Simplicity: Meditative Mandalas – Coloring Book I: for Adults and Kids

3D-SIMPLICITY-103115Why simplicity? Isn’t that what we wish we had in our lives?

Because our lives are already so full, so crazy and so overwhelming! I created simple designs you can fill with your own color choices in your quest to calm down, quiet your mind and have a little fun time on your own.

When I create a mandala, I focus first on a feeling or a thought energy I want to convey through the design. Sometimes it feels like my fingers are being guided by a strong force. Thinking isn’t part of the process—I just watch it happen. Some I delete; most of them are keepers.

Some of these 50 designs are very simple, some more complex. They are great for rank beginners all the way to experts colorists. All of the designs are hand drawn. Some of the lines are a bit wobbly? I have a slight tremor in my hand due to excess use of power tools when I carve! Oh well. It’s OK – makes drawing more interesting!

I Love You! Meditative Mandalas – Coloring Book III: for Adults and Kids

3D-LOVEWhy I love you? Well..you have to ask?

It can be so easy to get so wrapped up in life’s daily chaos that you forget how much you love your friends and family and critters and the earth itself. Well, that’s true for me, anyway.

But then I stop and take a breath, and smell the fragrant air, and come back to just Being Me. Then it’s easy to remember how much I love my really precious friends and family, and my associates and others I know closely or not so, and whose company I’d be really unhappy without. Those connections make me happy and appreciate my life more.

What if you had a coloring book where you find all kinds of lovey images that help you remember your own personal kind of connections? I invite you to fill in all 50 of these simple, love-centered mandala designs with your own color choices in your quest to calm down, quiet your mind and have a little fun time on your own.

The Real Money Secrets

The Real Money Secrets EbookI used to be a starving artist, not knowing how to market or sell my work – or even ask for money!

I read a ton of books and attended many classes from teachers and gurus who said they could show me how to make more, earn more, attract more – and most of it was useless garbage.

I decided I’d had enough of the farce – I believe now that the real answers lie within, and unless we can access them, we will be lost forever.

So to make fun of it all, I drew all kinds of spoofy drawings about what people really do believe will work, plus I and laid out many of the crazy things people told me would work – guaranteed! Hah – not!

If you’ve ever asked yourself, “How can I get more money?” this little spoof book is for you – you’ll at least have a little relief from the constant worry!

I hope you enjoy this little book – at the end I listed some links to things that did, indeed work for me, and to books by people I love and respect.

The Big Bad Wolf Steals the Magic

BBW-3d-4h-72“One Day in the Great Deep Dark Black Forest… The Big Bad Wolf sneaks up behind Little Red Riding Hood and, covering her mouth so she can’t cry out, slings her over his sharp pointy shoulder and quickly disappears onto one of his secret paths that leads far back into the Great Deep Dark Black Forest….”

What shock and surprise awaits her there? What does the Big Bad Wolf want with the Violet Velvet Bag he steals from Little Red Riding Hood’s Grammy? Who is the dreaded Dark One, and why will the entire Forest and everyone in it perish if he escapes his centuries’ old prison?

Harald Crispin Andersson’s scary-fun Twisted Old Tale #2 keeps you on your seat’s edge from start to finish. Richly delicious color-saturated countrysides, odd cloaked people and bite-your-tongue suspense! What are you waiting for?

But why did Mama want them to cover their ears? Or never to tell anyone where they lived? What was she hiding? Or was she actually protecting them from…what?

Mark White’s “Hands” – eBook (FREE)

hands-cover-5h-3dIF YOU HAVE EVER been surfing, or seen pictures of people surfing, you know how important balance is.

And you’ve seen how critical the position of your hands can be.

Out of all the pictures I got from my friend, Mark White, I selected the ones of just his hands – in the waves, falling from his board, touching his buddy board-to-board as they surf, reaching for waves…. I love seeing them. And as I see them, I think, too, of the grace of those hands as he makes his beautiful ceramics, and his line of amazing hand-made deep-sea fish lures! Such hands!
