Andrea Schroeder, creator of ABC Creativity dot com is a creative genius, and more importantly, a believer in magic, dreams and self exploration. Andrea is a textile artist with a Bachelor’s degree of Applied Arts in fashion design. She has proven to be a muse all her own, inspiring people to grab hold of their creative power and express themselves by learning more about the meaning of being true and knowing yourself inside and out. I had the pleasure of speaking with Andrea about her projects, and I would like to share it with you…
i believe in dreams. i believe in magic. i believe that you are a creative genius and you can create *anything*.
Hi Andrea let’s talk creativity! Now, you have been trained as a new thought healing practitioner, can you elaborate on that for us?
I describe it as “a guide, mentor and teacher in making positive change, living the life you want to be living and creating dreams come true.” Being accredited as this type of Healing Practitioner means that i have completed three years of classes plus a one year internship and have completed case studies with my clients that show my work is powerful, effective and transformational. Basically people come to me for help creating something in their lives, and I help them do that.
So, what sparked your desire to create ABC Creativity?
I started creating and facilitating creativity workshops after spending 15 years using creativity as a tool for my own healing and transformation. As my workshops kept growing, I started to bring it online and ABCcreativity was born.
What is the purpose behind ABC Creativity and how would you say it helps inspire ones creative muse? What programs do you offer and how do they work?
There are so many fun things to do at ABC!
I love to journal, it seems to be a positive release for me. What insights can you offer on the subject of creative journaling?
Bringing creativity into your journal is like bringing your superpowers into your journal. Through your creativity you have greater access to your intuition, your authenticity and your ability to create your dreams come true. You can start with collages or just using colored pens. Doodle and play and see where it leads.
Ok, paper doll portraits… tell me more…
My biggest motivator is a desire to be my authentic self and live my true life.
I have to agree with you on that one…and finally, give us your “words to live by”…
You are a Creative Genius and you can do *anything.
and that is a wonderful idea! Thank you for taking this time with me to spread the word about your amazing and inspirational site ABC Creativity! Best of luck to you, Andrea.
Thank you, Kellie!
