It’s time for another Quote Up! I love Thanksgiving so much. It is a time of year when everyone (hopefully) sets aside a little more time than normal to think about be grateful. It is also marks the beginning of the holiday season, which to me is one of the most beautiful times of the entire year.
So I’m hailing this new season with a few amazing quotes to inspire you every day! Take a moment to think about each of them. Skimming over something potentially mind changing is only a waste of time! 😉

It’s a pretty cool trend. Drawing every day stimulates the mind and helps it become more creative.
Obviously, I haven’t shared anything for the first half of October. Mostly because I’ve been busy working on a new mini course that will be coming out sometime in the near future. I’m not setting any deadlines yet, but I’ll keep y’all updated! That doesn’t necessarily mean I didn’t create any ink projects (though I’ll admit it wasn’t every day!) during that time.
