My friend Linda Woods and her seester Karen rock. End of story. They rock. First of all, because they are just super dee duper cool people. Mostly because they are one of the pillars in the foundation that started my creative adulthood. They recently wrote a new art journaling book, and called it YOU RULE. I love it on about a billionty different levels. I especially love that they don’t encourage you to only journal or create when you’re happy, or have only nice things to say. I was already sure before I read it, that the book was going to be pretty amazing. Then Linda asked me to take a look at it. Of course I said YES!!
I got the Kindle version, and it’s amazing. I was inspired. I wanted to get out the paint and get some frustrations out…
but there’s this thing.
I call it
It’s pretty contagious, and I have it really bad right now.
Busy busy busy.
I have so many things on my to do list of busy that when people ask me what I’ve been up to or what my plan are,
I cannot remember.
My life had better not DEPEND on me remembering either… because otherwise, I’m toast.
Linda’s book, however, has affected me.
It put an idea in my mind…
and when I get creative ideas, they swim in my head until I get them out.
I had to create.
So I went digital!!
Linda’s book is about rules, and the rules that no one seems to have put into the handbook of LIFE.
When you read them, you will totally have a personal experience that fits the rule.
My new rule was inspired by my friend Kelly, who is the QUEEN of cussing by using non cuss words. I love her for it, and even though I know the latest one I heard from her isn’t new, it was fresh to me…
cuss like you mean it. YOU RULE is also available in print if you want to hold it in your hands!!
Disclosure: Thank you, Linda, for the free kindle version of YOU RULE!! I would have needed to create this and blog about it anyway.
