#the100dayProject

So, I just found out about this project that’s apparently been going on for years and it’s basically hijacked my world right now. I’m not even sure where to start… It’s delightfully simple and based on a premise I can totally get behind (because it’s pretty much the same idea behind my 5MinuteCreator ebook). It’s an Instagram hashtag that heroically tries to motivate people into doing something creative every day for 100 days. Special shout out to Elle and Lindsay and www.the100dayproject.org.

Okay, so I was feeling really in a slump, emotionally and creatively. Yes, this even happens to Creativity Coaches. It’s something everyone struggles with from time to time, but the difference for me now is Continue reading

I Am Shaylee Seakin: Speaking My Truth

ShayleeSMI am pleased to introduce to you…

Shaylee

Shaylee is curious. Shaylee wants to understand how the world works. Shaylee is afraid of just one thing: being alone. Shaylee is not a mermaid.

Shaylee is a Seakin!

This is her “truth story” just as she sees it.

Coming soon!

Want to help me spread the word about this new mindful children’s activity book to others? Join my “A Team” of Earth Angels. I need your help to spread this message about what it means to “speak your truth” to the children out there who need to hear it most.

A painting can transform in the blink of an eye. I am capable of destroying what you see here that quickly. A few broad brush strokes and weeks of labor will be erased within seconds.

This creation of mine was painted in 2008 for the Las Vegas ArtExpo. It’s called “Moraine,” and it is large, 36″x48.” It is sitting here in my house and I am debating if I should paint over it or not. I’m kind of not feeling into this energy for inside my home anymore, but at the same time, I feel it is representative of some of my struggles in life. A moraine is what’s left after a glacier recedes. It’s a sloping pile of boulders that have been slowly grinding together for eons under the ice and snow. As I sat on the actual moraine ten years ago (the one that this painting was inspired by), I could hear the water running beneath it. An invisible river continuing to slowly transform the landscape.
