End of Year Museletter: it's been a BIG year!

Dear Creative Soul, Here's one last blog post for you as we approach the end of 2015.

As the year draws to a close, I've been dealing with a week long cold and cough knowing that many of you may be in the same boat. Not pleasant, but it's given me space and time away from my business and marketing. Space to gain clarity and a chance to re-evaluate my goals. We are in the shadow time of Mercury Retrograde which occurs from Dec. 19-Jan. 4 whereas the actual Retrograde is from Jan. 5-24, 2016. So, it's a good time to do just that; re-evaluate.

I was planning to self-publish my Creative Soul 'Lefty' Deck, but don't feel the interest is there and I personally don't 'see' it when I look into the future. For those of you that did express interest I offer you this link where you can view all 69 cards in my own personal deck plus several extras.

This past Cancer Full Moon occurring on Dec. 25 may have helped many of you enjoy an even more traditional, heart-felt, homey holiday season because the Moon rules the sign of Cancer and Cancer is all about hominess; it's the sign of the parent; the mother, the nurturer and it also represents our emotions that ask us, 'where do we feel most at home and what brings us comfort?' When I painted this month's Cancer Full Moon Goddess I asked my husband who has a Cancer Moon, what one word best describes how it feels to have a Cancer Moon and he said, 'emotional' and so I explored that word in the painting below.

This past year saw me delve into so many new and exciting projects and I'd like to share them with you, such as:

1. Teaching and facilitating my New Moon Creative Soul Circle for the first time at: Yoga For Life, Temecula Gypsy Luv, Pomona, Rosewood, Menifee Inspire San Diego Studio Mt. San Jacinto College

Moon Circle Collaging

2. Giving Creative Soul Readings in person at: Gypsy Luv, Pomona Bailey's Winery (Elizabethan Feast), Temecula Karma Boutique, San Diego Learning Light Foundation, Anaheim

3. Painting a series of small, abstract, watercolor landscapes both plein air (outside/in the field) and then abstracting them further at home.

4. Turning 50! Plus achieving my lifelong dream of building a cottage on a lake. My husband and I also stayed overnight there the day I turned 50 and spent time canoe-ing on the lake for my birthday.

5. I began advanced Shamanic training (3rd Road Celtic Faerie Tradition) with my mentor, Francesca De Grandis.

6. Myself and two other artists began an artist's support group in Temecula, California.

7. We adopted a puppy that was abandoned in our neighbourhood and named her Djinn Djinn. She is now spoiled rotten and a huge buddy for our big dog Abby.

8. I joined The 52 Project put on by Riverside Art Museum and am creating one new painting a day for 365 days which I post online in the hopes of having a 4 day exhibit at the museum. It's open for anyone to join at any time and then you can have your own show!

9. I finally started an Instagram account to document my 365 days of art plus a Tumblr blog.

It's been a BIG YEAR!

Kathy & Mark

In the coming year I plan to continue to paint and post my artwork and my writing daily. I plan to continue being of service by offering Creative Soul Guidance and I plan to celebrate the New and Full Moon through ritual, meditation and painting which I'll share with you in this Museletter and on my blog.

So thank you dear creative soul, for all your love, support and encouragement along the way.

Blessed Be and Happy New Year!

Scorpio New Moon Goddess

Scorpio New Moon Goddess by Kathy Crabbe New Moon in Scorpio Blessings to You! Here’s a Scorpio Goddess to help you connect with the deep and magickal power of the moment ‘cause i painted Her during this New Moon and remember to set your New Moon intentions for the month ahead knowing that its Lunar Samhain as well which heightens the potency of your new moon wishes ie. Its the Celtic New Year!

The Scoop: Since beginning year two Advanced Training in Celtic Faerie Shamanism with Francesca De Grandis, I’ve felt the power building. I’ve also gone back to marketing and business; something I took a break from over the summer to focus on my abstract watercolor landscape series. I’m also honing in on business staples (but from an artist’s perspective) such as my mission, purpose, target market and unique value proposition thanks to watching and learning from Ann Rea’s one page biz plan and free videos. I’m also ready for a complete website revamp since I’m not too happy with how my WordPress site is functioning on a cell phone. I’m debating between two platforms: SquareSpace or Shopify so that I can finally sell artwork directly from my website.

Here’s a sampling of some of my latest Goddess inspired paintings which were created with both my right and left hands. Why? Because I wouldn’t want to get ‘too perfect’ or precious with my work so I like to shake things up by using both hands and uniting my brain, so to speak.

More Goddess Goodness
