    Space Clearing for the Art Studio

    I write often about Creativity Zones, those physical spaces in our life where creativity tends to be lived out.  Today I invited Jana Whalen with Vibrant Strides into the Creativity Tribe Studio for a Space Clearing Ceremony. Jana first came to may home to pick up something I was lending her and in the course of our conversation, we decided she might need one other thing.  That is when I realized I would need to open the door to the studio in order to retrieve it. Yikes!  The studio was beyond a mess.  But I decided to just go with it.  Jana was a trouper….she didn’t even wince! She empathized…

    Creativity Zones: Messy Studio Tables

    Have you ever wondered what goes on in the studio life of an artist?  Well, Seth Apter with The Altered Page is asking us to drop the veil and reveal our studio tables.  As it happens I live with several artists, so I didn’t just have one studio table in the house, I had…. Rachél (that’s me)          Eric (my hubby)         Lisa (friend/roommate) The first, inside the official Creativity Tribe Studio (click for a look at the studio).  All the artists in the house are working on altered playing cards for one project or another.  This is a great, quick project to do in…

    Inside Creativity Tribe Studio {Pics & Projects}

    About two years ago when I jumped into shaping Creativity Tribe, I turned a little sunroom on the side of my house into Creativity Tribe Studio. From this space, I pull together what I love to do and send it out into the world to touch the lives of other Creatives and Creative-Wanna-Be’s (which is simply the name I give for those who have not yet discovered they can trust their wish to create the lives they wish for). I make my art here, spin visions for better lives with my coaching clients, blend up lovely combinations of essential oils, drum, dance, sing, pet cats, hug friends and above all…hold…

    Checking IN about Checking OUT

    Oh, how I love being creative!  For me it is the essence of my life.  I don’t know what a day would look like without some sort of creative act or thought.  I am a Creative at my core.  So diving into my studio so fiercely the last several days has felt rewarding. I am getting ready for a trunk show tomorrow and an arts and crafts market the day after. Needless to say I won’t be sitting computer side sharing my creative sparks…..although I wish I could.  Instead, I am going to lovingly practice checking out for a few days while I do my thing.  When I can I…

    Festering Eyeball Pudding

    I have been straightening my studio, re-organizing it really.  Oh, how about a little peak in the studio!? We had a Witches’ Ball at the house last night for Halloween.  But before the party, I snuck into the studio for a few pics of my handmade witches hat. Yeppers, I was having fun with the camera!   I also created a necklace filled with dehydrated prince charming (just add water and a kiss…simple spells are always my favorite!) One theme of the party was to bring food with gross names. My offering: Graveyard Gruel (Texas Chili) and Festering Eyeball Pudding (grapes, tapioca pudding, and pecans…actually VERY yummy.) We had a…
