creative therapy

There’s always two responses? 🤔

Crafting can bring two kinds of thinking.

😮 I’m so not that person!

Or

Bring it on I need to craft this chaotic mind away.

The sad truth is anyone, and I do mean anyone can craft. The stigma, the ending result has to be a masterpiece of ultimate proportions. There’s that negative mind trying to take away a sweet piece of zen.

It is not the outcome of crafting, it’s the creating process. It’s the release of everything into the movement of your hands. When chaos arises I need to either workout to release or craft. If I want that double-decker euphoria, I do both.

Being creative without expectation of an outcome. This is an amazing tool that so many of us take for granted.

I’m not an artist

I’m so not a creative person

I could never do that

All mindset that defeats the process before we even get started. Next time you just need a mindless way to release stress, start to doodle. Draw random shapes. You know the kind we learned how to draw in kindergarten. You’d be amazed how shapes turn into stories without even trying. You may surprise yourself and find a hidden creative bone that’s been shaking in fear all these years.

I joined Chalk Couture to take the guesswork out of creating. Oh no she’s selling! No, I’m defining my pic. I’m in no way an artist. I leave that to my very talented daughters. With this creative outlet and freedom, I feel like an artist. Plus the art is not all in the finished product. It’s also in the creating adventure. The blueprint of creativity that brings forth that finished product. That’s why I love inking clothes. It’s mindless yet immensely cathartic. I can’t mess it up. If I do I soon discover it’s a beautiful “mess up”

Let go off assumption and try something new. Who cares if “you’re not that person”

Isn’t it more about the journey than the destination? I tend to think so.
