  1. a small abstract painting, a 5 day "create everyday online class" and one creative coaching session.

    i love doing abstract work because my day is so full of details. art helps me let go.

    i am working to create everyday. i do so through my clairvoyant work but would love to feel it through various art mediums but specifically painting.

    i would just flat out appreciate a creative coaching session. who doesn't need some an extra push to help them do what they love?

    Congratulations on one year, Kari!

    1. ooooohhhh, well said, Jenine. I have found I need a lot more encouragement the closer and closer I get to living an authentic life I love. Thank you for sharing!

  2. "An avalanche of water won't make an impression. A consistent drop of water will...create everyday."

    So true! I find it hard to stop the all or nothing thoughts. Sometimes when you have a goal in mind it can seem overwhelming and just the thought of everything you have to do to get there scares you off to start all together.

    I personally need to constantly remind myself, and refocus on the journey itself, not the end result.

    ::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::create everyday #153: I would love, LOVE, one of your cows!

    Thanks for being so inspiring :)

    1. Thank you for sharing about YOUR process here, Syndia!

  3. I've already gotten an awesome give away before, so I'd only like to give you thanks for inspiring me. Congratulations!

    1. Takes inspiration to know inspiration, Markus. Thank you SO MUCH!

  4. Big Congrats to you Kari,

    1st - My choice is Cows & Small Abstract Painting (many thanks for your offer & generosity) :-)

    Inspirational - especially 'Little By Little' I think that is the best advice ever.

    Here's to many more blogposts.

    1. Thank you, Shelley. So good to receive this from you today!

  5. I love this quote from Moving Mountains: "Do a little bit. Find some help. Do a little bit more." Why? Because it hits at the core of most of us women-folk. We need to be reminded that we don't have to do it all or do it all at once. We need to be reminded that it is certainly okay to ask for help. And, in the end, we need to be reminded that we can move those mountains.

    I would cherish the on-line class. I would also love any of the paintings. They would be cherished also, but it seemed redundant to say the word again. Oh - my Thesaurus said I could use the words treasure/esteem/relish. Those words work also! Thanks for the inspiration.

    1. Oh, Dragon Lady Blue, I cherish your comments. Thank you, SO MUCH for posting. Little by little, my friend...
