A Little Practical Magic: Revisiting Blog Favorites

life is fairytale

I believe in movie therapy.  Grab your favorite snack, turn the lights down low, watch alone or with a good friend (or two), and prepare to be transformed and transfixed.  In our house we have a few favorites we gravitate to and Practical Magic with Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman is at the very top.

Several years ago, I was invited to participate in a blog party that focused on the movie/book, the Practical Magic Blog Party.  I felt kind of new to blogging (I was still over at my very first blog, Art of Collecting Yourself) and wished very much to try my hand at making videos.  As it happened, the blog party was scheduled for the week after I was to visit Washington State.  I had no idea what my offering to the party would be.  But I decided to jump in.

I started with researching the movie and quickly discovered it was filmed in a quaint little village not far from where we would be visiting.  I threw together an outfit that resembled the witchy aunts, packed my new video camera, and crossed my fingers that our hosts would be game for a day trip.  As it happens, they were.

And from that, came several short videos about the little town of Coupeville, WA and, of course, Practical Magic.

This month, I want to feature those videos.  They are very short.  They are such a hoot, and yet, they also have something a little deeper and more meaningful to share.  I hope you enjoy them.

So grab your favorite snack, turn the lights down low….and let the show begin!

Creativity Tribe Banner Words

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 and in that time have honed what my offerings are.  There are lots of fun things in the works over the summer too.

About the Banner

You might notice I have given a wink to that old blog.  This idea of collecting ourselves comes from my experience with expressive art as a healing force.   My intention is to make this space a place where you can come to be inspired to do just that, use art to bring yourself in alignment with who you are at your core.  I try to model that in my own life and give examples of it here.  Over the course of the summer I will be crafting several opportunities for you dive into the Art of Collecting Yourself.

My Summer

This week also starts a series of camps that I am teaching locally.  Four sessions to be exact.  By the time you get this I will be waist high in kiddos, doing drama games, improv, and just plain having fun.  What a perfect way to engage my own Creative Spirit.

Hearing From You

I would love to hear what your summer looks like.  What is ahead for you?  Any wishes or intentions you would like to claim?  I would love to hold a space for their becoming!
