Dear Creatifuls,

I’m super excited to announce we will have a ღ Creative GIRL ღ playshop for girls ages 9 to 14 during the last week of track out, Monday October 5th through Wednesday October 7th from 10 am to 2 pm in Northeast Raleigh. We’ll gather to play with clay, experiment with bookmaking, make jewelry, paint AND generate a fun and thoughtful kindness campaign. For more information and to register visit this linky.

Suggested registration is $125 per girl. There is also a creative pay-what-you-can scholarship option that will not alienate girls due to financial constraints.

Creative GIRL was created in 2013 to provide a safe and unique experience for girls to gather outside of family and school to share and listen, to honor creativity, self and otherly kindness, expression and empowerment. Creative GIRL playshops hold talking circles and explore multiple expressive art forms like journaling and painting, and promote kindness in action. www.creativegirl.net or email Becky at creativegirlnet@gmail.com.

It would be my great blessing to celebrate your daughter at our next program.

mighty creative adventure time

Mighty Creative Adventure 2015Dear Creatiful YOU,

I’m very excited about this special week coming. (Bzzzzzzz….Hummingbirds in my tummy.) Our first ever, Mighty Creative Adventure will bring mothers and daughters together–new friends from far and wide–to share a new experience, co-create memories for four days and three nights at our enchanted forest in the North Carolina mountains. We will learn new things, make a few things, share old stories, enjoy some s’mores over our campfires, while activating the great beauty, power and creativity within us. How does this sound?

We still have space for you and your mother (daughters ages 8 to 14 and mothers of all ages) to gather together to learn from each other, share, shine and LAUGH together as we adventure in a secret sanctuary located in the heart of the Pisgah National Forest, North Carolina–one of the oldest woodlands in America.

Can you come? Can you join us? Can you join the Mighty Creative Adventure?

It is not too late to say “Us too!” Much more info can be found at http://www.mightycreativeadventure.com or feel free to email me. We have one partial scholarship remaining, and a lodge room or shelter space for you. Oh, and yes, if you are flying we have a shuttle service to safely transport you from Asheville (AVL) airport to our secret gathering place.

What do you think? How does this sound? Can you join us? Me, my daughters, my dear friend and partner in creativity Wendy Cook, and the other moms and girls this Thursday? Let me know. We’d love to welcome you to the Mighty Creative Adventure.

with much love,

a mighty creative secret

invite against stone wall white(1)Dear Creative Girls,

There is something so special and wonderful about sharing a secret with a friend; a secret that revolves around love, joy and surprises, planned for people unawares! Do you know that feeling? You know… like planning a surprise party for someone you love, and they have NO idea all the details you’ve been planning and thinking and dancing to life for their DELIGHT. Well, I’ve had such a secret with a dear friend of mine, and the surpriseEEEE may be YOU.

And then there is the moment when the secret begins to reveal. Ahhhhhhhhhh! Well, we are now ready to tell you a little bit about. The creatiful nutshell of it all is that my beautiful friend–artist and activist Wendy Cook of Mighty Girl Art–and I are co-creating a retreat experience for YOU and your mother. (If you are a Mama of a Creative GIRL then it’s for YOU and your daughter.)

Many more details shall be revealed, but for now I will share that art, creativity, laughter and ancient trees are involved. Just you WAIT!!! I can’t tell you where just yet, but offer you the date… July 9th to 12th, 2015.

Oh, and our secret’s name? Mighty Creative Adventure…. but of course because that is what you get when you combine Mighty Girl with Creative Girl: MIGHTY CREATIVE! Be sure to join our email list if you want to know when registration opens. (Opt in over there … box on the right.) And visit and like the Creative GIRL facebook page.

I’m so blessed and grateful and excited to collaborate and co-create with Wendy: a woman whom I adore and feel so inspired by. We have countless joys and passions in common, most especially our commitment to the essence of YOU! I know you are going to ❤ Wendy, too.

