It's time for the Being Creative Group to share their marvellous work again! This month's theme was 'Home'. I have been loving the work that has appeared in our Flickr Group, there has been some very inspiring and different styles emerging, and I'm delighted that you have taken the time to join in, and to share your creativity with us all. I'd also like to take the time to welcome the newer members of the group - it's great to have you join us!
So...I have a confession to make.
I did not take part this month. You may have noticed that my little blog has been rather quiet of late, and the reason for this is that I've had a break from pretty much everything. I wrote a few weeks back how I was studying some creative business courses, planning new work, writing my creativity e-book, along with keeping my family fed, watered and happy...and well, you all know how it goes. There's only so much we can do, and I knew that I'd taken a bit too much on. I had some great ideas for this month's theme, but I just didn't have the energy to carry them out. I have spent the past week or so just gently moving through each day. Business courses and the like have been shelved and the urgency to complete them removed - I was sleeping 10 hours a night and still feeling as if I'd not been to bed upon waking...it was time to assess this crazy overwhelm for real and to do that I had to step back from everything I'd tied myself up with.
So that's the reason why I haven't taken part - maybe I'll come back to the theme again - I'm not sure. However, one of the rules of this project is that it's flexible - you take part, or you don't - I guess as the host of it I feel some kind of responsibility to lead the troops and have something to show each month, which will help to spur others on, and to encourage new people to join in.
I'm sorry if I've let anyone down, but I do hope that you understand (I'm sure you do, you're a lovely bunch!).
So, here we go - the theme for May was Home as you know.For those of you who would like to share your work via your blog/Flickr or other photo hosting webpage, then you are very welcome to add your link to the widget below (please just link to the page your work features on). Don't forget to use the whole caboodle of http://www...etc or else the link won't work.
Anyone who has already posted in the Flickr Group are also encouraged to share your images in the gallery here too! It's going to be wonderful to have a monthly source to access everyone's work ~ and please don't be shy about sharing...encouragement and support is the key to growing in confidence with your creativity, and although it can feel a little scary, I think you will feel a huge sense of achievement when you share your work and get feedback from the other participants or blog readers here.
You will be able to add your 'HOME' themed work to the gallery here until the end of June. There is a list in the sidebar so that the gallery pages are easier for you to find.
For those of you who are working on the project and don't have the facility to share pictures of your work, then you are welcome to add your thoughts about your creative journey so far in the comments section at the bottom of this post.
I'm looking forward to hearing your thoughts on taking part in the Being Creative Project, so please do share or feel free to email me privately.
The theme for June is OCEAN
You can post your work freely in the Flickr group as and when you like, don't forget to make use of the Discussion facility if you have any questions, or require some support.
I'm looking forward to seeing what you've done - thank you so much for sharing the vibrant, colourful energy of your glorious creations!
