Changes for 2009

Filed under: catalyst

 

I’ve been hinting at this a while but we have a few changes here in creative therapy for 2009.

 

First of all, it is with great sadness that we say good-bye to some amazing artists who’ve been on our team. Amelie, Karan, Leena, and Vivian have decided to pursue other ventures for 2009. It has been a great honor and pleasure having them on our team and we wish them the very very best.

 

Secondly, we’re thrilled to have quite a few new team members. Some of which have already shared their art and some who haven’t yet. Joining us for 2009 are: Amy Cowen, Dedra Long, Katie Watson, Kimmi Achord, Larissa Albernaz, Opal Cocke and Wendela Lam. These are some amazing artists and I am unbelievably honored to be in their company.

 

And finally a small word on RAKs. I’ve decided to let go of having weekly sponsors for creative therapy for 2009. This part of the site is a lot of work for me and since I have a baby coming next year, I knew something had to go. As it turned out, several of our sponsors from this year would like to continue sponsoring us regularly for 2009 so we will have plenty of goodies to give away but some weeks we might have something and other weeks, nothing. The goal of creative therapy was never to win goodies. It was for you to feel better so I hope you’ll continue to join us weekly.

 

We already have an amazing list of guest artists who’ve agreed to join us in 2009 and we’re thrilled and can’t wait to get started.

 

We wish you a wonderful New Year and as always thank you for sharing your art with us. It’s a privilege and honor.

 

See you in 2009!

 



A New Year, A New Approach
December 31, 2008, 4:08 pm
Filed under: catalyst

 

I don’t generally share personal stories here, but I thought this might apply to some of you who’ve been doing the weekly catalysts so I wanted to share how I plan to do my catalysts in 2009.

 

2009 Promises to be a busy year for me. I have long list of important deliverables at work in the first three months of the year. And then our little baby is due on the fourth month of the year which, I am sure, will make the next few months a blur. Not to mention a possible move. Knowing all this, I don’t want to make too many commitments for myself for next year because I hate letting myself down and I don’t want to set myself up to fail.

 

But creative therapy isn’t something I am willing to give. So I needed something creative for 2009.

 

1. I loved doing the December Daily album this year. The restrictions of the precut pages was liberating and gave me more creativity. But I knew there’s no way I could do it all year round and I’ve been searching for a way to continue the magic.

 

2. I wanted to use up some of my paper stash that’s been building. I have a lot of “old” paper I love and I don’t want to keep buying and never use these.

 

3. Like 2008, I wanted to make sure I do each week’s creative therapy prompt. The other artists do them on a schedule but I’ve done every single one so far and I really wanted to find a way to continue that in 2009. I love the therapeutic aspect of CT but the pregnancy took away all my mojo and between that and the baby, I was worried there was no way I was going to get to them all. I needed a simpler solution.

 

So this week, I decided to combine all three. I made a 7×8 minibook that is prefilled with a lot of the “old” papers I love. Cut and placed in random order. This is my 2009 Creative Therapy book. Each page will be one catalyst. I’ll do the catalyst on one side and print out the date, topic, and my thoughts that go on the site to adhere on the other side. This restricts me to a 7×8 page and pre-chosen paper.

 

I know it’s working because I’ve already completed four catalysts today! This might mean my pages aren’t as varied next year but I am ok with that and I reserve the right to change my mind. So far so good.

 

 

So if you like doing the catalysts as much as I do, but don’t want to overcommit, feel free to join me in this new approach!

I, again, apologize profusely for the continuous delay in picking recipients. I rewrote the names on the computer this week since I was in the holiday season. The little boy picked your names Alberta and Scrupulousscrapper Congratulations!! Thanks, once again, to our generous sponsors: Coordinates Collections and Lisa Leonard. I will email you with directions on how to receive your RAK.

 

As always, I wanted to take a moment to thank everyone for your ongoing support, generosity of spirit, and for sharing your own journeys with us. It is so inspiring and therapeutic to me.

 

Thank you.



