How was your summer? Mine has been busy, and full of creative adventures! It began in June with the Champagne Art Salon that Lucie Lynch & I co-created, with the theme of “The Voice” emerging. Lucie is a sublime international singer & songwriter that I feel so fortunate to not only to call my friend, but a colleague as well. You’ve just got to check her out on Facebook or at http://www.lucieslighthouse.com. You’re going to love her & her mesmerizing voice & song writing.

So the evening began with an Open Studio Art Salon, mingling & sharing my art with the beautiful group of people that joined us. The champagne was flowing, delicious food was partaken & we all enjoyed the hypnotic views of Koko Head & the endless blue of the Pacific Ocean. What a treat it was! At 7:00pm, we gathered in our living room for an incredible living room concert with Lucie. I unveiled my latest painting, “She Activates Her Voice” & shared my story of her creation with everyone. I explained how this painting literally manifested itself by my using a method known as “Intentional Creativity,” as taught to me by artist & mentor, Shiloh Sophia McCloud. This is a process in which one sets a particular INTENTION for the painting and then intuitively ALLOWS the painting to come into form. A give & take relationship develops between the painting & the artist. Lucie then began the concert by telling us her story about activating her own voice & continued to sing & tell us many more stories through her beautiful music.

I am so grateful to everyone who attended, supported & had fun with us! I am humbly honored to have shared the stage with Lucie. I would also like to thank Leo & Marika Hura of LeoVidPro for filming the event. You can view the synopsis of the evening on their YouTube channel. And a huge shout out to my wonderful husband for helping out in whatever was needed.

Hello, dear friends! How have you been? I’ve been away for a while due to some health issues, so I REALLY appreciate your stopping back in here! I’ve missed you.

Anyhoo, I’m really excited to announce my next event, and I do hope that you can join me! It’s on the evening of 12/12/12 in Honolulu, Hawaii at Glitter Gypsy Studio. Mark it on your calendar, ok? It’s not only on the night of the “New Moon,” which symbolizes new beginnings, but numerically, it’s also really significant. The next time we have a numerical line-up like this will be in 01-01-2101! And it’s also my Birth-day! Not to mention that my Birth-Day is & has always fallen on the Feast Day of the Virgen of Guadalupe, Protectress of all of the Americas & my Patron Saint. So…if these aren’t enough reasons to celebrate & create in community, then I don’t know what is?! After a rough year for me & for so many others that I know, would you like to join me for an evening of abundant new energy? This potent combination of the New Moon’s energy, the numerical energy of 12/12/12, the Feast Day of “Our Lady,” revered by so many around the World & the energy of me beginning a brand new year in my life is sure to create a powerfully energizing night! Won’t you please join me as we vision our future together in a creative way?

What to expect:

**5:30-6:15p.m.: Drinks, food & socializing

**6:15-6:45p.m.: Circle Ritual: Introductions, Connection, Ritual

**6:45-8:45p.m.: Creating Your “Vision Board” for 2013 by visually documenting the coming year as you see & desire it to be. We will be journalling, collaging, embellishing & of course, !glittering! onto your Vision Board to cement your intentions into your psyche & then send them out into the Universe. You will leave with not only a beautiful piece of art that you’ve created, but a tangible visual reminder to refer to throughout the coming year. Setting clear intentions &  seeing visual reminders dramatically improves your success rate for living your “Dream Life” in 2013. By ‘putting it out there’ rather than just having “spinning thoughts” in your head allows it to become REAL. **NO PREVIOUS ART EXPERIENCE NECESSARY.**

**8:45-9:15p.m.: Closing Circle Ritual with community sharing

**LIVE MUSIC BY INTERNATIONAL PROFESSIONAL SINGER/SONGWRITER LUCIE LYNCH TO ACCOMPANY & ENHANCE OUR CREATIVE ENERGY**

This is my gift to all of you. I would like to share the energy of my Birth-day & the energy of 12/12/12 & the New Moon with anyone who like to do this. Practicing “Intentional Creativity” (as taught to me by my teacher & mentor, Shiloh Sophia McCloud) has completely changed my life, so I’d like to share this gift with you, as well. Would you like to re-boot, wipe the slate clean & begin anew in 2013? Then this is the event for YOU!

And it’s FREE. There’s no catch. I just want to share this evening with those of you who feel that this is something that speaks to you & that you would feel empowered by doing! And it’s going to be FUN–I promise! (If you’d like to bring some food or drink to share with the group, or leave a donation in the box to cover the cost of my supplies, that would be gratefully appreciated. But, again, there is NO expectation of anything FROM you, I just want to share my time, energy & creativity WITH you. Also, if you’d like to bring a personal item to place on the alter as an offering or prayer, you are welcome to do that, as well.)

So—If this is something that you’d like to do, please leave a comment below or email me at susan@glittergypsy.com so I can plan accordingly. Space is limited, so if you’d like to come, please let me know as soon as possible. Also, as the date approaches, begin by spending some quiet time with yourself every day or every other day, at least. Even 10 or 15 minutes is enough. Go through magazines, books & the like & just randomly tear out images, words, quotes, etc. that “speak to you.” (There doesn’t need to be any rhyme or reason to your process–just tear it out. Let your subconscious mind, rather than your conscious mind do the work for a change. I’ll also have plenty of supplies here, but by doing this in advance, you’ll have more to work with.) Also try doing some journalling or free-writing during this quiet time & allow things to just flow onto the page. Again, don’t think about it too much, just write down what comes to you. There’s no judgement here, we’re just trying to activate our “right brains,” since we spend most of our time in our “left brains” doing more logical type work. We just want to balance our right & left brains, so that creativity can inform our daily lives. It is a great way to achieve a more balanced life. Instead of always thinking, planning, doing, making lists & the like, if we can also tap into our just being-ness, dreaming, doodling, painting, etc., that balance is more accessible. We sort of have to re-train our brains, otherwise, we just end up in stress & burn-out much of the time. You can actually get MORE done by using BOTH sides of your brain & end up feeling happier & more joy-full!

OK, you ready? I can’t wait to spend time with you, my friends! It’s going to be awesome & inspiring!!!
