Mo Willems 'We are in an Art-ivity Book!' An interactive Art activity book for creative kids

We are so excited to be back sharing with you the latest Mo Willems book and partnering on a sponsored post with Disney-Hyperion for the #ReadMo ambassador program!

We have loved Mo Willems (New York Times best selling Author) books over the years, and many of them are still my kids favorites!  The newly released book We Are in an ART-ivity Book! by Mo Willems and Mr. Warburton is a new favorite amongst my kids (great for kids ages 4-8)!  They have been begging to take turns with it, and I don’t blame them.  It is pretty rad!

It is a super fun hands-on activity book with games, art projects, awards, and more!

6 Steps to Becoming More Mindful

A Book That Takes It's Time

A Book That Takes It's Time

I am so excited to be partnering with Workman Publishing over next several months on some special releases by Flow Magazine.  Flow is a magazine that takes its time, celebrating creativity, imperfection, and life’s little pleasures.  In a time when other print media is focusing their energies on their digital properties, Flow Magazine is finding success by fully embracing the physical qualities of paper.  It’s weight, texture, the way it takes color, and the formats and ways in which it can be delivered.  Their newly released book, A Book That Takes Its Time (An Unhurried Adventure in Creative Mindfulness), is a book about mindfulness and a book that inspires mindfulness written by the editors of Flow Magazine along with Irene Smit and Astrid van der Hulst.  It is a book about doing, about experience, and about intention. This book is a great reminder to slow down, breathe deeply, and be present.  It is a book you will want in print since it includes hundreds of interactive paper goodies!  It includes, journals, postcards, stickers, thank you notes, posters, and dozens of other treasures.  I have absolutely enjoyed reading it, and filling out some of the prompts and interactive activities!

A Book That Takes It's Time A Book That Takes It's TimeA Book About Becoming More Mindful and Present

I feel like lately the word busy is brought up in nearly every conversation.  How are things?  Busy.  We are always busy these days.  I don’t know if it is the stage of life I am in or if something has changed, but I really think it is both.  The younger generations feel so much pressure, stress, loneliness, and anxieties.  I feel like it is much more than ever before.  But why?  I think technology is to blame, privilege, lack of being mindful and present and intentional in how we are living.
