My goal for September was reaching out to my artistic “tribe”. Although still a work in progress, it was such a good exercise to pursue this goal. September was an interesting month in itself for me. I felt on the brink of a new chapter of my life and was at a loss in figuring out balance. I wasn’t as creative as I would have liked in September as lost isn’t my best head space for creativity. However, I am crawling out of the lost hole and climbing back up to a more balanced space.

Start a meet up group or set up a creative mommy night. I sent out feelers in September but didn’t give enough advance notice. So I tried again with more notice and our first meeting is next week. Yay:)

Visit at least two local studios in the month. Talk to the artists. Ask them about groups they belong to and what classes they run or attend. Check. I visited the 100 Braid Street Studios in Port Moody. It is awesome. It is a warehouse split into several studios. The artists range in their focus from fabric arts, to acrylics and oils, to photography. They have open artist nights where people come together and work on their individual projects. I think I will attend one in November. I couldn’t find many other studios locally but did find a couple local artists who have Etsy shops. One example was Memory Blocks. Given my recent creative love interest in wood, it isn’t surprising that they work with the material:)
