For the first Tea Time Thursday post of 2013, I am sharing the new book from one of my favorite artists and friends: Marisa Anne from Creative Thursday. When I started my business back in 2009, I found Marisa while surfing Decor 8. For about a month, I researched different blogs and artists. Marisa’s writing was warm, inviting and kept me coming back each week so I could find out more about her work and her path to creativity.
I have followed her work since and if you have been following me for a long time you know I am a collector of her artwork and she was one of the inaugural instructors and key note speaker at Create Explore Discover two years ago. I consider her an artistic mentor and definitely a dear sweet friend.
Her book, Creative Thursday: Everyday Inspiration to Grow Your Creative Practice is both a chronicle of her own creative journey and a look at her creative process. In it she shares about how to begin your own creativity journey by setting an intention and how to follow through once you do. There are great tips on how to find inspiration, daily creating, becoming accountable for your work and your creative time, how to still find time for yourself within your creativity and how to move forward with your creativity if you are ready to share it with the world.
There are lots of tips, tricks, questions and encouragement throughout the book and Marisa’s style of writing will make you feel right at home, giving you a new friend for guidance and kindness along the way.
If there is one creative book to pick up this year, to set you on the path to daily creating, this is the one.
Special congratulations to Marisa for continually creating such fabulous inspiration.
Have a great day everyone.
