I feel out of touch but not alone. Thank you all for all the 'heart'felt comments left on my tribute post for my friend and friend's family. I really appreciate it and I know that Sandra will be touched when I print up the post and comments and give them all to her. The sincerity of your comments and the sense of community I've experienced is beyond words, thank you, thank you!
As you can imagine, I've been up to pretty much nothing this week other than work. Motivation is at a low point but I know that's only a temporary feeling. With time, I will be back in my groove. Work (professionally and artistically) helps to heal the wounds.
Have you used art as a healing tool? I know I have on many occasions, often times for months at a time. It's helped me sooth my pain, heal the wounds, and come to some sort of peace with whatever it is going on. If you are one that just wishes you could paint or do something artistically, stop wishing and start doing! ESPECIALLY if you are going through a trying time in your life. There's something extremely therapeutic with the peaceful repetition and escape that you find while immersed in a creative project.
My March giveaway is going to help you jumpstart your creativity, I'm going to give away a painting and art supply goody pack. You'll have a few canvases, paints, paintbrushes, stamps, tags and more to play with to get you going or to add to your artistic collection. I'll also add one of my mini heart canvases that are similar to my blog header 'green apple' Sweet Heart Canvas (but in a different color).
How to enter? Simple tell me how creativity has helped you in your life? It doesn't necessarily have to be about healing, maybe it's given you a new sense of purpose in life. Perhaps finding your artsy mojo has increased your self esteem. Whatever it is, leave a comment and you will be entered to win my Art supply Giveaway.
Contest ends March 31st!
