Want to be INSPIRED?

Are you thinking about those dreams that are tucked away deep in your heart? Wondering if you should pursue them? Wondering where to start? If you answered yes to any of those questions I want to encourage you to join me at the next Launch Your Creativity Event on April 25-26th. As a Certified Life Coach, business owner and a mom, I understand how hard it is to take the next step and answer the whispers in your heart. 

Let's be honest's scary and it's a big challenge.

So you know what I did? I pulled together an amazing group of women that are just like you and I to encourage you.
They aren't just good at what they do, they are the best at what they do. Do you know why? Because everyday they get up and even though the dog threw up on the carpet and the plumbing is out and there's no milk in the fridge, they decide to be their best and impact the world around them.

Here is a peek inside last year's LYC Event:

Cynthia Thompson Schaffer

Launch Your Creativity is so proud to announce Cynthia Thompson Schaffer 
will be speaking at April's event!
Cynthia Thompson Shaffer

Cynthia has authored, Stash Happy Patchwork  and Stash Happy Applique, (Lark Crafts) that are being sold everywhere books are sold and on Amazon. I have 1 book that I co-authored with Jenny Doh, Serge It, (also Lark Crafts), due out April 1, 2014 but available for pre-order on Amazon. I am currently designing and making projects for my 4th book! I have photographed 25+ books in the past 4 years and am currently photographing 3 more books. I have contributed art to 30+ books and magazines, including cover art for 9. 

I started sewing as a kid, like 6 years old. Santa brought me a little tiny sewing machine for Christmas one year and that pretty much shaped the rest of my life. Soon after, I was knitting, crocheting, oil painting and well, you name it, I've tried it!

Way back when ... before I was married, I owned and manufactured a multi-million dollar line of sportswear that was sold world wide ... including Nordstrom! A few years after I was married, the kids came along and soon I realized that I could not do it all and be good at it all. I like to be good at what I do. So, we, my business partner and I closed our doors. Life changed at that point, but I do not regret for a single day being home with my kids while they were young! 

Upon meeting Cynthia you will feel like you've known her forever. Her warm outlook and can do attitude will give you the courage to tackle your dreams. Visit her here for Inspiration.

Introducing Truth Over Tea!

Im so excited to share a new series, "Truth Over Tea" with you. Last summer a gathered my dear friends and colleagues and we talked about the challenges we face as women, business owners, dreamers, mothers, creative souls, artists and the wisdom that poured out was amazing. I told the girls I had a vision to bring these conversations to you to encourage your heart and every one of them agreed this needed to be done.
Here is the welcome video and what was shared about passing "Traditions".
It is with great honor I introduce the "Truth Over Tea" panelists to you:
