Issue 79- September 25, 2020


Hello Friends-

"Welcome back to this week's episode of, "The Cre8tive Life"- your weekly newsletter full of lifestyle tips, smiles, and musings.

I don't necessarily have a lot to "share" in this portion this week... If you've been a subscriber/reader for a while, you may have heard me talk about being a bit of an HSP and an empath. There are varying degrees of this; but, in short, for those who are not familiar, here's a little read on it. All that to say, I am in one of my silent /introverted moods and limiting a lot of extra "stimulation" of things that feel draining to me energetically...

Anyway, sending you love, hugs, and good vibes.


Random stories, pictures, video highlights, and other life musings can be found on my personal instagram page (@e101) and official brand page (@thecre8tiveartisan) throughout the week (when/if I end up posting anything).

*And, if you have missed any previous newsletters, feel free to check out the archive section on my website: HERE.

Continued prayers that you and your loved ones stay safe and healthy 

(mentally & physically) out there 💗.


My weekly (random) compilation of some of my favorite "cre8tive" things that I want to share:

  • FAVORITE WORD: Perspicacious (adj): of acute mental vision or discernment; having keen mental perception and understanding 


  • ADVICE: “If the plan doesn't work, change the plan. But, never change the goal." - Anonymous



  • QUARANTINE RECOMMENDATION: I recently saw the documentary, "The Social Dilemma", on Netflix. I found it to be quite illuminating on the ways in which social media has evolved over time, and the impact it has had on the world. I highly recommend it as a watch.


  • THE MORE YOU KNOW: In tribute to the legendary, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, I'm sharing information on the wonderful movie, "On The Basis Of Sex." I was blessed to attend the official premiere of this film, and was totally blown away by her life story. She indelibly left a mark on the world, and will be sorely missed.




May we all eat well.


This week's challenge is to take to heart the above, and see how you can best implement that into your life.


Hope you will join me for a complimentary session of

Cre8tive Art Therapy next Thursday, October 1st!

I will be facilitating a virtual small group session for people who need to

take a little break from the "madness of the world,"

and explore their cre8tive side. 

*Event will be capped at 10 people



*As a reminder, "Virtualizations!" are my highly curated, virtual event offerings. If you (or, a friend) have an upcoming birthday (or other virtual celebration need), I would love to be considered as your virtual event planner consultant! Together we can craft a unique and engaging virtual experience that all your attendees will be touched by! Please feel free to reach out to me HERE for more details! I look forward to working with you!

Lastly, if you happen to have any future topic ideas, or come across any events I should know about, PLEASE feel free to send those along my way. I always LOVE discovering and learning about new things! 

Have a great day, and be sure to take time to enjoy your life!
