Creative Girl

I just received the book Creative Girl, The Ultimate Guide for Turning Talent and Creativity into a Real Career by Katharine Sise.  It was recommended by Bonnie Rose from the blog A Life Unrehearsed and she seemed so excited so I thought I'd give it a shot since being creative is what makes me happy.  I do want to make a career out of it even though I haven't had much encouragement from those closest to me.

The author Sise says it is absolutely possible to make a living out of our creative pursuits.  I can't tell you how many times my mom has told me, "You'll never make a living off of your paintings."  Thanks so much for the words of wisdom, Mom.  People do make a living off of their creativity and I plan on being one of them.

Now I'm not creating just to make a living.  No.  I'm creating because it's what my heart and soul tell me to do.  I'm creating because it makes me feel alive and joyful.  But why not try to make a living off of doing what I love.  I know I have a long way to go, but I'm hoping that this book will give me some direction. 

(P.S.  Isn't the girl on the cover just adorable?)


  1. Great post my friend! I just got my copy of this book the other day too! I love how it's written so easy to follow and read.. love that!
    OMG.. tell your mom to go to the moon.. LOL seriously? You are right, ppl DO MAKE A LIVING on their art and their creativity and why not.. why can't it be you??
    I am right there with you.. right beside you.. my prob is I hv so many ideas and not enuf money or time to do them..ever feel that way?

    Let's hold hands and help one another..
    everyone has potential.. and everyone that stretches their creative wings has so much possibility.

    oh so much.

    let's walk the journey together. I am here cheering you on fr my balcony! You can do it!

    Love you, bonnierose xo

  2. Thank you--I'd love to help each other reach for the stars, really. Since being creative isn't "practical" we need to have others around us that don't care about practical, that care about living life fully and to me that means creating! I'm here...
