Finish It.

It's funny I was working on a collage of photos from a recent girls weekend. I was thinking... I'm done with this for the night... it's not finished but it needs something and I'm not sure what. I drifted out into the interwebs and popped over to my favorite blog.

And read this.


Wow. JUST the whisper and push I needed.

Thank you universe.

Happy tears over here.

I write blog posts in my head, but I never actually write them down. I write posts in blogger, and I never hit publish. I start to over think it - it has to be so good... It's probably not good enough. I start a painting, and I never finish it. I sketch out the cutest illustration, and then I don't add the ink and watercolor. I start designing a logo and abandon it because IT'S NOT PERFECT.

Do you do ever do this?
(Well at least I know Leonie does!)

How good does it feel when we actually finish something?
Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh so good!
This is EXACTLY what I needed to hear right now, today.
We are perfect just the way we are.
Finish it.
DO it.
The painting, the post, the photo, the logo.
It's a masterpiece (what you are going to go finish!)

Inspired... I finished the collage!

(Thank you Goddess Leonie!)

Breaking Through

I captured this pic at the dog park yesterday morning and it pretty much sums up how I've been feeling lately... trying to break through.
Have you ever felt like your creative spirit has gone into hibernation? I've been feeling my creative spirit isn't shining as bright as it should be. I don't mean this in a bad way. It's strange how I'll be so inspired and creating like mad and then just like that - it shuts off. We have had such a mild winter here - It really hasn't been as depressing as it can be. We've had almost no snow and the temps have been warmer than usual. The crazy creative runs (and I don't mean runs like running on the street) haven't really been frequent enough lately. Why, I wonder? I know there are times for everything/seasons in our lives, for family, for fun, for exploring, for growing, and even time for hibernating. Last year about this time I was really getting into the Goddess Circle - and all the meditations she offered and classes, I was constantly creating (while working full time!) And I got to thinking... why aren't I creating like I was last year at this time? 

When I close my eyes and ask my creative spirit what it needs...
I hear...
Time to follow those passions. Time to explore them. Time to sit with them. Time to mull them over. Time to prefect them. Time to create. Time to get inspired. Time for just me and my passion. Time for my dreams. MAKE THE TIME.
Clear and create space in my life, and  in my busy schedule.
Because if I don't who will?
My husband won't. My best friend won't. My mom won't.
It has to come from me.
I have to make it a priority.
How do you make art and creative time a priority? Do you pencil yourself into your planner?
