Mindful Eating – 2018 Wall Calendar

Our Mindful Eating calendar for 2018 is one of my favorite new titles.

With thoughtful and inspiring quotes combined with beautiful food photography, this 12″ x 12″ Wall Calendar is perfect for any kitchen.

In a very non-pushy way, this calendar reminds us that it’s important for us to pay attention to how we are feeding our bodies. A very wise woman once told me that we have to pay attention to how we are eating in order to make changes. Being more mindful about food has definitely helped me make better choices for myself (most days, anyway.)

We’ve made a video that shows each of the inside pages just a bit bigger.  If you can’t see the video below, click here.

The 2018 Mindful Eating Wall Calendar is available in your local shops now, or buy from our online store.

 

 

 

How Will You Spend This Summer?

How will you spend this summer?

At Brush Dance, early summer is our busiest time of year.  We are shipping orders out to our largest customers, coordinating time away (because even though we’re crazy-busy at work, everyone deserves a break), and working quickly to finish up our 2019 (!!) calendar designs. It’s busy!

In my personal life, I have already traveled some to see friends and family, and there are another couple of trips on the horizon.  I won’t even mention our home remodeling project. When it’s like this, there’s only one thing to do – Embrace The Chaos.

Actually, I like to think of it more as “Embracing the Organized Chaos.”  I am the kind of person who enjoys making lists, being organized, and knowing what is coming next. I don’t mind if the plan changes last minute because I know that I can fit any priority item into my schedule.

Priorities. That’s the key, right?  Figuring out what is most important and then setting things up so that we can treat those things like the priority they are.

In no particular order, my priorities for this summer:

  • Brush Dance projects
  • More practice with drawing/watercolor
  • Visiting with family and friends
  • Play board games (we like Carcassonne, Settlers of Catan, and Boggle)
  • Goal: Complete an entire week’s worth of NY Times Crossword puzzles with my husband
  • Watch trashy TV (reality show junky right here)
  • Create some quiet moments
  • Say Yes.  Accept what comes. Embrace the Chaos!

2018 Live With Intention Wall Calendar by Renee Locks

 

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.