Catalyst Forty-Two

As always, thank you to all of our visitors and all the encouraging comments you left for us. For those of you who did, thank you for playing along with us. We will do a drawing for the RAK and announce the name towards the beginning of the week. (Apologies for the slight delay in last week’s recipient; it’s coming soon.) And if you didn’t join us before, we hope you do this time.

 

Ok! Here’s the very last catalyst of 2008, catalyst number forty-two:

 

What was the best moment of your life (so far)?

 

We’re so thrilled to have Judy Wise as this week’s Guest Artist.

 

I can’t even remember where I first saw Judy’s art but I do remember feeling a deep connection to it as soon as I saw it. Her art is so soulful and emotional and spoke to me immediately.

 

Judy is so multi-talented that I don’t even know where to begin. She sculpts, paints, art journals, takes photographs, and can do each equally stunningly. It’s no wonder Judy teaches all over the country (the world actually!).

 

If you haven’t seen her amazing art, you must visit her blog and her site. I am confident you’ll be thrilled you did.

 

 

 

 

Here is Judy’s art with this week’s catalyst. You can click on it to see a larger version.

 

 

Judy Says:

I have to say it is the present moment. To have been fortunate in living this long, getting to realize most of my dreams, having a wonderful family. I take nothing for granted at this juncture; every day is a precious gift for which I give thanks.

 

Technique Highlight:

I’m obsessed with hands right now, how expressive they are and about sign language and body language that communicate silently. I also love subtle expressions in the eyes and I like this image because I think I’ve caught both forms of communication here.

 

I drew it in pencil, collaged some textured paper around the face and then painted it quickly in acrylic. Last I added encaustic medium. It came together quite rapidly.

 

 

Thank you so much Judy; we’re so very honored.

 

 


Here are some interpretations of the catalyst from members of our team.

 

Dedra:

Dedra Says:

At the age of 34 I have experienced 2 major moments that have touched my heart like no other….these moments in a way
completed me, made me feel “whole”….Jon: marrying you and having you as a best friend and a partner in our journey brings tears to my eyes….I could not have done this with anyone else…. Girls: being blessed to bring you both into our lives….beautiful, healthy and happy…. I’m amazed everyday….12.2008….

 

 


Karen:

Karen Says:

I have a strong belief that any particular moment couldn’t be possible without all the ones that came before it. So to pick on moment without acknowledging the others wouldn’t be fair since, without them, I could have never had that particular moment.

 

I’ve had many magnificent moments in my life: coming to the US, graduating from college, getting my green card, marrying my husband, giving birth to my son, being pregnant with my second. There are too many to count. But at this moment, I am happiest I’ve ever been. I feel content, peaceful, optimistic and thankful. I know it wouldn’t have been possible without all the moments that came before this so I am thankful for every moment that led to this one and for this very moment.

 

 


Fran:

Fran Says::

Life is made up of so many moments, both good and bad. And, honestly, as I thought about this catalyst, I searched for a long time. I picked up my crochet hook and some yarn and I thought to myself, how can I choose one moment that is better than the others? There are milestones in my life that I could point to, but there are also the every day things that are important and wonderful. And yes, there are even bad things that, at the moment, appear bad, but they lead to the good and loving moments. So, instead of choosing one, I chose to represent life’s moments, intertwined together in this crochet scarf I made. Each moment in life is represented by a stitch. Each stitch is connected to the others. All of the good in life is connected by individual moments – moments of love, happiness, support, togetherness, joy, creativity… There is so much to treasure!

 

 


Karan:

 

Karan Says:

My best day so far…

 

I have many great memories, but if I had to narrow it down to my best one so far, it would be the day I met my husband for the first time. I had been chatting on line with him for 8 months. He had moved to Chicago from Barcelona, and was attending a trade show in Las Vegas. I flew down to meet him, with a lot of hope in my heart that he would turn out to be the man I had dreamed of.

