Rocking Horse Renovation: Before + After

by Leonie Dawson on March 29, 2012

 

Hola gorgeous hearts!

Another cute creative family project we did together… this time with hunky love included!

We found this old uggle-fuggle rocking horse out at the farm…

The paint was peeling, the colours were so-not-us, the tail looked really sad… and its painted eyes really creeped us out. Just being honest here. That’s what besties do.

We decided to transform it from peeling + uggles into a turquoise wonder…

Ostara takes one last ride on it before it becomes purdy…

And why YES! That is the paint-splotched floor of our verandah… it’s where we do all our creative projects!

When we moved in, hunky lover pointed at half the verandah and said…

And that there? That’s where you can go to town with paint with Starry and art. Don’t worry about cleaning it up. If we ever sell, we’ll just repaint that whole area. You might as well just enjoy yourself!

Why thanks hunky love! Gawd you’re hot!

SO. Anyways. We proceeded to paint the whole thing with paint left over from the Creative Caravan. It was the perfect shade of blue anyway – so why not?

And the finished product!

We embellished it with a saddle made out of zebra-printed foam.

And made the mane out of pink + magenta fluffy wool… added striped ribbon for bridle & reins.

More wool + a ribbon for the tail!

Tiny felt wings (to make it a Pegasus! YEAH!)

And embellished it with felt hooves too!

All in all: TOO CUTE!

SO MUCH BETTER!

It was definitely a family project…

I would have gotten photos of us in the process of doing it…

but it was a flurry of paint, wool, felt + toddler wrangling…

Messy and happy and glorious… as all family creative projects must be!

I feel so proud of us for doing it… from blah to gorgewa in 1.5 hours!

HURRAH!

love,
The Awesome Dawsons!

Art tools for your toolbox:

Creative Goddess E-Course

Begins APRIL 1!!!!! A six-week guided journey to discover the Creative Goddess in you! This e-course is both practical + spiritual, and will help you discover (or remember!) that you were born an artist, art can help you heal, creativity can make your spirituality bloom in new & beautiful ways, and that you really are a creative goddess. If you’re ready to remember how inspired, wise & courageous you are, this journey is for you!

 

Want to cure CREATIVE BLOCK once and for ALL?

Want to create more PROFILICALLY than you ever dreamed possible?

Do you find yourself saying “I’m not an artist! I can barely draw stick figures!”

Or are you so WOUND UP in the fear of making a mistake that you forget to actually ENJOY making your art?

Cure your creative blocks + feel giddily uplifted

in just 6 weeks!

 


 

The next Creative Goddess e-course
begins SUNDAY APRIL 1.
Enrol NOW to be a part!

 

 

“Give me 6 weeks and I’ll show you how to create art WITHOUT blocks or misery…”

The Creative Goddess e-course is a six week journey unlike any other. You will create in a way you’ve simply never experienced before. It’s all about creating because it makes your spirit fly. Creating because it shows the colours of your soul. Creating in a way that frees you, uplifts you and reminds you what an amazing Goddess you are.

Art isn’t just a place of joy and paint-on-the fingers-glee (though that too is utterly delicious).

Creativity CAN be a place of IMMENSE JOY, healing, transformation + miracles for YOU…

It CAN a pathway to discovering the Goddess in You – your wisdom, your story and your beauty.

It CAN change your life from the inside out.

You CAN be more prolific + creatively abundant than you’ve EVER DREAMED POSSIBLE.

The Creative Goddess eCourse is a journey that is powerful, sacred, connected, inspired, healing, transformative and shining. You’ll finish the e-course with a whole new rush of inspiration & energy in your life & art. You’ll discover the wise, creative, joyful Goddess in you, and remember the spirited, rainbow-paint-on-hands artist YOU ARE.

It’s totally wonderful if you don’t feel like you are The Bestest Artist Who Has Ever Lived.

(Who needs to draw stick figures anyway?)

It’s utterly perfect if you are still working out your style, your voice, how your camera and paints work and what you want to share in this world.

(Right where you are is just so beautiful.)

What’s really important is this:

If you were born, you are an artist.

If you are a woman, you are a Goddess.

And if you are both of those things, then the Creative Goddess e-course is for you.

