We started the evening by enjoying appetizers, I challenged the girls to make something new, this was very fun. Hands down, the best dish of the evening was a Rustic Onion Tart, so very delicious. I will be making it next week. We even had an impromptu dessert or toasted tortillas sprinkled in cinnamon and sugar filled with chocolate.
I took some writing exercises from The Artist Way and had the girls fill them out.
List things that keep you from being creative.
List things that inspire you.
List new things you'd like to try.
List things you'd like to change.
and some others....
Then I shared a bit about creativity, life, and inspiration. We talked about some of the items from our lists and of course, there were so many great topics that came up. We talked so long that we didn't get to do any of the other activities that I had planned.
I planned to do three different sessions... a free writing session, a collage session, and a session of drawing/creating whatever you felt like creating. I guess, that will happen next time.
Anyways, I had a wonderful time and I love how open and honest we were able to be. I know that I left encouraged to keep seeking inspiration as a way of life and I've heard from the other girls good reports, as well.
We are already talking about another event, needless to say I'm very excited.
