For the second week's prompt for the 12 Secrets of Highly CREATIVE Women:
What Have I always loved?
Color, shape, and wild freedom of expression!
Total Chaotic Messiness!
I am finally living this bliss by making my Creative Journaling the focus of my work.
and It feels so good!
I just make crazy pages in my journal and see what happens -- and I get to share them here, and talk about them in workshops, and even travel a teeny bit to share this work.
I meet once a month with a journaling group and we cut and tear and paste and color together, then share our pages - it is awesome.
I feel like I am finally doing what I was meant to do, and it only took 47 years to get here!
and I can't resist adding some other things I use to keep the MUSE happy:
*Some more CHOCOLATE
*Good coffee, often
*Healthy fruits and veggies - preferably organic
*piles of collage paper, images, books to tear up, ribbons and sparkly things
*A nap on the futon
*my cuckoo clock which sings Edelweiss every hour on the hour
*anything colorful and exhuberant
