a good word revolution

From our vantage point, one positive word can make all the difference in the world. One positive view possesses the power to transform. It is our forever hope that among the thousands of words we illuminate, one will resonate and shift the vantage point of the receiver to a view of the world that vaporizes for at least a brief moment any and all negative emotion they ever could have visualized. l o V e!

Wonderful Adrea,

It seems as if we haven't spoken in FOREVER.

T is for TAKS. In Texas, that stands for educator game day. Consecutive days of high stakes, high stress, standardized testing. Yee-Haw!

Can't wait to start the next set! Looking forward to M A T H!!!!!!!!!!!! E is for Equilateral!

Enjoy your trip.

I happen to have some fabulous book suggestions for your Kindle:

A is for Angel, A is for Apple, C is for Canvas, I is for Inspiration, N is for Never Night, E is for El Nino or Ur Txtbk.

They are only $2.99.

Kisses and Music!

"A powerful agent is the right word whenever we come upon one of those intensely right words...the resulting effect is physical as well as spiritual and electrically prompt." -Mark Twain

We want you to feel better right now!

When I began collecting words in my classrooms, the results on the morale of my at risk students were positively phenomenal. One parent reported that they saved her child's life during a spell he served in solitary confinement. He recited the words he learned from class repeatedly until his spirits lifted. When my students graduated, I had them tell me their favorite positive word. I was always emotionally moved, and my word was and is always fabulous.

We began to use positive words at bedtime at home. I wrote each word down in the positive words journal. The collection grew. Once, I wanted to sleep in the car on the beach to ensure a perfect sun rising experience, before sleeping my son reminded us to play the 'good word game'. He was last to say his word and it was 'hotel'. He was three.

Whilst revising the manuscripts for this round of edits, my current students would critique each page. One student started reading the pages to the baby in her womb. Another said that she wished something like this was available when she were younger.


I then met a n g e l life coach, Lisa Lawrence, and collaborated with a n g e l partner, Adrea L. Peters. Adrea is a m a z i n g.


We envision the pages everywhere... in the classrooms, on the smartboards, on t-shirts, on greeting cards, on phones, on computer screens, randomly accessible to everyone. We believe this word revolution can change our world, right now!

Digital mediums will be our current method to blast these words into the world. Each series has been lovingly crafted in a different format. The pages are p i c t u r e less. We give these words to you. Each word is yours to do with what you choose.

"People with an impoverished vocabulary live an impoverished emotional life. People with rich vocabularies have a multihued palette of colors with which to paint their experience, not only for others, but for themselves as well." - Anthony Robbins

I love you!

B is for B a h a m a s

Teff, my darling!!!

C is for Canvas is in the TOP TEN on AMAZON! Click the link to see! WOW!

I'm soon off to a beach with my Kindle and my q u i e t mind. While there I will be at work on Cave of Souls and I'd like my mind to ponder words for the next seven p i c t u r e l e s s books . . .

Can we c o m m i t to what's next?

What I t h i n k we t h i n k . . .

I is for Imagination (three power positives)
N is for Nothing (all zero/blank/nothing words)
N isn't for Zig Zag (I made that up... but I think you know which book I mean)
E is for Evolution (biology words) or E is for Equation (math words)
A is for Adore (another in the beautiful a n g e l series!)
C is for Curtsy (dance words!)
W is for Wellness (New series start!)

I am, as always, incorrigibly o p e n to whatever moves you!

Isn't this the F U NNEST thing ever?

A M A Z I N G!

Ahh... almost done and can then get these out into the world! Y i p p e e!

Whoa! What? WOW! Um, those are actually the most common three words used at p i c t u r e l e s s. Our success amazes us. We feel as if it all just started though it has been in the works for well over a decade. What makes us happiest is to hear a child read their letters and beam with pride as the word quietly, or boldly, touches their heart. We see it everyday. Every single day. Whoa! What? WOW!

x

Xlokk. A word we never heard of. Xanadu. Heard of it, no clue what it meant. Learning. Daily. Creating. More. Hourly. Learning is the seed to life. From there, we grow. From there, we seek. From there, we become. From there, we expand. What a beautiful thing! Xerox it! Quick!

y

You. p i c t u r e l e s s is yours. We believe it is yours more than you may ever know and that is absolutely fine. But, while we have you here reading this, please know it is YOU who we want to say YES to and that is exactly what we do!

z

We’re aiming for our zenith. Always. And guess what the best part is? Our zenith is always pushing us ahead so we are always moving forward. Our zenith drives our growth. We sure hope you’ll decide to come along for the ride.

Butterfly Adrea,

The alphab(ull)ets are fabulously perfect! In response to your email, it is time. Thank you.

P, S, and T... I only had about ten seconds!

