* YOU GOT THIS * Inspirational Adult Coloring Book

image

I recently was gifted a bunch of blank coloring pages from * YOU GOT THIS* a mantra coloring book. Each page is an inspirational positive affirmation or mantra that can be colored to your hearts content. As this New Year begins, I have been making a huge effort to practice mindfulness, gratitude, and positive affirmations in my life. Sometimes adulting can be hard, and I am really grateful that “adult” coloring in now considered “zen”. I’ve completed a handful of them so far and some are hanging up in my studio to remind myself *YOU GOT THIS*

Check it out!

Shout Out to Austin Kleon ! *Book-spiration*

These books found me at the right time.

Austin Kleon’s books are a real life approach to re¬†igniting¬†inspiration, getting motivated, sharing your work with others, and giving yourself credit for the things you’ve done so far. At the beginning of this year, I noticed that my website had some serious cobwebs (the domain name wasn’t even active anymore). It inspired me to change platforms, re-assess what I’m actually *doing*, and to dig deep in the many things I’ve done over¬†my lifetime.

Since I’ve moved home to Cleveland, I’ve been on a sort of creative hiatus, a much needed sabbatical after art school. I’ve still been making small things here and there, but nothing really *portfolio* worthy. It had sort of started to get me down, until I read these books.

Now I look at my work, adventures, and accomplishments, as just parts of me that are constantly evolving. More importantly, they always will be, because I am constantly evolving.

I’d like to recommend these books to anyone looking for a new perspective on how things get done. More than ever, I feel motivated to share my work, my life, my inspiration, and everything in between with the world.
