Dreamer’s Realm – 2018 Wall Calendar

Today, our Creative Manager, Susan, shares some of her favorite items with us. In case you missed them, here are links to the other posts in this series:  Shawna    Karma

Susan has such an important job at Brush Dance. She is responsible for our products from conception, through printing and production. It’s one of those positions where a person needs to be both creative/artistic and well-organized. A rare combination, and she fits the bill perfectly!

Dream’s Realm – 2018 Wall Calendar

Our 2018 Dreamer’s Realm Wall Calendar is one of Susan’s top picks. She said, “Catrin Welz-Stein’s art is so magical and beautifully painted that it is a treat to look at each image for a month. I will never grow tired of her work.”

Our 12″ Wall Calendars and 7″ Mini Wall Calendars are printed on high-quality thick FSC-certified paper (no curling here!) with soy-based inks.

2018 Weekly Planner – Not My Circus, Not My Monkeys

All of us love this Planner (and the coordinating Journal!). Susan says she gets lots of approving nods while carrying this Planner – and she wishes she could use it for four years instead of one!

Blue Q Socks – I’m a Delicate Fucking Flower

Well. Sometimes, you just have to say it how it is, right? Susan thinks this pair of Blue Q Socks would make a great gift for all of our feminist friends. She loves the bold and colorful Girl Power statement. These socks are not just pretty – they are comfy and hold up great.

The adorable Coin Purse above would make a great gift. Susan envisions filling it with pennies and presenting it as a fun-filled (?) birthday gift!  Ha!

The larger tote is, “distinctive and colorful. You can use it for your airport gear (the zipper keeps things secure!), beach stuff, kid stuff, or for anything that won’t fit in your purse. And since it’s about 15 inches wide, it’s not too big or cumbersome.”

Table Topics – Not Your Mom’s Dinner Party

Susan’s final favorite pick is Table Topics.  She had this to say:

My family has lots of talkers. And, we all love games. Table Topics is a catalyst for interesting and lively conversations about things we’ve never talked about as a group. When was the last time you discussed:

  • Have you ever been escorted out by security?
  • Who’s had too much plastic surgery?
  • Would you rather spend a week in jail or serve two weeks community service?

You’ll learn a thing (or two!) about your friends and family, and have some fun in the process.  If you exhaust these 135 questions, there are plenty more versions of the game you can pick up.

And there we have it!  Susan’s Favorite Things!  I love that she has eclectic taste and a great sense of humor!

I also wanted to let you know that we’re planning some exclusive sales for people who are on our mailing list.  You can sign up on our website!
