My new creative habit: Thanks to Amy at Spirit Out!, I have added a new creative habit to my toolbox. Once a week (when I can), I like to have a mini-retreat. I head down to the coffee shop with a notebook and pen (or sometimes a totebag full of notebooks and pens..and colored pencils), to do a little brainstorming. Today's theme: my upcoming 20th anniversary. Woot woot! But in addition to the usual fevered scribbling of ideas, I added a new layer: I put the pen down, closed my eyes, and gave myself a few minutes to consider how I'm feeling about it. (Really proud of myself for one, really grateful to my customers for another.)
I'm excited about all the ways I could celebrate: 20 giveaways for 20 days? one great big party? I would love to hear your suggestions!