Sincerely Swirling,

Teffanie


p

Adrea would describe herself in one word: n e r d. She likes quantum physics, actually she might like it a little too much. She also loves the histories of mathematics, particle physics and noetics. She does even things out by liking yoga and fooooddd! Between her and Teffanie, they have plenty of degrees and credentials for this company. Adrea with a B.S. in journalism, teff in education liberal arts, both with masters in writing. In their daily lives teff spends her time with children and adrea with computers. The match is perfectly genius. Beyond anything either could have put together on their own.

ha, that makes two... n e r d S

s

Satiate. Savory. Succulent. Silly! Ah the spoken word. Our books are best, we believe, when spoken. Not just read aloud. Spoken. Not just in the moment of reading the book. Spoken. Spoken in that they have become a part of a reader’s vocabulary. Or even better, a part of their lives. We are moved beyond measure by the spoken. S is for Space. Own your space. (from A is for Angel, our talisman.)

I'm in conflict with 's', or 's' is in conflict with me. I want the world to hear the words, and say the words, but primarily to eat the words anyway they can.

Since the onset of our facebook word revolution last week, we all have been playing with positive words. I love reading them, seeing them, feeling them, imagining them all over me. Is that in conflict with this bullet? I do want them spoken... IDK let me know what you think. LOVE talisman


t

Teffanie. p i c t u r e l e s s is her brain child. A Words are a way of life for her. And when she and Adrea connected, she knew immediately imagined the partnership possibility ies. of it all. She’s good like that. (Adrea not so much but she has other talents!) Teff is an educator, an uplifter, a mother to Imhotep and Halima, a sister and the most curious soul you might ever meet. Together, these two creators blend, bringing out the best in each other and the result, so far, is this incredible company. Tomorrow? Who knows! Fabulous!

And then some... next seven



Teff, my sweet... I won't be near my main computer today until later this evening... thus... in case you are and want to edit, I offer up the next seven. I know, that's 14 for you to peruse. You are that good.

I'll have the iPhone so texts and emails will land... I'll call you for a check in later in the morn.

Love!

o

Onward we go. We loovvveee books. We love holding them and smelling them and buying first editions, especially signed ones. We love sharing great books with others. We love match making books to readers. We love that people want to know what we’re reading. We love editors. We love publishers. We have a deep and true commitment to the business of words. It is our hope that we will be active participants in the publishing world. It is our dream to have the opportunity to dip our oars into these omnifarious waters with open hearts and minds.

Quick. Once we create a book, it goes to market in about 3 days. Quite quick! We project seven books every seven weeks. And there is no end in sight to the quality and quantity of our freshness and love for our products.

r

Reduce. Reuse. Recycle. We see p i c t u r e l e s s as renewable energy, both physically and emotionally. We believe in the three Rs. And we want our company to be a refreshing reminder of what everything—not just trash—can be about. Think of it: Our electronic format allows us to keep out impact on mother Earth minimal. Plus, we can update in that same format, and you can upload updates FREE. Amazing! We can keep renewing our books without reprinting. It is remarkable new way to read

United under one principle: to positively play with our ABCs in as many fun ways as we can come up with! It is simple, clean and keeps us on the edge of the unknown, exactly where we want to be!

One of the new designs...

Just for you...


Next seven...

Amazing! Salty chocolate and hot tea!! Yahhuuumm! Hope the drive went well. I somehow traveled that road with you today. Not the easiest of drives, but a good one. Vacillating here to there, out and in. ALWAYS lovely to take a break from "stuff" to play with you... Loved your edits. Locked into to the master vault now.

Moving on to the next seven... Um, I just realized that the 7s also match the ROYGBIV. Duh. You are so clever!

h

Helping people has been the primary intent of

p i c t u r e l e s s books since Teffanie envisioned it years ago. We will donate part of our profits. We will give away books. We will give our time and energy to charities and people and organizations we believe in. We are partnering with others to create alphabets and projects that will further their causes and passions. It is our hope that we help. And so we will.

i

To imagine more. Our tag line. To us, it says it all. The power of conjuring your own image is extraordinary. We are asking you to picture less so that you may imagine more. Not only is it a superior educational tool that grows one’s ability to think and form lasting knowledge, it builds self-esteem. Isn’t it gratifying to create images based on the feelings and sensations within yourself? Wow. That’s all we can say. Wow. More please. Much much more.

j

Just 26 letters.

Just $2.99

Just one click.

Just fun.

Just easy.

Just imagine.

k

The Kindle. Gosh, for us, not just a device, a way of invigorating a whole audience, a whole new world! And the Kindle does not limit itself, something we wholeheartedly support. Our treasures can be downloaded to the Kindle itself, but also the Kindle app can be downloaded to just about any device… PC, MAC, iPhone, iTouch, iPod, iPad, Blackerry and for FREE! Amazing! Gooooo Kindle! We appreciate you!

l

We love the thought of you lifting up in luscious laughing lightning lessons. How do we know this happens? We let life lead our longing to learn more about the lure of lucratively leafing through letters. Less is so much more. Little letters lead to large lexicons of love. And that’s how we roll.

m

Marketing MANIA! With the miniscule overhead and the microscopic production cost of p i c t u r e l e s s, we can invest mega amounts of time and energy into our marketing and education! Plus! We get a fantastic margin with Amazon! What magic! Some of the current plans include greeting cards, postcards, flash cards, jewelry, temporary tattoos, Twitter madness, Facebook insanity, mugs, t-shirts, mousepads, screensavers, posters and last but not least, customized alphabet books—we already get multiple requests daily for these! Magnificent madness!

n

Our n o t h i n g series is the most exciting thing we’ve seen in books in a long time! We never tire of wanting nothing to mean something, because often it does, doesn’t it? There is a lot to be gained in nothing. In these books, you get to work to see, to find, to imagine, and to feel. Feel your way to the image. Oh! We love it! The n o t h i n g series pushes the reader to not give up, not on themselves, and not on their ability to achieve meaning in what might seem like nothing.

p i c t u r e l e s s books

to imagine more




w o n d e r f u l,

I will be traveling tomorrow. My drive time is like your run time. It's when the answers come. So...I thought we should ask some questions...

