In my efforts to heal & be healed, one of the profound methods for healing has been creative art therapy. Channelling our pain into creative outlets can help them to be diffused effectively. I have noticed this change take place within me & look forward to sharing my creations with you, whether they be physical or digital.
I have always had a desire to be creative. I lots of different ways. I remember making drawings & paintings as a child & bringing them door to door in my apartment building to sell them for a quarter. Or the time that I wanted to do a dance to the song "What a Feeling" from Flashdance... I was in kindergarten & was not taking dance lessons & I'm pretty sure I just made it up as I went along. I thank my teacher to this day for allowing me to dance for her & my fellow students, although I'm sure it was super painful to watch.
Over the years I have had many business ventures to funnel my creativity into. ("So Cute" Cards & Signs, Sew Cute by Kellie, Vinyl Designs by Kellie, to name a few) However they've all focused on a specific branch of creativity, whereas I tend to create in a whole smattering of different ways. I wanted to have something that would encompass all of the creative things I have done, as well as all future endeavors.
In my church we have 13 brief descriptors highlighting the essence of our faith. Kind of like religious creeds. The 13th one states, in part, "If there is anything virtuous, lovely or of good report or praiseworthy, we seek after these things". I want to be able to create all things that would fall into that category. "Creativity stemming from a worthwhile source".
