Happy New Year! I love this time of the year that gives us a little time to reflect, regroup, and re-imagine where we want our lives to grow. Several years ago, I started this creative journey, painting and creating just about anything I could get my hands on. I began to really struggle with the balance between my career, and the deep pull I was feeling towards a more creative life. I mean… it was pulling HARD! Have you ever felt that?
The last two years have been completely transformative. I left my career of 30 years, left my home town of 32 years, and began a new, creative journey. My husband, fully supportive, never wavered. Even when we could hardly make our house payment, or when we received notices of insufficient funds from our bank. He just kept on saying, “This is your calling Cara, just keep going.” So that’s what I did. That’s what I am doing.
Two years of growing and learning, staying up all hours of the night (thank you menopause), learning new skills, techniques, and creative passions. From furniture artistry, floral canvases, intuitive painting, mixed media abstract, and even water colors, I’ve been working with it all!
If you are reading this… thank you. You may be here because you already follow me on facebook or instagram. You might know how much I love to teach and I love to learn. I started out in my 20’s as a preschool teacher, and then moved on to teaching adults. I have always taught and coached adults and I must say, for me, teaching and learning is where I find the most joy.
So here’s my big New Years News! I have decided to start my own, Monthly Creative Club on facebook. I am doing this because, I know what it feels like to have that creative pull that is so strong that its almost paralyzing. I know, how hard it is to navigate my own creativity, while trying to grow a business. And also, I know that I might be just a few short steps from where you want to be. I am not a public figure with tens of thousands of followers, or 20 affiliate links. I am not here to sell other products… Nope! I am just here to grow a creative community of people who want to use and grow their creative skills.
Still reading, still interested? Awesome! This is what my Private Monthly Group, Cara’s Color Me Creative - Artists in the Making, will look like.
