The Artistic Mother, by Shona Cole

I'm devouring this book.
As a busy mom of two small children, I can use all the tips I can get to help me stay creative even with a busy life. To keep me motivated and accountable to staying creative, I've joined The Artistic Mother's Group. You'll find all the details over at Trudy's blog. Come join us.
Each week I'll do a post of my progress as I go through the book. And I'll post links to others in the group so you can see what everyone else has done.
Get your book now, cause the launch of the Artistic Mothers Group starts March 6, 2010.
Hope to see you there.
Happy Thursday,

I have a special message for participants of The Artistic Mother's Art Group on my blog. I will be posting regular updates, tips for doing the projects and notes of encouragement. One of the future postings will be about the upcoming Flicker group for participants. I will have information for alternative ways the projects can look like and so many other things. There is a possibility that our group may be featured in a major art publication at some point, which will go unnamed at this time. We are going to be featured at Designing Moms soon. Everyone will want to post photos of their best work on their blogs because these publications may choose photos of some of the participants' work. I will do a post soon on how to take great photos to help you best showcase your work. I cannot possibly contact each participant individually when something important arises; so if you could check my blog often, that would be great. I don't want you miss anything. To make it easier for yourself, you could add my blog to your blog list. Then you will see when I have posted and you will know when to come.

Tomorrow I will have tips for doing the first project.

I posted a message today about getting started on The Artistic Mother workshop.

Thank you again for being a part of this group. I know we will all get so much out of it and learn how to balance family and art time.
