lisa congdon, a glorious freedom, AND a giveaway!

Thank you so much to everyone who entered! The winner of this lovely book is …. PAMELA HASTINGS! If you’re not Pamela, no worries, I have lots of other amazing give aways coming up in the next couple of months!


Well, she’s done it again. A gorgeous, inspiring, wisdom-filled book has just been released by artist, illustrator, and author Lisa Congdon! It’s titled, “A Glorious Freedom – Older Women Leading Extraordinary Lives”, and it is exactly that! Quotes, interviews, illustrations all celebrating the lives of some very awe-inspiring women. Here’s the gist:

“The glory of growing older is the freedom to be more truly ourselves—with age we gain the liberty to pursue bold new endeavors and worry less about what other people think. In this richly illustrated volume, bestselling author and artist Lisa Congdon explores the power of women over the age of forty who are thriving and living life on their own terms. Profiles, interviews, and essays from women—including Vera Wang, Laura Ingalls Wilder, Julia Child, Cheryl Strayed, and many more—who’ve found creative fulfillment and accomplished great things in the second half of their lives are lavishly illustrated and hand-lettered in Congdon’s signature style.” ~ Chronicle Books

This beauty is now on shelves, and it just so happens that I have ONE to give away to ONE of you! Please leave a comment below and I’ll draw one winner on Monday October 16th, 2017. Good luck! ps. Here is Lisa’s upcoming West Coast book tour schedule if you’d like to have your book signed/meet her:

  41. Therese /// 10.13.2017 /// 11:27am

    So beautiful, so fabolous. Such a talented, admirable illustrator!

  42. Diana Castro /// 10.13.2017 /// 11:34am

    I’d love to have it. It was so mind-changing to me the first time I saw a woman not getting told what was going to become of her life by the standards of age.
    i don’t know if everyone has this fear of life being just too short, I believe we all have it at some degree, but I had such a fear that life would be ove as soon as I’d turn 40 where there was this silent rule that you have to refrain from everything youthful, from change and strating over and being sexy and living to what your mind wants at the moment, that freedom, it would all be restricted. And the first time I saw her… an elderly woman dressed in jeans and a white simple top, dancing at a bar with her eyes closed, with such easiness, being beautiful and amazing, life just got so much bigger and filled with possibilities. It was like a sentence had been revoked.

    I’m an illustrator myself but with this book I become also, a jealous curator.
    I dont know if this is going to be a random selection, but I’m putting all my energy on bithday’s luck to help me out on this one, though it would have to come early since it’s on the 17th haha.

    Thank you, Danielle, for showing it to us.

  43. Ria geerdink /// 10.13.2017 /// 11:36am

    Inspirational and gorgeous illustrated! Hope that I can order one in The Netherlands?

  44. Ngaio Blackwood /// 10.13.2017 /// 11:43am

  50. Aimie /// 10.13.2017 /// 12:19pm

    I am part of said group and definitely trying to live the rest of my life as full of creativity and joy as I can. It’s too bad many of us hold ourselves back when we’re younger out of insecurities or doubts. Can’t wait to read this and what a great gift for girlfriends, too, especially with the holidays approaching!

    Lisa has been a huge inspiration to me for years I’m so excited about this book!

  57. Marla Stills /// 10.13.2017 /// 3:00pm

    Nothing like a smidge of cancer and the specter of my youngest child leaving for college to make me reassess what I’ll be doing going forward. I didn’t pick up a paintbrush until I was 45 years old and when I did it was as if I’d been struck by lightning.

    I’d love to read about other women who have taken leaps of faith and creativity!

  58. Emily /// 10.13.2017 /// 3:09pm

  70. Tracy Breyfogle /// 10.13.2017 /// 7:41pm

    and showing them to folks but work and life are work and life.
    I’ll buy this book regardless, either for myself
    or for a friend. But, really, this
    is the book I need. So glad it is
    out there.

  71. melanie huttner /// 10.13.2017 /// 8:05pm

    This book is lovely!

