In the post, I talk about working through The Artist's Way by Julia Cameron. I recently came across my journal from that time period and was amazed. One of the exercises in the book asks that you write out your "perfect day". You are supposed to really dream big. In my journal, I wrote about having breakfast with husband & daughter, then going to my home studio to do crafts. I even wrote about writing a book. I remember writing the entry and laughing. Thinking how outlandish it would be for me to write a book about crafting. When I was working on The Artist's Way, I had just started exploring my creativity again. It seemed ridiculous to me that I would ever be considered a "good enough" crafter to actually write a book about it.
A mere five years later, I've just finished breakfast with my husband and daughter. I'm about to go into my home studio and get to work on some craft projects for some magazines and manufacturers. I've had requests from publishers to submit book proposals. When I reread that "perfect day" journal entry, I laughed at loud, amazed that I am living my perfect day.
