  4. I'm so glad I found your site. Thanks for the giveaway.
    My talent is something I'm still trying to find. I think art journaling
    with just about anything.
    What activates my creativity: Looking at other people's work. I look at it
    and see what I could do to make it different and make it mine.
    I'm most receptive to inspiration at the beginning of the day.
    I'm most drawn to fire.
    Happy holidays.

  5. Good evening,
    I love to design and sew bags from vintage supplies. I am inspired by different fabrics and handles that I rescue and from my wonderful and encouraging family who believe that I can do anything. They are amazing! I am most creative in the morning. I am drawn to the ocean and love to watch a fire anytime. Hope that everyone has a New Year filled with creative energy that will help all of your projects soar.

  6. Hi April!

    Thank you for encouraging an opportunity for reflection :)

    Interpersonal communication I would say is one I have been fostering for a long time. The intricacies of human interaction never cease to amaze me. Encouraging others I would consider one of my talents as well. Artistically speaking, would be composition and conveying emotion with color.

    Personal observations activate my creative energy as well as meandering in the Universe. I like to be still and to see something beyond looking at it. Something will shift and inspiration will flow.

    Night time is magic time for me, expectations fall away, a freedom follows. Following my muse is exciting at this time. It's when she comes out to play.

    My soul pauses in the clouds, basks in the rays of the sun and drifts with the currents of the winds, free to fly wherever whimsy will take me. Air supports me.
