When this goes up for sale in my Etsy and Studio shop it will be AT LEAST $12.95 a month, so this is a huge savings! Thank you so much everyone as we close in on the homestretch!

“BE” is just some awesome sauce.

Alright my friends, fans and family! It’s time to kick things up a notch with just FOUR DAYS LEFT!
"BE" an awesome sauce extra add on for kickstarter!

 

It’s soooooo close that every single pledge large and small will make a big difference! Just think of all the fabulous rewards you are going to get including things that will come in the future. Things like more workshops, free live streaming from the studio, studio time donated to non-profit/church youth groups, long distance classes via virtual classrooms and more! This studio is going to be hopping and even if you can’t visit in person there will be many benefits right here on the blog! It’s seriously going to be AWESOME. So grab some awesome sauce with the new kit,  please pledge & get awesome stuff because supporting art makes you…well…AWESOME!

 

IMPORTANT UPDATE!
I know in the digital community we are used to Paypal!  I’ve been getting a lot of questions about using it instead. If you do not want to go through kickstarter you can paypal me directly [tangiebaxter at yahoo dot com] and I will make sure your pledge gets added to kickstarter with my husband’s donation! Your rewards will be delivered the same as everyone else’s once the project funds (Starting approx. May 15th, details will be updated on kickstarter so keep an eye out over there)! Although I encourage you to go through kickstarter so you can get all the updates directly and have your name listed as a project backer on their site, I do understand and wanted to give you another option to be able to use Paypal!

 


Did you get your Dream Maker Freebie?

Hello everyone! Wow what a month it’s been so far, I have been working so hard on the kickstarter campaign, and dreaming up a million classes to offer, the live streaming events, the online parties, the local art parties, donating studio time to non-profits and so much more… my head is spinning (in a good way of course). I am so thankful beyond words to those of you who have pledged and are helping me make this possible! You are awesome, truly!

I want to make sure everyone got their Dream Maker freebie that went out in the SBG newsletter last week! Think of it as a —> thank you in advance for pledging and spreading the word. Plus, of course you get all the other cool stuff at the reward levels too!

I hope you have a wonderful day, make it a great one (and hopefully find some time to art)!

It’s like that movie…Seven Brides for Seven Brothers


The last few weeks have been like no other for me, I honestly wish there were a way to take a snapshot of the feelings in my heart and mind, so that you could FEEL them. But, because that is not possible I hope that you will indulge me as I feebly try to write them.

The world itself is a giant canvas, constantly creating, renewing itself, moving forward, changing seasons. We live in a sphere that is creative at it’s very core of existence. Should we not also then assume that we too are creative? I believe that every living soul yearns to be creative in some form or another. It could be as an engineer, a poet, a mother, a volunteer, an inventor or any of the other countless forms that being an artist takes. Yet, there are many who don’t see themselves as artists (or even creative at all), they don’t acknowledge that part of themselves. Often times they may feel frustrated with life and not even know why. I feel in my heart an undeniably, can’t be held back, yearning to help people connect with that part of themselves, or share ideas with them to nurture a deeper connection if they have already have one.

That is how the idea of Artspiration Studio was born.

As I have reflected the last few days on this dream and whether or not I made the right choice to go with crowd funding or find a way to do it on my own, a huge resounding “YES! You made the right choice!” came over me. Somehow, someway, I would have found a way to do it myself, I feel THAT strongly about it. But I truly believe that some of the magic of it would have been lost. By asking people, by becoming humble enough to admit I needed help, by turning it over to the universe at large the Studio will become something more than I could have ever done by myself. When I walk into the Studio the day it “officially” opens there will be absolutely no thoughts of “I did this” but only thoughts of “we did this”. The light, energy and love of people from all over the world will be there! YOU will be present in the studio, not just by having your name on the wall, but because you believed in a dream. You believed in a vision of helping people connect with a very raw and powerful part of themselves…their creativity.

As I thought about all of this the movie “Seven Brides for Seven Brothers” popped into my head. I thought about the barn raising and how in the “good ‘ol days” people did things together as a community, they made it a party and developed friendships through hard work. The owner of the barn even offered the cutest little milk cow to the team that got their side of the barn up first. It was a simpler time to be sure, but I do believe with all my heart that we still hold those same values as a community today. We  want to help each other, we want to build and create and find satisfaction in a job well done.

I invite you to my “studio raising” instead, and give you a promise that I will work hard at fulfilling the dream and put my entire heart and soul into it.  And while I don’t have an adorable milk cow named Anna Belle to offer you, there are some other fun rewards and of course a huge THANK YOU for believing in the dream. The world needs more places of light, happiness, joy and refuge…and at the very heart of it all that is what we are building together.
