Day 220: Making a Guide to Your Creative Dreams, Part 2

by thecraftaholic


“However many holy words you read, however many you speak, what good will they do you if you do not act on upon them? ”

-The Buddha

So, here’s the thing. We must learn that actions indeed speak louder than words. Who really cares what you think or how you believe, if you do not act upon it? It’s like art; to be an artist, you must actually become one. Actions. That is what the world around you sees. That is what you see.

The act of love is what makes it so. It’s the same for all things. You can’t just expect people to come to you, for opportunity and prosperity to come to you, you must go out and chase after it. You must reach for it.

Today, I finished the album I was making. The rest of the steps are really simple. I decorated the pages based on what I thought went next in my little guide to my own creative dreams.

A good tip is to have a mental list. I put envelopes in the pages, for journaling about my creative dreams.

Remember the earrings I made? Well, I lost one. So here’s the other one.

This key. I love it. My mother in law says that whenever you see keys on the floor, lost, you should always pick them up and put them somewhere sacred. I think it’s so that you can have open doors in your life.

This key is easy to make. Just add glue, and your left over glitter, and top it with crafty chica glaze. Cool, right?

The Empress. She is a creator, be it creation of life, of romance, of art or business. She gives the ideas form, and makes them happen. Cool right?

Anyway, that’s my book!

In your book, add the pictures and things that represent, not just what you want, but what you need to get what you want. In the envelopes, add poems or a list of things that you think you need, or should focus on. This book helps you put your dreams into action, in a fun interactive way.

I have to go. I have a meeting with a friend tonite, and then I have to prep for this:

This Saturday. Holy Crap. I completely forgot, can you believe it? I am shitting bricks, trying to get everything together. I hope you can make it out to New Jersey so you can support me, your local artist and crafter.