 

I had arrived to a dozen red roses waiting for me at the concierge desk at check in. I remember talking to him on the phone as he was on his way to my hotel. I mentioned to him that I was nervous. He said he wasn’t, than admitted he was too. I was so shaky that I had to hang up to compose myself before he came up to the room. When he knocked on the door, for a moment I was paralyzed with fear, as a million thoughts ran through my head… Was I doing the right thing, what if he was a wierdo, what if we didn’t like each other or weren’t attracted to one another… All of these thoughts came crashing in at the last moment as I stood with my hand on the doorknob…. Taking a deep breath, I pushed all the negative thoughts away, and let my entire being fill with love. I opened the door and saw someone I didn’t know standing there.

 

The photo I had seen of him was from 4 years before. He looked very different. In the photo he was more tan, and thinner, with more hair. He was holding a child in the picture and had the most beautiful smile on his face… the look of love in his eyes for this child he was holding told me he was a very loving man. This man standing before me looked so different. Bigger, not so tan, his face hesitant and apprehensive, but with the same beautiful look of love in his eyes. I invited him in, and said hello and reached out to hug him. When he put his arms around me and said “Hi baby” in my ear, I heard that bautiful voice I had been speaking to for 8 months, and all of the pieces came together. As we stood there together, him trembling with nerves in my arms, I felt the love in my heart grow ten times bigger in that moment… my soul knew him on such a deep level, I felt like I was home for the first time. That place I had been looking for, that elusive part of myself I had searched for in others, was here, in this man all along.

 

Fairy tales talk about the angels singing and the sun shining brighter when you meet your true love. For me, it was the rythm of our heartbeats, the totally overwhelming feeling of love and grattitude I felt in his arms that I was finally where I belonged.

 

Over the past four years, we have endured many hardships.. loss of jobs, homes, careers, financial ups and downs in this uncertain economy. But through it all, he has been there beside me… supporting me and our family. Doing his very best to be the man he said he was from the beginning. Each day I love him more deeply. Sometimes this scares me, because with the deep love comes the risk of great pain. But I wouldn’t trade one minute of my time with him for anything else in this world, even if it is difficult sometimes. I hold my memories of this day in a secret pocket of my heart, and I take it out and cherish it when times get tough between us.

 

That is what loving someone is all about… Taking the risk to be vulnerable. Sharing who you are with the other person so completely, that you don’t know where one ends and the other begins… Staying through the hard times so you can truly enjoy the good times once they come around. It is the cycle of life, it all comes back around… It is these things, the knowing that helps me stay grounded, and to continue on in the face of adversity. Knowing he is with me, beside me, and we are working together toward a common goal of a happy and fulfilled future. Life may not always be the party we envision, but at least we can dance through it together.

 

 


Severine:

 

Severine Says:

The best moment for me is when my daughter was born and when i saw that it was a girl. We didn’t want to know the sex of the baby before the delivery and even if i said it was not important for me, I was very very happy that it was a girl. I will have this picture in my memory for ever.

 

In French:

Le plus beau moment pour moi a été à la naissance de Zoé quand on m’a dit c’est une fille !!! On n’avait pas voulu connaître le sexe du bébé avant l’accouchement et j’avoue que même si cela m’était égal, j’étais très très heureuse que ce soit une fille. J’ai encore l’image en tête quand la sage femme l’a posé sur mon ventre. Un pur moment de bonheur.

 

 


 

Now it’s your turn: show us your therapeutic art around “What was the best moment of your life (so far)?” I urge you to give it a try. Embrace the healing power of art. It can be any form of art as long as it speaks to you.

 

Leave us comments with your work and we will send a RAK to a random participant. You’ll have to link your art by Sunday night, January 4th, midnight PST to qualify for this week’s RAK. If you don’t have a community or blog where you upload photos, you can upload them on our flickr group.

 

To qualify for our weekly RAK drawing, all you have to do is do art around ANY of our catalysts. It doesn’t have to be the one from this week. We believe in the healing power of art and we want you to pick whichever catalyst inspires you the most.

 

For our RAK for this week, I am thrilled to have a beautiful kit sponsor Scrapbooking from the Inside Out. Scrapbooking from the Inside Out is a kit club, inspiration source and online community all about scrapbooking your emotional life – using color, design, and journaling to create pages and projects that explore your inner world. They offer monthly kits geared around an emotion, and a unique Inspiration page each month with journaling prompts, quotes, a music playlist, links, photos and Design Team layouts and projects based on the monthly theme.

