Best of 2016

Best of 2016…. What a year!

I hit the start of 2016 with tons of excitement.  It felt like a coming out party.  Coming out of what you wonder.  For a couple of years before, I approached life on the struggle bus.  I had a short bout with cancer that I came out on top of, but it took me down a detoured path I didn’t anticipate. As I ended 2015, I was ready to share some big projects with the Creatives of my hometown of Corpus Christi, Texas, and I began working on e-course ideas for Creativity Tribe Worldwide.

My offerings were a big hit.  I remember feeling so high with delight.  I could see creativity awakening in those who found themselves part of the gatherings.  And over the course of a few months, a local Creativity Tribe started to take shape.

Art Shows

I went on to share my art in two showings, back to back.  Some of my art can tend to be pretty large so I don’t offer it much except in-person.  Both art shows were big successes.  I could sense my art had attained another level of development.  I sold several small pieces, two large pieces, and got commissioned for a piece that just found its way to its new home. (I will share a post about it in the new year.)

Periscope is my muse!!!

Early in June, the course of Creativity Tribe took a drastic turn….for the better.  I discovered Periscope.

I had been struggling with getting in touch with my audience.  When I had a WordPress Blog years ago, my connections with Creatives were strong.  But social media became a slippery path to get traction on, especially while being occupied with my cancer journey.  Periscope changed the game for me.  I had a theatre and audience in the palm of my hands.

PeriGirls

It didn’t take long for me to find the PeriGirls community.  PeriGirls is a Facebook Group of female broadcasters, nearly 11,000 members strong.  I dove in, began immediately sharing tips and tricks for connecting more intimately with the Creative Spirit that lives in each of us.  It has been a wild, blessed ride.  I have made some new friends, been able to help people engage their creativity and make small but significant shifts in their lives.

Million Hearts Club

I even hit the one million heart mark on New Year’s Eve.  It was thrilling!  Big thanks to all of Creativity Tribe’s supporters, the PeriGirls, and especially CT SuperFans!

Art Oracle e-Journey

Once I found the worldwide stage for Creativity Tribe’s offerings on Periscope, I was ready to share my online course.  Templekeeper’s Oracle Journey was a mixed media art card workshop that invited participants to create cards that expressed their inner cosmos.  The class as a big hit and I had several people request a second round….which I hope to offer early in 2017.

We rounded out 2016 with an Instagram gratitude challenge called #Gr8FullCre8ives.  I was very pleased with the interactions.  I got messages from several Creatives sharing that they felt the focus on gratitude was meaningful to their lives.  That was one of my favorite parts of the challenge, in fact, getting back-channel messages that fleshed out how gratitude helps to shift even the most difficult time in life.

The last week of 2016 has been one of retrospect and what I call dreamcasting.  I am looking back on what I accomplished, where I fell short, and what blocks come up as I am working towards creating something (art, projects, relationships, or life), and what worked really well. I am also feeling into what the next steps are for Creativity Tribe.  I can’t wait to play at life with you!

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!

Bite into Creativity

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 to visit live with people all over the world and then watch the ‘scopes as a replay.

This upcoming week I will be joining a group of mix media art journalers on Periscope as we share tips, tricks, and inspiration to help you dive into #CreatingFearlessly!

Creating Fearlessly Mixed Media Art JournalingThe Creating Fearlessly Mixed Media Art Journaling series is FREE.  There are a couple ways to keep up with it. To watch live on Periscope at the scheduled times, go in and search for each of the presenters, then follow each of the artists to receive notifications.  OR search #CreatingFearlessly on Twitter to find replays.
