    The Indulgent Life

    I have been indulging in life this year.  Not the kind of indulgence where you eat rich, spend lots, and party til the sun don’t shine.  The kind where you hold onto whatever comes your way and sap out every morsel of meaning and magic you can. What I have held onto… There was a birth in my circle of friends followed by lots of time with the baby, funny faces, kisses on the bottom of the feet, adventures in diaper changing, and those magical moment when you help the little one find his way to slumber land. There have been illnesses:  calls in the middle of the night, quick…

    Art Journal: Summer Solstice

    At the first of the year I discovered Galia Alena, a New Zealand based mixed media artist with a deep understanding of the creative spirit.  She and I were in the Fly Tribe Word Hop, sharing our words for the year.  Her offering was mesmerizing.  It was a video chronicling her journal process for exploring her word.  I loved it especially for its invitation to let intuition guide the process.  This is how my art usually evolves and I could appreciate witnessing that on her video. So when I got an invitation to participate as an instructor in Angels In My Studio 2013 and saw she is part of the…

    Tweaking the Tribe: Finding Kindred Spirits

    Nine months ago, I took the leap from my WordPress blog to an independent, stand-on-my-own website that I built from scratch without much know-how.   When I first published it, I could clearly see some of the places I wanted to take the website and my business but some of the process and destination were hidden from my view.  The more comfortable I get here, the more it feels like home.  Like a fabulous fixer-upper, there is always something to work on, something to tweak, and some addition that would make it just right! The Creativity Tribe concept comes from a deep desire to help others get in touch with…

    Check Out My New Banner

    Before After New stuff is popping up all over the website.  I have changed my banner (the big piece of artwork up top) and swapped out a few of the images on the sidebars (on both the blog page and the other pages.)  That’s because new stuff is going on.  When I first moved from my WordPress blog, Art of Collecting Yourself, I had an idea what the website would be evolving into, but had so much to learn.  I build the site on my own from a template called U-Design (I love it by the way….the template and the site.)   I have had it up about 9 months…
