Creative Souls

Everywhere I look-there are creative souls in bloom. Women who are courageous, daring, sharing, talented and immeasurably big-hearted. Who are finding their creative voices, evolving, taking risks , pushing through their fears and giving their talents a voice.
There is Robyn from Art Propelled who carves the most beautiful pieces of magnificence; doors, angels, women...Who puts so much thought and effort in each of her posts and delights in sharing it with all of us...
There is Lis who is raising money for orphaned girls in China through Half the Sky Foundation...Her and her little girl have been doing an art giveaway for the last month.
There is Leslie who has just started a 31 day creative challenge for us all to participate in. She has put forth so much time and effort in her activities...and she has such a huge heart that shines through in all she does.
There is Robin from Well of Creations-who hand makes the most wonderful knitting creations (purses, yoga mat bags)  and shares her shining spirit with us...
There is Kerri a wonderful singer/songwriter who has decided to do a "50 songs in 30 days" challenge (yikes!!)...She has the most wonderful voice too...sweet yet very powerful; SOUL-full.
There is  Amy who just started an artist co-operative flea market. She is trusting her instincts and talents/abilities and going forth with her dreams.How inspiring is this!!
Everywhere there are strong vibrant women who are putting their heart and soul into their dreams, work, life. I am proud to know them and share in their spirits. Everywhere I see Creative Souls in BLOOM!
Also...some exciting first blog interview! Please stop by to read it here.  It was so much fun to do! Thanks again Leslie!

Lovely post Soraya! It is a wonderful feeling to think of women all over the world, striving to find their voices and succeeding. (Thanks so much for the generous mention too). I popped over to Leslie's blog and enjoyed your interview.

What a beautiful blog! I just found you through Leslie's blog and was so impressed with what you had to say. I too agree with so much of it as I am also at home with a 4 year old and trying to get in as much art as possible. Not easy, but definitely worth it!

You have a huge talent and I am looking forward to seeing more as I am now a follower! Kristin xo
