So many fun links to share. Hopefully some of them will move you!

-Jamie Ridler has this great video and post about dancing in response to Gretchen Wegner's Muse Cubes. So fun and fabulous!

-If you want to see some more wonderful movement in action, head on over to Creative Every Day Challenge participant, Shamsi's blog, where she talks about her own movement practice, her work, and she's also got some wonderful videos of her belly dancing!

-Another beautiful belly dancer, Tatty Franey has some gorgeous pictures of her dancing on her site as well. The costumes and colors are so gorgeous, especially as they move! Oh my, super inspiring to me!

-Tammy Vitale has a wonderful discussion on her blog with Molly Gordon about how artist/entrepreneurs can set goals vs. expectations as you move towards your big dreams. If you leave a comment, you'll be entered to win a gold membership to the Self-Employment Summit.

-Vicki of Faint Heart Art is celebrating her 200th post with giveaway of a lovely travel art set. Great for art while you're on the move!

-Pema Chodron has a new book available for pre-order called, Taking the Leap: Freeing Ourselves from Old Habits and Fears. This looks like it would be a great book to continue playing the move theme of this month!

-For a completely different kind of movement inspiration, check out this time-lapse video of NYC that was tweeted by the lovely Kirstin Butler (she's @kirstinbutler on Twitter.)

-There's less than a week left to take advantage of early bird pricing for the Creative Play Workshop, happening in the Boston area on September 19th. Jenn and I would love to see you there. Spots are filling up, so grab yours soon!

-The art above was something I played with during the Art Picnic Workshop on Saturday. We had such a great group participating in this class! One of the participants was actually having her picnic in the backseat of her car while her husband drove. So cool! You can also check out Beckie's experience of the workshop here. The next Picnic will be in October and I'll announce the date soon.

-As I mentioned earlier, this month's theme was especially poignant to me as the hubster and I just purchased our first home. Well, the closing happened today and we are officially homeowners!! I'm super excited to share next month's theme with you, so look out for that announcement tomorrow. In the meantime, keep on movin'!

Good “surf” after a busy day. thanks :-)

Congratulations! I haven’t ever bought a home, but I imagine the only thing better than buying your first home would be knowing that you already have tons of gorgeous, amazing art ready to fill every wall so your house feels like a home as soon as you move in! How exciting!

Congrats on the new home. There is nothing more exciting and scary at the same time.

Thanks so much for mentioning my blog and giveaway.


Leah: thanks for the shout out! Great links here – I’m going to pass along the bellydancing one to a friend who I know will love them!

And congratulations on your new home! How exciting! You will be surprised at how fast time goes. I cannot believe I’ve been in mine for 15 years! And I ove it. There is nothing, absolutely nothing, like having a nest of your own to love. xo

I agree, there is no place like home.

I have lived in my home for 24 years on the 31st of this month. I still love it, I have always been happy here. I wish the same joy and contentment to you and your hubster, Leah.

Congratulations on this huge milestone in your life.

Congratulations on the closing. What a month of moving.

My experience with moving lately seems to be an insistence from the universe that I physically stay in one place while mentally and spiritually move forward.

I’m getting tired of staying in one place. SIgh. In the immortal words of Dory the fish. Just keep swimming.

Congratulations! Enjoy your new home.
