Take time to do what makes your soul happy… (– handwritten on the above calendar)
So here’s the 2019 calendar…this Helenbobelen waits until all 100 Hummingbirds are created (and that her feet are firmly planted in music territory) to put it all together…almost a decade of goldsmithing, painting, and ukulele music arranging.
For the past few years, I create my own calendars (writing them out by hand, some months accurate and others not so accurate…it’s been good practice, not to mention, a good laugh when it’s the latter) — and as long as I can remember, I always valued a year-at-a glance calendar…as a part of me wanted to, literally, see the larger picture. It’s almost as if, the year-at-a-glance calendar is telling me…you have all this time, what do you want to do with it? Where do you want to spend it? Who do you want to spend it with? What material things will you create (or mindfully mastigate) to give you more even more quality time, a sense of vitality, and/ or a wonderful sense of ease?
In being loosely time-organized (not too organized, but definitely a minimalist), I somehow convince myself I’m able to turn on a dime, and be more prolific…creating items which are both beautiful and useful…or just beautiful…for this Helenbobelen…and for others.
If you’d like one of these useful beauties for yourself or for a loved one, you can purchase them in the art shop here…and as always…a percentage of the proceeds go toward a 501c3 charity…
May you be inspired by art to value your soul…
From now until August 31st, for every Helenbobelen.com purchase, a pair of Special Edition Sterling Silver Thinnest And Strongest Thin Hoop Earrings will be donated to a 501c(3) benefitting children, animals, and/or the environment.
Thank you for loving support and purchases…
All Helenbobelen.com purchasers will be automatically entered into our 6th Annual Helenbobelen.com December Blog Celebration!
