Have you been believing these lies PERFECTION is telling you?

Lie #1 - That we’re not ready or we’re not creative enough because we need to know more, be more or have more, in order to start.

Lie # 2 - That our creative callings or cravings must give us a guaranteed result like gaining a title, making us famous or a set amount of money, in order for it to be worth pursuing.

Lie #3
- That what we create needs to be perfect in order for it to be worthy of our time, energy and resources, otherwise, what’s the point? Anything less than perfection is failure, so it’s better to wait than risk falling on our face.

Lie #4
- That whatever we create needs to be grand, unique or huge leap for it to be worth pursuing.

MAKER OF MESSES, MOSTLY ACCIDENTAL, SOME ON PURPOSE.

When I say I’m usually found covered in paint, it’s not a cute marketing gimmick, it’s true. I own more clothing with paint splatter than I do clothing without.

Painting helped me embrace imperfection, rediscover my creativity and feel the joy of making something just for the simple BUT profound purpose of making it.

I created Revel in the Mess because our creative callings, our businesses and most of all ourselves, were never meant to be perfect.

I don’t teach or facilitate because I’ve got the secret cure to solving perfectionism or because I don’t experience it. I still get the whisper of perfection from time to time. The thought “what if I really mess this up?”, stops by on occasion. But noticing it helps. Not letting it make all my decisions, helps. And most of all giving myself permission to make a mess helps.

I teach and facilitate because I believe we’re all creative and I know you have ideas + art inside you (and your notebooks and sticky notes) that are worthy of being shared with the world.

I’d love to help you embrace imperfection, reconnect with your creativity and navigate the messy creative process. Write to me via email and tell me about your favourite art supply and how I can support you.