 

 

 

Remember, this is not a competition. If your art makes you feel even a bit better at the end, you’ve won.

 

Expect an end-of-the-year wrap up from us in the next few days and until next week, enjoy each and every moment.

We will do a drawing for the RAK and announce the name towards the end of the week. (Apologies for the slight delay in last week’s recipient; it’s coming soon.)

Ok! Here’s catalyst number forty-one:

 

What’s the best advice anyone ever gave you?

 

We’re so delighted to have Danielle Quarmby as this week’s Guest Artist.

 

DQ was originally recommended to me by Vivian and I loved her art the first time I looked at it.

 

DQ’s art has a magical quality that had a special effect on me: it made me happy. Her pieces always put a smile on my face. I love the colors, the fact that she hand-writes, and the way she mixes elements I’d never think to put together. She’s so talented and she’s a previous sponsor for us. She’s always been so kind and generous and we’re very happy to have her here. She’s also a regular contributor to an Australian scrapbooking magazine, Scrapbook Creations.

 

Check out one of her unique kits. And you can see so much more of DQ beautiful art on her blog.

 

 

 

 

Here is DQ’s art with this week’s catalyst. You can click on it to see a larger version.

 

 

DQ Says:

When I first read the prompt, I thought about it for quite awhile before I could decide what to do. I can’t recall any particular advice I’ve received from other people, so I was really stuck. Then I realised that the only advice that I really hold close is scripture – after I decided to use a bible verse, the only problem I had was deciding which one to highlight! I don’t often scrap or journal about my spirituality, so it felt good to dedicate a piece of art to just a few of the words that mean so much to me.

 

Journaling Reads:

‘Happy are those conscious of their spiritual need’ – Matthew 5:3. The only meaningful advice I can remember having an impact is from the Bible – then it’s hard to decide on just one.

 

Technique Highlight:

I based this piece on the cardboard cover of a sketchbook. It was already white, and I used a Luminarte radiant dauber to cover the base in lime green. Other colour was added with water-soluble crayons, a favourite new addition to my art supplies inspired by my friend Vivian Bonder! The vintage lamp was cut out from a photo taken at my favourite cafe, and a mix of letter stickers and handwriting created the text.

 

 

Thank you so much DQ; we’re so very honored.

 

 


Here are some interpretations of the catalyst from members of our team. As you’ll see, we have a new team member this week: Opal. I will make a big announcement with all of our team members once we post the last catalyst for this year but since her art is first I wanted to welcome her now. Click on the photos to see the bigger versions.

 

Opal:

Opal Says:

“Measure Twice – Cut Once” Words of advice from my mom.

 

As it is coming up to the one year since I lost my mom, I find that I hear her voice in my head at the times when she would have gladly given me advice on this or that. She, my mom, was generous with her advice and had many ‘mom-isms’ – most of them I heard and remember from an early age. When thinking about this catalyst, two of her ‘mom-isms’ came to mind. I choose the second one: Measure twice, cut once. I can hear her voice saying this as if she were standing right here next to me – that little bit of a knowing look on her face. She was a quilter, a knitter, a crocheter, a seamstress, a goddess of any hand craft or household task. She could do anything with her hands. She knew well the importance of those words. She was frugal and practical. It wouldn’t do to have something cut wrong, to waste, to waste time, and on and on. The impact of this advice spilled over into other areas: when cooking – measure twice; when knitting – count twice; when leaving the house – check twice; when waiting for the bus to town – count (the coins) twice, just to be sure. I hear her voice always, ” Check twice, just to be sure.”

 

I miss my mom so much, and found as I worked on this piece, her words have become such a part of me. I really do measure twice, and count, and check more than once just to be sure. And as simple as the concept is, it does apply to everything I do.

