Creative thinking over breakfast anyone?

Very proud to be co-creating one of the Breakfast Session series workshops with Begin Anywhere & Economy of Hours, in East London, UK.

Think colour creative playfulness over coffee, pastries & a group of like minded folk seeking new ways to be their best creative self in their creative career or anywhere creativity can be applied… it’s all about creating together to grow a creative & sharing economy.

Creatively exploring…

Best #64millionartists challenge yet… Exploring

Today, go somewhere you’ve never been before and really look. It could be a place just around the corner or somewhere further away. It could be down a corridor or in a cupboard. It could even be into a book or a box of things. Document it however you’d like to. Just explore something new….

Looking underneath, and in different ways to my everyday, familiar surroundings…

So much better than any of the themed projects we were given at art school… I had some much fun crouching around on the floor seeking out something to shoot.

Random acts 0f kindness – #everydaycreativity

Another #64millionartists challenge I liked… I enjoy the whole process of creating, sharing and the after effects of random acts of kindness.

Who am I really being kind to? The person/s who may or may not receive my act of kindness in that spirit or myself? The giver and receiver simultaneously…

This one was definately a win/win as I have a purpose to be more involved with my green fingered passions of gardening, sharing plants and being outdoors more…

Day 6 #doodle how you feel #64millionartists #everydaycreativity

Oh I thought I like this challenge a lot! I love doodling soooo much…

And when would I do said doodling as I’ve been out & about on Open To Create… creative business building today?

Post talking therapy session where I felt proud & a massive sense of shift in energies for me. And pride has such a bad rep… looks and feels expansive, joyous & blooming colourful to me!

What I’ve lost in the past… day 5 #64millionartists

Losing balance
Connection to my inner fire, passion
Too many watches to mention
Funny bones
Ha, ha, ha…
Sentimental jewellery from long dead relatives
And sometimes peace of mind

What my 8 year old shared…

It was odd inviting my inner 8 year old out of the dark closet whilst going around my getting back into work Monday after the Christmas break…

Quite hard at first to recall anything I liked or did back when I was 8… although slowly Roald Dahl, making dens and the brownies came back into mind… a picture below of what immediately came to mind. And insights did come;

  • You don’t need loads of friends, just really good ones.
  • Draw with pencils
  • Stay up late reading

Plus I got to use the notes/brainstorming/delicious doodling section of my Leonie Dawson Life workbook = double win!
