Need a gentle introduction to becoming more physically fit? We suggest yoga.
And if your goal is to check in on the spiritual part of your life in 2018, we have you covered:
We hope everyone is resolving to be just a little kinder, a bit more gentle, and loving with themselves in 2018. This calendar full of affirmations is just the reminder!
And sipping tea is the perfect act of quiet kindness for yourself:
Brush Dance Wall Calendars are perfect not only for planning events and keeping track of appointments, they also serve as beautiful pieces of art and encouragement for your home or office. We’re also having a sale right now. Quantities of some titles are especially limited. Order today to save big.
Are you glad to say goodbye to 2017? Sorry to see it go? Feeling hopeful for 2018?
The world was a busy place in 2017 – and I’m sure it will be this year, too. I’ve decided to Embrace the Chaos.
Last year, I learned lessons in patience (always a favorite…ha) and discovered that there’s no such thing as perfect (and even if there was, I wouldn’t want it). I re-learned that if we don’t have health, we have nothing. And I remembered that family and good friends is where happiness lives.
Have you made resolutions for 2018? Is that a thing people still do? Rather than resolutions (no more junk food – ever!), I prefer to set intentions (I will do my best to limit junk food). It just feels a little more gentle, yes?
For 2018, Brush Dance has three different styles of Planners. Planners make perfect holiday gifts for busy people who need to keep track of appointments, lists, and more. Right now, all Planners (and everything else) are on sale – save 30%.
Let’s take a look at the three formats we offer . . .
Super-Sturdy Cover with an Elastic Band and Wire-O Binding
One Week Per Spread – Includes Checklists, Notes, and Inspiring Quotes
Yearly and Monthly Planning Pages
Numbered Pages and Index (Handy!!)
Both Lined and Dot Grid Pages – Use for journaling, note taking, project management, lists, and more
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
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.
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.
Planners from Brush Dance are perfect holiday gifts and 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 . . .
Kept Going Pin
Took My Own Advice Pin
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?
Speaking 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.
Think you know your friends and family members? Avoid those awkward silent moments by bringing out a box of 135 questions to keep the conversation going. There’s a Family Edition for all ages, and a Do It Yourself Therapy set for the brave among us. See all Table Topics (we’ve listed some sample questions – making it easier to choose the perfect set for you).
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.
Renée’s art is carefully paired with meaningful quotes that are meant to nourish, heal, and bless the mind, heart, and spirit.
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.
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.
