My Lefty Drawing is Published in the NZ Creative Cronies 2015 Moon Calendar!

Kardin by Kathy CrabbeMy 'lefty' drawing titled Kardin has just been published in the 2015 Moon Calendar Astrological Diary put out by the New Zealand Creative Cronies, a group of three astrologers: Minerva, Robyn and Arafelle who live on co-operatively owned land in the Far North of New Zealand. I find that this Calendar is similar to my other favorite moon calendar, the We'Moon Datebook but with a Southern Hemisphere emphasis such as the times listed in NZ clock time. I also love how each New Moon in the book has a full page with a 'New Moon Map' which is a graphic image of planetary positions relative to Aotearoa (New Zealand) and the Southern Hemisphere, at the exact moment of the Moon/Sun conjunction. I also like how each day is accompanied by a phrase, affirmation, or bit of wisdom. Plus I LOVE the artwork which is so interesting; they feature abstract work, figurative fairytale illustrations by Aralyn Doiron plus several nature paintings - so refreshing and innovative rather than simply more super realistic and highly detailed Goddess Art. I also LOVE that they pay their artists as well as sending us a copy of the Diary!

I must say that I am quite partial to anything Kiwi because my brother, Gary Crabbe lives on the South Island of New Zealand where he is a viticulturist growing grapes and making world class Pinot Noir wine with the help of his wife Lynn at Coal Pit Vineyard.

Kathy Crabbe author box ABOUT KATHY

Kathy Crabbe is a Creative Soul Guide, artist, author and educator. Originally from Canada, Kathy currently lives and works in the wine country of Temecula. Kathy created the Awaken Your Creative Soul class after spending 7 years drawing a Creative Soul Deck using her non dominant left hand. This awakened Kathy’s intuitive, creative soul in new ways and inspired her to help others follow their dreams. Since then Kathy has given over 1000 intuitive readings using her Creative Soul ‘lefty’ deck as well as teaching at the Wise Woman University. Her art has appeared in galleries, museums, magazines and on HGTV. Kathy formed a writer’s group in Temecula to share her ‘lefty’ art and poetry which she also published in a zine featuring local writers. Kathy and a life sized Lefty were invited to speak at an International Women’s Day event in Los Angeles that the LA Times dubbed “self esteem boosting” which was almost as dreamy as hearing her favorite song performed by Michelle Shocked in the background as she spoke.

I am beautiful in my own way

This beauty is killing me by Kathy Crabbe High heels, bikini waxes, botox, boob jobs, nips and tucks, fat suction, girdles, bleach, dyes, injections, starvation, bulimia, the list of beauty treatments, or rather, torture treatments that we endure to 'look good' go on and on and are absolutely insane, not to mention expensive.

We all have our excuses for why it's worth it and we endure. Well, this card (from my upcoming Lefty Affirmation Deck) is asking you to be honest and question ALL of it.  Make a list of all the beauty treatments and accessories that you use and that you know, deep down are not good for you even though society and your vanity tell you otherwise.  Discuss this list with other women and start making choices in YOUR favour putting YOUR health, wholeness and holiness first.

Affirmation: "I am beautiful in my own way."

The text and image above are from my upcoming Lefty Affirmation Deck.  Prints of "This beauty is killing me" can be purchased in my shop.

About the Leftys

The Lefty Series was painted with Kathy’s non-dominant left hand; the intuitive hand. While turning forty she lost all interest in painting with her right hand because frankly she got bored. It was time to explore new worlds and be creative in new ways.

 "Drawing with my left hand was slow going at first, but felt right in this fast paced, hyperkinetic world we  live in. I painted with watercolors because of their fluid simplicity which best expresses the Lefty soul.”

The Lefty Series has evolved over the years through zines and chapbooks, oracle readings, a Hollywood appearance with Michelle Shocked, museum shows, awards etc, but, most importantly, the Leftys show us how to trust our intuition, break through creative blocks, and take a chance to speak up for what matters most.

“Juicy Alive! Your Leftys make me feel like I’m not alone. They restore something in me…make me feel sane again." ~ Tangerine
