Author Spotlight: Rhonda Hull

by Vervante •

We're constantly amazed by the clever, unique, brilliant and beautiful books and products our customers create. Today we’d like to introduce you to Rhonda Hull, Ph.D., a seasoned author, artist, speaker and guide. Through the conscious use of the energy found in words+art+collaboration, Rhonda is a powerful advocate of whole-hearted living and to support her message she has created a series of Keepsake Treasures products that are easy to share, easy to carry, and always stay in your heart. 

The story of Rhonda's Keepsake Treasures

Q: What inspired you to create these products?

I have long been some form of teacher, mentor and guide, but neglected to see my lettering and calligraphy as a worthwhile part of who I am and what I offer. 

Walking the path of cancer with my barely 2-year-old grand-nephew (now 14), followed by becoming actively involved in the ongoing journey of my grandson when diagnosed with autism at age 3 (now 13), and then facing my own health challenges as a result of the stress of it all, I learned the power and importance of self-care, and in having a circle of ones who you love and who love you unconditionally. I learned that the things we think are so important become less so, and that love really is the answer to every question. Every moment can be a keepsake moment, even the messy ones. 

I knew it was time to bring my art forward as a way to touch hearts and make a difference. The importance of savoring even the bittersweet moments is what I attempt to reflect in my products, dedicated to uplift and offer encouragement to those maneuvering the meaningful and messy moments of life.

Q: What advice would you give other aspiring authors or creatives?

Dare to believe it’s possible. Take at least one step beyond your comfort zone. Dream not only outside the box, but as if there is no box. Get clear on the people you want to serve. 

It was amazing to me how by daring to hope, and ask, and take risks, and believe it was somehow possible, be willing explore pooling the talents of other creatives, and then leaning on the guidance and experience of Vervante, even more than I could imagine became possible. As a result, I found the courage to set my creativity free!

Q: What do you love about the Keepsake Treasures products?

They are filled with colorful energy captured in a variety of forms that expand my ability to touch hearts!

A long time ago I took on the belief that I could never succeed as an artist. Vervante offered me the framework through which I could see beyond that limiting belief. Using words+art+collaboration transformed into variety of product formats, I was easily able to expand my product line and began to see the value in using my creative inklings to make a difference - and an income!

About Keepsake Treasures

The trickiest journey of a lifetime is only 16 inches, the adventure from your head to your heart.

“But, where do I start,” you may wonder, and, “how is it possible for me to feel so easily overwhelmed, so little meaning, and all alone in a world where I am elbow-to-elbow with over 7 billion people?”

In a world of too much ‘stuff’ and too little time, we can loose sight of the essential things that matter most; the things that keep us connected to our own heart and to the people we love, confident that every moment matters, despite our circumstances.

Combining art+words+collaboration, the keepsake products at Rhonda's website, are infused with love and designed to keep us ever-aware that every moment is full of miracles, even the messy ones.

Whether something simple that offers acknowledgement to someone you love (My Little Red Book), uplifting comments and profound questions to help you maneuver through tough times (Healing Heart Cards), or daily encouragement to focus on the power of presence and possibilities (Yes, And the Adventure Continues Playbook/Any-Time Day Timer), these products are an invitation for us all to make every moment a keepsake moment.

Thanks to words, wisdom, and collaborative art skillfully brought to life through the craftsmanship of Vervante Press, RhondaHull.com offers a life-line of creative energy, and heartfelt encouragement on your adventure from your head to your heart. Come dare to make every moment a keepsake moment!

Author Spotlight: Pamelah Landers

by Vervante •

We're constantly amazed by the clever, unique, brilliant and beautiful books and products our customers create. Today we’d like to introduce you to Expert Master Hand Analyst Pamelah Landers, who is a best-selling international author of hand analysis products including the book Your Love Design.

The story behind Pamelah's book

Q: What inspired you to write this book?

Once I learned about heart lines in the hands, I wanted EVERYBODY to be aware and know this one thing. If they realized and had language for their heart line type, they could have much clearer communication with family members, dating partners and work associates. There would be a way to accept other people's design and not try to keep demanding or desiring other people to behave like the person who wants the others to change. We are each designed with a very specific approach and it's all in our hands. Our soul map is in our body, the hands being a microcosm which is why no two look exactly the same. I want people to know their design and be true to their design so life is easier, happier and certainly more fulfilling. I've been reading hands for 28 years and I KNOW in every fiber of my being that when people are seen for their design, there is big sense of relief, permission, enthusiasm and validation. I watch their faces change as I talk with them, soften, relax into their body, sit up straighter, even lean forward with excitement.

Q: What advice would you give other aspiring authors or creatives?

Do it! All your internal criticism based on projecting other people's "possible"  response is NOT a valid reason. Take the risk and ask for help. If you are writing non-fiction, you may not need to write from "front to back." Write the content that is up for writing NOW because you are excited about it, are thinking about, have stories to tell now. Put it together later. Write the introduction last unless you are super clear about the purpose of the introduction that explains the book's contents.

Q: What do you love about your book?

The cover design, the content that provides so much tangible, helpful insight one paragraph at a time. My book is full of stories to "make it real" for people, many based on movies (I've watched SO MANY movies to write my books) and people's real life experiences including mine. I'm super passionate about how my book can provide more ease for people in relationship dynamics. Relationships don't have to be as hard as people tend to make them if they knew their design and followed it.

About "Your Love Design"

Whether you’re on the verge of divorce, chronically single or somewhere in between, this new entrance into understanding your emotional guidance system helps you build, maintain, and grow relationships that work.

You don’t need to be fixed. Nothing is broken. You just haven’t fully understood the love design of you and your partner that is written in your hands. You haven’t fully uncovered your Emotional Guidance System that is always with you.

Discover Your Love Design: A Practical Guide to Your Love & Communication Style Based on Your Hands Heart Lines written by Pamelah Landers, the world’s leading authority on heart lines.

In this practical guide to your heart lines you’ll identify:

  • How you express your feelings
  • How you express and show love
  • How you want others to show love to you, how you receive it from them
  • How you want others to communicate their feelings with you
