What songs do you have?
If you listen to this song, don’t waste your time just hearing it with your ears. Drop into your heart. Feel alive.
This one. It’s hot.
I just found this band tonight. One of their songs is on the soundtrack to, “Hi, My Name is Doris,” with Sally Field. Awesome movie, about getting out of your own world and taking a leap of faith. Never know where you’ll land.
One for the road here… feel. Feel. Feel. Then move your hands. Move your body. Let what comes, come. Let it come out of you.
Using a concept from a fantasy book, here is another technique for constructing a face.
I don’t like cover songs usually, unless they just feel really good. This is the case for Macy Gray’s remake of Sail by Awolnation.
Music always sets the mood for whatever you’re doing, or can change your mood if you feel like shit or want to create something with a specific feel. This song by Gray was on someone’s video tutorial, and I love it! Upbeat and feelin’ good.
I’ve never really listened to Macy Gray all that much, but I like to get inspiration from everywhere…
What craft or art project are you working on? Get in the mood,tell me what you’re working on.
It’s spring time! This is a project I intend to do.
But I really like the directions on this website, so I’ll probably combine these two ideas and make my own.

If you make one, you should share a picture with me in the comments below.
Whenever you’re up against something that scares you, just know you have what it takes. Sometimes life just pushes us in ways that feel cruel and wrong, but trust it. Trust yourself. Let it strengthen you. Get your personal power from it.
Sometimes you just gotta be drop-kicked out of the nest.
Robert Downey, Jr.
When you find the courage to take off the mask, you get a little more of your personal power back. Creativity helps you find that freedom.
The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are.
You trade in your reality for a role.
You give up your ability to feel, and in exchange,
put on a mask.
– Jim Morrison
Creativity, whether music, writing, acting, arting, building, dancing, etc,… they draw you inward to see the truth about life. Many artists, as they get older, start to see that we can be both authentic and unified… creativity helps you solve all kinds of problems in life. A short minute long tribute. R.I.P.
Creativity is good for you because it opens you up to possibility, teaches you discipline, helps you figure out your style, gives you immense awesome feelings of happiness and a sense of accomplishment, and it also contributes to your authenticity and confidence. The list goes on and on…. if you want to get more tips on doodling and get started, watch this video and like The Doodle Institute’s page. I’m not an affiliate btw. I just really like art! Oh, and watching the free video she offers, it seems geared more towards kids, but I’ve learned some of my best shit from stuff geared towards kids. So, enjoy it and fuck what anybody else thinks.
