Imagine that each flower in your garden is a potential project…unique yet a part of the flower bed. As the garden is tended, one area weeded, another area becomes the more pressing need.
These past several days, my computer became my garden in need of weeding and tending. In order to more effectively create my blog post, the new website & course materials, organization was called for, that and back up systems too !
As with large garden beds, the email account, hiding under some shade, needed clearing out as well. I discovered that I had been unaware in a pin pointed way of seeing just how many emails the marketing machine generates. It is unbelievable.
Now I know why I have so many, I just ignore them; thinking, oh, I’ll get back here, but I don’t and then three or four years pass leaving 20000 ( yes ) in my email account. I have my favorite saves and favorite blogs. I love a library, from hardbound books, to kindle to even emails. Saturday was spent reminiscing over a variety of emails. I have a romantic soul….oh no…to delete or archive…but you need space….etc etc.
Do some of you remember when we had pen pals ? Long before home computers, we had mail. My delight with mail was collecting foreign stamps and pen pals from far away places… over the summer vacation, friends who had gone off to Europe would send postcards…or even call ! Oh my , so exciting to get an overseas call, so romantic !
Well, the weekend experience led me to thinking about this 31 Day Blog challenge…it is a lot of mail. Although I am not leaving the challenge , I am relaxing the delivery….the idea of the challenge is to get attention, that attention is to have you read my blog and then in the current of the times…eventually I would invite you to a class or one of my Zoom calls. some free offerings some paid events.
I have spent the last few months re-inventing my lifestyle. Now that I work and live at home full time. I signed up with a Kajabi site and just had the best support call ever in creating the landing pages and getting them onto Facebook and in other places.
I belong to a terrific Art Community that has several handles….Cosmic Cowgirls ~ as created my Shiloh Sophia McCloud. I have belonged for a…hmmm ( everything now is a really long time ) In any case, the pace of time and art has moved along. We have a wonderful community called The Red Thread Cafe ( Classroom ) we meet up on Facebook to share our art and stories as we engage with Intentional Creativity.
( read about the Legend of the Red Thread here )
We also have a Red Thread Tribe , I will be leading the circle on July 23rd more details to come, and if you sign up for my newsletter you will get an announcement direct to your inbox.
Hence my work on my website and pages to get all these announcements together so that we can create and play in all areas of the garden of creativity !
More to follow in the days to come ~ I wish you ease as you begin your week, good health and to some , blessed recovery. Step by step, that is how we will build our new future.
