Ends & Beginnings...

Today is the bittersweet final day of the Creativity Boot Camp. I have gone on {and on} in previous posts about how completely this experience went above and beyond all my wildest expectations. So I won't go into that again. I will simply say that it was sincerely amazing!

In an effort to continue some of the beginnings and friendships that were made over the past two weeks, I'm starting a new weekly feature called The Sunday Creative here at Life Set to Words. Each Sunday, I will be providing a weekly creative prompt along with a post that you may link up to all week long. Hopefully, through this new project, we can all continue along the creative paths that we have begun to forge and maintain the community and relationships that we have developed along the way. So feel free to join in, take a badge, and spread the word! The Sunday Creative will begin Sunday, June 27th.

The Sunday Creative

Although I am sad to see such a wonderful even come to an end, I am excited to be able to get a little break from all things online related...which I will be doing ALL. NEXT. WEEK! While I'm off, I will be meeting friends, fulfilling dreams, and taking gobs of pictures! I cannot wait to share everything with you when I return to this online world!

Considering that I will have all kinds of pictures to show you after next week, I am going to have some picture only blogs scheduled for next week {trying to clear out my stockpile a bit}. And make sure you stop back on Sunday for a very special treat!

Thank you so much for the Creativity Boot Camp, I have really enjoyed myself and have tried out plenty of new techniques that I shall be using in the future. Love the idea of the Sunday Creative - I'm in!
Thanks again :)

The bootcamp seemed so awesome and I wish I could have really participated (too crazy here). So I'm thrilled to hear of some weekly goodness! That I think I can handle. Will you still use the bootcamp Flickr pool for those?

{Amy} June 18, 2010 at 12:03 PM  

Good for you , Maegan! You so deserve a break...have a great week!

Carolyn Phillips June 18, 2010 at 3:13 PM  

Hope you enjoy your break, it is well deserved.
Thank you so much for boot camp, it has been a real boost to me. I'm taking the weekend and probably next week to finish up and to try and summarize for myself lessons learned and action plans.
Looking for ward to the Sunday spot.

Hi Meagan,

Just found your blog through Dropped Stitches and so sad I missed the creativity boot camp. Sounds like an awesome experience. I am, however, thrilled to know that you are going to continue with the Sunday Creative and I'm so excited to be part of it.
I've already posted your button and I'll do a post one day about it too. Sooo excited!!

Hope you enjoy your week off! So glad I found you. :)

Sounds like great fun... Enjoy your week!

SweetPea June 19, 2010 at 11:59 AM  

Lovely! Looking forward to it, Maegan!

May just be me, but couldn't link-up to the Bigger Picture Moment button for blogs. Have tried it several times and don't have an issue with others. Just thought I'd let you know in case it's not on my end :)

Time to put your feet up and relax for a bit if you can.

I've really appreciated the Boot Camp and got so much out of it.

I'm looking forward to seeing what you have in store for us next Sunday now xx

Bonnie June 19, 2010 at 4:38 PM  

I am so glad you will be continuing with a creative prompt on sundays. I started off in boot camp on day 1 and made it to day 5 before I started to slack off! I was having so much fun and even getting the kids involved in helping me to really think about the special word prompts for my photos. somehow, I just got away from the computer for a few days and that was it. I enjoyed the journaling too. I have been journaling on and off for many years now. i will definately continue with your Sunday creative prompts.

Bluebelle June 20, 2010 at 5:45 AM  

So happy that the creativity journey is continuing! Thanks!

Bev L June 20, 2010 at 11:27 AM  

I want to thank you so much for creating the boot camp. I needed the boost, and the soul searching that came with it. I still have a lot of the journaling to post but it sure got me to thinking about writing again. Thanks again for the time I know this took and the energy. I look forward to the Sunday Creative.

I hope your computer hiatus is refreshing.

Thanks again -
