Arte Soleil

What touches your heart?

by Judith Ashley

Hi, I’m Judith Ashley, author of The Sacred Women’s Circle series, romantic women’s fiction that honors pagan spiritual practices that nourish the soul. My stories show you what life could be like if you had a place like The Circle where you are unconditionally accepted, supported and loved so that you do overcome obstacles and find your happily-ever-after.

I’m also co-founder of the International Group blog, Romancing The Genres. This month at RTG we are writing about “What Touches Your Heart?” and I thought this would be a great theme for the February Arte Soleil blog.

Why? Because Arte Soleil touches hearts in a myriad of ways.

First and foremost, it is the manifestation of a heart dream for co-owners Kris Bella and Pete Fennel.

Second, every item in the Gift Shoppe is hand made by local creatives. All are gifts from their heart to the people who want to find that special, unique gift for the special, unique person in their life.

Third, with Open Mic Saturday, Arte Soleil provides a place for local talent to perform. Music can touch hearts in ways that words never will.

Fourth, connections to community is a cornerstone of the foundation of Arte Soleil. Kris Bella is a natural connector. Her interactions with area Neighborhood Associations and Organizations have strengthened them as well as given Arte Soleil a visible place in the community.

Even if you’ve already celebrated Valentine’s Day with your special someone, think about Arte Soleil for that “Just Because You’re Special To Me” or “Just Because You’re You” gift if not something more planned like a birthday. And, if you are one of those people who are already hiding 2019 Christmas Gifts in the back of the closet, don’t forget to see what’s new at Arte Soleil.

Oh and Fifth! Because of The Studio and classes, you can make your own special gift for that someone special…or maybe just for you!

So, here are 5 ways Arte Soleil touches hearts. What about you? What touches your heart? Please do share in the Comments! And if you read romance, my books are exclusive to Arte Soleil and remain on sale. Purchased individually, they are $12.00 each. Or, buy three or more at $10.00 each.
