2016 The Best Nine on Instagram – Leah Quinn Design

As the year winds down (or up depending upon one’s perspective) it’s been a tough and difficult year for so many. My heart and love goes out to so many in our one world. It can be all too easy just to scroll quickly pass, or just be too bothered to be observant to what is going on, all around each and everyone of us.

You can look at it as half-empty, half-filled or, as I do, as opportunities. For change is the only constant. There is still something of substance. I believe and hope you will too, that 2017 will bring good things to light. Let’s hope. 🙂

This next year, I aim to pay it forward in more ways that I have in 2016, even if it is to be bring a simple smile to a stranger’s face. And with creating art, it allows for a meditative state to come about, at least for me – it’s the one time I’m giving back to myself so that I can give more to others. It’s a time for to me unwind, to express, to intend and to explore and try new things. It’s a must for me, as with me helping people whenever I can.

This brings me to sharing with you all, that I am rolling this blog over to my shop at Heart & Soul Apothecary in the beginning of this next year while upgrading my portfolio website & other social media platforms. The other reason, is that I will be able to better share information of my latest artwork, creative in-house workshops and all sorts of other goodies.

So last but not least, here’s to some of my more ‘faved by you designs’ I created from my IG posts for 2016. Following that, are a few photos of items from various print on demand services I had produced with my designs on them and it’s so wild to see one’s work come to life on the surface of a product!

I have got to give huge thanks and warm hugs over to the creative teams at MakeArtThatSells.com & MakeItInDesign.com for the continued inspiration I receive to further my creative career!
I’ll see you in 2017!

And to my fellow designers, Artists & ‘Classmates’ & MATSies, “We did it!” It’s been such an amazing & inspiring journey to see everyone’s art and creativity soar this year, I am so looking forward to seeing and being witness to what our creativity unveils for us all in this next year!

<3 Hugs Leah

Artists For Love

Feel free to download this image to place upon your wall or to share your solidarity. Right click to save image to your desktop.

Today’s post is about knowing where you stand. I’m sharing that I stand collectively as a ‘We’ as in ‘We Stand With You’. And which of ‘you’ am I referring to? – well frankly, ALL of You! 🙂

So much has been on the news, that people have turned it off, unfriended pals on their FB page, good people have been so turned off entirely to the world of politics that they have started, even more than usual, to go hiding in their own little bubbles.

By the way, Bubbles will burst eventually.

This is not a time to hide, but to unite, confidently and reach out to other like-minded folks whose sense of solidarity is as important to them as keeping our mother earth alive, healthy and well, as we only have one of her.

And there’s only one of you.

Be inspired today by this gentle artistic movement by visiting Kelly Ray Roberts website to learn about Kelly’s take on all this, as well as how other incredible artists like Flora Bowley are showing their solidarity.

Then go explore how you feel about what is going on and learn how you can help heal your own heart by creating your own little piece of art like I did above. We are one.
