Pure Beauty & the Project's First Giveaway!

Thank you all so much for being here! I'm truly thrilled to see the community growing so quickly! I was so excited when Jodi from Joyful Girls contacted me to partner up for this awesome giveaway! Joyful Girls is donating one copy of the fantabulous book The Guerilla Art Book by Keri Smith (how awesome and perfect is that?!) to one lucky winner here AND one lucky winner on the Joyful Girls Facebook page. That's right! 2 chances to win! To win here, all you have to do is send in a piece (writing, painting, photograph, etc) to be published as the Found Art Flyer, OR leave a comment telling us your favorite inspirational quote (actually, even if you just say Hi, we will love you and enter you in the drawing!)
Joyful Girls is making it really easy for me to say a big ole THANK YOU for being
on board so early! Here's a l'il picture of it:

Fun, yes?!

So, c'mon, don't be shy! Send me something to post, or simply tell us your favorite inspirational quote in the comments section, and you could be our lucky winner! Pop on over to Joyful Girls to find out how to win there! Comments for the giveaway on this site will close at 6:00pm PDT, on Sunday, June 6th, and the winner will be announced shortly thereafter! Yay!

Well, speaking of fun, the marvelous Jodie has offered this to us and the world for our viewing pleasure! Pop on over to her blog, you'll definitely want to "meet" her.

Is this not completely gorgeous?

And don't forget to go meet Jolie and Sandy, our other artists (so far) this week!

All righty then, you know what to do, peeps! Print and run! And let's be careful out there!

Please join our Facebook page if you haven't already found us and

find me here, and friend me up. I'd honestly love to meet every single one of you personally, but this will have to do.

And please, share, tweet, tell your friends! We want all the cool kids here!

  6. I want to create something for the project soon, but for now I will share a quote!

    "The plain fact is that the planet does not need more successful people. But it does desperately need more peacemakers, healers, restorers, storytellers and lovers of every kind. It needs people who live well in their places. It needs people of moral courage willing to join the fight to make the world habitable and humane. And these qualities have little to do with success as our culture has defined it."
    -David W. Orr

  7. too cool!

    You can get help from teachers, but you are going to have to learn a lot by yourself, sitting alone in a room.
    -Dr. Seuss

  8. That looks like a fabulous book!
