Nourishing Your Creative Spirit

“What in your life is calling you? When all the noise is silenced, the meetings adjourned, the lists laid aside…what still pulls on your soul?”  Terma collective, “The Box”

This quote really got me thinking – after having so many months of planning and preparing for my daughter’s wedding everything has become quite calm again which made me realize that I had put my creative spirit on the back burner.  Yes, I was creating decorations for the wedding and being creative in other aspects but I really hadn’t picked up a paint brush, or glued pieces to a collage in a while.  So this past week I have been trying to get the creative juices flowing and trying to find ways to nourish my creative spirit.  I realize that what still calls me after all the to do lists have been completed and I have free time it is multi-media, painting and collage.   I enjoy brushing paint onto canvas, blending colours and adding collage pieces and watch as it transforms – although I may have a long way to go before I discover my own style I must remind myself it is all about the journey and the joy that you get while being creative.  

To nourish my creative spirit I love to browse through my Somerset Magazines and now I have the latest issue of  Cloth, Paper and Scissors that I am thoroughly enjoying and I always return to my favorite book “Taking Flight – Inspirations & Techniques to give your Creative Spirit Wings” by Kelly Rae Roberts – it is a very inspirational source  for me.  I have now made a list of the projects that I want to try from this book during summer. 

Til next time  – try taking some time out to remind yourself what nourishes your creative spirit.
