Its time I wrote for the 12 Secrets of Highly Creative Women book group. This weeks chapter was all about consulting with guides. I have created several circles of guides for myself. First the Glitter Sisters are a group of woman I met at Violette's message board. We have shared so much together and last year we created a retreat in Sedona, Arizona where we could all meet. It was a wonderful meeting of Artistic Souls that continues to this day.
I have connected with other women by just visiting their blogs and having a dialogue with them through comments and emails. I have been encouraged by others comments on my work and by seeing what they do online. Its nourished me in many ways. The bloggers who host events like drawing for a month or how to be brave or journaling for a month or creating every day have offered me opportunities for growth and community. I thank them for their efforts.
I have fewer local sources but there are still a couple women I regularly consult on ideas and plans for creative pursuits. I don't think I could continue to create without the support of other women who are artists and writers.
I truly believe in passing it on. A friend mentioned that if they could draw doing Art journal pages would be more fun. so I offered to teach them to draw. I will be passing on a little of what I know this week. I also like to share on my blog and in videos I have made. I feel sharing what supplies and tools I have used and my process of creating will help someone else.
