Hey Everyone out there!
Do you ever come across such amazingly beautiful pieces of artwork or super cute crafts that make you wish you could create something as cool as that? Confused about how you even go about it, or the even more common “I could never create something like that” or “I’m just not creative”. Well I’m calling you out, its time to stop making excuses and start exploring! I promise you it will be worth it. I know for me it was life changing in so many positive, delightful ways and I want that for you too.
My name is April Small and I am an Artist from Leicester, Massachusetts in the US and this is my journey exploring many different forms of creativity each week throughout the year 2021. The idea of doing 52 projects, 1 each and every week, had come to me a few years back and though I haven’t been successful in the past I am committed this year to diving in deep and exploring not just the different forms of art and crafting but myself as a person and who I am as an artist as well. The thing I can not stress to you all enough is how necessary it is for all of us to make time for our creative habit, we as humans are innately designed to be creative, to take ideas and bring them to life. We find deep, meaningful pleasure in the creative process and seeing them come to completion. We also gain so much insight about ourselves and the world around us when we do so.
So here’s what I am going to do, each and every week I am going to explore a new creative project of my choice and share with you my findings. I will share the complete process, this will include my research. Like, the search for the materials to complete the projects, of course at the lowest price because lets be real we don’t want to be spending an arm and a leg each and every time we decide to do a project, and what to do with them once you bring them home. Basically a step-by-step of the process from choosing the project, getting what’s needed, and completing the projects. Most importantly I will have LOTS AND LOTS OF TIPS. I want to make this as easy, fun and enjoyable as possible because I believe in you and I know if I can just show you that it is possible for you to be creative you will be able to START BELIEVING IN YOURSELF.
All that I ask in return is that you share with me your creations! Either post them in the comments or tag me on Facebook (OdonataByAS) and Instagram (OdonataArtisticServices) I am here if you have an questions or run in to any issues during the process and will get back to you as quickly as I can within my ability to do so.
Sending lots of love to you and best wishes on your magical creative journey,
Artist and friend April Small
