I have signed up for two really cool artsy, inspiration/confidence building on-line classes that start in the next couple of weeks, and I'm SO excited I can hardly stand myself! Weeeeee! :)
The first class is called "Soul Restoration" and is offered by Brave Girls' Club. Since I can't go off to the mountains of Idaho for a week for the in person version (which would be super AWESOME and which has been entered five separate times on my Bucket List), this will be the next best thing. My girlie and I are going to do it together. So, we'll pick a day of the week, put on some cute aprons, cover the kitchen table with butcher paper, hang some green/turquoise/yellow streamers, break out the mod podge and do some art that is intended to clean out the clutter and redecorate our soul houses. :)
The other class is called "Taking Flight" and is taught by Kelly Rae Roberts, an artist, writer and "possibilitarian", who in six years has gone from being a part time Etsy artist to running a home decor empire! If you aren't familiar with her stuff, she does these amazing mixed media girls with simple, positive messages. Many of her girls have butterfly or angel wings, which emphasize her philosophy that we should not be afraid to, "find our creative wings and take flight toward the sky of our bliss-filled inspiration--a place where your spirt will soar."
I told you in my first blog post about some of the jobs I have held. Most of those were more "spirit souring" than "spirit soaring". Since I've been a closet poet, author, artist all my life, I'm ready, ready, READY to get some air under these rusty ol' wings. I feel a little like the Tin Man, though. Anybody got an oil can I could borrow?
In the meantime, my pink/turquoise mood continues...only this time it has wings! "Write your own songs to sing. When your bough shakes, use your wings!"
May God bless you today and give your soul lots of lift.
