Two things ✌️

Hey friend,

I’ve been on my mini sabbatical week this past week.

But wanted to let you know a couple of things…

Number one, my fall and winter show calendar has been finalized!

I’m excited and grateful for all these opportunities… Really lucky to live in an area where people support handmade, small businesses πŸŽ‰

You can click here to get links to all the events above. Save the date and come say hello if you’re local!

Ok, update number 2 – my 2020 calendars are here and shipping!!

Real talk here – I ordered 250 copies, thinking I would sell out but not until later in the season.

But you all showed up in a real way during preorder, and as of right now, I’ve sold nearly 190 of them 😍

A simple math says I’ve got 60 copies left.

If you look at how many shows I’ll be selling at this holiday season πŸ‘†πŸΌyou know they won’t last very long…

I’m probably gonna re-order more copies but haven’t decided when/how many yet πŸ€”

I do want them available to everyone who wants it. And at the same time, I don’t want to carry a bunch of leftovers into the new year… πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

I’m telling you this because I want to be transparent with you and don’t want you to be disappointed later when I’m sold out!!

A good news is – I’m still offering an exclusive promo for my VIP email subscribers.

2020 Self-care calendar sneak preview!

I meant to design a monthly calendar last year, but I had too high of an expectation for myself, ran out of time, so it didn’t happen πŸ˜‘ sad.

However, I’m happy to tell you that it’s coming back for 2020!

My 2020 calendar will be all about self-care, self-acceptance, and confidence.

It’s a strange timing though that I’m working on this calendar now because things have been a bit chaotic in my life lately.

Don’t worry, no divorce or illness, thank goodness 😬 But, I’ve got a new studio space that I’m setting up (unexpected but exciting. more on that later), and a couple of other non-biz-related things have kept me feeling a bit ungrounded and scattered.

(As I write this email, I realized the core issue is my routine has been disturbed by these unexpected events. As much as I’d like to go with the flow and be spontaneous, I needΒ routine for my well-being. Check.)

Needless to say, it’s taken longer to finish the calendar…πŸ˜€ but I still aim to get them out to you sometime in October ✨

Here is the sneak preview!

So pretty, no?? 😻

I don’t know if you knew this, but I craft these encouraging messages for myself, first and foremost.

And they resonate with me so much more when I’m in a more uncertain space.

As I put together these designs, I remind myself to breathe, acknowledge that I’m in that space, and be present as much as possible.

Nothing lasts forever, and I’ve come out ok through 100% of the past difficult situations (and don’t remember most of them πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ), so this, I shall survive also.

I’m trying to be gentle with myself and give myself permission to be “meh” in a meantime.

If you’re also feeling “meh,” it’s OK. Take care of yourself, my friend ❀️