How are you feeling? All goosebumpy and excited? Can you feel the magic coming?  Oooooh, if you knew what I know, you wouldn’t be able to sleep tonight for the butterfly joy of it all 🙂  Mmmmmmmm … more secret sharing coming soon 🙂

ever creatifully yours,

fall creative girl invitation

fall 2014 cg register

Dear Creative GIRL,

Fall is nearly here. I can tell by the color the is sun casting upon the trees…. that mellow golden orangey yellow, different than the bright yellowy yellow of summer… the fluffy whiteness of the clouds … and that exquisite blue …. ooooooooooh!!!!! Fall is my FAVE 🙂

I’ve been daydreaming about our next CG playshop and have a few fall-fabulous fun ideas in the works.

If you played last Fall, you’ll remember we had tents outdoors and got to spend time together beneath the blue sky and white fluffy clouds. Yes, weather permitting, we will do this again!

Our FALL playshop will honor the beautiful expressive art form of POETRY. We will celebrate a few great poets, and apply our hearts and minds to the creative task of writing our own. We will make beaded dreamcatchers and a teeny special journal especially for thoughts and ideas you want to keep close to your heart. (We’ll make a few other creations too, but I like to have a few surprises.) ❤

Registration is now OPEN.

WHAT: FALL Creative GIRL Playshop for girls ages 10 to 14ish. 12 8 spaces at this time.

WHEN: September 29-30th 2014 10 am to 4 pm daily

WHERE: NE Raleigh off Louisburg Road and Mitchell Mill Road–not far from Wake Forest and Rolesville. (Location shared privately.)

GIFTING: $100* per girl includes all supplies except a few things each girl will be asked to find in nature before coming.

*If your family cannot afford this, please contact me for information about the pay-what-you-can CG scholarship program. Donations are appreciated and accepted via paypal linky on the righthand side of this page.

Register here and hit submit and full registration form will be sent to your email address, including payment details. (This is not automated.)

special invitations for WOMEN

Dear Creatiful!

There are LOTS of things bubbling in my heart as I’m planning the next few playshops for our creative girls AND for creative WOMEN too!

For now, I have two invitations I’d like to extend, especially for women.

A few times a year I am honored to offer playshops at A Place for Women to Gather. The next program is called “Lighting Her Moon” and is especially for mothers, grandmothers, aunts and other women who have a young girl in their lives. I created this program because it was something I wanted to experience myself, for my own daughters. This playshop will offer an opportunity for learning and sharing that I feel is very important for the health of our daughters, and for honoring our own female sacredness.

Here is the description from the brochure:

Lighting HER Moon
This program shares ideas and traditions celebrating our daughters first menstruation and monthly moon time. It intends to spark ideas about how we can best honor our own girls’ transition into this special time in a girl’s life in our modern lives. We will explore different rituals and practices around the world honoring girls’ first menarche and her ongoing lunar cycles. The last portion of our time together we will create a hand-molded candle, reflecting the Navajo practice of molding, molding into the candle your intentions for strength, wisdom and courage for a young girl in your life.
Dates/Times: Wednesday, September 3, 6:30–9 p.m. OR Saturday, September 6, 1–3:30 p.m.
Suggested donation: $35 (includes materials)

Please email me directly becky AT creativegirl DOT net to register.

Sacred Kindness Retreat
Many women have asked me to create creative GIRL playshops specifically for women … and the secret is out … I’m excited to share with you that I DO! Registration just opened for the fall Sacred Kindness Retreat. This special 4 day, 3 night mountain pilgrimage is offered twice a year for 13 women. The next one will be October 9th to the 12th. To see full information, please visit http://www.selfkindnessretreat.com . At this time there are 9 openings.

Oooh, and I’m excited to tell you that I’ll be announcing the Fall Creative GIRL date later this week.

(AND I have some other exciting things to share next month.)

It is such a joy and blessing to be able to create these beautiful programs that honor our daughters AND the GIRL inside of us. Thank you for seeing the beauty and importance of this –what I know in my heart to be– sacred work.

creatifully yours,
becky sig 2014
