I think there is a national holiday for everything these days and today is National Coloring Book day. What better day to give you a preview of my “Colorful Life” coloring book?
Coloring is still a popular pastime for many (I hope!) and I think the reason is that there is very little pressure and no special skills required. Sure, there can be some pretty fancy coloring work going on, but this is something we all learned to do as children and getting lost in the lines and the color is a great way to give your mind a break.
Expressing ourselves creatively is a huge passion of mine and is where this website and my coaching practice is headed.
“If you’re alive, you’re a creative person.” Elizabeth Gilbert
I think too often we’ve told ourselves stories about why were aren’t creative or why we are choosing to not be creative.
And I’m pretty sure that all of those stories are crap.
And I think all of the tools that I’ve learned as a coach can help to turn those stories around so you can finally unleash your inner artist. WooHOO!
You won’t have to sell all of your possessions and start drinking at noon to be an artist.
You don’t have to hand your paycheck over to Michael’s or join some scrapbooking cult.
All you have to do is play.
I want to take you from “I can’t do that” to “I made that!”
Going forward, this website will be a home to my life coaching thoughts and crafting tutorials so you can explore a new craft and fight off any mental demons that may be coming up telling you that you can’t do it.
I really do think creativity and crafting is the key. Whether that craft is cooking a meal or sewing a quilt or knitting a scarf or making a greeting card or COLORING or anything really. When you overcome your fears and objections and let your body do what it is meant to do – create, then lots of other doors in your life start to open up.
To really get in on the fun, join my new Facebook group Craft Camp where I’ll be teaching crafts and answering any questions and you can share your work with others.
And don’t forget to download the sample page of my coloring book! The full book will be coming soon, but you’ll have to be on my mailing list to get it. Click here to subscribe.
