People We Admire: Oprah Winfrey


O Magazine February 2012 Oprah Winfrey Chalkboard ChinaOprah Winfrey is one of the world’s most beloved ladies and we think the way she encourages people is amazing! The talented TV host, author, producer, philanthropist and entrepreneur is a hero to women everywhere with her amazing personal story and her inspiring, creative spirit.

This February, when we saw the cover of O, The Oprah Magazine, we were thrilled! Across the cover, the words “Express Yourself” are chalked beautifully by the oh-so-talented chalk artist, Dana Tanamachi (she is fantastic)! Oprah is wearing vibrant, gorgeous colors that help to complete the standout cover. Clearly, we couldn’t help but adore this issue as it’s everything Chalkboard China is about; getting creative!

We love the fact that Oprah loves chalk and believes in expressing creativity. We also love Oprah’s wise and powerful words that are seen throughout the issue. Imagine her wisdom chalked across a Chalkboard China vase — what a perfect and encouraging way to start your morning!

Here are a few of our favorite quotes from the February issue:

“I believe that each of us has an essence, a quality at the very core of our being that makes us who we are.” – Oprah Winfrey

“What else is as satisfying as leaving your mark on something and making it your own?” – Oprah Winfrey

“All I could think was, Did that really just happen?…The experience was more proof that this work is a joy, not a job.” – Dana Tanamachi on being the chalk artist for the cover of February’s issue.
