Consider Creating for Happiness

In December I got an email from a fellow alumna of the art intensive course I took last year, Jan Allsopp, with an invitation to join her online program called Creating for Happiness, which is designed to encourage creating in small bits every day. When I took a look at her introductory materials, I could see how closely aligned her thoughts are with those I wrote in Sober Play: Using Creativity for a More Joyful Recovery. And since I can always use more encouragement to focus on my art, I signed up for her program.

Jan sends a brief encouraging email every day to help us stay on track and there's a Facebook page for the group where people post all manner of creative efforts, some simple, some extravagant, and we cheer each other along. You don't have to be any kind of artist to do this, just somebody who'd like to spend a little time each day creating something.

Jan's program is free and you can start anytime. You can take a look at