“I will always be so thankful for your Creative Goddess course, it really did change my life – it set my creative spirit free.”
- Milena, United Kingdom
“Wow! I can’t thank you enough! I have been stuck in a creative rut for a long long time…..and that made me feel quite sad like a part of me was missing. Your meditations were wonderful and I loved the videos too it was like your best friend holding your hand and nudging you forward. I felt so much better, more alive and I believe in myself a bit more. I can do my art just for me something sacred, something meaningful and learning all the time. I have discovered that I need to honour the Goddess in me by keeping on being creative. I sooo love being called a Goddess how perfectly wonderful is that!
What an amazing gift you have given us all and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.”
- Goddess Liz

“Give me 6 weeks and I’ll show you how to create PROLIFICALLY + ABUNDANTLY…”

Here’s my own TRUE STORY of just how using the creative secrets in this course, I’ve created prolifically + abundantly… I’ve managed to make SO many of my creative dreams come true AND earn a six figure income from doing so!

I’ve written + published my first book at 22, held my first art show at 23, began leading women’s circles at 23, created my first retreat at 25, launched the Goddess Circle — a subscription-based women’s community for creatives of all kinds — at 27, and have guided thousands of women through transformational Circle experiences over the past 3 years. I’ve also released 5 e-courses — including my signature workshop for entrepreneurs, “Become A Business Goddess”, 4 meditation kits, 2 workbooks and 2 workbooks into the digital ether. I’ve created a mini goddess empire around my creations – with over 30 000 goddesses circling around my blog each month.

And just for fun, I had a baby, moved to tropical paradise with my hunky love + in my “spare time” wrote a second book that flew to the top of the Amazon best seller list (just beneath “The Secret!!!”)

My musings, art + wisdom have been featured on Problogger, Tiny Buddha, spirituality magazines like Goddess, Spellcraft, Life Images and Spheres, and in three of SARK’s best-selling books on creative fulfillment & freedom. And in the meantime, I’ve written 1500+ articles for my website, recorded hundreds of Goddess TV episodes, released dozens of free ebooks + podcasts… all in just a few hours a day.

I’m prolific, and my creative gifts have taken care of me + my family incredibly well.

ANYTHING is possible when you never – ever – have creative blocks!

And the secrets behind my prolificness are all held in the Creative Goddess e-course….

 

  • You feel creatively blocked
  • You want to deepen your experience of art from fun to sacred
  • You are a creative type {photographer, artist, writer & scrapbooker} who are looking to experience art in a whole new way and have a whole new rush of inspiration
  • You’re a frustrated wannabe creative soul & are longing to connect with that gorgeous, shining ARTIST part of yourself
  • You find yourself saying “I’m not an artist! I can barely draw stick figures!”
  • Or you find yourself so WOUND UP in the fear of making a mistake that you forget to actually ENJOY making art!
  • You don’t make art for fear of it “not looking like the way it looks in my head!”

 

Here’s what gorgeous things you can expect from the Creative Goddess ecourse…

Every week you will be assigned Creative Goddess projects to do for the week in a range of creative mediums ~ you will be exploring new ways of creating and connecting with the gorgeous soul, wisdom & beauty inside you.

You’ll also receive throughout the course:

  • 6 beautifully illustrated handmade ebooks + 3 workbooks guiding you on creating art as a sacred practice, how to find healing on your journey, walking through your stucknesses, how to create sacred space and discovering the Goddess in you.
  • 6 amazing videos taking you behind the scenes into my world to discover the secrets curing your creative blocks
  • 6 incredibly powerful 30 minute MP3 meditations that you can use over and over again. Just these 6 meditations alone are well worth the value of the course!

“I would really like to express my appreciation to you for the 6-week Creative Goddess Course. I think it is one of the most wonderful things I have allowed myself to do in many years. The course released so many things in me. Your meditations are so beautiful, and I listen to them often, usually before I go to sleep. And watching you in your videos not only helped creatively, but inspired me in the sense of a “way of being” that I had clamped down within myself for a very long time. So to you and all the beautiful creative goddess-sisters I have met in circle, thank you so much.”
- Donna, USA
“Today I did project one from week one of the Creative Goddess e-course. I just wanted to let you know that I am in love with what I created, and I feel as if I have already gotten my money’s worth! You are an amazing teacher, and filled my heart with happiness and peace the second you started talking.”
- Katrina A, USA

Why the Creative Goddess e-course is SO important for creatives!

