Good morning friends.
It seems lately with summer upon us that my heart has been filled back up with inspiration. For the past month and a half I have been battling with family issues – my mom being sick and just so much has been weighing my heart down. So much that for a while I would sit at my art table and have absolutely no creativity come out of me. Because this has happened to me many times I knew enough not to try to force it as it would totally just leave me feeling frustrated. But with creative deadlines looming for the design teams I am on I do admit I was in a bit of a panic.
So what did I do……
Well not much haha. Bet you didn’t expect that answer. ❤️.
I have found what works for me is just sitting with my thoughts n feelings, allowing them to be inside of me – cry if I needed to but just allow myself to feel my feelings.
I will say that this is not an easy thing to do. Especially when your feelings are those of hurt and pain, of things you can’t control, of things you just plain don’t want to feel.
I turned to my oracle cards, which I often do during times of stress and heartache. I would cleanse the air each morning and do a reading, asking the cards to give me the guidance I needed to keep moving forward. Praying I wouldn’t just get stuck. Each time I would get the guidance I needed I would feel a tiny bit better but still my creativeness was on what seemed like permanent vacation without me. You can see my readings on my Instagram posts here and here .
The other morning I woke up and inspiration hit me. I mean like totally not expecting it out of the blue hit me. I all of a sudden wanted to paint. I had so many ideas looming inside of me wanting to break free and this….. the most powerful feeling I have had since I came up with my Stencil Crush Tuesday Videos. The urge to create an online class. Not just any online class but one that would have meaning, one that would help others , one that would put me back in the creative game to inspire others and myself along the way.
So with that being said, in just a few short weeks I will be offering my first ever solo online workshop for FREE. Yes you heard that right for free. Why you might ask? Because I want to give back to all of you, to the world, to the women out there that need this as much as I do.
In just a few short weeks I will be releasing “THE EMPOWERED CREATIVE WOMAN” workshop – designed to help women find their voice through art and creativity.
This free online workshop will include private videos created in real time, journal prompts, art techniques, inspiration to help you empower yourself. But most of all it will include a lot of love and self love that we all need. There will be a private safe and nurturing Facebook group created for all of us to connect, to give each other support and lift each other up.
As this beautiful workshop is still in the works I will share more details as I get closer to the release. Be sure to follow my blog and sign up to get notifications when I post on my blog so you won’t miss the realize of this class. The only way to access this free online workshop will be through my blog.
For now I leave you will several photos that have inspired me today from my yard. Nature is so alive, so vibrant so full of peace and happiness. It brings a soothing feeling over me to gaze at the flowers being touched by the morning sunlight.
