Hello Love Journal

Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day.

We usually keep it casual at my house. One year, we might exchange small gifts, the next just a card. We were once in Las Vegas for Valentine’s Day – along with about a million other people (won’t be doing that again). This year, we have a houseguest arriving.

I can imagine my husband giving me a a bouquet of pretty wild flowers – or a pair of hilarious sassy socks from Blue QHe gets me.

How do you celebrate Valentine’s Day? Maybe you have a Galentine’s Day party instead (or in addition to?)

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Love the moment, and the energy of that moment will spread beyond all boundaries.

National Breast Cancer Awareness month was founded in 1985. The famous pink ribbon came along in 1993 when the Estee Lauder Company established The Breast Cancer Research Fund. Ever since, pink ribbons and October have served as reminders that all women need to be screened for breast cancer.

Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart.

As women, we have a tendency to not take care of ourselves. To put the needs (and even the tiny wants) of others before our own.

Some women may think they won’t get breast cancer because it doesn’t run in their family.

Quiet the mind and the soul will speak.

Others may feel like there’s just no time to get to the doctor for a screening.

callily17_salespiece_fc__52177-1458829326-1280-1280
Happiness held is the seed; happiness shared is the flower.

It’s important that every woman get screened for breast cancer. You’re important. You owe to yourself and to all of the people who love and rely on you to take care of your body.

Please get screened and talk with your provider about any family history and the appropriate schedule of screenings for you.

Cats are welcome. People are tolerated. 

At Brush Dance, we don’t necessarily create the art and photographs that appear on our calendar items, but we do spend countless hours designing the final products that end up on our website or in your local shops.

The images, words, and fonts we choose come together to help set the different moods for different calendars.

We had been searching and searching for a great font for The Cat’s Meow (above), and one day our Art Director messaged with, “Found it!!” And sure enough – the title font does look just a little “cat scratchy,” yes?

Hello Love

Hello Love needed a font to complement the romance of Paris. This one fits the bill perfectly.

The most alive moment comes when those who love each other meet each other’s eyes, and in what flows between them.
