Show your Work

I really enjoyed reading Austin Kleon’s latest book “Show your Work” 10 Ways to share your creativity and get discovered.


It’s a quick read with sound advice on getting your work out there. While you’re on Austin’s site you can check out the cute trailer for “Show your Work” 


Here’s a diagram from the book about whether or not you should share something on Social Media – or on any platform for that matter. In another diagram Austin tells us not to show photos of our latte’s, our food, kittens or sunsets Smile. He tells us to show our work and our process with the world!

Austin also shares that it’s okay to teach what you know!  So many of us are afraid of someone stealing our ideas or techniques if we show them our process – not so according to Austin – it only enhances your art. So go ahead – show your work Smile.

Grace Happens


I must tell you I am moved and blown away by the wonderful expressions of grace that are showing up in the comments section on my blog.  I created the Grace Happens tote bag as a contest giveaway along with a pendant and asked for everyone’s moments of grace as a way to enter the contest. From messages of grace about healing, self-care, encounters in nature and connection to loved ones and Spirit/God they have all touched me on a deep level. Thank you so much for taking the time to post them.

If you haven’t already entered you still have time – enter here! 

Happy Weekend!

Love, Violette xo

    There’s more than a few books I need to check out and this could well be one for my new when-I-chuck-the-day-job job. 🙂

    I won’t enter the competition (postage is appalling!) Violette but grace abounds in my life . . . daily. I had the girls for the weekend while my son worked and my daughter in law worked on an assignment . . . grace indeed!
