Good Vibe 5 is Happening NOW

Hello beautiful souls, 
We are just elated to have you here to kick off the weekend with color and creativity — and how about a sale? Let’s roll...

A few days ago, we released the digital download Heart Abloom, and it’s going down in the springy bouquet record books as far as I’m concerned. Why? Because this image is CHOCKFULL with flowers to shade, details to add, a snail to decorate. You’ll find Daffodils, Hellebores, ephemeral Trout Lilies, and the perky surprise addition: Blueberries! I almost teared up when I saw what Corinne Jones did with Heart Abloom — LOOK AT THIS BOUNTIFUL BEAUTY colored up with Copic markers. Corinne got heavy duty with those deep blue-purple Hellebores, and they nicely echo the blueberries! Then the white-edged Hellebore just steals the show, doesn’t it? So impressive to see folks finding inspiration from real plants and using them to color their images. Don’t be afraid, you can get started with a single Hellebore image that comes with this digital set, and then progress to the big busy heart when you’re ready. Read more about the inspiration for this illustration in this blog post.

If you poke into the Kit & Clowder group on Facebook, WHEW will you be rewarded with some eye candy! This month, Alyce Keegan is using TWO Power Poppy images for her coloring classes, and many folks are uploading their progress shots and final pieces on the FB. Just look at what Alicia Borowski posted of her final image using our Hellebores digital image after taking the Kit & Clowder class. You get a big discount on the stamps used for this class, you learn SO much from sweet Alyce, AND you get the support of fellow classmates. It’s a win-win-win. Be sure to read all about this class right here and get yourself signed up.

I just thought you might want to be reminded of my very favorite calming mantra, “All is Well”, by Louise Hay, founder of Hay House publishing. I painted this little card, which I have shared here on the blog previously, for my mom while she was going through her treatments, because I’d found it very comforting to repeat to myself while facing any sort of strife or upset. I especially like the part where it says, “for my highest good” — because that reminds us that our highest good isn’t always something we can envision or put our finger on. Just be still, and know. :)

Be sure to take a few minutes next time you’re on Instagram to see the work of a talented young lady who goes by @altr_art. Exploring her spirituality through Bible journalling, “Altar Art” (get the play on words there?) has been designing the most beautiful and uplifting spreads and sharing them in her feed. I was especially tickled to see her use several of our  Va-Va-Valentines Digital Stamps  in her illuminated pages. Every post is accompanied by a thoughtful story sharing the insights behind her design. Thank you for sharing your beautiful spirit with us, @altr_art! :) 

Who’s ready for an Orchid Attack?? (That sounds kind of terrible, but it’s really quite the opposite, it’s total nirvana!) I’m having a SURPRISE SALE this weekend on our Orchids Rock clear stamp set — SAVE $5 OFF retail for 3 days only. AND AND AND, this is just added: The Cymbidium Orchid from the clear set has JUST been introduced as a digital stamp set, Orchid Cascade. DOWNLOAD IT for $2.99 now through Sunday!

Send an email to and we will make sure you get your updated digis. Thank you, loves.

Enjoy a marvelous weekend, and keep in mind that “All is Well.”
