Hello, Art Nurture Community! I apologize for being lax on the blog front, but this past month of December has found me battling the mega flu and the super bug of congestion that followed and has held on tightly. So, here you see the cup of hot tea I am sipping to nurture myself.
This type of nurture is hard for me. I am a go-get-em type of gal. I don't like to slow down. I have confessed this many times here to you all. This December has forced me to conserve energy as opposed to pushing the limits as I normally do. I have been cutting back on my normal productivity to focus on getting healthier, but have still been seeking to maintain important deadlines. It has been a major lesson in humility and what I can expect of myself when I am not feeling so well. Going into the New Year, I am feeling a wee bit tired, yet hopeful. This hot tea is healing stuff.
As you know, Art Nurture The Book is going to happen! Expect it coming your way this Spring 2013. I am currently working through the challenging process of editing and hoping to get a major chunk of design work done at the first part of the New Year!
The subtitle has been decided as well....
Art Nurture: The Simple Guide to Cultivating Your Creativity
This project has been funded through the encouragement & support of nearly 100 backers via Kickstarter! A big THANK YOU is due to you all!
As I spend each day chipping away at the work that needs to be done to make this project happen, I am filled with gratitude. This would not be moving forward as it is without you all and I am overwhelmed by the beautiful support of this community, even when I am sickly and not at my best. Seriously, helping hands and willing hearts hold us up. I am not perfect and you are not either, but together we make art and that art is life. So, thank you for being a part of this collaboration.
This weekend I will be posting a shopping cart for pre-orders of the book, so for those of you who shared with me that you were sad to have missed the Kickstarter deadline, keep your eyes peeled and you wont miss out on the first printing coming your way this Spring!
For now, I will finish this cup of tea.
Keep nurturing yourself & your creativity,

"Court has a knack for supporting others in tuning into the artist within..."
"If preparing to work with Court you should know that you will be challenged to be your best self and you will be given tools for how to do so.
You may also find yourself realizing dreams and vocations that may have been easier in the short term to keep hidden, but overall will allow you to embrace this creative part of yourself and live more fully." -Faith Josephs
