It doesn’t really matter what you make, it matters what you are thinking. And how one thought changes another. And noticing that. And making a whole out of it. A Oneness again.
My personal abecedarium (or abecedary) continues [from A to K here]. Typically, abecedaries are an explanation of something in a way that is easy to remember. I thought perhaps this could be a fun way to introduce myself (and my blog) to new visitors and maybe reveal a thing or two to long-time readers. So I wrote an abecedarium about myself.
After K comes…
L is for List Writing
Writing a list is a tool to become more creative, to organize your thoughts and your life, to plan ahead and categorize the good and the bad. A list can help you find clarity if you have a decision to make, want to set new goals or just document life in some way. Creating a list is almost always helpful in some way. I always write lists in my diary, and I enjoy creating this list/abecedarium. I hope you like it too. And the fact that my own blog archive is a huge list of interesting content makes me happy.

M is for Memory Keeping
I enjoy documenting my life in many different ways. To me “memory keeping” has always been a big part of my life. I enjoy journaling, photography, layout, design and creating self-published books and photo album books. Memory keeping also include blogging and sharing, the reason we’re here right now!

N is for Notebooks
Call them blankies, notebooks, journals, sketchbooks, planners, idea collections, or anything you want… To me they are filled with potential, promise, white pages longing for my messy hand writing, doodles, ideas and diary collages. I love me a pretty notebook. It’s the best gift, because it keeps on giving…

O is for Organization
Part of a Creative Life is trying to find a balance between messy creativity and organized bliss. In the need to hoard and the urge to use. In trying to create order but also closing your eyes to all the materials that pile up everywhere so that you can create in spite of it all. I try to organize my things so that I can find the right supply when inspiration strikes – and share a few ideas on how on the way. Yikes, what a task! But let’s do it!

P is for Projects
I love sketching out and working within a personal project, setting the rules, finding the time, making it happen, launching the idea. I have done yearlong art projects, monthly projects, book projects, filling notebooks with a theme, and the Postcard Swap Project
twice a year (coming up next, so start making postcards).
