Through years of working closely with creators, we've discovered seven distinct reasons why we are driven to create—joy, calm, connection, energy, growth, expression, and renewal. We call these the creative intentions.
Step one of the Create Room Journey will help you identify your core creative intention, but you will likely feel driven to fulfill each of them at different times. We invite you to join us this month as we focus on creating room for expression!
Create Room For Expression
Take a moment to think. What kinds of activities help you express yourself?
For you, expression might be discovered through writing or drawing, branching out of your comfort zone, creating for others, and trying new things. Whatever it is, it is important to find how to express yourself through your creativity and take time for it in your busy schedule. How will you carve out time for more of that this month? Or, if you're drawing a blank, we invite you to spend some time this month exploring creative activities that help you find better expression.
We asked our founder, Yvonne, to share her thoughts.
“I love seeing how my friends express themselves through their creativity! A couple of weeks ago my dear, new friend gifted a gorgeous handmade baby blanket and a stuffed elephant for my new grandson! The colors and patterns she chose remind me of her. She is fun, kind, and giving, which makes it so much more meaningful. My heart warms with gratitude for the time and effort she gave.I see her love in each color and each stitch.
I hope all of us can make time to create, express ourselves, and bring a little joy to others the way so many have done for me.”
