Wishcast Wednesday


It is time once again to cast out our wishes. Today Jamie Ridler (of Jamie Ridler Studios) asks us:

What leap do you wish take?

This week began Creativity Boot Camp and one of the first exercises was to define "artist" and to journal about what keeps us from calling ourselves an artists. I skirted around this and wrote about what an artist is, but did not - could not call myself -a true artist. I could call myself a creative soul.


SOOO - I wish to take the huge, giant leap and call myself an artist.


YES! I AM AN ARTIST!

Now I have to act like that and be that!

As Jamie says:
"You can be a maker of magic and a tender of wishes. It’s easy. Answer the wish prompt above on your blog . Support wishes by visiting other participants. It’s that simple. There is great power in wishing together."
