As I've gotten older I've come to realise what a big part creativity can play in our happiness & not only do I love to hear about other's passions but I want to sing from the roof tops about it too. After finding unhappiness in both unemployment & a 9-5 that didn’t quite give me the satisfaction I was looking for I decided to take more control of my positivity - I realised that creativity is a big factor in combating the monotony of daily routines which we can all feel from time to time.
Creativity can be an important aspect of self-care & mental wellbeing, it allows us to vent our frustrations plus express ourselves in ways unimaginable (even when no-one is looking.) I want to start making a big noise because we all need something that is purely for us, that gets us making original work we enjoy & love.
It can take any & all forms; so if you feel particularly snazzy in your outfit, organised a shelf to perfection, baked a yummy cake, fixed an equation that’s been playing on your mind, visited somewhere that made you think, made some new artwork or products (& many more examples of inspiration) – here’s the place to shout about it!
It’s not just about the big gestures but the little ones too !
Why A Hashtag ?
After hosting my 1st amazing twitter chat with other talented ladies it became apparent that there are other like minded souls who want to find & connect with other creatives. The point of the hashtag #coppercreativity is to start to build a link on social media between everyone who wants to embrace their passions whether they're looking for inspiration, tips or to start a conversation.
