Good, Good, Good, Good Intentions!
There are many things we do every day that we don't really see as creative-things like cook a meal, clean the house, etc. Cooking a meal definitely takes creativity! You have to know what seasonings to use, put together the recipe, and know how long to cook the dish, all of which takes creative thinking. I bet you hadn't thought of cooking as a creative journey! You probably only figured a chef could be creative in the kitchen, but all of us are creating when we put together a meal. Little things like that are a creative endeavor!
My other intention for this week is to organize some of my art supplies, and make it where they are easier to get to, therefore I will actually follow through with the art I want to create, instead of just settling for whatever medium I can reach at the time I get inspiration. I am a prolific obsessive-compulsive, and when I am hit with an impulse, I have a hard time not just going with it, regardless of the materials I have handy, when sometimes it isn't such a good idea. So, I am going to have to try to tame the OCD a bit! I have a weird phobia about not wasting art supplies, but I actually end up wasting them, by not using the mediums/techniques I really need to create something good.
So, if you set intentions for yourself this week, what are they? I would love to hear them if you want to leave a note in the "COMMENTS" section.
Also, don't forget about my two FREE give aways I am having! I am leaving the contest open until December 15th, so contact your friends and have them sign up for my blog here, and I will enter you and your friend(s) in the drawings for free 6 months of journal prompts, as well as some folkart Extreme Glitter (two separate contests), which is an awesome product! Sugar glitter in a clear base, just paint it on, and it stays where you put it! No more flaking off of glitter and it comes in some really awesome, beautiful colors, even one called "Hologram"! By the way, the more friends you get to sign up, the more times you will be entered in the drawings! That's right, you can enter more than once! Just let me know who your friend(s) are, and I will know to assign them to you so I will know how many times to enter you in the drawings. Plus, if your friends get someone to sign up, the same rules go for them-the more that sign up, the more times everyone is entered!
So, that is all for now, have a great week, and Happy Creating! Be sure to make yourself some intentions, and it will help you to be more focused for the week and more stress-free!
