i’m heading out of town for the next week. please wish me love and luck as i spontaneously jump into my first teaching gig. it will be wonderful, but i’d be lying if i didn’t say i was nervous with a capital N. i hope i haven’t forgotten to pack anything. paintbrushes. check. gel medium. check. collage papers. check. glittery eyes (thank you, jonatha!). check. heart + soul + butterflies. definitely.

i think i’ll have access to the internet while i’m away, so i’ll be sure to check in over here in a couple of days. in the meantime, i wanted to list a couple of announcements:

* my friend brene (whose book is seriously changing my life, but more on that later) posted an interview with me today on her site. i love her interview format and was thrilled when she asked me to do it (thank you, brene!). it also includes a giveaway 🙂

* for those of you in the portland area, i’ll be participating in art+soul’s author signing event on friday of THIS week. bring your book (or you can purchase one there) and i’ll be happy to sign it. there will be several authors at this event, including my friends stephanie lee and tonia davenport! more information about when and where and who can be found right here.

* i’ll also be selling all sorts of goodies (prints, stationery, books, etc) at art+soul’s vendor nite on saturday of this week. please come and say hello as i’d love to see you there! details on where and when can be found here.

* i’m feeling really called to say thank you to each and every person who have sent the loveliest emails regarding the book. i love hearing your stories of how you’re rediscovering your creative wings. how you’re inspired to start crafting again. i especially love the emails about how you didn’t expect the book to be deep and thought provoking – these really make me smile. and all of the images your attaching of your whisper journals, your patchwork girls, your affirmation paintings – it’s enough to make me beam with gratitude and light for years to come. thank you. thank you, too, to all of you who have posted about Taking Flight on your blogs, who have posted reviews, who have told your friends. i can’t tell you how much this means to me. you guys are the bomb 🙂

more soon….

Hi, I'm Kelly Rae Roberts!

Before I picked up my first paintbrush at the age of 30, I was a medical social worker. I followed my whispers and started playing with paint and everything changed.

Now I’m a full-time artist, author and Possibilitarian, who helps women explore and nourish their creative souls.
