My standard response when asked what Brush Dance is:  We have been creating mindful calendars items and other products for more than 25 years.

Twenty-five years is a long time and most members of our wonderful team have been here 10+ years.

Today, I’d like to show you just a few of the calendar titles that have been with us nearly forever.

Life is a great bundle of little things

Live With Intention is one of our most popular lines. The simplicity, wise words, and calligraphy of artist and good friend Renee Locks connect with people of all ages and lifestyles.

Rumor has it that Mary Anne Radmacher was the very first writer/artist that our founder worked with all of those years ago. Her words are meaningful and encouraging, her style playful.

Interesting Fact: Mary Anne Radmacher is the author of the beautiful poem Live With Intention. Long ago, someone at Brush Dance thought Renee Locks and Mary Anne Radmacher would be a lovely combination. How right they were!

We have more possibilities available in each moment than we realize.

Before I started at Brush Dance, I hadn’t heard of Thich Nhat Hanh. And now? I’m a follower, a believer, 100%. His words, kindness, and gentle spirit move me and his millions of worldwide followers. We’ve paired his tender, inspiring words with the work of artist Adam Guan.

Every moment is made glorious by the light of love.

Rumi is a 13th century Sufi poet – his wisdom has enlightened millions of people throughout the ages.  Combined with artist Matt Manley’s thought-inspiring, almost magical images, the Brush Dance Rumi calendar has been a perennial favorite of many.

“Brush Dance has been creating mindful calendar items and other products for more than 25 years,” is the first part of my standard response.  The next?  “We are so proud of the long-lasting relationships we develop with artists, writers, customers, and vendors.”

I hope you’ve enjoyed this look at some of our “classic” titles. You can see all of our calendar items right here.
