This is such an exciting time of year at Brush Dance. All of our shiny new items are arriving in our warehouse. Orders are streaming in. And 2018 Calendars are shipping out to our retail partners and website customers. Exciting times!
We love our new Monthly Planners. They begin with September 2017 and go all of the way through the end of December 2019 – more than two years of planning bliss. Love, Love, Love!
These perfectly-sized (5″ x 7″) Planners feature:
flexible, smooth matte-finish cover
space for notes or lists
handy mini grids for previous and next months on each page
I plan to keep mine in my bag for jotting appointments, lists, and reminders to myself.
On Wednesday, Renee Locks will celebrate her birthday, and we are celebrating right along side her.
One of my favorite Renee stories: I’ve been with Brush Dance for something like 12 years – Renee has been here much longer than that. When we first met all of those years ago, she greeted me with, “You don’t look like the president of a company.” Uh..thanks?
We became fast friends, and I regularly tell people that when I grow up, I want to be just like Renee. 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.
Here we are already – the middle of December. Christmas and Hanukkah will be here before we know it.
Some of us here have finished our shopping and are waiting for the big day. Others are still working their lists.
If you’re planning to order for the holidays (and we hope you are), you’ll want to get on that before the end of this week. Between “interesting” weather patterns this time of year and all of us last minute Santas making delivery people so busy, we can’t promise delivery if your order arrives after this week.
We have mindful gifts ready to ship today for everyone on your list.
We recently received a huge order of Leuchttrum Journals. This red one has been selling out all over the place. Perfect for notes, bullet journals, or list making. (Get one for yourself, too.)
And finally, if you’re looking for fun hostess gifts? We’ve got your back.
Brush Dance Weekly Planners are the perfect gift for the organized list-making person in your life. With more than a dozen styles, there is truly something for everyone.
Aquiesse Candles in travel size are terrific for your friends and family members who (like me) need a little spaces of tranquility. With their rich, multi-layered scents and great pricing ($5.99!), these candles cannot be beat. (Travel size shown above. Luxe Tin Shown below.)
It’s hard to believe Thanksgiving is this week – and yet here it comes – the kick-off to the busiest time of the year for many of us.
Let’s take a big deep breath and remember to give thanks.
Let’s live a more mindful life – paying attention to the small details that make our lives so special.
Let’s remember to have a crazy good time with friends and family. And let’s remember to take a little time for ourselves, too.
Like most other retailers, Brush Dance is having some pretty incredible sales going through the holiday season. We are grateful that you spend some of your hard-earned money supporting our small business.
