Creativity - Preventative Medicine

How are you doing out there?

Are you experiencing an emotional roller-coaster like me?  Most of the time I am pretty fine.  Feeling thankful for so much – especially living remotely and being able to get outside in the sunshine.   Yet, as the days tick past they are blurring together. My normal aversion to any sort of news source gets usurped by this global catastrophe and I find myself more than occasionally scrolling through death and infection statistics.  

Ugggg.  

Our little town in the hills has 5 confirmed cases.  

Rather than spiral down that rabbit hole, let me remind myself (and you) that we have a choice and can actually just STOP. Stop scrolling, stop the notifications on our phones, stop getting sucked into the vortex of doom, gloom, quarantine and social distancing. We can make a pact with ourselves to be aware and choose to fill our heads with positive uplifting creativity. Staying informed can be done in 10 minutes or less per day.

Being head down, busy hands, hip deep in creative projects is REALLY helping me stay focused on my power and ability to shine light in this darkness.  

Each weekday morning I have been offering creative textile recycling live tutorials on my FB page. While I would love to stream these daily doses of creative uplift on all my social media channels, I live in a remote area with limited internet access which only allows for FB lives – so, come on over.  Monday morning at 11 am EST and join the fun.  If you want to get started before then take a look at past episodes.  You will run into some of the amazing contestants taking part in Crispina’s Scrapbox Challenge 2020 too.  Stay tuned right here for a daily dose of eye-candy. I'll be posting some more of the amazing imagery popping into my inbox from the magic makers involved in 'The Challenge' as this brand new column – Journal gets some footing.

Sending Love.
