It’s an exciting time of year here! Our 2019 Calendars have arrived at our warehouse and are ready to ship!
I’ve always said that the most challenging part of working at Brush Dance is getting one’s mind around the production schedule. Our 2019 Calendars have been in production since 2016.
Ours is a labor of love – and when new items finally, finally make their way to the warehouse, everyone here is excited beyond belief. Finally, we get to have, hold (and use!!) the items we have envisioned.
I’m showing just a few of our most popular Large Wall Calendars today. They measure 12 x 12″ when closed, and open to 12″ x 24″. We print on FSC-certified paper, the quality is top-notch, and we couldn’t be more proud of our line.
Below are links to our other products. I’ll be back soon with more specifics!
Take a moment to remember how special you are and how lucky the world is to have you in it.
Happy Birthday, Renée Locks!
Renée Locks has been creating art and calligraphy for Brush Dance products for more than 25 years.
Today we celebrate her.
In the seeds of an apple there is an orchard.
Here’s a little of what I wrote about Renée last year on her birthday:
She is a kind environmentalist who is quick-witted and honest. She is political and doesn’t mind sharing her opinions with those around her. Renee raised her family largely on her own in the San Francisco Bay Area where she still lives. She is a yoga devotee, a teacher, an optimist, and – of course – an artist.
Happy Birthday to Renée – an artist, calligrapher, mom, grandma, great-grandma, wise woman, and friend.

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?