  74. Krystel Camilo /// 10.13.2017 /// 9:01pm

    I bought “In the Company of Women” by Grace Bonney last year and I can’t wait to add “A Glorious Freedom – Older Women Leading Extraordinary Lives.” I’m 32 and finally starting to fight for me,
    to be advocate for myself so I can lead my own extraordinary life. This book, hearing from those who are/have paved the way for me puts a smile on my face 🙂 I can’t wait to read it, share it, gift it and travel with it!

  75. Melanie Rydings /// 10.13.2017 /// 10:02pm

    A lovely book!

  77. Booboo /// 10.13.2017 /// 11:50pm

    Recently I was starting to feel overwhelmed by the realization of my own aging. Above everything that is scary (look at all those wonderful young people doing everything better and faster and taking jobs and opportunities away from me!) I have this – I don’t give a toss about the others – attitude (attitude unimaginable to me in my 20) and it feels really good.
    I would absolutely love to read this book.

  78. Claudia Kerr /// 10.14.2017 /// 12:35am

    Would absolutely love the chance to win this lovely, inspiring book I am always looking to positive role models to help me through my work and tough times. This feels like another important source of positive energy and beautiful illustration to feel good when reading ✨

  79. Janna /// 10.14.2017 /// 12:48am

    Wow. I’m excited about this book for so many reasons.

  80. Áine Atara MacDermott /// 10.14.2017 /// 1:03am

    This book looks divine! Gorgeous to look at but I’m excited to read it too

  81. Katherine Penney /// 10.14.2017 /// 1:07am

    Not being as young as I used to be, doesn’t seem so bad when there are role models like this women to keep me on track. I’d love to read /see and know more!

  82. knosila /// 10.14.2017 /// 1:23am

    I am looking forward to this! Next march I will become 50 and right now I am working on my portfolio for becoming a portrait photographer next year and finally leave my hated pay job. But right now I do not feel like being an extraordinary person at all, I need to change this. Lisa Congdon’s words and espcially her fantastic illustrations will be a great inspiration on my way! Thanks for this introduction!

  86. Gail /// 10.14.2017 /// 2:09am

    Having had to concede I am now an older woman, I would love to know how to live an extraordinary life… 🙂

  90. Jane Moore Houghton /// 10.14.2017 /// 3:23am

    I am a fifty-two-year-old woman who is fighting every day to make a career for herself in art. I am currently enrolled in a local community college (same as my 19-year-old son!) to get a certificate in graphic design so that I can improve my design skills. It feels great to be in classes with young adults who are my children’s ages and feel empowered as someone with life experience and confidence. I have a lot more years to contribute to this world and I’m not tired yet! Lisa Congdon is a big inspiration to me and my art practice and this book would be such a gift to my fighting spirit! Thank you, Danielle, for this opportunity!

  91. Kim /// 10.14.2017 /// 3:38am

    Pick me, pick me!!! I’m 48 and loving it. I’ve finally reached a point in my life where no one gets to tell me who or what I should be. It took a long time for me to feel free and empowered, and I’m looking forward to what the next 48 will bring. I’m really looking forward to reading this book!

  92. Jill /// 10.14.2017 /// 4:37am

    I can think of ten beautiful women who I can’t wait to give this book to! A few are just starting to blaze their own trails, and maybe they will gain confidence—the others want to do something that gives them freedom and fulfillment—they need a little inspiration. Thanks!!

  93. matheus /// 10.14.2017 /// 4:47am

(PS Danielle , you’re an inspiration as well ! Congrats for quitting your secure day job !)

    Perfect timing for your give away as I’ve approached 40 this year. I would say I was an early bloomer as an artist who has been on a long term hibernation while raising daughters and fostering a teenager. I feel like I’m in a new season of life and ready to reawaken my creativity and start painting and creating again without fear and with a new perspective. Thank you for the giveaway.

    Just graduated art school this year, it was a rough ride, but now I am finding a whole new freedom in my own work. And I feel that I am getting more inspiration when I do what I love and someday I hope to find a “glorious freedom” in my own artwork! But for now I am searching for inspiration and motivation. And you are helping me get motivated a lot with you beautiful blog ✨ Thank you!