 

The piece itself is constructed as a quilt. It is sandwiched with a layer of batting. It measures 8-1/2″ x 10″. Free form quilting holds the layers together. I used a block from a quilt I made recently, removed one of the segments, and cut three new segments. One of them was measured twice and fits; the other two do not fit. The quilted swirl on the block is the echo of my mom’s voice, and the little bird at the bottom is her spirit, holding a thread of me in her beak, a thread that will always connect us.

 

And the first piece of advice that I always hear her say, with a serious tone in her voice, although I can hardly repeat it without smiling, was this: “Opal Jean…always wear clean underwear when you leave the house…you never know when you will be in an accident.”

 

Mama, I hope you are listening.

 

 


Karen:

Karen Says:

This might sound funny but the best piece of advice I ever got was from husband. Before I met him, if the phone rang, I had to get it immediately. It didn’t feel like a choice, more like something I was required to do. He taught me that just because it’s ringing, I don’t have to get it right now. It sounds silly, but it’s actually a statement about priorities and owning my own life. Deciding when to do what and not letting others dictate it for me, not even a telephone. It might sound silly but, for me, it was profound.

 

 


Fran:

Fran Says::

When I was in 12th Grade, my Psychology teacher, “Mr. T” gave me the best advice I have ever received. We were doing a unit on relationships and marriage and we had to pretend we were married to another member of the class. We were discussing the unit after we finished. We all learned that it is difficult it is to be married with all the challenges of growing up and changing as you grow. And, when we finished giving our findings after the experiment, Mr. T said, “You all know each other from going to school together for a few years. There’s a history there. You have friendships. I want you to remember this. When you get married, marry your best friend.

 

And, I have. I married my best friend.

 

 


Lori:

 

Lori Says:

The best advice I’ve ever received was from my bridesmaid, Barbara. The night before my wedding she presented me with a card full of advice. She told me to be present for my wedding. She didn’t mean be there physically, she meant be there mentally. She suggested I let every detail go and to let the day be what it will, to stand in front of the mirror and really see myself, to stop and enjoy the presence of my family and friends. It sounds like obvious advice, but it was something I was grateful for when things went crazy at my wedding. I remembered that I’m the only who cares or even knows that the coordinator forgot something and that I was there, at my own wedding, celebrating a major day in my life. I remember every detail like it was yesterday because of that advice. My day did not fly by in a big blur because of that advice. I know who was there and who was not because of that advice. Being present at my wedding was the best advice I’ve ever received and I am eternally grateful for it.

 

Technique Highlight::

I love Lisa Guerin’s, art. She decorated a dress in Stampington and Co. magazine and it inspired my wedding dress here.

 

 


Severine:

 

Anita Says:

“Take life in best way” and always see glass half full and not half empty. Living is so easy with that attitude.

 

In French:

Le meilleur conseil que l’on m’est donné est de prendre la vie du bon côté, et d’essayer de toujours voir le verre à moitié plein et non à moitié vide. Effectivement, comme ça la vie est beaucoup plu facile.

 

 


Vivian:

 

Vivian Says:

Throughout the years different people have offered all sorts of advice to me. Some very helpful indeed, however some not needed and some only wise in hindsight. One of the best advice a friend gave me some time ago, he said: “simply change your perception”. This has literally changed a lot of my life.

 

 


 

Now it’s your turn: show us your therapeutic art around “What’s the best advice anyone ever gave you?” I urge you to give it a try. Embrace the healing power of art. It can be any form of art as long as it speaks to you.

 

Leave us comments with your work and we will send a RAK to a random participant. You’ll have to link your art by Sunday night, December 28th, midnight PST to qualify for this week’s RAK. If you don’t have a community or blog where you upload photos, you can upload them on our flickr group.

 

To qualify for our weekly RAK drawing, all you have to do is do art around ANY of our catalysts. It doesn’t have to be the one from this week. We believe in the healing power of art and we want you to pick whichever catalyst inspires you the most.

 

For our RAK for this week, I am so so excited to give a beautiful piece of jewelry from our sponsor Lisa Leonard. I absolutely adore her jewelry and wear one of her beautiful necklaces every day.

 

 

 

Remember, this is not a competition. If your art makes you feel even a bit better at the end, you’ve won.

 

Until next week, enjoy each and every moment.

