Quite a simple mantra for life
When I found this quote, I fell in love again. In the middle of all the advice on being super productive and making a six figure salary or income, these simple words stood out.
It drove me to tighten the alignment of my values; inspiration, play, connection, freedom and strength, to my art and my creativity.
Revamped my Pinterest boards
I've spent a lot of time revamping and reorganizing my boards so that they would offer you (and me) more inspiration within these five values.
I use some of my earnings from sales of my art, books and related activities to support these charities:
Hope and Play provides trauma therapy for children in Gaza. It's a UK based charity co-founded by my brother.
TreeSisters attracted me because they plant trees. Need I say more? Plus, my father was an ardent gardener with the greenist fingers I've ever known.
Lend with Care is a crowdfunding platform that supports people around the world with projects to make a dignified living.
I'm constantly on the look out for opportunities to host art journaling sessions. I had the chance to do many in Dubai when I was living there. Here in Calp, I'm still finding my way. Meanwhile, I will be sharing tips and thoughts on my social media accounts @iamwhatiart.
