Creator


During the Winter months I tend to find myself quieting down, moving more gently and gravitating towards all things COZY. I've always found comfort in creating with my hands. There is a special sort of magic involved with taking something like fiber, wood or copper and turning it into something much more beautiful than its original form. Truly, there is magic involved in all things creative.
Take music for example, the instruments are tools just waiting to be touched and plucked...
 waiting for someone to come along and make a melody out of what was once silence.

There is just something so powerful about being a creator and honoring your potential to create.
We all have that potential! I love being able to recognize that in another person and having the opportunity to support their craft; be it music, artwork, textiles... you name it!

If it's important to you to keep the arts alive and thriving,
then the best way that you can show your support is to simply Show Up.
Here are some ways in which you can do so:

* Attend local events and markets that feature Artists.
*Buy something from an artist!
*Find a gallery near you.
*Enroll in classes for art/craft lessons.
*Exchange knowledge and skills with other creators.
*Find a local band that you love and purchase their music or go to their shows.
*Shop handmade during the holiday season.
*Buy art from children and teens, encouraging them.
*Donate to charities that involve keeping arts and music alive.
*Buy directly from your fav. creators at events or their online shops.
*WORD OF MOUTH:Tell other people about your favorite artists!


& on that note...

I wanted to share some of the beautiful crocheted creations that have came from my own hands!
These meditation mats began with me wanting to make something for myself and for my home. I've always wanted a handmade rug and it dawned on me that I had all of the supplies needed to make my own. I was also longing to make something that brought me peace and felt like meditation when creating it... So that is how my idea for the meditation mat was born! I loooooved the one that I made for our home so much and found so much joy in creating it that I soon felt called to create more and offer them to others for their own sacred space.

There is something so beautiful about being able to amplify a space with colors, textures, smell, sound and so on. I feel more and more like part of my offerings is to be able to help others do that. To inspire and help people to create their own little corner of peace, solitude, beauty- whatever the seeker is seeking. There is something to be said for creating a space with intention. I really feel like stepping into that zone will charge you. Isn't it wild how something so simple as seeing a little color or feeling a little softness can shift our energy and emotions so much? I really like to play with that!

Weekly To-Do List | FREE Template Download

So much of my focus right now is going towards organizing various elements of my life.
I'm feeling like that's going to be a big theme for this year, ORGANIZATION
In doing so, I find myself making creative little list to help motivate me and guide me through meeting my tasks and goals throughout the week. My sun sign is Virgo and well, I'm certainly all about planning and checking things off list. In fact, I've found that my productivity rate and ability to simply get sh!t done is WAY higher when I am writing list for myself versus winging it all day.
So, for me the list-making is an absolute MUST. 

Since I find it to be so helpful to me personally...
I wanted to share some of my templates here on the blog.
Feel free to download and print a copy out for yourself!

First, I'd like to offer my weekly to-do list!
*FOCUS* is the mantra that I chose for this month.
I especially love the "JUST for me" section,
a prompt to highlight the importance of self-care.

Tarot Offering

Hi loves!
I've revamped the blog and added a few new special features,
one of them being an offering for donation-based tarot readings!

I'm making this post to simply share with a larger audience, considering the little tab at the top of the page my be easy to miss and by posting this the readings will be more likely to show up in search engines for someone who desires a quick reading but doesn't want to drop much money.

I felt called to do this in order to make my services for tarot more accessible to everyone.
With this option, you could receive a reading even if you only had $1 to give.

If you are new to tarot and have any questions, feel free to leave a comment below and I'd be happy to share my process and knowledge with you! Anytime you feel called to return and receive a reading, simply click on the "TAROT" tab located at the top of this blog.

xo,
Courtney
