Make Art Magic February Theme

February Theme: When You're Perfectly Free
So this month, I want to explore the feeling of being free, of letting down our guard, letting go of expectations and visions of past and future, and just being. We all have moments when this feeling enters us like a swift wind and carries us into the heart of our true selves.

From Rumi:
“Dance, when you're broken open. Dance, if you've torn the bandage off. Dance in the middle of the fighting. Dance in your blood. Dance when you're perfectly free.”

As my favorite yoga teacher, Julian Walker, always says during class, "Come as you are. Some of us are heart-broken today. Some of us are happy. Some of us are tired or have a cold. Some of us are in love. We all take turns. Come as you are." This is such an inspiring mediation on true freedom.

Ways to Share Your Make Art Magic Artwork between February 1-28, 2014:
1. Primary place to post your art and get community feedback is our private Make Art Magic Facebook Group (click the “join group” button to request an invite)
2.Share with the rest of the world across social media using the hashtag #MakeArtMagic

*Don’t forget to put your name/signature/website on your piece so that everyone will know you created it.

Benefits of Signing up for the Ghostkitten Newsletter:

1. You will get the theme 1 week earlier than everyone else. (ex. you will get December's theme on Nov 23)

2. You will get goodies each month to help get the creative juices flowing from music downloads to inspiration boards to guided meditations to poetry.

3. It is easier to keep track of the new themes if it just comes to your inbox rather than having to remember to seek it out online.

I love how these pieces fit perfectly together even though they were made by different artists in different places of the world and probably have never met. Lovely and filled with wonder.
