Tova’s Muchness Challenge – Day 16 – It’s a happy headshot…sorta

So, I did not win a scholarship to Marie Forleo’s B-school. That kinda bummed me out and I was gonna post a headshot of me making a bummed out face, but all of them looked really, really unattractive, and totally not cute. So I decided I need another picture. Hmmmmmm…..Anyway, I made a decision to invest in ME and The Muchness and I paid my tuition and joined the program!!! The classes don’t even start for a few weeks and already I’ve been empowered and excited and today I was SOOOO productive and last night I skyped for an hour with the founder of Still Standing Magazine about an AMAAAAAAYZING contest idea that I’ve been tossing around in my cluttered head for a year that now may WILL actually happen for real and it’s totally getting me all pumped up!!!

OK, so, when you join B-school you get access to these private little areas online where inspiring women (and a couple of dudes) who are all business owners who want to change the world for the better get together and encourage and empower and I am like a 7 year old and totally need the encouragement and positive feedback of others or I lose steam, and you know NOTHING gets me pumped more than knowing that The Muchness resonates with someone and that they “get it” right off the bat….

So,a woman on the site wrote how she saw this site and is “OBSESSED” with it and needs to find her Muchness and she’s totally gonna do the challenge and I got so happy and took a picture of my happy face.

Not the bestest pic, but A LOT better than my bummed out face.

Love & Muchness, Tova

    Muchness IS addictive, she’ll be hooked and can’t wait to see!

    Love the happy face, but love the art behind you even more! I love framing my kids artwork and hanging it, they’re the best!

      That is SO not kids artwork!! hahahaha – I wish my 4 year old was so advanced!
      I started my career as a toy designer / inventor and I had the honor of working at a tiny little toy inventing company right out of school that was founded by a woman named Judy Albert. She was the designer behind the ORIGINAL Cabbage Patch Dolls and I started working at her home-based company shortly after she passed away. Those pictures were hand drawings of a toy concept dated 1972 by an artist names Laszlo that were in the archives there that I just fell in love with. I REALLY want to get them archival frames but that’s expensive… There are 9 of them framed around the room. They’re quirky and colorful and weirdly happy making… and one or two are a bit creepy…

    Okay….should I be embarrassed??? LOL
    I am clearly not that informed on toy art…lol. 🙂 Okay, and even more embarrassed, I just told Gabhán all of this and he says “Cheesus…they’re DESIGNS, not toy art”. Told you!

    Either way they’re really cool! Although I can’t speak for the creepy ones…lol

      You should not be embarrassed. I honestly don’t know if they were art for a concept for toys, or just art with a toy-like sensibility…. though they all have an element of extending limbs and stuff. One day I’ll post a pic of them after I get them framed nicer. 🙂
