The Goddess Chronicles: An International Traveling Art Journal

This is my very first post for Blogtoberfest. Wish me luck ya'll.

Finally it's here!

I know you have been waiting patiently for the collaboration project of the year, but wait no more!

The Goddess Chronicles: An International Traveling Art Journal is now a digital book is complete and ready for you to order. 
The artwork was created by 44 women from around the world. Each of the 64 pages is infused with love and is a visual feast for the eyes. 

Thank you for your patience and your support. It has been a true labor of love. 

Since putting this dream out into the world I have received so much love and joy from each and every participant. 

I wanted to share a few of the beautiful words I have received…
“My heart jumped out of my chest at the thought of joining your community and contributing .... I would love so very much to be a part of your project and feel the weaving Speak to us all.” Robina D’Arcy-Fox

The Goddess Chronicles Journal is a fantastic idea and dream that is going to be a reality! I would love to create some art for a book that gets passed on to future goddesses. What wisdom we can share! I already have some ideas! I hope you will consider me as a part of your dream.” Jetta Heinen
Here are the beautiful women artists that participated in this year's Goddess Chronicles Art Journal...

If you have just heard of this project and have found my webpage, I am so happy that you did! Let me take you on the magical carpet ride that has been The Goddess Chronicles. Imagine a deep yearning from within your soul. Days and nights pass by knowing that you want to do more and give more. Think about the skills and talents that you have and how they can be used to do good things in the world...

That was me in late 2012. Deeply craving the collaboration with other artists and the need to positively affect a local community of girls and women is how The Goddess Chronicles began. I sat with the idea for a couple of months and wondered just who would be interested in such a collaboration. A few times, I talked myself right out of moving forward because of the "gremlin" who told me nobody would care. 

One day as I bathed my 3 year-old twin nieces, I sat back to let them play in the tub. I giggled as I watched them splash around in pure joy. Their little lights beaming reminded me of a commitment to live life with intention, purpose, love and faith. 

Of course nothing went as I planned it. How silly to think that I could control such a magnificent force. In the beginning the artists totaled 71. I had no idea how I would logistically manage it but I said YES to each woman who was called to the work, how could I not? It was a massive coordination project on my part and the upfront costs were more than I had planned. Initially I had planned to buy one journal and have it rotate around to each person. This was now impossible since there were well over 70 interested from different parts of the world.

I decided to by journals and mail them within regions of the world to save artists shipping costs. From San Antonio to Australia was super expensive but I knew in my heart that it wasn't about the money or the time I spent, it was about affecting real change in the world and it was about showing Justice and Lyric to DREAM BIG! Journal books went out within the United States, Canada, South America, Europe, Netherlands, Spain, Australia and Israel. Some books were lost in the mail, I even lost some pages myself during a move over the summer months, but in the end... it was beautiful!

Here is a video from that glorious time!


If you ask any of the participants of this project they will tell you how deeply moved they have been as a result of committing to producing a page or two for The Goddess Chronicles. That in itself is reward enough for me, especially from women who called me paralyzed with fear because they did not consider themselves artists.  They now have a different perspective on what it means to create your soul's artwork. I tear up just thinking about what has manifested as a result of my own dreams.

The theme each artist expressed in this traveling art journal was to inspire young and old; girls and women alike with messages from the heart to 
DREAM BIG! Many times we can get lost or overwhelmed in life. It is easy to forget about the beauty that is present in each and everyday. The Goddess Chronicles is a book that vibrates with the intention to never give up on your dreams! Perhaps you will find that this book speaks to your niece, daughter, best friend, grandmother, mother, aunt… any woman. If so, look below to purchase your very own copy. Part of the proceeds will be donated to Girls Inc. of San Antonio.
