creative collaboration. courtney walsh.

my friend, courtney walsh has a way with words. she puts things in perspective. makes you think. dig a little deeper. and she is a bonafide writer with published books and everything. and she is sweet. and open. i love that i have connected with her. she posted these words earlier this week. and it really resonated with me. so i just messaged her and said (because if any of you know me, i randomly put fear of rejection aside and just ask.) hey, can I combine your words with my art and give the print away? because i want to throw some danielle-ish love out there. so here it is. i hope you love it enough to print it as a reminder that you are a good person. and sometimes you just have to move on. (just right-click and save) move on.

Seriously. This week I am happy to share one of my favorite peeps, jen osborn. We are able to have complete conversations using only FB stickers. I love that. Tell me about what is sitting on your art table right now. Who inspired you to create it? What did you see that spurred you into action?  Can we see a picture of it?   Right …
