We Are All Creative

I work with children, so I can see that the creativity is
within all of us.
"Creative" doesn't just mean "talented at drawing or painting". To me, creative means, being able to imagine something unique and put it (make it) into something concrete.
There are many levels of imagination.
There are many ways to create.
Hopefully you'll take some time to explore your own inner creativity.
When you do, share it with the world.
We all need to see the creative actions of others.

Journal Spilling

I just received a new book by Diana Trout. It is called Journal Spilling. It is a great book for people who are interested in experimenting with paint and other art supplies without worrying about the end result. I love it! Check it out here.

Goddess School

Goddess Leonie is offering two e-courses, which begin on Sept. 28, 2009. She is a lovely spirited woman who explains her courses well in her Vimeo video.
I learned of her in SARK'S latest book Juicy Pens, Thirsty Paper.


I've been thinking about chakras lately. Last week I really needed to balance mine. This week is much better.
I am dreaming up some images to paint.
Here is one I found on the internet that I enjoy. To learn more about the chakra system, I found rick richards site to be very informative. Warning: There are some graphic images of organs inside the body.
