This is the last week for The 12 Secrets of Highly Creative Women and I must admit I am a bit discouraged. I sat down at my art table tonight to attempt to "play" a little with paint, stamps, etc. After an hour, I tore the page from the book and gave up. I decided to take a picture of the journal , my desk, and the torn page -in that order. When I uploaded it to my blog, they were arranged in the opposite position and I can't seem to change that. Ok, I give up. My creative season on the art page is over. I have been trying for months to return to what I used to do with no success.
Thus tonight, instead of a goals list, I feel I need to create a gratitude list to celebrate the successes experienced these past 12 weeks.
1.I created a blog in January.
2. In February,I helped my daughter create her blog to share her amazing creativity. I am so proud of her.
3.In February, I also wrote a poem, celebrated other areas in which I am creative such as cooking, decorating my home, flower gardening, and created a Party Album as a gift.
4.In March, I braved posting a self-portrait devoid of makeup, learned the principle of letting go once again, posted photos for the Four, and prepared for 2 workshops I'll be teaching next week.
WOW, this was an awesome exercise! And walking past my art desk still makes me smile, so I won't pack it up yet.
