Life Without Baby

Filling the silence in the motherhood discussion

Creativity TLC May 5, 2012

A couple of weeks ago I wrote a post about freedom and in particular, the freedom to be creative. A few of you mentioned some creative longings that maybe hadn’t seen the light of day for a while, so I wanted to pass along some information that might be of interest.

Melissa Dinwiddie is an artist creativity coach. You may remember her from the recent video interviews I did. Later this month, Melissa will be teaching “Time to Glow”, a 4-month creativity lab for women “to liberate your unique creative voice and get you from dreaming to doing.”

I’m lucky enough to count Melissa among my “creative cohorts” and in fact she was a key player in booting me from the “wouldn’t it be neat” stage to the commitment stage of the video broadcast as well as another pie-in-the-sky-turned-reality project that I’ll be talking about very soon (she says, wiggling an eyebrow conspiratorially.)

If you’d like to find out more about Melissa’s Time to Glow program, here’s the link.

This is an affiliate link, which means if you decide to sign up for the program, I’ll get a couple of thank you bucks. If that sounds fishy and you’d rather not, here’s a link directly to her site.

Now, I’m heading outside to create some garden beauty. Maybe you could check in on your creative muse today, too.

    I do paint, even more since finding out that I won’t have children- in a way, the paintings are my ‘children’- labyrinths are my passion, hence I paint them. If not for them, and writing, I would have been ‘stuck’ in creativity which also involves emotions and spirit. 🙂

    • Mmm, I love labyrinths. If you have a website for your work, please share it. I’d love to see it.

        Sure I’d be happy to share my labyrinth paintings- I’m still working on it because some labyrinth paintings had been borrowed at a substance abuse treatment plan, a center providing services for victims/survivors of domestic violence and a counseling center. I’m working on taking photos of every paintings I did, so that will take a while. There’s even a hint of a labyrinth painting on my website under the bucket list. 🙂

        There is a post on labyrinth artwork on my blog as I just published it sometime ago.
        If you want to share my post, that’s fine.

    Lisa, the links don’t work, they go back to your video interviews….

  3. Hmmm, what an interesting-looking program! For me there is a definite link between creative work and non-motherhood, but I do find it hard to put my finger on. Something to do with channelling creative energies I think, but I’m not sure….either way it doesn’t do my garden much good and you’ve inspired me to see if I can do better on that particular creative score!
