Thinking about the idea of “quintessential” and this image popped up because @maryvannote embodies this concept. Photo by @earthavision_ Hemp Silk Cape made by me 161 more days of creations for #swank365

This morning I knew I needed to get out of my apartment and go find inspiration. I loved the grand opening afternoon at the new #salesforcetransitcenter 🌍 The world is getting smaller in the best way! We are global citizens and taking on the responsibility of coexisting with class and character. 💕 After the fabulous afternoon of high vibration diversity, I wondered around the surrounding streets and loved the beautiful juxtaposition of the old and new architecture in every direction! I love the energy of change and preservation side by side. The balance feels right and good to me.

Here’s a dragon table detail from my art furniture archives of 2009 collaged with a photo of that table in context at Swankety Swank 2.0 on Divisadero of the same time period and a later pic of me stretching and “Ohm-ing” at my favorite Pleiadian tree where I get many great downloads in Alamo Square. Oh and of course I’m wearing #hemp trimmed in neon vegan chiffon with leggings by @bethdittofash which I love 💕 176 more days of creations #swank365 #fatandfree #iLUVsf #designerlife

This morning was hairy. I awoke in a funk with every fiber of my being resisting my inner task master monkey mind’s insistence that my video editing is not far enough along and I’d better get it done Starting NOW. I did not. Instead I did QiGong and got centered. I made a hot and nutrient rich breakfast. I ate with mindfulness and appreciation. I handled some personal emails and tasks. I left the house. I mailed a package and strolled around Haight Street and ate lunch at my fav @bluefrontcafesf and got my weekend groceries at @gussmarket This is my creative post for the day cuz it represents the video creation I am working on currently with ease and flow Because I listened to my gut instead of monkey mind. 191 (more) days of creations #swank365 #videoediting #creativeprocess #kickstarter

Sometimes life is so over-the-top-great, I can barely contain myself. After getting art supplies in North Beach (⭐️SO to @artistcraftsmansupply ⭐️) I wondered down the road and around the corner and came to this adorable French style cafe and dreamed up the perfect scenario for my kickstarter video and now $900 is going to show up so that I can make it happen and raise $15k for hemp trousers production. It's time for next level. The first step was to get location permission and that happened immediately. I can see the momentum flowing along like a snowball rollin down a hill and I am riding it with ease. So interesting that a simple stroll of heart's joy leads to magnificent results. I took a Lyft line home. I love those because I know how fun it is to meet people who are vibrating on your same level. (When your level is a happy one🤣) So I get in and can barely contain my excitement for this great idea that happened and the steps that already moved it forward and the guy in the car just got off work and is about to go out with friends to dinner. He tells me how excited he is at this moment cuz he's about to embark on a week vaca to Mexico on an amazing island retreat to see family he hasn't seen in a long while. I tell him I'm excited also to go to Seattle next month and he says he's moving there soon! Also, the ride to the store was with a male driver who wants to do more modeling and I'm ready to work with more males again. My synchronicity is off the charts right now. I'm loving this fire Aries energy 🔥🌟⚡️Also, I'm not gonna dim my light to make people more comfortable with me 🤗 #fillinginthegrid #inthevortex #iluvsf #hempineverycloset #happyhappyjoyjoy #haveyourcakeandeatittoo #northbeach

Having such a marvelous day flowing one thing into the next and feeling gratitude. Then I find myself here on this corner, the sacred place that called me here upon my first visit to SF 20 years ago, probably on this very day. ...the up spiral continues!

Just finished my fashion show video and uploaded it to the Swankety Swank YouTube channel 2 weeks after the night it happened. (Go there and check it out and subscribe or wait and I'll post a quicker taste on IG in a few days) I edited it and wrote the soundtrack. Also I made everything I'm wearing here in my celebratory photo that very same evening: organic cotton stretch leggings, hemp top and asymmetrical butterflies jacket. 273 (more) days of Creation #swank365 #sustainablefashion #365daysofcreativity #fatandfree #allsizes #designer

#tbt This is around 2007 when a photographer took this for his school project documenting various artists in their environments.

Today's creative post: a "commercial" that I made last month for @swanketyswank with the adorable @tiff_exclusive 🌏 If you're following my biz page and have already seen it, forgive me for this. I did yoga, ecstatic dance, coffee with friends, and Black Panther movie: so life was too busy today to make a brand new one. Plus, she is so fab and I wrote the music and created the video and I'm proud of this one. Oh, I also created the hemp dress she's wearing. That one is sold. 320 (more) days of Creation #swank365

I'm feeling this Rare Blood Blue Super Moon Lunar Eclipse energy! I've had all kinds of feels and epiphanies and also made some bold moves and written declarations. And then I drew this while listening to an Om Chant and drinking tea this evening. I must walk between and under these 2 buildings every time I visit my friend and when I looked up and saw how it framed this special lunar event, I had to render it in pencil. 339 (more) days of creations! #swank365 #artbyyabette
