Say Cheese & Sparkle

Jamie Ridler launched her e-course Sparkles this week.  I’m always using time as an excuse for not showing up for my creativity, so I couldn’t resist her invitation for 31 creativity prompts (in 31 days) that you can do in 5 minutes or less.

The day registration opened my creative yearning inspired me to create a ‘quick’ journal page in celebration. I had already shut down my computer and was ready to walk out of my studio when this yearning appeared. Here is my sparkling creation.

Sparkles to celebrate Jamie Ridler's Sparkles e-course

Yesterday’s Wishcasting Wednesday prompt was in celebration of the e-course launch: How do you wish to sparkle?

Perfect, I thought, I will share my fun journal entry and my wish to sparkle just by being me.

Well, I didn’t ‘get’ to that yesterday…which seems to be the way I typically handle the wishcasting prompts. Wednesday’s are a full day of work, and then the evening was filled with…well filled. Great excuse, huh, but that is ‘me’.

I was about to leave my studio tonight when I realized I had not read my first Sparkles prompt. OK, I told myself, you have five minutes! The prompt was to sparkle and say cheese – so here I am, impromptu, being me! (Adding the time to create this post bumped my creative play up to about 25 minutes. Yeah me!)

Sparkling Me

Thanks Jamie – I’m looking forward to sparkling for the next 30 days…and beyond.

How do you wish to sparkle?

  1. i love the sparkling you~gorgeous.

  2. I love your sparkling picture. It really is fun to find at least 5 minutes a day to do something creative. And I have found that five minutes definitely leads to more time spent being creative which is my goal.

  3. Yes, indeed you ARE sparkling! Look at you…
