Are You Waiting to Bloom?

Do you find yourself waiting to pursue your creative passions? Waiting for the perfect time to begin? Waiting for a sign? Waiting for the ideal place to create? Waiting for permission from someone else? Waiting for everything on your to-do list to be complete? (We know when that happens…never!)

What if you stop waiting and start creating today?

What if you say Yes! to your creative passions?

What if today is the perfect time to begin?

What if this is your sign?

What if you create right where you are?

What if I give you permission? 

What if you move creativity to the top of your to-do list?

Can you imagine how good that might feel?

Just think of how beautiful our world would be if we all allowed ourselves to stop waiting and simply bloom where we've been planted. What's one small way you might allow yourself to bloom where you're planted today? At home? At work? In your community?

Until next time, all the best from my blooming Creative Oasis to yours,

Maintaining Momentum After Your Creative Retreat

Have you ever felt delightfully wrapped up in the creative cocoon of a fabulous retreat or workshop focused fully on the joy of creating and surrounded by oodles of other supportive creative souls also totally engaged in experiencing their creative bliss? Wow! It’s an amazing feeling, isn’t it?

Have you ever found yourself back in the real world just days later feeling that joyful creative energy evaporate as your busy daily schedule, never-ending to-do lists and obligations take over?

You’re not alone! Luckily, using the gentle yet powerful (some would say magical) methods of Kaizen-Muse® Creativity Coaching, we have a wonderful variety of ways to continue to ride our creative waves.

That’s why I’m so happy to be able to share my special workshop, “So In The Flow –Maintaining Your Creative Momentum Even After the Retreat” on the final day of this year’s Art and Soul Retreat in Portland, Oregon. Find the line-up for seven full days ofmixed media art workshops here. (April 7 – 13, 2014)

We’ll spend the day together exploring a potpourri of fun prompts, activities and discussion topics designed to help lucky participants return home from Art & Soul feeling ready to stay in the flow and maintain their creative momentum. (Read all about it and find registration information here.)

It will be my absolute pleasure to send enthusiastic creativity lovers back into the world with a treasure chest of tools and techniques designed to help them move past procrastination, perfectionism, overwhelm and other creative blocks that may await.

Until next time, all the best from my Creative Oasis to yours,

p.s. – If you’d like to receive my Mid-Week Oasis Moments (bite-size bonbons of creative inspiration) as well as my e-booklet, “Permission to Be Creative 101” you can sign up for both right here.
