I hope you all had a fantastic start into 2019, it’s gonna be an exciting year for all of us🌹 . We are fully immersed in the process of building the magazine and currently finalizing the page plan, creating content with our team, activating outside contributors and preparing the Kickstarter rewards. . Small steps everyday. I’m hoping you also find the power, even on the crazy days, to do a small step towards working on whatever your favorite unrealized project is. It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop. . Pictured above is the great @huckmal with a Present painting by @lordfolter on a photo by @jeanraclet 🌹
