Im campaigning...

I found this on Donna Downeys blog and I absolutely love it!

...almost everyday i get an email from someone who has either just realized their creative potential or someone struggling to hear their inner creative voice.
i 100% believe that inspiration and possibility are everywhere...
inspiration can be found in everything we do, share and see.the possibility is our part in manifesting it into tangible art.all we need to do is open our hearts and eyes and listen to our creative voice.
we all have a voice.
sometimes it speaks to us in a department store,
or while reading a catalog,
or while walking in nature.
it is the voice that stops you and makes you look a things in a different way.
like the placemats you pass while shopping at Target that inspires your next layout design,
or the new bedding set you see in a pottery barn catalog that inspires the color pallet for your next collage painting
or the nature walk that prompts you to pick up fallen branches and twigs that inspire your next home decor project.
embracing our creative potential and letting it free to guide our art is the challenge.
believing in the power of your passion to create is the gift we all have to share.
"believe in your creative potential, enjoy the creative process, try something new, explore new possibilities, but most of all believe."
this is just such an amzing message, something I can believe in and I just love that she is campaigning for art while
EVERYBODY is campaigning
who really knows?
