Share a creative project you undertook this year (art, writing, DIY, cooking, home decoration, crafts, photography … whatever comes to mind). How do you use your creativity to express yourself?
This year, I stumbled across a workshop that literally Changed. My. Life. I discovered self portraiture from a wonderful & inspiring woman, Vivivenne McMaster…and her workshop called Wading In! It amazed me how ONE thing can make such a dramatic shift in your life. I began looking at myself, both inside & out, more lovingly and realized I’m just perfect as just ME.
After becoming hooked on photography, I started adding all these quotes that I have saved over the years to my photos. It just seemed to give them more meaning! Then I even dug out some of my poetry and added it to some photos. This was so inspiring as I have always wanted to do something creative with my poetry. It even made me pick up my pencil again and try writing, which I haven’t done in quite some time.
I didn’t get in as much painting as I would have like to in 2011, but photography kinda of took over my life! :-) In 2012, I would loooooooooove to figure out a way to combine my photography & painting. C’mon muse…show me the way!!!
