Welcome! I am excited to be starting this new venture in my quest to live the creative life. Throughout the past six months I have learned so much about myself as well as others that have chosen to accept this path. I say “accept” because if you are a creative type you may choose to fight it, to try to fit into someone else’s vision of what life should look like and how it should be lived. I did for too many years… no more. The funny thing is, O.K. maybe not really funny but, this is easier! Who knew? Not I.

Three things that I thought about today:

1. It truly takes more time to procrastinate than it does to create. VWAALA, a blog is born, a website created, and an etsy store is filled Oh, and did I mention how easy it is to become a twittering tweeter? @imaristol

2. Yes it is O.K. to let go of a project even if someone else may see it as unfinished. It does not mean that you have not learned all that you needed to from it. Thanks to

3. Sometimes it is great to just “give it away.”

This blog is a work in progress. I would luv to hear from you. Think of it as your place to share ideas, start discussions and support other creative types.
