I’m a Creative Late Bloomer – Really Me? Yup and YOU TOO!

0 Flares Filament.io 0 Flares ×

Several weeks ago this lovely lady, Teresa Cash-Czech asked to interview me for her blog that celebrates the creative in all of us, but particularly in women who have  the courage to step into their dreams later in life.  I was honored to be asked and the interview is posted on her blog today.  You can read it here.  There are many stories of women who have overcome GREAT obstacles to follow their path and live their lives to the fullest.  I am humbled to be in their company.  Please scroll through and read some, I believe you will find them most inspiring and courage producing.  I found this blog because my virtual friend Denni was interviewed, she is another brave woman who creates what she wants because it’s part of her fiber and being.  Like almost everyone I know in this blog world, like all of YOU.  And it would be so unusual for me to have NO PHOTOS, so I will include a little something from yesterday on the 8 foot long snake like scroll book for the 40 Day Creativity Experiement.

  2. You are “sparkly” for sure, Corrine. I read the interview and you really resonated with me. I feel the same way. Now in my early 50’s and still working full-time, I struggle with my balance of life & work. Sometimes, I wish I started my mixed media life many years ago, but we can’t look back now. See you soon.

    • Hi Judy-
      I’d love to share your story of being a creative Late bloomer! If Corrine’s story resonated with you must imagine how many lives you may touch with your story. Please let me know if you’d like more details.

      Keep Blooming!

  4. Me too – late bloomer I mean. I’ve been creative my whole life but only in the last couple of years have I felt like I moved beyond crafting to arting. People like you give me the encouragement and inspiration to keep at it….. I’m off to read the interviews – thanks!

  8. Thank You, Corrine for your great comments about the creative Late bloomer blog. You have truly described the meaning behind the blog. It was an honor to share your story.! I am always looking for ways to encourage the late bloomers to keep blooming AND to inspire anyone sitting on the sidelines to get into the game and let their creative spirit out to play. I’m certain thru Sparkly Day Studios you’ve seen many transformations!
    Keep Blooming!
