Big News for Margo Tantau

Margo was enticed away from her multi-faceted job at Midwest CBK to join innovative, well-respected and highly creative team at Madison Park Group as its new Sr Creative Director.

She can’t wait to flex her creative muscles, and yours, as Madison Park is all about the artist. She’ll be licensing work for paper, gift and home decor products and we’re excited to see what she does!

Margo feels very lucky, as she will be working even more closely with the small and mighty artistic community that she loves so much.

Congratulations Margo!  We’re so happy for you.

Join us for a Book-Along on Periscope!

What’s Periscope? What’s a book-along?

Periscope is live streaming video on your phone (it’s like live TV). It’s a free app you download on your phone (follow me at lillarogers). Then, when I ‘scope (most Tuesday afternoons EST), you’ll get a text notification on your phone. You click it, and you’ll be brought right to the ‘scope on your phone. The cool part is that you and I have a conversation because you can type in your comments which I can read, so it’s very interactive. I love doing them!


Our ‘book-along’ is an idea we had to do a book group on Periscope. We’re going to explore a few concepts in my book, I Just Like to Make Things.


Drawing in my book, I Just Like To Make Things

We’re doing two Book-alongs:

Tuesday afternoon EST, February 23rd Make your own Ritual
Read pages 35 – 38 before the Periscope. I’ll give you 5 tips for creating your own, “get down-to-work, get-into-your-right-brain-creative-brain ritual”.

Tuesday afternoon EST, March 1st Career Tarot
Read and do the exercise on pages 120 – 121. This is a magical/playful way to tune into what you should focus on in the wide world of creative careers. You’ll make a color copy of the page on card stock, and cut out the cards. Then, in the ‘scope, we’ll discuss the results!


We hope you’ll join us!
