Milliande Artist Date
Milliande Artist Date
Take Your SELF " Out to Art"
|What is an Artist Date ? |
~ I have been hearing a lot about people chasing their muse, feeling in a creative block , uneasy to start projects that seem out of reach and generally just looking for inspiration
~ I first noticed "Artist Dates" mentioned in Julia Camerons Book of the same name ... but a lot of people find it hard to motivate themselves to actually "DO IT " rather than just read about it, think it great and then let it wash down the stream of thoughts that enter the mind and exit just as fast
~ Taking time out for Art is often seen as a secondary priority and often ends up even further down the list of "Have to's
~ Another time there is soo much inspiration, so many possible arty avenues , so many started and never finished projects that it seems like navigating this maze turns into a struggle rather than fun
~ Making a commitment to nurture yourself can be a very liberating starting point on your personal journey to honor your creative self
~ Now Letha and I have been talking - and she mentioned that sometimes it takes a little push for people to get creative, an incentive , a challenge that helps break out of the daily rhythm of "Have to's" and embrace "ME TIME "
~ Taking the "Artist Date" idea a little further,
I would like to offer "Milliande Artist Dates " for Milliande Creativity Club Members

What is a " Milliande Artist Date " ?
Guidlines for Participation in "Milliande Artist Dates"
A"Milliande Artist Date" is a Date with Your Arty SELF once a week
( A commitment of time once a week - regardless of knowing in advance the actual time available to you , commit to once a week. These Artist Dates will be tailored in such a way that 10 minutes will be enough, and extended ideas will be offered if you find yourself with a whole hour or a half day on your hands. Know that you are worth it- every minute spent on yourself will feed your Self, nurture your Soul and make you so much more wholeheartedly soulful to others in return)
A "Milliande Artist Date" is to be Solitary
( no companions allowed - no children, no spouse, no arty friends , no partners - no one but your beautiful Self)
~ when you spend time in the solitary pursuit of art, your true self has a chance to come out to play, not having to conform to another persons expectations, or rules, ort even silly little habit ... this is time to be you with your Self
A "Milliande Artist Date" will be guided by a Theme
( I will set a theme, opening an avenue for your own creative exploration)
A "Milliande Artist Date" Incentive
( Monthly each participant of the "Milliande Artist Dates" will be entered into a Draw to receive a "Milliande Art Print" from my artfire gallery store)
~ Proof of "Artist Date Attendance" is Required if you would like to enter the DRAW
BUT - You can happily partcipate in the "Milliande Artist Dates" without having to proof your attendance, simply play along as and when you feel inclined too -- however you will not be eligible to enter the DRAW to win a Milliande Artist Date Care Package -- that is reserved for people who are able to commit to share their efforts with our creative group of women
- you will be invited to upload a photo as proof of your Artist Date Commitment to Your Self into the Gallery at the Milliande Creativity Club
~I will make the "Milliande Artist Date" Button available for members, so that you can upload to your blogs, websites etc . This is helping you to make your commitment "official" . I find that when I openly and "out loud" commit I provide myself with an incentive to stick to it .. !!!
