Nope, not on sale. And the price tag of $24.99 for a softcover book almost stopped me. Then I looked inside. It is filled with reasons why, as moms and creative people, art is so essential. And why it's so hard to find the time and the energy to do it. It has sections on creating space, on creating time, on allowing ourselves to put our art as a priority, even if the laundry isn't all done, or the carpets need to be vacuumed.
And it has 12 weekly assignments. And projects. And I knew I had to have the book! Because I have been neglecting my art.

...and I knew that the placement of that book, on that shelf, at that moment, was not a mistake or random event. It's time to make art again.
