Creative Stress Busters perfect Mother’s Day Gift

Art and Journaling Techniques to Relax, Relieve Stress and Inspire Creativity

This workshop would make a perfect Mother’s Day gift just for you, Mom! 8 lessons that you can do on your own to relax, relieve stress or get in touch with your creative spirit again. Do you remember what it felt like to open a brand new box of crayons, all those sharp tips, bright colors and infinite possibilities? That is the feeling I will help you recapture in these 8 easy-to-follow lessons.

My husband just asked me what I want for Mother’s Day and honestly, I would love a day off to just play in my craft room and not have to worry about feeding anyone else, doing laundry, the grocery shopping and other typical Sunday activities that seem to fill my day. I could easily spend the day coloring, drawing, painting and writing in my journal. Oh, toss in a manicure and pedicure and it would be a perfect day.

Make the gift giving easy for your family this year. This 8-week workshop is only $29 between now and midnight Saturday, just in time for Mother’s Day! Click here for details.

This workshop is perfect for you if:

  • You a ready to eradicate stress from your life.
  • You are so done feeling depressed, overworked, tired and grumpy.
  • You are a creative spirit looking for new forms of expression.
  • You are longing for more creativity in your life.
  • You love ready-made and easy-to-follow creativity prompts.
  • You love to color, create collage, journal, doodle but aren’t making time to do any of them.
  • You are drawn to meditation but don’t know where to start.
  • You love guided visualization and art/journaling activities.

I hear comments from so many of the women that I coach or who respond to my blog posts on creativity. They feel a deep draw to creative expression and quiet time but don’t know where to begin or what to do when they can carve out the time. I have discovered that when I feel scattered, disconnected or sad, an hour of meditative creativity can lift my spirits, change my mood and help me to focus on what matters in my life.

Here are what some of the women I work with have to say about my art and journaling projects:

“I had a wonderful time and discovered much in creating a self portrait. Minette made an (another!) insightful comment that resulted in my appreciation of what I created. It was great in so many ways!” – M. Mim

“This was a fun and insightful workshop. I loved the meditation exercise which gave me an appreciation for the many stages in my life. The self-portrait was especially enjoyable in that the face I drew I realized later was coming out of water as though a rebirth. Great time.” – Laura Salerno

Could you use some stress relief right now?

If you shouted YES to that question, you need to participate in this workshop. Each week I will send you a new creative stress buster. You will have permanent access to these virtual classes and can use these ideas over and over or pick the one that works as the best stress buster for you personally.

Sample lessons:

Each lesson will include a guided visualization, easy-to follow activity and journaling prompts.

Lesson 1 – Color Mandalas for relaxation and focus

Here’s what Tara had to say about coloring Mandalas: “I started off pretty intense I think and towards the end allowed my self to soften my strokes and enjoy the process rather than just complete another task! I feel much more in the Flow…and know I have come into this artful practice at the perfect time in my life. This type of meditation, combined with art and allowing spirit to guide me is something I used to do a lot of and have really wanted to incorporate back into my life…so it feels really good”.

Lesson 2 – Color your way through your stress to relaxation and joy

Lesson 3 – Meditative doodling techniques to inspire relaxation and creative expression

This is just a taste of what you will see in each of the 8 lessons.
