KEEP AT IT in 2012... a Giveaway!


Historically speaking, I've never been one to make extremely specific goals for the new year. It's because there are just so many variables in life that take the best-laid plans out at the knees without warning. And, I don't like to make promises I can't keep.


But... the truth is that life is all about having faith in what lies just around the corner, and totally working toward this—the things which you cannot see (yet) but still pour your everything into, anyway. This year has taught me a lot on the subject. If you believe in the possibility, you do the work, you are iron-clad committed, there is magic in that and it is possible to make your dreams happen. And to top it off, if all those boxes are checked, you really cannot ever lose faith or stop trying, either—it's just simply impossible to.


Lately this has been on my mind, and it's been the focus of a body of work I've just created. Movers & Shakers™ speaks directly to this mentality-shift. The art depicts some pretty cute, independence-minded characters who are earnestly working on their own goals, a peaceful palette created for calm focus, and inspirational sayings (written by me).

As a big "Thank You" to YOU for continually popping in and sticking around on my blog here as I continue on my own journey, I want to share some happiness and thanks with you to help ring in 2012! I'm giving away four packages of "Movers&Shakers: sunny side-up sentiments" art print postcards
(four different prints per pack)
