The Summer Studio Yearbook Is Available Now!

“I have never considered myself the least bit creative but exploring the yearbook has changed that big time. It is truly the best thing I have ever done for myself and it brings me more joy than I could ever have dreamt of.” Ulrika Persson

What is the Studio Yearbook? It’s a powerful fill-in-the-blank seasonal journal designed to support your creative practice and awaken your creative spirit. It offers core practices for your days, your weeks, your months and the season too. It is a private place for creative exploration, discovery and growth – and as you fill it, it becomes a reflection of the artist in you!

In your Studio Yearbook, you will tune into the energy of the season…

Learn to identify and focus on what matters to you…

 

And establish a daily creative practice that includes documenting your day, gathering gratitude and celebrating with gold stars.

And there’s so much more – setting course under the New Moon, creating dreamboards under the Full Moon, a place for creative challenge and for finding sanctuary, supportive video lessons, a live Q&A with me, an encouraging community…. the list goes on!

The Studio Yearbook is a creative adventure!

Let me give you a sneak peek into the Studio Yearbook!

Three years ago, the Studio Yearbook poured out of my heart and into the world. Since then hundreds of creatives have joined me on the journey, discovering more and more each day the magic and beauty that lies within their artistic heart.

“I’m having so much fun writing, drawing, colouring, painting, gluing (is that a word?) with my Studio Yearbook! There are also days I just write, think, write, feel, write, notice, write, fight with life, write, become aware, write etc, etc. … The Studio Yearbook is such a great way to help me see, to be mindful more often, to be ME more often and to make choices that suit me, nurture me, feed me.” Esther Jansen

Folks I’m in my 9th season now with the Studio Yearbook! Jamie says “love what you love” and I love my Studio Yearbook! It’s become an integral part of my days and it’s where I get to create, capture, celebrate and process life! I am grateful to Jamie, who is my favourite creative coach and one of my favourite human beans for sharing this with us! She is awesome, the Yearbook is awesome and a bonus…the community is awesome! Come join us!!! Sundeep Grewall

I hope you’ll join me and an encouraging community of Studio Yearbookers this summer!

Three Tips for Building Your Creative Resilience

On Tuesdays I invite you Behind the Scenes at my studio.

Today:  We all face rejection, failure, discouragement and mistakes in our creative lives. How do we bounce back and keep making and sharing, especially when we’re a highly sensitive creative? Here are my top three tips for boosting your creative resilience so you can keep on creating no matter what.

Day 40: Live Lounge Allstars Times Like These (BBC Radio 1 Stay Home Live Lounge)

Oh, what a way to wrap up this series! I must have listened to this Live Lounge Allstars version of Times Like These a hundred times since I first heard it.

Day 39: Duolingo

I love languages! Maybe it’s because I grew up listening to my mom, aunt and grandma speaking Latvian. I never understood a word but I loved the sound of them talking in their mother tongue. It always made me feel safe and at home.

Over the past while, I’ve been working on learning both French and Spanish using the free app Duolingo. Right now I have had my longest streak every – over 50 days! It only takes a bit of time but I love feeling like I could at least say, “Hello, how are you?” when connecting with another person.

These days, when so many of us have an abundance of time at home, it feels good to focus on something that is simple,  meaningful and in the service of connection.

You can find Duolingo wherever you normally get apps. What language do you want to learn?
