The Creative Goddess Manifesto

 

 

Creative Goddesses make art because it fills them up with joy and light.

Creative Goddesses believe mistakes are sacred and add to an artwork’s story and perfection.

Creative Goddesses aren’t afraid of making art that doesn’t Look Good.

Creative Goddesses don’t make art for others, they make art for themselves.

Creative Goddesses make art that is true for them.

Creative Goddesses don’t need no stinkin’ outside approval.

Creative Goddesses make art that doesn’t need to look like anyone else’s.

Creative Goddesses trust in their intuition and vision to make *their* art as it is needed in this world.

Creative Goddesses listen to their soul’s calling.

Creative Goddesses dip their fingers in paint.

Creative Goddesses know the power of soulful creativity.

Creative Goddesses remember that every person on this planet is an artist, a Creative spirit, a soul who needs love, joy, creativity, laughter and connection just as much as water and food.

Creative Goddesses do it messy. And gladly. And reverently.

Creative Goddesses share their art when it is right for them, and hold on to the medicine of their art when it is right for them.

The Creative Goddess is inside you.

She is inside each of us, everywhere, all the time.

We only need a moment to hear our own grace and magnificence.

 

it’s true,

How To Make :: No-sew no-buy bunting

Gorgeous ones!

BUNTING.

I’m in love with it.

You’re in love with it.

I’ve got caravans and rooms and trees festooned with it.

I ran out of bunting, once upon a time.

And seeing as my creative skills do not extend to the Realm Of The Sewing Machine, I decided to forge forth and make our own.

BEHOLD!

The No-Sew No-Buy Bunting!

Also: enjoy the horrifico iphotography.

My whole philosophy?

If I don’t do it this way, it won’t get done.

It goes totally against the grain of Perfectionism. I feel like crap when I’m held up by that disease.

Instead, it’s just unleashing the magic now… wild, unfolding, messy and glorious.

Let’s get started, shall we?

Here’s the supplies you need:

The no-sew part:

Stapler!

Scissors!

String or ribbon!

and here’s the no-buy part:

Instead of buying cute fabric for this (like I was going to do)…

I instead hauled out the bag of old & outgrown clothes that were waiting to be taken to the op shop… and made bunting out of Ostara’s old shirts + onesies!

 

 

 

First cut triangles out of the fabric.

It’s totally okay to leave buttons and pockets and zips in the fabric.

It just gives the bunting extra texture!

Where we create:

Who I create with:

And here’s the finished bunting, adorning the Creative Caravan!

I dig the fact they hold such happy memories and cuddles too!

Get craftin, mama!

love love LOVVVVE!!!!

5 Ridunkulously Gorgeous Reasons to dive into the Creative Goddess e-Course

Hola gorgeous goddesses!

Less than 2 weeks until the Creative Goddess e-Course begins as a group journey over on ze Goddess Circle on Sunday April 1.

So many of you have already signed up – but there might be some beautiful souls out there who are wondering WHY art + meditation is so important… and WHY we need it in our lives RIGHT NOW.

Goddess Leonie’s Uber-Gorgeous Reasons You Need Art + Meditation In Your Life Right Now

1. No Longer Will You Feel Alone

This is a happy side effect of the Creative Goddess e-course, and yet is one of the most deeply important parts of it. I’ve created an amazing online circle sanctuary for the Creative Goddesses to gather – to commune, connect, share their soul’s stories, their journey through the course, and their creations. As with every single women’s circles I’ve ever been a part of, miracles and deep love and sister-hood come hand in hand with circles. It’s the thing we all yearn for, the thing that makes our life richer and more beautiful: soulful connection with each other. I’m so excited to be leading and holding the space for the first Creative Goddess online Circle, and I know already how deeply it will touch the lives, hearts and spirits of those women involved.

2. At last: Fulfilling, Inspired Creativity Even If You Can’t Even Draw A Stick Figure

Each week, I’ll be sending out videos and instructions for a new soulful creative project. You’ll get to create in all different kinds of medium – including painting, sculpture and writing… reminding you that your creativity comes in all different forms. You’ll get to play, create, get paint on your fingers, and remember that little girl inside you who loved to make colour in the world. And you’ll be supported and encouraged along the journey the whole way.

3. You’ll Reap The Amazing Benefits of Meditation

More clarity. More peace. Less freaking out. Less worry.

These are all the benefits of meditation!

Each project will be both an act of creativity and soulfulness. As you create, you’ll be finding bliss, self-awareness and spirit-joy. Each week I’ll also be sending out an MP3 meditation to listen to which will guide you in meditation and visualisation.

4. Uninspired? Not sure where to head next? Lacking MOJO? Try the Creative Goddess Cure!

You’ll be utterly inspired by the projects. By the meditations and the videos and the projects. By the space we create together. By each other. And by yourself. And that last one – that’s the most important one.

5. Be Prepared For A Life Made Of Miracles

When women gather, miracles happen. When we spend time with our creative and soulful selves, glorious spirit unfurls and dances. When we remember our beauty, the world becomes magic again.

The e-course & circle begins Sunday April 1 and goes for six weeks. To join us, enrol before then… and let the miracles be born in your life.

Any questions? Concerns? Fears? I’m here to hear them, and help you find a new way forward through them. Email me away!

Have a scrumptious day, gorgeous goddess!

Love,

P.S. The Creative Goddess e-course is one of the most popular, powerful + transformative e-courses I offer… It’s been taken by over 3000 students + has been the power behind a huge amount of women becoming artists, creative blocks being dissolved, and old hurts being healed. I utterly stand behind the power of this e-course, and know it can make a huge amount of miracles in your life. Remember it begins Sunday April 1 – so don’t miss out! Sign up now!

How To Make Art With Kids





You do it quickly.
You do it messily.
You do it with reckless abandon.
You do it with them.
You do it in spite of them.
You do it anyway.
You do it while laughing.
You do it while crying.
You do it while feverishly swearing under your breath.
You do it because you need it.
Because they need it.
Because you’re a better person, a better mama, a better you
when you make your art.
You do it because art is as needed as anything else in this dang world.
You do it because you can.
Because you can’t not do it.
You do it because it lights you up.
It guides you home.
It helps you remember who you are
and what this is all about.
For all these reasons and more,
this is why we mamas must make our art.
