Art and Love from Me to You

A Year of Wishes

My first calendar is here, called A Year of Wishes and I am SO excited about it because it is a sweet collaboration with my friend, Lisa Sarick.  And ohmygosh we made a video about how it came to be that you can see on my A Year of Wishes page.  You know when things just fall perfectly in place?  That was how this project worked.  We ended up with more than a calendar. We paired my artwork with her loving-kindness affirmations to give you a year of wishing blessings for yourself and the world.

I also designed 3 Holiday Cards while listening to Pandora Radio and drinking yerba mate.

You can buy them individually or in group of 12.

I’ve written before in my blog that my dad died when I was 15, two days after Christmas.  For years I have carried a sadness around the holidays- even some years even dreading the whole Christmas season.  This year I decided I would allow myself to really enjoy the holidays for what they are.  It was strange that I just decided that and I felt a shift happen in my heart.  I am open to more happiness and I am feeling it already.  Making this calendar and the holiday cards was a great start.

Thank you for being here…sending love and gratitude to all of you.  xo

    OMG. I just watched your Year of Wishes video and my two year old crawled up onto the table to watch and he yelled, ‘COOL! COOL!’ And I said, ‘That’s Aunt Lori,’ and he pointed to you and said, ‘Aunt Lori,’ and then he pointed at Lisa and said, ‘AND MOMMY.’

    BaaaHAHAHAHAAAA!

    Love you two. So cute and fun. Can’t wait to get a million of these.