 

Here’s what some of the goddesses have said about the Creative Goddess eCourse:

“I don’t even know if I can put words to what the experience has been for me – it was life changing! During the space of the course I saw my energy shifting and my soul shining. It unlocked a deep sacred knowledge that I found most profound. I was reminded of how much I love to paint. I reconnected with the true me! You are Wise Woman. Healer. Guide. Sacred Teacher. All of this and more. Thank you for allowing me to participate in this experience.
- Sonya F, Australia
“This course has been a battery/soul/spirit recharge. It’s been rejuvenating, loving, relaxing, and enriching. An opportunity to let go of the negatives (pain, self doubt, and criticism etc). It’s been many things but above all it has cleared my head and reconnected me again with nature, with energy and with inner peace”
- Patricia M, Australia

“Goddess Leonie’s Creative Goddess e-course have given me the time and space to really FEEL creative inspiration. It has been such a gift to have some dedicated time to fill my creative well. I especially appreciate Goddess Leonie’s warm, magical, supportive and playful energy as she guides us on amazing Goddess journeys!”

- Silky Hart, USA

“A beautiful sisterhood and support network as well as a wonderful teacher for your journey to bring out your creative Goddess inside. This course has enabled me to truly “come out” to the wonderful goddess that I really am and to heal destructive images of myself. There are now days that I can actually say ‘I LOVE ME!”

- Goddess Kel

1. How will the course be run?

Every week I will send out by email all the course materials for the week. You’ll be able to listen to the MP3 meditations, read the ebooks, watch the videos and do the Creative Goddess projects at whatever time is delicious for you.

2. What creative medium will we be creating in?

The Creative Goddess eCourse will include projects in a range of creative mediums, including collage, painting, journalling, drawing, scrapbooking and sculpture. You can also elect to do some extra creating including dance and photography. Basically – it’s about getting you to unleash your Creative Goddess in all kinds of creative ways, and trying out new mediums you might not have tried before. If you’ve got any special requests for mediums, just ask, and I’ll see if I can include. And please don’t worry about requiring lots of equipment or materials for this course – you can adapt the mediums to work for you. This course is less about creating one specific thing in one specific way, and more about discovery, sacred exploring, soulful creating and going where your Creative Goddess energy is calling you!

3. Is there an minimum age limit for Goddesses to enrol?

No there’s not. I’ve had 13 year old goddesses already take the Creative Goddess ecourse. In the workshops I run live I regularly have little Goddesses involved. Children & teens are already gifted at creativity, living in the moment, being present & being open hearted, so they are such a beautiful part of courses!

4. I’m not an artist. I can’t even draw a stick person. What would I get out of this?

So so much, darlin! This is about creating in a way you’ve never experienced before. Creating because it makes your spirit fly. Creating because it shows the colours of your soul. Creating in a way that frees you, uplifts you and reminds you what an amazing Goddess you are. If you were born, you are an artist. If you are a woman, you are a Goddess. I’d so love for you to join this amazing, creative and inspiring time and see what blooms in your life.

5. I’m already a painter/dancer/writer. Would I get anything out of this?

I truly, truly think so. This e-course is intended to deepen your experience of both your art & life. We will be creating in all kinds of creative mediums as a chance for you to explore new ways of expressing your wild creative goddess self. And most importantly, we will be creating as a sacred practice, making art a space to hear your soul’s story and connect with the divine in you. You’ll finish the e-course with a whole new rush of inspiration & energy in your life & art. I’m really excited about what miracles will unfold during the e-course!

The Creative Goddess Manifesto

by Leonie Dawson on March 27, 2012

 

 

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,

 

Feeling creatively blocked?

Join us on Sunday April 1st…

Don’t enjoy art because of your fear of making mistakes?

Don’t call yourself an artist because you can’t even draw stick figures?

Or simply want to experience your creativity with more joy and soul than you’ve ever dreamed possible?

The Creative Goddess e-course is the cure you’re looking for.

Give me six weeks and I’ll show you how to easily cure creative blocks + become the Creative Goddess you’ve always dreamed of.

And it begins in JUST A FEW DAYS! Sunday! Enrol now!
