"be your own kind of beautiful". internationals shop here. dutch/belgian shop here.
a sweet reminder that you can and may be whoever you are. with all your quirks and antics. you are just human just like anybody else, but maybe a little bit too hard on yourself…. everytime you create an art journal page (daily i hope!), you can read this message out loud to yourself “be your own kind of beautiful”. you are allowed to be YOU <3.
this is by FAR the most popular Revlie Art Journal ordered to date. is it because there is a sweet swear-word on the cover :P?
"today i shall not give a fuck". or maybe it's the compete sentiment around it....
whatever it is, it is my favorite also. because i made the original for one of my sweet friends who was very sick at the time. she's up & running again luckely and knowing that my drawing brought a smile to her face, keeps me wanting make more designs <3.
you can get this cute as fuck art journal in my Etsyshopor if you are Dutch or Belgian, shop in my other shop.
now go on. there's still a lot of non fucks to be given for today <3.
SHUT the front door! my ART JOURNALS ARE HERE. yup. beautiful thick (300 grams!) art journaling paper inside. perfect for all your watercolor adventures, acrylic paint messes, mixed media madness, oil pastels craziness, emotional drawings, and anything else muddy you can think off!!
there are 5 cute designs. this is one of the favorites in my postcards & prints, so i figured, you birdies would like it in an Art Journal too! and you will receive a free package of postcards & i write a cute quote on a small label for you. yes. just for you <3.
if you have nothing else to do, go check out my other 4 designs. i promise you, they are cute and there's even one with a swear-word. on the cover. teeheeeee. rascal me.
since christmas is almost around the corner (yes!), i've been working these little fingers off to create new christmas canvasses. YES. there will be new christmas cards Revlie style this year! i've already ordered them and they will arrive this week!
seriously can't wait to put them in my shop(s). and the last couple of weeks i've been in a creating flow and totally 'making-my-mind-up' flow! i know exactly what i want and where i'm going. business wise i mean.
i'm totally focussed on revving up (LOVE that word for obvious reasons :), my own product line. falling in love again with my own design cards, christmas cards, phone cases and i'm planning on creating a complete new line of notebooks. remember those?
they look like this:
and i'm still in love with them. the reason i couldn't make them anymore: i kinda lost my track. i started my own mixed media shop :O, my other core business Artifex Support & Artifex Services grew like crazy and i could barely handle that.
but now, with 10 very very nice employees and Judith, my genius Manager running that show, i can totally focus on Revlie.nl. my webshop has had a make over, which i will show you very very soon.
so things are turning out kinda nice lately. like: finally, after years of dreaming, hoping, wanting, visioning, i'm here where i want to be. not completely yet, because i believe the 'journey' to reaching your goals in life, is never 'done', i do feel i'm living the life i want to live right now exactly. i plan my own time. i have an amazing relationship with my Manager who simply totally understands me & my wishes. which isn't as easy as it seems! i have a sweet & supporting family around me, and so important for me: i can be home with my muppets whenever i need to be. i'm creating so much lately and thinking up a storm of new product ideas. i'm making new business / mastermind friends with other entrepreneurs and i so needed that. people thinking likewise me, or not but disagree with respect.
simply understand and be understood. such a blessing in life.
so, keep on the lookout of my next post when the christmas cards are ready to order, because i surely think you need them <3.
