cultivate your creativity, a workbook for colorful creatives, oh my! handmade goodness, jessika hepburn

Its time!

I feel like you are all coming over to my house for a party and I am so excited! The rooms are decorated, food is waiting to be shared, and we have oh so much to talk about. Today is the day I offer up the biggest piece of my heart yet: Cultivate Your Creativity. An illustrated workbook to help calm the chaos of our busy lives, so that we can reach inside to find stillness, and literally draw out our creativity. A place where we can revel in all the things that we already know and how many things are going right. In these pages there are no to-do’s, messes to be cleaned or dinners to be made. Here there is space to breathe and reflect. It is my gift to you, but also to myself. While I illustrated each page, first by hand with pencil and paper, then with pixels and paint buckets-I was cultivating my own creativity. I wanted to fill a book with my hopes and dreams for Oh My! and the whole handmade/creative community.

My hope is that Cultivate Your Creativity lifts you up and makes you feel not only lighter, but stronger as well. Just like this beautiful community does for me every day. Let’s keep on dreaming big together!
