Chapter 3 in the Artist Way Project by Paula

Hello everyone ! This sunday was a check in with the Artist Way project .

Well my morning pages I've been doing in the form of my Jamie Ridler courses and my Cynthia Morris courses as well . Its alot of writting and both refer to the Artist Way book as well . I will be honest , I haven't bought the book yet , but have been following on this project know what the chapters are about from the others who are
doing this project . Anyways , I have been doing my morning pages which are my courses with Jamie Ridler . In one of her courses called Soul reflections , we do a quick collage every morning about how were feeling and how we would like to feel.So this has been my morning pages . Its really interesting because your not suppose to think too hard about what pictures you rip out of a magazine. What ever catches your eye just glue it down , then write your thoughts on what your collage means to you . I have really been getting alot out of that course , its kept me on my path to my goals and my dreams . So I consider my Soul reflections journal also my morning pages . I have been doing them daily , and feel good about things . I feel more confident than ever since doing this course and The Artist Way project .
Artist date , I definitely had an artist date yesterday , I worked on my latest video project and then I went to a friends birthday party where there was a bunch of musicians and we all sang and jammed together so I think that was a pretty good art date don't ya think ?
Synchronicity , I always remind myself to always stay connected with all that keeps me connected to everything around me . Lots of coincidences when you stay in touch with synchronicity and thats listening to the Universe give you the answers.
I meditate to get connected , it keeps me focused .
I hope everyone who is doing this project is finding themselves in a way where it just keeps you grounded and keeps you working toward your goals and dreams . Its so important to never forget what your dreams mean to you . All these courses and projects Im doing , has helped me immensly . I will get the Artist Way book hopefully sooner than later .
Thank you all for stopping by , it means alot : )



  1. That Soul Reflections practice sounds really focusing in the "energy flows where attention goes" way. Glad to read you are getting so much out of it.
    You asked me about Sparkles. I post every Monday about how I made (or tweaked) each prompt. I don´t mention what the actual prompt is as per Jamie´s request. The first two weeks are here: http://keepitsimplemakeitgreat.blogspot.com/2011/08/sparkling-week.html and here: http://keepitsimplemakeitgreat.blogspot.com/2011/08/another-sparkling-week-2.html
    About The artist´s way book. I have a summary of the tasks that I found on line. I can e-mail them to you if you are interested to know whatthey are about. Just drop me a line to: allnetstuff@gmail.com
    Your artist´s date was great! What a joyful event. :)

  2. Wow! So great that you're chugging along with the project even without the book. Keep it up!

  3. Thanks ladies , thanks to Paula , for the email you sent me on the info . ; P
