This is a serious and easy-to-use, intuitive planner. It’s also the one that most of us at Brush Dance are using.  See All Karma Planners

WEEKLY PLANNERS

2018 Weekly Planners from Brush Dance measure 5″ x 7″ and are the perfect size to fit into most backpacks and handbags.  As with all Brush Dance products, the paper quality is top-notch.  These Planners have yearly and monthly reference pages and each 2-page spread features one week. As with the Karma Planner above, Weekly Planners have wire-o binding and an elastic band closure. You can see them all right here.

 

MONTHLY PLANNERS

Finally, for those who need a planner for reference or just a few notes and appointments, we present the Brush Dance 2018 Monthly Planner.

Our Monthly Planners are super-handy and ready to be stashed in bags of nearly any size. Keep one on your desktop for easy planning. At just 32 pages, these books will take you through the beginning of 2020.  Each 2-page spread represents one month.

Stocking Stuffers

In addition to all of our wonderful Calendars and Planners, we also have a huge assortment of Stocking Stuffers that are perfectly priced for your holiday shopping budget.  Let’s explore . . .

 

We love this collection of Everyday Bravery enamel pins from Emily McDowell Studios. Finally, recognition for the things in our daily lives that require courage.  Maybe we should all get one of these as a reminder that we don’t have to please everyone?

 

Activist-Enamel-Pin__90685.1510078432.500.500Speaking of pins, ACTIVIST is one of my favorites from Seltzer Goods (a brand that is new to Brush Dance). Get one for yourself and one for your BFF because you know you’re on the right side of history.

See all Table Topics (we’ve listed some sample questions – making it easier to choose the perfect set for you).

Coffee!

We have a small assortment of really fun keytags.  Here’s one for the mom in your life.

We are absolutely wild about these reusable bags from LOQI.  Artful, fun, practical, and handy! This one is my favorite – or maybe it’s this one?

 

Thank you for shopping with Brush Dance – we appreciate you and your business.

Mindful Living During the Holidays

With the holiday season in full motion, we’re thinking we all need a reminder to take care of ourselves.

How do you stay mindful during the holidays? Here are just a few suggestions:

  • Spend some quiet time each morning – meditate, journal, just breathe before the busy-ness of the day sets in
  • Manage expectations – yours and theirs
  • Eat mindfully – find a quiet spot, sit down, no take-out containers
  • Remain grateful – notice the joy
  • Get extra sleep

Wishing you a joyous holiday season.

Featuring: Renee Locks

Brush Dance 2018 Karma Planner Live With Intention Cover
2018 Renée Locks Karma Planner

Renée Locks has been part of the Brush Dance family of artists since the 1990s. Her works have been wildly popular with our customers for many years. Many customers will return to Brush Dance year after year to specifically pick up a Calendar or Planner featuring the art of our much-loved Renée.

2018 Live with Intention Wall Calendar

Renée’s art is carefully paired with meaningful quotes that are meant to nourish, heal, and bless the mind, heart, and spirit.

2018 Live with Intention Mini Wall Calendar

Many of the items featuring the art of Renée Locks are titled as Live with Intention, the poem by Mary Anne Radmacher. Mary Anne has also been a tremendous part of the Brush Dance extended family, with her own Live Boldly line.

 

2018_Laugh_Lines_12_Wall_Calendar_Front__24294.1490109927.1280.1280
2018 Laugh Lines Wall Calendar

One of the things we most love about Renée is her playful sense of humor. Watercolor splotches and splashes are paired with quotes that invite us to laugh every day with her Laugh Lines Calendar.

Renée lives in the San Francisco Bay Area – close enough to the Brush Dance office that we get to visit on occasion.  She taught Western style calligraphy for more than ten years, and taught herself Sumi brushstrokes. Renée believes in giving back to her community, and has worked at local women’s shelters. We also appreciate that she is very active politically. Renée has raised five children, and now has oodles of grandchildren.

Mindful Eating 2018 Wall Calendar

Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and even when we are doing our best to live a more mindful life, time can still seem to fly right on by, yes?

During this busy time of year, it becomes even more important to make sure we are taking care of ourselves. Becoming too busy and stressed can lead to a lack of sleep, and illness. While it seems counter-intuitive to some of us (calling all Type-A personalities!), slowing down when we’re the busiest may just be the best thing.

2018_Mindful_Eating_12_Wall_Calendar_Back__09140.1490020182.1280.1280

Part of living a slower and more mindful life is making sure we are paying attention to the food we eat. For many, this means more fresh fruits and vegetables and less packaged and processed foods.  It means preparing foods at home rather than hitting the drive-thru.

The 2018 12″ Mindful Eating Wall Calendar is twelve months of gentle, healthful reminders through beautiful photography and encouraging words.

2018 Christian-Inspired Calendars and Planners

2018_Angels_12_Wall_Calendar_Front__45071.1490015473.500.500
2018 Angels Calendar

Brush Dance isn’t a religious company. Rather, we like to think of ourselves as all-inclusive with a focus on mindfulness.  Religion and prayer are definitely one path to mindfulness and we include several Christian-based Calendars and Planners in our line every year.

Our Angels Wall Calendar (shown above) features black and white angel images with occasional pops of color. Each of the 12 months also features a quote inspired by angels. This title is not deeply religious and would be appropriate for anyone who wants to be closer to the angels.  The quote on the cover seems apt:  Angels are never too distant to hear you.

2018_Bible_Inspirations_12_Wall_Calendar_Front__59251.1490016523.1280.1280
2018 Bible Inspirations 12″ Wall Calendar

Bible Inspirations features uplifting word from and about the Bible. It’s filled with gorgeous nature images and reminds the user that He has made everything beautiful in its time (Ecclesiastes 3:11).

Bible Inspirations is also available in a 7″ Mini Wall Calendar, and a Planner (see below).

2018 Scriptures 12″ Wall Calendar

2018 Blessings 12″ Wall Calendar

And, finally, Blessings.  This 12″ Wall Calendar is super-modern with its bright colors, graphic designs and fun typography. The messages are comforting and encouraging.

Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving.  (Psalm 95:2)

From traditional to modern, Brush Dance has you covered in Christian Calendars and Planners.  And if Buddhist living fits you better, we have that, too.
