Gr8Full Cre8ives Project

creativity promptAs the holiday season draws near, you may feel your stress levels begin to rise.  Even if it is your favorite time of year, it is not uncommon for it to come with added responsibilities which can mean stretching your wallet and schedule a bit more than usual.  For me, that means it is time to give myself the gift of more peace by upping my game when it comes to self-care.

Holiday stress busters can take all kinds of shapes, but I think the simpler the better!  Gratitude is a great place to start.  It is just a shift in perspective.  I set a goal to recognize gratitude daily…or close to it.  When I do, I feel like life is better and I can give more to it!

That is one reason I am working with the Cre8ive Klatch to spread the value of gratitude, specifically for Creatives.  We would love for you to join us in documenting the gratitudes in your life.  It’s easy.  It’s fun.  And it can make life sparkle a bit more!

 How it Works….

Simply snap a photo of something that speaks to what you are grateful for and share it on Instagram with the hashtags  #cre8iveklatch #gr8fullcre8ives #cre8gratitude.  We will explore different themes weekly that you can use to inspire your gratitude practice or share straight from the heart.

Looking forward to growing more grateful with you!

Creativity Tribe Meets Cre8ive Klatch

Cre8ive Klatch RP

A few years ago as I tip toed out into the land of virtual reality and got caught up in the world wide web, I found myself creating unique connections with a tight knit group of online artists.  We started off supporting one another’s professional development and then, quickly shared more personal journeys.  Those were the seeds of the Cre8ive Klatch.

We were friends….that was for sure.  And then came the true test of friendship… working together for a common cause.

We had discovered that creative support could help us dig in deeper as Creatives.  We saw ourselves growing as individuals and as creative business owners. Now we have all caught Klatch Fever and are working together to support other Creatives through our shared ideas about creativity, DIY projects, and inspiration.

I am delighted to be featured on Cre8ive Klatch today.  For those who are just finding themselves here, welcome to Creativity Tribe, a Creative Living Studio.  Here we blend spirituality, self-care, elixir for well-being, play, imagination, meaning and magic for a boost to your Creative Spirit.

I want to invite you to subscribe to the Creativity Tribe blog by diving into the Creativity Booster Pack, a free mini e-course designed to tie a little lift to your Creative Spirit.  It is my gift to you!

A Little Practical Magic: Revisiting Blog Favorites

life is fairytale

I believe in movie therapy.  Grab your favorite snack, turn the lights down low, watch alone or with a good friend (or two), and prepare to be transformed and transfixed.  In our house we have a few favorites we gravitate to and Practical Magic with Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman is at the very top.

Several years ago, I was invited to participate in a blog party that focused on the movie/book, the Practical Magic Blog Party.  I felt kind of new to blogging (I was still over at my very first blog, Art of Collecting Yourself) and wished very much to try my hand at making videos.  As it happened, the blog party was scheduled for the week after I was to visit Washington State.  I had no idea what my offering to the party would be.  But I decided to jump in.

I started with researching the movie and quickly discovered it was filmed in a quaint little village not far from where we would be visiting.  I threw together an outfit that resembled the witchy aunts, packed my new video camera, and crossed my fingers that our hosts would be game for a day trip.  As it happens, they were.

And from that, came several short videos about the little town of Coupeville, WA and, of course, Practical Magic.

This month, I want to feature those videos.  They are very short.  They are such a hoot, and yet, they also have something a little deeper and more meaningful to share.  I hope you enjoy them.

So grab your favorite snack, turn the lights down low….and let the show begin!
