Happily I've been able to create most days this past couple of weeks which has brought me plenty of joy. Creating seems to calm me and ignite my spirit all at the same time. It continues to be a magical way of boosting my wellbeing.
In addition, for the first time in many years I was well enough to attend a craft fair with my jewellery.
I managed quite a few sales and a few custom orders. Even better was the boost to my confidence and the pleasure of meeting some lovely people; fellow stall holders and customers.
- Have you tried something new recently that made you nervous but turned out to be beneficial and/or enjoyable?
- When is the last time you pushed your creative life in a direction that took you out of your comfort zone? What was the result?
On the way to the craft fair, at one point, I was tempted to turn back and chicken out. I'm so glad I didn't. Its hard to publically display things you've created because you are then open to opinion and judgement. Over the past year I've discovered that the rewards are worth the aprehension. I get a real buzz when someone enjoys something I have created. Whether a picture on a wall or a bracelet being worn, spreading a little enjoyment and joy feels good.
Wishing you a Happy and Creative week/weekend!
