This image has been one of my best selling prints and most “iconic” image that I’ve ever created. Somehow, it crept into being and stayed around, remaining a symbol to me and to many others of the standard of my work. And it has been a gift, truly, to create an image that I loved and was noticed by others. Yet in everything we do, create, and become, there is a time to move on. Next year I’ll be producing work that is slightly different, much more meaningful to me, and more detailed. I love this work. I love the work that I create because it is me – it is where my mind was wandering in a particular corner of my little universe. I also love to move on – to metaphorically shatter that place and build something new from the pieces. I hope that you’ll be on that journey with me.
So, to break from the past and pay it forward, I am offering this dress as today’s giveaway. It is my favorite dress. I bought it in 2010 at a sale outside of a vintage store. It was crumpled up in a box that had a big $5 sign on it. And when I saw it, I knew I would be inspired for years to come. I have been, and still am, but feel changes brewing inside. My heart tells me it is the right time to let it go.
This has been my biggest lesson of 2015:
When we hold on to what makes us feel safe, we lose our greatest opportunities.
When our imaginations become reality, it is time to explore another corner of the mind.
When we limit ourselves by what we know is well liked, or what who we think we are, we may never find our greatest potential.
What has been your biggest lesson of 2015?
Share in the comments for a chance to win this dress and my heartfelt thanks. My love, gratitude, and deepest adoration go out to you this year and as we enter a new chapter. Thank you for being you.
Peace and joy,
