling long held fears. We have been on a courageous journey since we located this way from North Carolina. How did I get here without a place to call home, a job, family, and almost empty pockets? I think it took some courage. Wouldn't you agree? Now, we are ready to go abroad to South Korea. We are stepping into a world so different from our norm and hope to experience many adventures along the way. Our project needs backers and backers get to be a part of the journey as well. Though there are plenty of my perks, my fave is the choosing of our adventure. Yes, you get to decide what we do. I just say check out the project yourself and see how cool it is. Until next time, have a beautifully designed day.

Knowing When to Fold: Closing Up Shop on RedBubble

Hi Lovelies!

I have been brewing with some life-changing decisions this year and I've come to the point where some things have to be released to welcome the new. I can certainly see this occurring physically, relationship-wise, mentally, and even when it comes to this career of mine. As my goals and vision are being reshaped to be in alignment with my values and priorities, I have to stop hanging on to things that have not been serving my highest. So, today I have to inform you that I am ending my time at Red Bubble. Since 2008, I have promoted and sold artwork there but it's not fitting with where I am today. I must also forewarn you that other changes are coming but have yet to be finalized. And that's okay. Sometimes you have to fold and walk away from the table. I can only know that as the vision becomes clearer, better things will be in store for all of us.  Don't you agree? So until next time, have a beautifully designed day.

WOW Wednesdays! Chakaia Booker

Hi lovelies,

It's been a while since my last WOW Wednesdays! post but today I am so itching to share with you the amazing talent that is Chakaia Booker. I learned about Booker's art from an article on about her current installment of sculptures that adorn Broadway. Can I say, "WHOLLY MOLY!" I think she must be an alchemist because she transforms rubber tires and stainless steel tubing into these magical works of art. I don't know how she does it. But, I'm like in awe over her presence and her creations. Check out the video below of her TedxNASA video and then head on over to Artlog's article about her current installation, The Sentinels.

New Feature on Design Juices

Hey lovelies,

This week so far has been absolutely amazing. The weather is nice in Seattle where it actually feels more like summer than spring. Therefore, I have out and about while getting my workout on in the process.  I have been letting go and telling more people about what I do (I used to be shy around this area of my life.) And now today, I am the featured surface pattern designer on Design Juices. I must give a big thanks to Jared Thompson for making this happen. I love Design Juices and am always inspired and loving the works of so many creative beings. Time for another happy dance. What's going on in your neck of the woods? Leave a comment below. Take care lovely ones and until next time, have a beautifully designed day.
