Florida & Minneapolis!

By Rachel Awes on March 6, 2017

For those of you able to join me and my books, I’ll be in Bradenton, Florida, and would love to see you Friday, March 17, 4:30-6:30 at Latte Luna, 2715 Manatee Ave W, and if you’d like, come along directly afterward to a Bradenton beach and drink in a sunset together! All are welcome!

I would also adore seeing you at Art Is You in Minneapolis, where I will be speaking April 23, 2017. This will be so much fun and if you have never heard of this event, look it up, dears!

With all my love, xox Rachel

Listening to you

This gorgeous artist is DeAnne Olguin Williamson

“Never Underestimate Her”

“She Will Rise”

“Generosity Of Heart”

DeAnne Olguin Williamson is a mixed media artist and art journaling teacher from Southern California. She spent many years as a graphic designer before focusing solely on her true love of fine art. She has found her unique artistic point of view by working in mixed media. DeAnne has showcased her fine art at many galleries around the country but has now added teaching art journaling to her list of passions. It’s become a way for her to dig deep about what inspires her and how she can use her art to connect with others. Most people want to live a life filled with passion and she believes that by getting in tune with our inner voices and our authentic selves, our life’s passions reveal themselves to us.  They help us to live a life filled with purpose and allow us to dream big for the future. DeAnne now lives in Minneapolis, MN with her husband and two kids.

Hugging The Words

By Rachel Awes on February 20, 2017

Words. I have always loved them. They open up worlds when used well, speaking something new into existence. They can sculpt deeper connection, understanding, soften, transform. The thesaurus has been a prized friend over the years. Looking up a paragraph of synonyms to any particular word is downright delectable. Also ambrosial, enticing, nectarous, and yummy. Thus the inspiration for this drawing, this hug, this heart.

What needs opening up in your life? Something new? Something spoken into existence? With all my love to the constellation of your ABC’s, xox

Happy Valentines Day

By Rachel Awes on February 13, 2017

Sending an outpouring of love to you. Embracing all that is real in your heart: your real love stories, all you yearn for, miss, crush on, kiss, embrace, dream of, write to, sing of (loudly and softly), brokenness, mountain toppings, shadow and light, seen, unseen, and in between. I send love to it all. XOXO

Happy month of embracing your big heart AND YouTube Video link!
