We have now been live a whole month and what a fantastic month it has been! We’ve had great support and encouragement from our friends as we launched the site, and we have been surprised at how many people who have been as excited about Creative Kingdom as we have.
Here are some of the highlights from this month:
- Featuring the work of ten different artists and writers, including professional artists, enthusiastic hobbyists and innovative College students.
- ‘It’s a Hobby, It’s OK’ article by Marquette that explains why there is no need for snobbery in creative fields.
- Being mesmerised by the New York City Timelapses by Dan Thompson
- And of course your continued support.
Note from Cathy:
Here is what I have discovered over the last two years; practicing creativity releases joy. Whether it is a skill you excel in, or a project you’re trying out for the first time, there is something inherently joyful about doing something creative.
I am happier on the days I write. Even if I don’t finish what I start or if the writing isn’t very good, I am still happier on the days I write than I am on the days when I don’t. And the more I write, the more rewarding the process becomes.
The trick is to find which creative outlets bring you joy. For some it is painting, others it’s baking, some people bloom when gardening, others thrive when launching new business ideas. Dancing, acting, crafting, speaking, designing, sculpting… whatever it is that brings you joy is worth pursuing.
That is what Creative Kingdom is about; pursuing creativity.
Thank you to all of you have been with us right at the beginning, we are thrilled to have started this journey and we know there are greater things to come!
