So girlie's, Trudy from Artistic Creations is beginning a group with the book The Artistic Mother by Shona Cole. First I want you to know I don't own the book, YET!! LOL But I looked it over on amazon and it looks fantastic!!!! As a momma I am very aware of the challenges at times in taking the time to express my art. So I will be joining these fantastic group of momma's in a 12 week journey. I think Trudy says it well,
"I have found just the right inspiration to help me build the habit of doing something artistic each day. Shona Cole of An Artful Life, a young mother of five, ages 1 to 10, has found a way to integrate motherhood and art instead of waiting till the children are older to focus on her artistic side. She has written a practical guide for fitting creativity into your life, The Artistic Mother. In her book, Shona inspires us to continue on this wonderful journey of artistic momy-hood. She has tips for making time in your life. In her book is a 12-week art course with step-by-step instructions for more than 12 finished art pieces celebrating motherhood and family; a weekly actions plan to help you make the best use of your time; tips on creating time and space in your life for your art, and a beginner's guide to each of three much-loved arts: poetry, photography and mixed media.
I am joining with other like-minded artistic mommies to form our own Artistic Mother's group. We will be going through the course at the same time and blogging about it on our blogs. At the end of each week, probably on Saturday, we will share our progress and share the links of all who are participating so that everyone can click around and visit each of the blogs. Our launch date is Saturday, March 6th. "
So head over to Trudy's to sign up
I know I am going to have a blast! And the sharing with like minded momma's is going to be cool. Hope to see you there!
