Jewel Yourself…

“Jewel Yourself”, started when we watched a short video from different women talking about being.. Being kinder to others, Being lost in the moment, Being at peace with the world and with our self, Being kinder to yourself… In our everyday lives we are busy with living instead of being. You know how our minds work, one moment you read something inspiring and you think ” Yes, I should do that”… and the next moment your are lost on your daily activities.

There are lots of ready mantras that we could use but we needed something that will be personal, will work as a sign, and will be easy associated to an object. So, the word “Jewel” came to us. Obviously because we love jewels so much and, because we love the meaning of the word “jewel” which according to the dictionary it is also “a person resembling a jewel in preciousness, brilliance, etc…” (http://www.thefreedictionary.com/jewel). Then the word “yourself” just paired.

For us the phrase “Jewel Yourself” goes beyond the beautification of the body and includes the beautification of the soul. That is how this little phrase captured our minds and hearts and became our everyday moto: to “Jewel Ourselves”.

We hope that through our “Jewel Yourself” series of articles, videos, books and photos that inspired us,  you will be inspired, too, and “Jewel Yourself” every single day.

 

With love

About the Sammamish Arts Fair

The Sammamish Arts Fair is an annual Arts Fair, which is now in its 11th year. It has grown in reputation to be one of the most anticipated arts events on the Eastside, and it will feature some of the best jury selected local artists in our area. When Forbes recently ranked Sammamish as the number one friendliest town in America, they made mention of our annual arts fair.

Come and visit with the artists, see their work and learn about their creative process. Inside the City Hall building, the highest quality and variety of fine art will be available for purchase, and will include original works of art such as; paintings, jewelry, mixed media, encaustic art, glass arts, ceramics, printmaking, woodcarving, photography and textile art.  Along with the visual arts, will be musical arts, performance arts and children’s activities for the whole family.  Look for things to see, hear and do in the city hall, the library and the plaza between the two buildings.  Check out the program for more info.

The Arts Fair is a community-wide cultural art experience, which is produced in partnership with the participating Artists and the Sammamish Arts Commission. The artists and community volunteers completely create and run the Arts Fair.

Sponsorship is grateful received from the City of Sammamish, the Sammamish Arts Commission and 4Culture.
