Exploring the Power of Intuitive Collage with a New Mini Muse

MINI MUSE THUMBNAIL

One with Nature ~ a new mini muse!

It’s been over a year since I created a mini muse. I don’t know why I’ve waited so long! I absolutely love the process of creating on a tiny little substrate. I’d forgotten just how fun and free the process is. I love working with the tiny scraps of paper and fabric, and how just the littlest detail can change so much. Being able to start and finish a piece of art no matter the size feels really good.

Creating intuitive collage art is such a deeply healing proces…

Hello Creative Friends,

I recently listened to a new episode, ‘5 Fun Ideas to Shake Up Your Life & Get out of a Rut’ on the Mel Robbins Podcast, and it was the most perfect timing. I had already been thinking a lot about how much I benefit from breaks in my routine. Over the weekend, I tried a new yoga class with a friend and I shared with her how wellness retreats are a much-needed reset for me. The habits I pick up at these retreats often become part of my lifestyle, and their benefits last for…

I am halfway through a painting and feeling kind of stuck. There are things I really like about it and things I don’t like very much at all.

After a fun half hour of exploring, I came home with fabric, lace, an embroidered tablecloth AND a brand new beautiful set of watercolour paints that will be wonderful for taking with me on a trip or into the woods.

Whatever you are able to ignore until later.  Do that.

If you don’t want to do anything. Then don’t

Honour yourself by allowing yourself to …

We instinctively seek it out when under stress or experiencing emotional trauma. It creates a feeling of …
