Hello there, you Creative Girl!
The past few weeks have been an amazing rush of organizing, sharing, promoting, facebooking, dreaming and CREATING as my vision for Creative GIRL is coming to life. Ummm, not to mention the crazy bizzies of my Sonshine starting preschool, and my girls end-of-year tests, concerts, Girl Scouts, and finishing 5 and 6th grades!) whew. It’s all goin’ on!
The first ever Creative GIRL playshop for girls is 10 days away and I’m getting things crossed off my to-do-listypoo …
❤ The paint is here!
❤ 216 pieces of fabric have been cut, folded and ironed for super-cute headbands we are making (yes dear Mum, I actually ironed, here’s proof)
❤ The rocks are in (think monster and kindness rocks)
❤ The aluminum wire and a bazillion satin and chiffon ribbons have been cut–Shhhh, surprise for Moms!
❤ The cardboard and muslin has been cut (ready for glue and gesso for the girls to make their own handmade teeny canvases)
❤❤❤ AND 3 amazing Creative WOMEN have sponsored girls who may not otherwise be able to join in the creativity celebration. We offer scholarships to help families and ensure no Creative GIRLS will be turned away.
❤ I’ve set up Creative GIRL on facebook and began conversations to create a collage containing quotes and sentiments to share with the girls in a co-created collage. AND requested suggestions for songs girls ages 10-13 should hear. (You are invited to add your suggestions in comments below or visit and add on the fb page.)
❤ I’ve begun receiving art and creations to show to the girls made by amazing Creative WOMEN. Do YOU have anything you’ve made that you’d like to share/loan me?
❤ I’ve been bowled over by the response: the support and encouragement I’ve received from my friends and family. It’s my JOY and honor to be creating this program for some amazing young girls.
❤ And now you are reading my first official blogpost on Creative GIRL.
If you’d like to register a Creative GIRL in your life (rising 5, 6, 7th grader) it’s not too late. I still have a few spots in the June 12-14 playshop, and the July 10-13 playshops. (If these dates don’t work, please email me your girl’s next school break as I’m organizing future playshops directed by interest.) Ohh, and if you are a grown-up girl, I will be announcing our Kindness Retreat dates and info soon, so sign up top left to receive my invitation. This is for any woman in the world! (ooooohhhhh, and if you are a Creative BOY or MAN reading this thanks for everything you do to support the creativity of girls and women in your life.)
Thank you for your love, support and faith in me and my Creative GIRL dream. Off to bed I go to dream of ironing boards and paintbrushes…
One thought on “my field of dreams”
Hooray for the big creative girl who’s setting a wonderful example for girls to reach out and grab their dream by the horns! “Sail on silver girl, your dream has just begun…”
