There is so much going on at A Pinch of Creativity and I hope you all are as excited as I am about all the news!
Firstly, I am excited to announce that I have partnered with Inspire Outreach Community. Their mission to support the mental health of youth, children and their families is something I want to be a part of. I know that I can provide so much to them not only with the use of my beautiful studio space, but what I have to offer with my talents and gifts. I look forward to collaborating with an amazing group of people to better our community, create connection and bring creativity to youth, children, families!
Our first creative fundraiser together on October 22, is creating a terrarium! Theres a choice of two workshops to choose from. It's going to be so much fun! Its a great parent/child activity so please consider it! If you would like to join us, get the information here https://www.facebook.com/events/1786217811667968/?ti=icl

Mental Health is something we need to de stigmatize and it it starts with one person! I believe creativity is a great way to embrace who we are as individuals, and the connection we make with each other while creating pretty things is one of the most beautiful things I have been witness to! It's amazing what we can share with each other when we feel safe and comfortable enough to talk about not only our blessings, but our struggles. It's one of the reasons I opened A Pinch of Creativity, I have seen first had how creativity heels us!
