This year I'm holding nothing back in a series called 'Balancing Act,' a behind the scenes insight into balancing commitments and creativity.
Each Month I’ll share two posts; the first being a monthly insight into the studio alongside a thought, concept or strategy to help you make more time for your art. Because the way I see it, we all have too many ‘have to’s and not enough ‘must do’s.’
Have to’s are all the things that we have to do to keep life and business ticking along. Must Do’s on the other hand are things that’s on your heart, that don’t need done right now, but are super important for ‘Right, what do I want next.’
Sometimes, by the time we get through all our have to’s, there’s not much time left for the all important must do. So this year I’m sharing how I’l bring mine, a Solo Show in October called, you’ve guessed it ‘Balancing Act’ to life whilst offering accountability, support and advice to support the things on your heart.
Part One Balancing Act: (+ Month Review)
On the first Monday of the month this post will give an insight into what’s been created in the studio. I’ll share how the month has been set up, where time is spent and what I’m doing to balance life, business and that intrinsic need for creativity with ideas you can implement into your routine.
Part Two Balancing Act: (+Theme)
Will launch on the third Monday of the month with a tactic, strategy or thought about how we can both carve out more time for the Must do on the heart.
