Digital Sisterhood Month has been amazing so far. Yesterday, I hosted the DC Digital Sisterhood Month field trip to the National Museum of Women in the Arts. Digital sisters Danielle Hatchett (@dyhatchett on Twitter) and Xina Eiland (@xeiland on Twitter) attended the event. We had a wonderful time viewing the beautiful artwork of Dr. Lois Mailou Jones, an African American artist and former professor of art at Howard University. Click here to see additional photos from the event.
Danielle arrived first. So she won a copy of my debut novel Love’s Troubadours – Karma: Book One. Love’s Troubadours tells the story of Karma Francois, a museum curator, art consultant, and yoga teacher. It is based in Washington, DC. It also discusses Dr. Jones’ artwork “Jennie” and “Les Fetiches” (two paintings in the museum exhibit) and the National Museum of Women in the Art. Visit www.lovestroubadours.com for more information. My book is available on Amazon.com too.
I also enjoyed having dinner at Teaism (www.teaism.com), an Asian-inspired cafe that is owned by woman entrepreneur, on Sunday evening and practicing yin and yang yoga during the field trip to Tranquil Space, a yoga studio owned by author/yoga instructor/entrepreneur Kimberly Wilson on Saturday afternoon. Visit www.tranquilspace.com for more information on the yoga studio. The whole weekend was a Digital Sisterhood blast that allowed women to support other women-owned businesses and cultural institutions!
I am happy to report that this weekend’s Definition of Digital Sisterhood contest had two winners Treva Lindsay (@divafeminist on Twitter) Bernadette Davis (@bernadettedavis on Twitter). See their definitions below. Both ladies won a one hour creativity coaching session with me. Bernadette has already scheduled hers!

@BernadetteDavis – #digitalsisterhood = making authentic connections, keeping an open mind, having someone’s back and using your talent, network to help women
