012: Inspiration Reach

Inspiration can be hard to come by some days. You might have to step out of your routine, out of the norm and out of what you normally create. Like one of my favorite author’s Julia Cameron suggests in her book, The Artist’s Way, sometimes you have to take yourself on an artist date. There are a lot of places you can go to when pulling inspiration to create and in this episode that’s exactly what we’ll be talking about. I’ll be talking about why you might want to consider expanding your usual creative activity and trying something completely new. I also discuss some of the ebbs and flows we go through as creators. I want to encourage you to try your own inspiration reach. Try something new, something different or maybe even something you used to enjoy but no longer do. Set your ambiance by playing music that fills you up, light a delicious smelling candle or even try changing the location that you’re creating from. The possibilities are endless! What you’ll find in this episode: A spotlight of a creator that’s been inspiring me The default places people search for inspiration The differences between ideas and the motivation to create How inspiration ebbs and flows Why you should reach out of your niche for rejuvenation How you can expand the work you consume and create Links: Morgan's Instagram The Artist's Way Introduction to Hand Lettering & Faux Calligraphy Ready for a fun activity to feel less stress?

I know that a lot of people struggle with finding the time to create and I have even had days where I’ve used the “no time” excuse too….

011: Making Time to Create

010: Comparison Stacking

Comparing yourself to others keeps you from creating. We all spend way too much time beating ourselves up and thinking about how we’re lacking or how we should be better. This stops us from spending time building, creating and doing the things that we actually enjoy. But I want you to know that you are amazing, just as you are. We’re all guilty of comparing ourselves to the mom on Instagram with the clean house or the Pinterest perfect birthday party. But I want to encourage you today to center yourself and distance yourself from the trap of comparison stacking. In this episode, I talk about how I realized I was comparison stacking and why we compare ourselves with other people. I discuss paying attention to the things you find you’re comparing yourself (and your worth) to and why you shouldn’t look for your worth in being “good” at certain activities. What you’ll find in this episode: A creative memory from last summer How I realized I was comparison stacking Why we compare ourselves with other people How to center yourself so you don’t allow comparing to weigh heavily on you Why you need to pay attention to what you’re comparing with a lot Why you should avoid the belief that your worth relies on being good at something An exercise you can do when you find yourself comparison stacking Links: Perfect Pen Pouch Starter Kit Tombow Fudenosuke Brush Pen Tombow Dual Brush Pen Art Marker Instagram post about lettering in London Melissa and Doug Blocks & Building Sets Ready for a fun activity to feel less stress?

009: Creating with Kids

When you encourage your kids to get creative it’s important to let them take the lead. Introduce them to supplies, options and ideas but know that you don’t have to force it. I’ve noticed from creating with my own children that sometimes, it’s our own expectations around what a creative activity will look like that leads us to disappointment. There are a few things you can do to make creating with kids less stressful and more fun! Take some time to let go of those expectations and instead focus on creating intentional thoughts about the activity you’re encouraging them to take part in. Knowing your “why” around getting the kids together to create will help you to get through some of those annoyances that happen along the way. In this episode, you’ll hear the tips that help me when creating with my own children. I chat about finding the right creative learning style for creating for each of your kids and the importance of the words you speak. Remember, it’s okay if it’s not perfect, it’s okay if it’s messy and it’s even okay if you or your kids get frustrated! What you’ll find in this episode: A mindful moment breathing exercise My story about trying to create with my daughter Why you should take a moment and pay attention to expectations The reasons you need to make intentional thoughts around creating Tips that help me when creating with my kids How to find what’s right for each of your children: open-ended vs. step by step Why you should be mindful about the dialogue around your creations and your kid’s creations Links: 5 Creative Steps to Less Stress & More Joy Ready for a fun activity to feel less stress?

009: Creating with Kids

008: Failure Freedom

I often hear people tell me they’re afraid to try lettering because they might fail. Our brains fear the thought of failure to the extent that it literally stops people in their tracks. So many people never start something because they’re afraid. Can you imagine if you never started chasing after a dream because of that fear of failure? In this episode, I am talking about what it really means to fail and why you need to take a step back to examine the expectations you have for yourself. I explore how the real problem is often the story that your brain is telling you. I talk about why you should take a few minutes to play the “what if” game when you’re feeling fear and why giving yourself the permission and freedom to fail will bring you joy. What you’ll find in this episode: An invitation to create and indulge in 5 minutes of mindful creativity What it really means to fail and why you should examine your expectations Why you should play the “what if” game with yourself Why you should remain committed to create The joy of creating even when the thing you’re creating is imperfect Links: Chalk Art 101 Online Course Ready for a fun activity to feel less stress?

006: Guilt-Free Creativity

Why is it SO hard to invest time, energy and money into our own creative pursuits? As adults, we’re constantly encouraging children to learn, grow and increase their skills and creativity but when it comes to ourselves… We don’t make it a priority! In this episode, I am talking about the ways in which you can begin to indulge in guilt-free creativity. You deserve to make it happen for yourself and your own wellbeing. All it takes is just a little bit of effort, changing the way you think about it and making the steps to make it happen because nobody is going to make it happen for you.

005: 5 Creative Steps to Less Stress

Mindfulness and meditation is great in theory but sometimes when we actually put it into practice, it’s not quite as zen as we imagined that it would be. The benefits that meditative practices can have on your life are nearly endless. But most people face challenges when incorporating meditation into their everyday life. Things like kids climbing all over you or a phone call that disrupts you mid-practice. The truth is, that’s completely normal. In this episode, I am giving you an overview of my free guide, 5 Creative Steps to Less Stress & More Joy. You’ll hear me chat about the benefits of meditation, why you shouldn’t expect perfection with meditation and how these exercises can be used to ground yourself (or as a tool when you’re overly stressed out).

004: Your Best Tool for Creating

Do you know what your best tool for creating is? It may not be quite what you think… actually, I think it may surprise you. Your brain is one of the most powerful tools that you have for getting creative. Think about it. Have you ever struggled to start a creative project? You wanted to try something new but your brain was telling you, “I am not good enough to do XYZ.” Well, that may be because our brains have been conditioned since the beginning of time to use these default settings: seek pleasure, avoid pain, preserve energy. In this episode, you’ll hear my own experience of how my brain was hindering me from learning how to use a new brush pen. I discuss why you should learn more about your brain and why you should let go of the features of the brain that aren’t serving you anymore. You’ll also hear how you can experience life differently once you learn how your brain operates. What you’ll find in this episode: Her disappointment of using a pen she thought would turn her c...
