Hello Beautiful Weekly Planner

Today, I’m excited to show you some more of our Weekly Planner options.

2018_Timeless_Buddha_Weekly_Planner_Front__96816.1492543401.1280.1280
Peace Comes From Within – Timeless Buddha Weekly Planner

What I like about the Weekly Planner:

  • Convenient Take-Along Size – 5″ x 7″- will fit into nearly any bag easily
  • Monthly Planning Pages at the start of the book
  • One week per page spread – with lots of room for notes
  • Elastic Band to help me keep my life together, and a beautiful satin finish on the cover that resists staining and water damage

Work Hard Weekly Planner

I know it seeeeeems like 2018 is still so far away. And yet, I’m already noticing some changes to the season here in California. I’m going to start filling in my Planner for next year very soon so that I don’t have to think about it during the oh-so-busy end of year.

These Planners are printed on high-quality paper – no tissue-thin sheets that tear easily.

(The above Planner cracks me up every time.)

You can check out all of our 2018 Weekly Planners on our website.  There are lots of cover choices still in stock, but I do recommend ordering soon so you don’t miss out.

Have a great week!

 

Favorite Things – Susan

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!

2018_Dreamers_Realm_12_Wall_Calendar_Back__91222.1492029552.1280.1280
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_Circus_Weekly_Planner_Front__64585.1496345693.1280.1280
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_Delicate_Fucking_Flower_Crew_Sock_Right_Side__33586.1488222352.500.500
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.

Filthy Stinkin’ Rich Coin Purse
Blue_Q_Shoulder_Tote_-_Moon_Garden.1__28633.1493659021.1280.1280
Blue Q Moon Garden Shoulder Tote

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!

Peace Comes From Within – 2018 Timeless Buddha Weekly Planner

I’m trying to decide between Peace Comes From Within and Maybe Swearing Will Help. I’m thinking both of those things can be true – sometimes in the same moment!

We’re adding so many new items to our website this time of year!  I hope you’ll have a look and find something you love.

Happy Halloween!

Don’t wait for your ship to come in – swim out to it.

Happy Halloween!

We’re featuring Strangeling today. The art of Jasmine Beckect-Griffith.

calbeck17_salespiece_fc__65467-1456858100-1280-1280-2
Refuse to be average. Let your heart soar as high as it will.

Jasmine’s art inspires us to look at things (and ourselves!) from another point of view.

Take a closer look at Strangeling items from Brush Dance. The Planner is a wonderful gift item that is priced right, too.

 

Weekly Planners & Date Books

 

planmind17_salespiece_fc__95033-1459432830-1280-1280
The quieter you become, the more you are able to hear.

Our busy season is just starting here at Brush Dance.  Those of us who are planner nerds already have chosen our 2017 tools to help us get ready for 2017.

Today, we are featuring a few of our 2017 Weekly Planners and our 2017 Date Books.

Not My Circus, Not My Monkeys

All of our Weekly Planners have the same uncomplicated interior design (in varying colors). We feature one week per spread and handy lined spaces for each day of the week. Brush Dance Weekly Planners also have an elastic band to keep things tidy.

plancirc17_spread__53491-1459430930-1280-1280

I love love love that the year runs straight through these books with no stopping. At the front of the Planner, we feature 14 monthly planning pages. I’ll show you my planner and how I use the pages in a future post.

dbtnh17_salespiece_fc__72009-1459428809-1280-1280
With hearts established in mindfulness, we are truly present.

Brush Dance Date Books have been a favorite for many years. These hardcover books feature monthly illustrated tabbed dividers, one week per page, a nifty pocket, and (again) an elastic band to keep your stuff together.

True-Blue Bravery – We’re talking about the every day, every moment kind of bravery of being yourself, your real true-blue self, brilliant and inspired or imperfect and messy. Owning all of it.

dbroy17_spread__30095-1459428705-1280-1280

I’ve decided to use a Weekly Planner this year. The harder decision is going to be which one!

dbroy17_spread__30095-1459428705-1280-1280

Our Date Books measure 6.5″ x 8.5″ – they would be beautiful for a desk or taken with you in larger bags.

I know I’ll be going with a Weekly Planner for the coming year (I can’t resist the size and simplicity). I just need to figure out which one.

Fall Color Trends

Screen Shot 2016-08-31 at 12.04.17 PM

Each year, Pantone (the color experts) comes out with its Fall Fashion Color Report. Above are the trending colors for this season. There are some really attractive ones in the mix this year – and maybe one or two I’m not so wild about.  I love the names – the gray is Sharkskin, the red is Aurora Red, and that purply color on the end is Bodacious.

Today, we’re featuring just a few of our calendar items that are on trend . . .

If I can’t make it through one door, I’ll go through another door – or I will make my own door.

You are the universe unfolding.

Fitting together is more important than fitting in.

You are not an observer, you are a participant.

Do you have a favorite from the Pantone selections? There really does seem to be something for everyone this season.
