“Not sure where to begin with your next home decorating project? START with ART!”

 

Look for inspiration pieces at an art fair, online, or at a favorite store and let that color palette be your guide. Go with your gut choosing abstract, whimsical or true-to-life imagery that creates just the right mood.

ANIMALS AT THE OFFICE by

Sarah Sommer & Illustrated by Devan 

Colorful children's picture book is dedicated to anyone who's ever worked in an office! You don't need to be a child to benefit from the messages inside. Whether starting a new job or returning to school and a new classroom, fitting in and finding one's way can be daunting. The book's local creative team -- Sarah and Devan -- tell a sweet story through rhyming text and charming illustrations.

WHY A GIFT OF ORIGINAL ART IS A TRUE TREASURE...

"When you buy something from an artist, you’re buying more than an object. You’re buying hundreds of hours of errors and experimentation. You’re buying years of frustration and moments of pure joy. You’re not buying just one the thing, you are buying a piece of a heart, a piece of a soul...a small piece of someone else’s life."

-- Rebekah Joy Piett from Contemplative monk.com
