Celebrating Creativity Tribe: 500th Post

Earlier this week I announced over at Creativity Tribe that I was celebrating a year since fleshing the blog out into a website.  Doing a quick calculation of the numbers, I quickly realized I was one post shy of 500!  That gave me two milestones to celebrate.


So I decided to do an art giveaway.  Hope you will hop over and join the fun.  After all, this little blog is where all the magic started!

Creativity Tribe 2013


Happy New Year! 

Creativity Tribe is gearing up for an exciting 2013. As may know, I got a new website in August that is thriving.  I like to come back here to my old stomping grounds to update everyone on the progress I am making. I miss this sweet little blog-home. But, looking forward, I can’t help but swell up with anticipation for the plans I have ahead of me. I hope you will come check out all the love I am spinning for you.

This Sensational Life: I am hosting a blogging series featuring posts about living a life that pays attention to the senses….BUT I am not stopping with the 5 senses we grew up with. I have expanded the definition so that we can explore some of the subtle but moving aspects of life ….like….the sense of knowing, the sense of nature….and more. I believe by paying attention to parts of life that we tend to be oblivious to, we can create more SENSE-ational lives.

Creativity Tribe Party Line: Join my monthly calls where we’re celebrating life’s best and grooving together despite all the rest. During each call, I share tips, tricks, or hints for improving and understanding some aspect of life to help you move into the flow of a life well lived.  I will open the call for questions and hot seat coaching.  The first call…. 5 Secrets to Getting Out of Your Own Way Everyday in 2013 and Getting on with a Sensational New You.  You can register for the series here. And meet me the second Wednesday in January for our inaugural call!  Party Time!

Coaching {you + me}:  When I think of coaching, it is all about a relation built to help inspire, encourage, and motivate.  As the new year begins, I am looking forward to creating more special relationships like this. The Party Line will be a great way to get a feel for the work I do, the care I give, and a few of the tricks I have up my sleeve for making the best of what life gives you. You are welcome to find out more about how I work and my coaching packages.

Head over to Creativity Tribe for all the detail.

Free StressLess Holiday Cheer Party

Creativity Tribe Update

I thought I would pop over here every once in awhile and let you know about what is going on at my new website, Creativity Tribe.

It has been two months since I made the switch over and the place is really taking shape. I am blogging along with Art Every Day Month and sharing about the big realizations I have made after facing my fear of death. I also have been experiencing HUGE creative epiphanies after attending Tracy Verdugo’s Paint Mojo Texas Retreat hosted by Selah Gay.

This week I finished my training to be a Life Coach and am starting to work with people on their big dreams.  Life is filled with all kinds of goodness.  I am living the Creativity Tribe life. Won’t you join me?

Where Dreams Live

I talk about dreams a lot. I have always been a dreamer, imagining the great What if’s in life. In my early 20’s I envisioned a life for myself that included speaking at conferences, being a published author, teaching at retreats, sharing my art with others, and creating meaningful experiences where they might get in touch with the creative spirit within. The dream was so big that it always accompanied doubt.

Today, I am sitting on the threshold of a new place in my life. I am doing my dream. Now, I get to do it better and begin envisioning the next big What if’s.

I invite you to step through the doorway with me for the this part of my journey. I have created a space with room to grow, room to stretch, and room for big parties. It’s the new home of the Creativity Tribe. The website I have wanted for over a year is now a reality!

Dreams do come true!

Making the Leap {you & me}

I am feeling a bit emotion during this post. Yep, there they are, the tears. This is my 353rd post in 26 months. I didn’t know I could write that much or that consistently. The tears, you must be wondering why?

Well, from day one, I knew I had a dream to fulfill that this blog would be a stepping stone to. My dream was to have a website, to offer my art, workshops, information about retreats I was teaching, and to create a space where people might want to engage their creative nature, safely, but with a kind of gusto you only find when you feel inspired. And yah, I wanted to be part of that inspiration.

Well, this blog has fulfilled its calling. In a few days, Sunday to be precises, I am launching my website. I am smiling now, thinking of it.

It isn’t ready. I still have lots to learn and add and ….learn. But it is coming together and as I learn to build it, more ideas about what it could be are forming.

The tears are back. But they are good. They are about rich gratitude for those of you who have been following me along on this journey. For those of you who have trusted me to speak some morsel of truth every once in awhile. For those who read in quiet and don’t say much, who offer “likes” occasionally or who tell your friends about me. For those who get me. For those who feel a connections.

Thank you. From the bottom of my heart for joining me, supporting me, and celebrating me on one of the most exquisite journeys of my life.  You are why I do what I do. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE witnessing people daring to create. It is one of the bravest, most beautiful, most moving, most ALIVE things I know of!

I hope you will make the leap with me to my website. You will get to see it in its infancy, all wrinkly and crying for a bottle. But before long, it will be entertaining you and helping get connected to your own new ALIVEness.

To keep up with my adventures over the weekend, you can join me on the Creativity Tribe Facebook Page. I will post updates there on my trip to Austin where I am meeting with the folks at WP Engine as part of Startup Training School’s ONE K in 1 Day challenge to help 1000 women (yep, I am one of them) publish their own websites. It is all kinds of empowering!

Note to Self

The stretch to publish my website, now just days away, has me doing a lot of positive self-talk practices. All sorts of gremlins can rise up in hopes of bringing me down. But I know better than to give in, the prize is in sight!
