Do you wish you had the time to be artistic?
For years I wished I could make time to do art. I was so busy driving my kids around, running a photography business, and feeling worn out and empty. My hands wanted to make something, my heart yearned to create… but I didn’t know where to start. I wasn’t as good as my head wanted to be.
When have you felt creative?
Maybe it was making something at school, or doodling a cute note to a friend. Maybe it was a painting night last month with your girlfriends. Maybe it was writing your personal history in your journal, or collecting old memories to display at your parent’s 30th anniversary celebration. Maybe you haven’t made anything since elementary school and you’ve forgotten how exciting it was to drag that soft brush across the macaroni glued to your paper.
Creativity is part of us.
One of the podcasts I listen to (I’ll have to go back and find it) said “When people say I don’t have a creative bone in my body, replace creative with curious, and suddenly that sentence seems so silly. You don’t have a curious bone in your body?”
What have you always wished you could do?
Do you ever wish you could take a ceramics class? A photography class? A class to have beautiful lettering? What does your heart tell you to try?
Women Create Weekly was born.
I have enjoyed being a professional photographer since 2006. As I supported my family for many years, I always wished I had time to do fun crafting/creating things. Now years later, dishes and homeschooling seem to crowd out creating.
But that’s changing.
In the beginning of 2017 an idea began to form, to help women make time for creating. I spent months beginning my own journey to reoccurring creativity, and began to explore in clay, colored pencils and paints again. In 2018, I officially formed Women Create Weekly. I am so excited about the things that are on the horizon. You are going to be able to join me into a long creative friendship, as I lead you through projects of all kinds: paper making, desserts, embossing, calligraphy, wall art, crochet, wood carving, … and the list is ever-growing.
