It’s been busy here – quiet online but not in the studio! I am working on something new and I’d love your input if you’ve got it. I am in week 1 of “Creative Fitness”. What does that mean? Well I’m trying to put myself through a bootcamp of sorts to really reboot and relaunch myself get myself WAY more productive and in better habits.
Creativity is a muscle I always say – and like every muscle if you’re not using it… you’re losing it.
The good news is, you can always kick start your habits and reboot. Creative Fitness is going to be a YouTube series – each week I’m taking on challenges, then reporting back on how it went and what worked, what didn’t.
If YOU have suggestions (wild or tame) I would love to hear them. I have decided to be wide open and assume I may need to take on some totally new takes on how I do what I do. While I’m at it – I’m getting creative with physical fitness too.
Today is day 3, so I’ll be sharing the first video and more info soon. I am also working on unpacking from Creativation trade show, launching a new class, and much more. A week just flew by so quickly – but I’m excited about this new idea and these new habits.
Have a great week –

We all get in our ‘ruts’ in normal life and our creative life. When I am like that, I either learn a new skill, put away my go-to technique for a time, or go back a technique which I haven’t used for a long time. Either way, it is something new and different and pushes me a little. And I even allow myself a little retail therapy for some new supplies. 🙂 For you, maybe push yourself to do a tag, page, or mixed media canvas without stencil, stickers, scan-cut or stamps. Think about other ways to get the look and textures you like without them – do only freeform textures, cut-outs by hand and sktetch out / write out the details you would like. Just some thoughts…
I would love to see you cover “stash management.” While I’m better than I used to be, I still struggle with getting things in my stash used, deciding what to keep and what to let go of when trying to clean out, and determining what new things to buy. It’s a tall order, I know, but in your other classes, you’ve definitely helped me with this. I think others would benefit from your experience on this topic, too.
Love the stash management suggestion, have taken some of your ideas on using up paper. I’m going to ask for more mixed media, something I think you do tremendously, in cards and scrapbooks.
I would love to see you use pocket cards for other projects than pocket pages. I have so many cards I love but struggle to find ways to use them all up.
Looking forward to this new series – I’m always looking for new ideas. I tend to scrap (and make cards) using the same basic designs so would love to see some new ideas for traditional 12×12 layouts. Also would love any organizational tips or using what I have (versus buying the latest and greatest) supplies.
YOu are a genius!! :o)
I would love to see a watercolor background or partial background for a layout or pocket page. Lots of great ideas!
I love this idea … one of my goals for 2018 is to spend at least 15 minutes every day doing something creative
