She Dares Boldly

I am immersed in video editing. Focused. Engrossed.

And slightly ticked off.

I mean seriously? How many times do I have to edit, download the finished version, hit play and discover…

…it still needs some work.

I go back to the file.

keep editing.

and editing.

Until finally, I tell myself, “Perfection is not the goal. Getting your message across is.”

As I’m nearing what I think is the final, final, final version, I’m still struggling with the ‘title’ for the calendar.

I send the two versions of the title page I’ve created to my eldest daughter. “Which one works best?” I ask.

She writes back, “She Dares Boldly.”

She Dares Boldly was not one of the two ideas I’d shared.

But my daughter is right.

It is the ‘perfect’ title.

I go back to the drawing board. Back into my files to create a new title page until finally I remind myself (again), “Perfection is not the goal.”

The moral of the story… Listen to your children!

I am pleased to launch my 2022 She Dares Boldly desk calendar. I’ve had many requests for another #ShePersisted calendar but this year, I’m shifting out beyond the #shepersisted realm into the unlimited possibilities of #SheDaresBoldly.

Some of the images were created as part of my #ShePersisted Series but never used in the calendar so I’ve adopted and adapted them — all the quotes focus on “She Dares…”. The calendar will be available on my Etsy shop soon!

  2. You give ‘us’ women so much joy, power, joie de vivre…. and the video on your new calendar is absolutely worth the trouble and the time spent. It’s a lovely, timely advertising of your stellar artwork. Good luck and good vibes… (that’s what it says on one of my masks! And i wondered why I got so many friendly smiles when I wore it, until I realised why!)
