    Creativity Tribe Pop-Up Shop Sneak Peek

    Creativity Tribe Pop-Up Shop Sneak Peek This sneak peek at the Creativity Tribe Pop-Up shop was promised in last week’s post.

    Because I Said I Would… Building Self-Trust

    Because I Said I Would…Building Self-Trust We are all on a journey of some sort.  Living the Creative Life is about looking inside and seeing where your journey is leading you. Recently, my journey has reminded me about the value of building self-trust.  Building self-trust is a powerful gift for a Creative to give themselves because it often means they can more fully share their gifts with the World. Tips for Building Self-Trust Here is one of my favorite tips to help Creatives stand up and say to themselves and to the World…. I am doing it because I said I would. Start a Conversation In college as I was…

    Saying Good-bye, Saying Hello

    Saying Good-bye, Saying Hello A very wise man once told me that there is no such thing as not saying anything.  He explained that even when we don’t talk, when we don’t say a single word, we are saying a lot. So in my silence during 2018, I didn’t mean to say, “Good-bye,” but in many ways, that is exactly what I was saying.  Good-bye.   I stopped talking to you here, sweet Creativity Tribe.  I pulled myself off some of my favorite social media platforms (for some, I still haven’t returned), pulled away from some of my local friends, and I dove deep into myself.  I didn’t do this…

    Celebrating with a Give-Away

    Celebrating with a Give-Away! I want to invite you to celebrate Creativity Tribe with me!  What are we celebrating?  Five years of instigating creativity in one another.  That’s right, five years ago I took my personal creative-life-centered blog (Art of Collecting Yourself) and transformed it into a professional website…. and my life work… Creativity Tribe. {Make sure not to miss the give-away at the bottom of the post.} I tell you, I didn’t REALLY know what I was doing.  I had never built a website before, and those were the days before drag and drop platforms.  I taught myself to build a site over the course of a couple of…

    21 Days of Self-Care: Re-Treat Yourself Well

    21 Days to Re-Treat Yourself Well (This event is closed.) The need for self-care seems to hit when it is most inconvenient. Life gets busy.  Life piles it on.  Someone you care about needs a little extra care….or a lot.  And you are lift wondering how in the world to make it all work without dipping into reserves that already feel shallow. Several years ago at the height of “going places” in my career as a helping professional, I got a hard taste of burn-out. Finding my way back to center meant balancing my busy schedule of pursuing my dreams while also committing to a consistent practice of meaningful self-care.…

    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…

    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…

    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…
