Balance motherhood and creative pursuits! Women and new mothers are constantly encountering the message that they can never do anything for themselves once they have children. This conversational book is like brunch with girlfriends, offering you friendly advice, community encouragement, and tips on carving time out for creative endeavors. Meet women who not only defied the "no more time to be an artist" stereotype but found motherhood gave them focus, confidence, and efficiency in their art and creative endeavors. Becoming mothers renewed a sense of purpose in their creative pursuits, and by prioritizing this need to create, they became more patient and better mothers to their children. Interview questions cover a range of topics, including early days and creative work, community and vulnerability, and tactics for regular creative practice. Whether you read it front to back or pick it up for a 5-minute dose of encouragement, this is the encouragement you can lean on for balancing family life and art in your own way.

Stranger Things is characterised by having the heart and essence of the mythical series and films of the 80’s, from The Goonies, Ghostbusters, Back to the Future, The Neverending Story, and so many more, which were authentic icons for that generation. The series has the same breath of fresh air as the past that it wants to reflect, since the first episode it has managed to captivate our hearts. From its aesthetics, music on tape cassettes, arcades, the first malls... For deciding the title and font of the series, the Duffer brothers were inspired by a Stephen King novel, Needful Things. Once's role is similar to the character played by Drew Barrymore in the movie Firestarter, also King's novel.

"In this book, many of the depictions of what a girl gang is are not the most admirable. They are often belligerent, rude, violent, and lewd. But it sure does make for great art and entertainment.

With posters, logos, fan art, pinups, and more, Roller Derby / Girl Gang serves as a scrapbook of rough-and-tumble, fun-loving girls banding together to take on the world.

Shadows are said to be part of unlit corners of a space where creatures lurk and mystery dwells. They may also manifest on a personal or even global level to convey demons, fear, or anxieties. In a broader sense, shadows signify unresolved trauma and bring it to the forefront of our consciousness as aspects of ourselves that we can finally acknowledge -- the skeletons, mummies, spiders, bats, crows, and ghosts we hide. This Tarot deck and accompanying guidebook provide you with the vital creative tools you need to access your shadows and reveal hidden truths. Alongside traditional Tarot symbolism and meanings, shadow aspects of our archetypal personalities are portrayed as 78 playful and quirky ink-and-watercolour creature cards that offer insight and guidance into our deepest selves. The book consists of a detailed introduction to shadows and shadow work, card meanings, reflection questions, and easy-to-follow spreads to help you discover, contemplate, and integrate previously unacknowledged aspects of your life and personality. For beginners as well as seasoned readers and shadow workers, discover imaginative solutions to everyday challenges as well as complex or concealed conditions. Is it time for you to stop hiding from your shadows?

Repeat this mantra to yourself whenever you’re feeling anxious: “I flow from a place of grace.” Peace. Gratitude. Concentration. Stillness. Serenity. Composure. Focus. Whether they’re honing their powers of concentration (have you ever seen anyone focus on something so intently as a mutt with a bone?), being in the moment (a snooze is so much more satisfying when you really appreciate the snooze), or taking time to explore their senses (all those bottoms aren’t going to sniff themselves), dogs are paragons of mindfulness. So maybe they’re not always quite as composed or graceful as they’d like, but at least they’re trying – and we could all learn a lot from these enlightened pups.
