Adam Wenz receiving his black belt at last night's belt promotion. Adam has been training for over a decade. He's developed a smooth game that makes it seem like he is effortlessly transitioning from position to position. He teaches our Saturday afternoon beginner BJJ classes. You can tell every student that takes his class becomes a better practioner from his teaching. We're honored that he trains at Team Renzo Gracie Denville #bjj #blackbelt #beltpromotion #promotion #teamrenzogracie…

Started a brand new sketchbook last night at my Ladies Drawing Night group // I've decided to play a bit more with paint & mixed media this coming year in my book so I graduated to this big Moleskine with thick watercolor paper (I used to have one of these big Moleskines back in 2012 but haven't drawn in it in years) // I'll still draw in my smaller sketchbook too but excited about playing in this larger format with different mediums #ladiesdrawingnight #lcongdonsketchbook by lisacongdon

Today's #BetterLetteringCourse #LetterYourGrowthMarch prompt is...How I've grown "in my heart." Though I take pride in the fact that I'm a feeler with lots of deep emotions one thing I've learned over the years is that if I'm not careful sometimes this can lead to carrying around a heavy heart. It took time but I've learned since then when to let go of some of that "heart baggage" as soon as it's no longer serving me. Things that don't matter roll off my back much more and I'm able to still…

Your guest Instagrammer Yuko from @honeyberrystudios here! On my afternoon walk yesterday I also noticed daffodils are up! They're so bright and cheerful I love making drawings with layers of Sakura Koi Brush Pens and adding lines/details with a Micron pen at the end. #pigmamicron #sakurakoi by sakuraofamerica
