    Gratitude Instagram Challenge #Gr8FullCre8ives

    Grateful Creatives… #Gr8FullCre8ives Several years ago, when I was doing everything I could to pull myself out of a funk I found myself in, I began playing with practicing gratitude on a daily basis.  It didn’t take long for me to feel that I was generally a grateful and appreciative person.  It was a powerful shift for me.  I felt genuinely heart-centered. As a Life Coach and Sacred Creativity Guide, I partner with Creatives who wish to live a more authentic, expressive life. I often begin by inviting them into a heart-centered flow through a gratitude practice.  The beautiful thing is that we can never be too grateful. So, on a…

    Lotus Dreams Mural

    One of the best gifts of being an artist-married-to-an-artist is that we understand the creative process and can support one another as we work on a project.  This last year, he has been a trouper.  Creativity Tribe has bloomed in so many ways.  He has been right there beside me, attending workshops, acting as my cheerleader-man, my roadie, my counselor, and my behind-the-scenes partner. Creativity Tribe is thriving, in part, because he is as dedicated to sharing a love of creativity as I am. So why all this talk about my artist-hubby?  Well, this last weekend, he was commissioned to paint a large mural for a local tea house, Lotus…

    Small Canvas Big heART

    The moment I discovered art cards, I was in LOVE!  They were small enough to finish in one setting, great for art-on-the-go, and somehow, somehow…… the small canvas could hold big parts of my heart!  I’ve been making these little beauties for a decade now, and in the last few months, I started a creative practice that speaks to me both creatively and spiritually. I am delighted to bring you along on this journey of self-discovery with me.  Creativity Tribe is hosting the Templekeeper’s Oracle Journey.  This is a 21 day eJourney…. an on-line class… designed to give you a simple but powerful creative practice in the form of art…

    Tune into Your Dream

    “Tune into your dreams,” he said.  Sitting with one of my mentors at Cafe Calypso, whispering between the words of the folk songs that come wafting by, I am caught up in his words.  I feel a bubble form around us.  People float around the bubble but never stop to engage.  I am grateful for this time with him, alone.  His thoughts make my mind expand.  His heart opens me to more fully loving this life that we have shared for nearly 30 years.  Dr. Erwin was once my college freshman English professor and is now my mentor, my friend, and my muse. He talks to me of my dreams and…

    What Story Will You Tell?

    What Story Will You Tell? Last week, I took part in Julie Jordan Scott‘s #5for5BrainDump. This 5 day writing challenge on Periscope invited participants to dive onto the page for a simple five minutes each day to connect the heart and head. Julie Jordan Scott Creative Life Coach #5for5BrainDump To be honest, I had hit a wall with my personal writing and this writing challenge was just the gentle nudge I needed to get the words flowing again. Several days during the week, Julie wrapped up the writing session with a #ScopeTrain. Writer volunteers could share their fresh, raw writings immediately after they were written…or could share something written during…

    Creating Fearlessly Art Journaling

    I fell in love with journaling the day it was introduced to me.  As an adult, I discovered you could create journals that held both words and images.  Mixed media journaling opened self-expression up to me in a whole new way.  My creative spirit and my art in general have never been the same! It has become a tool for ironing out ideas in my professional life, a stress-buster for my personal life, and a go-to source for personal development when I help other Creatives spin their dreams and engage more fully in creative projects. About a month ago I started broadcasting on Periscope.  Periscope is an app that allows you…