As always, thank you to all of our visitors and all the encouraging comments you left for us. For those of you who did, thank you for playing along with us. We will do a drawing for the RAK and announce the name towards the end of the week. (Apologies for the slight delay in last week’s recipient; it’s coming soon.)

Ok! Here’s catalyst number forty:

 

What’s a principle you firmly believe?

 

We’re so honored to have Teesha Moore as this week’s Guest Artist.

 

A few months ago, I asked our team who their dream guests would be. I told them not to worry about whether it was realistic or not, just make the biggest wish they could think of. Several of the people asked for Teesha Moore. I tried to use my own advice and emailed her despite thinking she would be way way too busy to ever agree. So when she did, I cannot tell you the amount of joy and honor I felt. Teesha, thank you so much.

 

I can go on and on about Teesha’s amazing talents but first I want to mention all the ways in which she’s brought together art lovers. She started ArtFest which is one of the most highly regarded and cherished artist getaway/worskshop events. She also runs a beautiful magazine called Art & Life and owns an awesome stamping company: Zettiology. Can you now get a sense of how busy she might be? To top it off, she creates stunning art journal pages. She is truly inspiring.

 

You can see so much more of Teesha’s beautiful art on her site and read more about her on blog. You can also buy her amazing artwork on her etsy shop.

 

 

 

 

Here is Teesha’s art with this week’s catalyst. You can click on it to see a larger version.

 

 

Teesha Says:

When I was thinking about principles, I found this quote that pretty much sums up my most important principles, so I decided to base a journal page on it.

 

Technique Highlight:

I like to put a base of watercolor on the background before I ever begin. Then I randomly place collage down. After I’ve made a border of collage, then I get out my pens and crayons and doodle up a storm. supplies include: caran d’ache neocolor II’s, daniel smith watercolors, faber castel pitt extra fine pen, gel pens in neon colors, sharpie poster paint pens, rubber stamps. etc.

 

 

Thank you so much Teesha; we’re so very delighted.

 

 


Here are some interpretations of the catalyst from members of our team. Click on the photos to see the bigger versions.

 

Anita:

Journaling Reads:

When I seen this catalyst, I had to jump on it! I knew I wanted to make something centered around Family. Family is our #1 priority around our home. No matter what, family comes first. I chose to do a wall hanging for my project. I am planning to hang this for EVERYONE to see.

 

 


Karen:

Karen Says:

This is the quote that resonates the most with my principles. People are quick to complain about the world we live in; they are quick to judge. Yet they are not nearly as quick to jump in and help make change. I believe we’re all part of the problem and we all need to be part of the solution. Change begins with you. Be the change you want to see in the world. If we all did that, imagine how amazing things would be.

 

 


Fran:

Fran Says::

I firmly believe in the principle of believing in yourself. This includes, for me, trusting your intuition and following your heart. This has gotten me through many difficult times.

 

 


Lori:

 

Lori Says:

I believe in love. I think it’s a word that is taken for granted these days. It’s not just about loving your family, it’s about loving yourself first, then your family, your friends and those you encounter everywhere. It’s about not being judgmental and about being accepting. Love is a powerful thing and it starts with oneself.

 

 


Severine:

 

Anita Says:

I’m firmly believe in LOVE !!! it’s the one thing I believe in and for the moment i’m not disapointed in it.

 

In French:

Une des choses à laquelle je crois vraiment c’est l’amour, et pour l’instant je n’ai pas été déçue d’y croire.

 

Technique Highlight:

Background made with gesso and paint.The tasks are alcool ink, and just some stickers for the title.

 

 


Vivian:

 

Vivian Says:

No extra words needed this week.

 

 


 

Now it’s your turn: show us your therapeutic art around “What’s a principle you firmly believe?” I urge you to give it a try. Embrace the healing power of art. It can be any form of art as long as it speaks to you.

 

Leave us comments with your work and we will send a RAK to a random participant. You’ll have to link your art by Sunday night, December 21st, midnight PST to qualify for this week’s RAK. If you don’t have a community or blog where you upload photos, you can upload them on our flickr group.
