When I started “In the Creative Spirit”, my goal was to let my peeps read a monthly post on my journey of opening my heart more.
One post a month doesn’t seem like much of a goal in the blogging world, yet as a ” hands on” decorative artist, my “office” time is limited- and when I’m home, I want to be totally present for my sweet man.
Lately my business has been more demanding of my time, and the last few posts have been stretched over 2 months….and now that I am newly appointed as an executive board member of the International Decorative Artist League, (http://www.decorativeartisans.org) I have committed to also write a monthly article on Artisphere- our online magazine.
So needless to say, my time to write about my heartfelt, spiritual journey has to be put on the back burner for now.
This is not easy for me- yet as I grow older, I find that I can be less hard on myself for self invoked disappointments — and learning from my 3 legged cat’s lessons on adaptation (blog post from Oct 2011)- I have come up with a way to be ok with this.
You see, I’ve always gotten more satisfaction from utilizing my talents in a way of giving back. And because I’ve always been interested in the choice of charities to support that each individual makes, my Artisphere articles “In the Heart of Faux” will feature various decorative artists and their contribution to nonprofits—a bit on the local charity, why they chose it- (there seems to always be a story behind it) and photos of the art work they did.
And although I’m sad that my blog will be on a hiatus, I realize that “The Heart of Faux” is also about the journey of opening your heart- so I can post those articles here as well for others to enjoy and be touched by.
Do you have a project you’ve done or are doing for a local charity that you’d like to have featured in Artisphere Online? Think about it- it won’t only promote your art, but also bring exposure to the nonprofit!
