Can you believe it has been 4 weeks since I started this newsletter? I still receive emails or greetings from some of you telling me how much you appreciate getting it! I am so grateful! It means a lot to me that this newsletter uplifts you, brings a smile to your face, or simply warms your heart! Thank you, thank you!

Do you like this format better? I am testing a different service and it gives me more options to make the newsletter pretty. Let me know!

I hope your week is going well. I have many things to share with you on this issue. First off, let me congratulate Claudia on being my first official customer on one of my online shops: Well Chosen Letters/Threadless. Thank you Claudia!

So, onto my weekly nugget of wisdom. What did I learn this week? I had a type of epiphany this week. I was sitting at the pool watching my kids practice and this thought popped into my head: start fresh. It was a crystal clear thougth but I wondered: how do we do that? Easier said than done in many situations and sometimes with some of the people in our lives. Nevertheless, we must try. Every day is a new day that comes with a promise. And His mercies are new every morning. And though it is sometimes difficult to think of starting fresh in a big way, maybe there are small ways in which we can start fresh. Maybe a call or email to that one person, one small change in our eating or exercise habits, or maybe it is watching less TV or five more minutes with the kids outside or reading to them. You pick your area. Just try to do one thing that would allow you to work towards getting a fresh start. Remember that some starts are fast and others slow. There is no timer on this. Just do one thing. And becuase I love freebies, here is your link to this week's wallpaper. Sorry I did not make it in different sizes this week.

Updates
  • New show: I will be having a show during the month of August at Optera Creative here in Mobile, AL. The reception will be on Friday August 11th from 6-8:30 pm. If you are around, please come and visit! They will provide food and drinks. Their address is 5 North Jackson Street, Mobile, AL 36602. And their number 251.287.0958.
  • New store front: I am testing another online shop for creatives. Check it out and let me know what you think: https://artistocracy.com/alma-hoffmann.
  • Book: Some of you know that I am writing a book about sketching. What you don't know is that I have been writing like crazy since I have been able to type more lately. This is good. What you don't know is that I am testing the waters with other publishers. The publisher I am in conversations with wanted a sample chapter, which I just finished and emailed to them. I picked the most difficult one because I rather get that one out there for edits sooner rather than later. Wish me luck and hopefully this will work!
  • Shop! Don't forget the places to get my work:
    Etsy
    Threadless

    Aristocracy
