JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 86 :: kindness rules

30 Mar

Back to School Cool.

I’m taking a page from my friend Bren’s playbook tonight:  Kindness Rules.

Bren is an artist and inspiration. He develops and paints murals (along with many other inspiring projects!) and I LOVE his latest work of art:

Even kids in school know that kindness rules. If only we could all remember and hold it dear as we grow up. Thanks for the reminder Bren. All the little kids and big kids can use a gentle nudge.

And that brings me to this:
Sometimes, I think I knew more when I was a child.

More tomorrow….

JAMIE’S BLOG – DAY 345 :: bliss and star wars

15 Dec

Today’s bliss…the blank side. 

It’s really quite amazing, this Star Wars phenomenon. It’s everywhere. Every. Where. And, as Friday gears up to be the single biggest movie of all time first day release EVER, well, I just can’t get enough of the hype. 

Including this from my friend and the amazing artist Bren Bataclan. 

In this episode you learn how to draw an alien spacecraft in less than a few minutes. But the best lesson of all might be from Bren’s own words: 

“Your imagination is the most important tool.”

When it comes to art and life, imagination leads the way. Thanks for the blissful reminder Bren (and Beanie!). Even Walt Disney and his Imagineers knew that. Ironically, Disney now owns the Star Wars franchise.

Which brings me to one of my favorite quotes:

If you can dream it, you can do it.
-Walt Disney

JAMIE’S BLOG – DAY 305 :: blissful wurtles

5 Nov

Today’s bliss…. a wurtle. That’s not a typo.

This one’s from my friend Bren. He’s an artist, one I have watched for over a decade. I was so excited to own a few of his very unique and truly inspiring pieces of art…. way back then. And I still love them to this day.

Now, Bren has something else that brings a smile to my face. Videos that teach art to children in the Beanie and Bren Show.

In this one he teaches a mashup of a turtle and a whale – a Wurtle of course!!

Way to go Bren! Still rooting for you — you always make me smile and you still bring me bliss.

Best part? I love the message…. “And remember don’t erase” — because doesn’t that go for art and life. 

More tomorrow.

BLOG – GIFT DAY 174 :: the art of the smile

23 Jun


Because smiles matter, right?I am so THRILLED to share this with you today. As you know, I am exploring the whole idea of ABUNDANCE for my promise this year.

So far, we have heard from some people I adore in the money, spirit, celebration, joy, health and wellness fields. And today, I am super excited to share another perspective.

A creative one.
A smiley one!

Today, I present  Bren Bataclan

Bren is a talented artist who started not just a painting career — but a smile crusade!

He began giving out paintings for FREE in Boston through the Smile Boston Project.

GOOD NEWS: you can now spot his paintings sitting on a park bench anywhere across the country as he takes his Smile Project coast to coast this summer.

I am a proud owner of a few smiley pieces myself, from when I first met Bren over 10 years ago:

His story is amazing — he even has some of his art pieces planned to go into outer space  Yes… OUTER SPACE.  Beam me up, Smiley! 

–> Click here to listen to the interview and find out how it all started. 
I wish you all abundance and smiles.

More tomorrow.

Lovemore {fearless}
{what does abundance mean to you?}
