The Artistic Mother By shona Cole

Its here The Artistic Mother.....A practical Guide for fitting in creativity into your life by Shona Cole.

I have only had time to have a flick through it did only arrive yesterday , but its full of eye candy and there also a 12 week project section. which I'm so looking forward to doing my mojo has been lacking big time its not that i don't want to create but there just don't seem to be anything there if you know what i mean the intentions there but the ideas ain't so I'm hoping this book will give my creative mojo a big kick up the bum.

I hope the Book does what you hope it will do.I am just the opposite at the mo lots of ideas and unable to carry them out. Thank you for your Hug. I was feeling quite sorry for myself last night :-} and somehow offloading it did help too.

I am decidedly a all or nothing creative. Either I have lots of ideas or none at all! You are definitely going in the right direction... sometimes a jump start is needed! We are fortunate enough to live in a college town and visiting their art exhibits or sometimes just roaming the halls can start me back in some kind of direction. I think what derails me the most is when I do something and I have a major fail. It is hard to get back on that horse. Have a great day and enjoy your book!

I've had the book for a few weeks and I'm really enjoying it. It's got great projects and info. You should also join Trudy's group. It's just another way to get support while fitting a little more art into every day.

Hi Crissi, thanks for visiting my blog. My advice for creative block is to start a collage a day project!! Lack of time, rather than ideas, has always been my problem. So by committing myself to 3SIXTY5, I have forced myself to find the time I "don't have." So far, it's working! In spite of being increasingly sleep-deprived...! Good luck with your projects!
