Springtime Workshop~Lifeweavings

Hi Everyone! If you are like me, Springtime will be a welcome guest! 🙂

In April the creativity workshop, Lifeweavings: A Creative Journey, is scheduled again at Eucalyptus Massage & Healing Arts! 

Please join me and other creative people to explore, inspire, and share your creativity and design process….whether you are a painter, jewelry-maker, writer, crafter, art quilter, or all-around creative person!!

Each person will be encouraged to use their creativity to explore and experiment within their own design process (in your own chosen area/or medium), and take steps towards their own unique goals…even small  mini-movements!  🙂

In the Studio~Summer News*

In the studio, this summer has been a busy time! I have been gathering new inspirations and beginning new works of contemporary textile art!

We are also getting ready for a workshop in August at Eucalyptus Massage & Healing Arts.  They so graciously hosted my first solo art exhibit, Lifeweavings: A Creative Journey, in February, and I look forward to meeting with them again to explore, encourage, and share with others who are taking their own creative journeys!

Lifeweavings: A Creative Journey

A Creativity Work-Playshop!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

What do we gather during our lives that influences, inspires, and contributes to our artistic abilities, interests, skills…and our designs & creations!?

We will explore the life stages and use creativity to experiment with the design process, using our own  artistic/creative medium of expression (painters, jewelry-makers, writers, etc.)! You will be encouraged to take steps–even small ones, or micro-movements!–towards your own unique goals as a creative person…

Interactive activities, mind-mapping, and discussions will be used as a guide for considering what creativity is, generating new ideas, and sharing your inspirations with other artists/creative people!

Our overall goal will be to have fun, enjoy sharing ideas, and being inspired!!

Making a Home

Birdhouses dot the landscape of many people’s yards. The houses come in many shapes, colors, and sizes but share a common purpose—to provide a dry, cozy spot to sleep, get out of the rain, and build a nest for off-spring. In these small houses that birds “rent” for a season, they make a home.

Our homes, like the birds, may be housed in any number of styles, colors, and sizes, and also share a common purpose—to provide a safe, secure place to sleep, eat meals, and raise our children. But beyond the physical house, our homes can also be havens for a sense of belonging, protection, structure, and education.

Every family member has a need to belong to others in a group, while at the same time be accepted as a unique individual. A sense of belonging can be felt in a home with mutual respect and caring between everyone in the family.

A home provides protection against the risks in life that the family may face. There are family qualities that help each member meet and overcome the challenges they encounter.

Home gives a structure that can provide a foundation of positive values, love for one another, and a love of life itself.

Along with this structure, each individual in the family can be educated and challenged to grow and develop within their potential. And, growth and development does not end with childhood! Our homes can provide a sense of belonging, protection, structure, and education to the family living there. 

By observing the birdhouses in the backyard, I am reminded that while a house is safe shelter…We can make a home
