As I observe that my level of enthusiasm for things/people/activities waxes and wanes, I notice several things. I'm guessing some of you have the same or similar experience.
Stuff to: Make books, Work in journals, Paint canvases, Transfer images, Apply stencils, Distress metal, Do ANYTHING to metal, to be fair - burn, pound, drill, fuse, solder, stamp, texture, Tape (just a few couple dozen 100 rolls of decorative tape), Zentangle, Encaustic, Sew, Knit, Glue, resin, seal, cold connect, Draw, pastel, crayon, ink, color pencil, Print, Photograph/Photoshop
It's celebrating the publication of "The Declaration of You" by North Light Craft Books this summer, with readers getting all the permission they've craved to step passionately into their lives, discover how they and their gifts are unique and uncover what they are meant to do!
Time to start a conversation (and on June 7th, we'll be having one over on Facebook). More on that later.
In the meantime, think about it:
- How does your enthusiasm fuel you?
- What's held you back from discovering your enthusiasm?
- What things are you enthusiastic about, but feel are "silly" or "wrong" for an adult to be excited by?
- What's your personal declaration around enthusiasm?
One thing I am sure of.....I am very enthused about seeing this book by the incomparable Michelle Ward and the oh, so delightful Jessica Swift. Thank goodness. Something I can KNOW I am enthusiastic about and which will not fade.
'Bout time, I say.
