Permission to Live a Creative Life

We are designed to be creative…so why is it that we feel so guilty for taking time to create? You have a to do list as long as your arm and a million other things you should be focusing on, but have you ever thought that if you stop and take time to be creative, you will end up being better at all the other things on that list? Fulfilling the creative need inside yourself will lead to a happier, healthier you… a you your family will love! This class will help you realize that creativity is an inherent need in each of us-a need that needs to be met, not overlooked, and you will find the courage to start down the path towards living a creative life today!

Courtney is a freelance writer whose books include Scrapbooking Your Faith and The Busy Scrapper and she worked as a Contributing Editor for Memory Makers Magazine for 2 1/2 years. She's been published in Creating Keepsakes, Scrapbooks Etc., Scrapbook Trends and Simple Scrapbooks and managed the Chatterbox Design Team. Most recently, she has been working on her very first fiction series, which will feature scrapbooking in a fun and memorable way. The first two books will be published by Guideposts and will be released in the fall of 2011.

Permission to Live a Creative Life isn't a "once and done" kind of class. This class is just the beginning of a new journey in your life. You will learn tools to help you spark your creativity, ways to keep the creative fire lit, but most importantly, you will walk away feeling like it's not only OK for you to create, it's necessary. You will be able to carve out time for you—and to realize that the laundry can wait. What a freeing thought! After all, it'll be there tomorrow! The mini album you create during this class will serve as a place to keep your dreams safe, to stretch your creative wings, to try something new and different and most importantly, to never be judged. Courtney will walk you through all the steps you need to create a beautiful, unique album that you can easily add to once the class is over!

Note from Courtney: I've spent many years practicing living a creative life. I've dabbled in it, dipped my toe in and finally learned that in order to be truly happy, I had to dive in head first. The most fun part of my life, though is being the wife of an incredibly creative children's pastor and mom to three-all of whom appreciate when I take creative time for myself…because a happy mommy makes everything better! I hope you'll join me in living a creative life!

Important information about Self-Paced Projects at Big Picture Classes!
Self-Paced Projects are instant download classes that allow you to participate at BPC anytime! These classes are different from our interactive workshops. There are no starting or ending dates -- you may enroll at any time. This flexibility also means, that there will not be the level of teacher and student interaction that we enjoy in our workshops. You will receive handouts to print and an audio file to listen to, but there are typically no message boards or chats.

Even though these classes offer less interaction, you are not alone! If you need help, email us at admin@bigpictureclasses.com. Enjoy!
