Call me crazy but I just can’t get enough of this stuff. I think that one of the reasons I gave my two week notice at Michaels is because I didn’t have enough time to do my creative outlets and I was starting to feel frustrated. (Yes, I have decided that working in retail is not my cup of tea and yes, I am still going to do my A to Z Challenge on Michaels – just in case you were wondering).
I am in the beginning phase of two new projects. One is called the Studio Yearbook, Spring Edition. It was developed by Jamie Ridler, a wonderful mentor and creative spirit that I have been following for a while now. She is the one who taught me about the Full Moon Dreamboards and the Vision Cards so I was really excited when she said she had created a Studio Yearbook. Unlike a regular calendar, this “yearbook” is seasonal. The initial offering is the Spring Edition and I was one of the first 100 people to get a paper copy of this really cool tool. It goes for the months of spring from March 20 to June 20.
It comes with a blank cover and this is how I decided to decorate it. I used the First 100 sticker that came on the packaging as the center for the top flower.
The second project I have is from the same wonderful woman who directed us in Tell It Color, Liz Lamoreux. This one is called Tell It Collage. Each day for the next 21 days I’ll be getting a message from Liz with prompts and ideas for collages to dig deep into the person I am or want to be.
Here is my first page, the intention. This picture is a larger version of the one I used in the yearbook.
Registration will be open throughout the course so there is still time to do this one too if you like.
While these specific practices aren’t going to make me any money per say, I am practicing new techniques and gaining insights and I think that will translate to more production with my cards and such. The more you work with the ideas of your dreams, the easier they are to bring to life. Plus, I am connecting with a great bunch of people who are very supportive of the craftiness of life and that is always helpful.
We still have about a week left for me to meander in March, getting ready for the big A to Z in April. What are you working on this month? Share!