How does p i c t u r e l e s s get reviews for books? How do we get the post cards online? Who should p i c t u r e l e s s partner with to do the apps? What questions should I be asking, might be a better start.

Post a question or two for me to play with. Love the first seven- pressing on. (((h)))


a
When we play with our abc’s we find beautiful, simple ways to expand our lives. In our dream to make feeling good simple and fun, we turned to the source of learning that we all have in common, no matter what culture, gender, age, creed. The abc’s unite us in ways that we have only begun to find. The possibilities are endless, and the fun, simple: infinite.

b
We believe in giving our best beauty to those who find us. We believe the world is ready to blossom. We believe in becoming, no, ballooning into the beautibountiful best we all want to be!

c

Our The c a n v a s series offers a creative way to teach art, to do art and to play and make the words come alive. First in the imagination, next, we hope on the page, or screen, in the sand, or on the icing of a cake! These words can then expand one’s knowledge, and thus, expand the pleasure of the art in a museum, the images on TV or in the movies, or of course, in reading a book. Knowing the words of art, make art come a l i v e !

d

Desire. At p i c t u r e l e s s, we dive into our dreams. Could a word, just one word, change a day? Bring a little lift to the dreary? We don’t doubt that discovering delightful d words is a pretty darn quick way to fulfilling our greatest desire: bringing delectable dancing deep within our reader’s hearts and minds.


e

Science. Math. The Unknown. OurThe e x p l o r e series gives us the exciting opportunity to give the complex, ease and to energize and enliven topics that can exhaust! We want to exploit words enough to entice people to where we are… in LOVE with the Universal Laws of Nature. It is an endless frontier! Imagine… E n d l e s s ! That is certainly our definition of exhilaration!

f

No book, no blog entry, no tweet, no card, t-shirt or speech is created at p i c t u r e l e s s books that isn’t fun and our fullest pleasure. When we have fun, we create fun. We love to take on fiery subjects and make them fun. Life’s biggest, toughest subjects deserve a little feisty fun. So, when things get funky, and make us feel like we’re falling over a big cliff, we first find the fun, then play from there.

Greensburg, Pennsylvania brought the co-creators together in Graduate school. Adrea and Teff attended and completed Seton Hill University’s Writing Popular Fiction program. They habitually wandered gallivanted between scheduled group sessions in search of writing solitude. One such chance occasion, they rushed gravitated to the same perfect groovy or great? quiet place. A fabulous groovy or great? partnership occurred.

Verbose is good for the vision. When I alliterated us to groovy, I might have gone to far!

The postcards are getting better, hmm? Made more designs today. If I can f i g u r e out how to link one up I will... Otherwise it'll be a surprise. Next step... how can we get those online for others to send to each other?

I loved the quote today... and I appreciated it so much! You get it? Here tis in casties . . .

"Be easy about this. Be playful about it. Don't work so hard at it. Let your dominant intent to be to feel good, and if you don't feel good, then let your dominant intent be to feel relief. Feel your way through it. If you think your way through it, you can get off on all kinds of tangents. If you feel your way through it, you can come quickly to your Core Energy, and when you do that only good can then flow to you." (AH)

As I type I l i s t e n to Exilio by Thievery Corporation which makes me think in e s p a ñ o l! Much movement toward this translation concept.

alphab(ull)ets progress... this is us. it is an alphabet of p i c t u r e l e s s thus something we have done many times. Neat part is, we can keep changing it... Here are the first seven letters cuz I know how you L O V E your 7s... Your g e n i u s awaits... make them ours. I deepened the "c" because true yellow is hard to see again a white background. Better?

The spacing between letter and words below will be funky unless we lower the size of the "shout" and I force the spacing. Can do. IDK. L e m m e know whats suits your BIG heart and crrrrazzzzy gorgeous g e n i u s mind.

VIOLA! Here's to FUN!

Few thoughts...

g: I don't think either of us are the type to quarrel... so maybe something different... Instead of either of us turning away and finding a new spot to hide in? Instead of leaving, we stayed? Something... Cuz I think both of us would have easily found another spot and never thought much of it... but instead we did share... and we worked together from the very beginning...

b: Seems a little obvious. Of course we will do our best. Beauty maybe? Maybe more on how our concept is to show the beauty of words and letters and putting a whole alphabet together in one theme...

Onto you... I also think I got long-winded on some (kinda like this blog entry!) So... where can we cut and clean and crsipify it?
