I'm on my way out to work.  Before I head out, I want to leave you with these incredible vintage Japanese images courtesy of Ookami Dou.  They are absolutely divine! Go ahead daydream., I dare you.

Anahata Katkin

I'm jumping up and down like a mad woman.  I just stopped over at Anahata Katkin's blog and was informed that she will be featured in Somerset Studio's July issue. 

 If you're not familiar with her, do yourself a favor and click on over to her blog as soon as you read this post.  Anahata is cofounder of PAPAYA! Inc.  She is such a special artist with a whimsical, edgy and ethereal style that will transport you to places bound with beauty and spirit.  Her art is not meant to be explained but to be experienced. 

This girl can teach us all a thing or two about how to weave and live A Woven Life.  As I sit here burning some sage I think to myself...."Perhaps, if the Gods are good to me, I can one day have the pleasure of interviewing her."  I just threw subtlety right out the window with that one!  I suppose I get so energized by her art and philosophy because she is a testament to my belief that we can "follow our bliss" and create authentic lives.  What are we waiting for? Shall we.

Across the Universe We Go

For a sweet dose of inspiration, check out Across the Universe. It's one of my favorite blogs by artist, Shilo Shiv Suleman. Her illustrations, photography and poetic genius always make me smile. Can you believe we all have this creative thread running through our veins? We do.  Each of us has an instinctive desire to create.  It makes us feel alive! Closer to our truth.  I believe there is a proverbial source of creativity at our disposal.  A communal pot, which we can add to or collect from dreams beyond our imagination.  It is where we get our most animate thoughts and ideas from.  The more we add to it, the more we grow and get in return.  That's the beauty of it.  Nurture each others thoughts and endeavors.  Grab a nice cool glass of lemonade and watch them sprout forth incredible deeds before your eyes.
