  1. The one I read was Creating Mindlessly

    I sometimes get in my own way when creating so this was a good one to read right now. For someone who relies on art therapy heavily having a creative block can feel like a blow to the healing process.

    This is a really good list you have here. I also checked out the one about dolls. I started making dolls as art therapy myself. I wanted to work with a traumatic experience involving needles. One doll lead to another and now I’m actually making therapy dolls for others. Art therapy is one of my best healing tools.



    • Hi Austin,

      I have made some healing dolls as well. Though not in some time. I would love to do that again in the near future.

      Well you are so talented it is hard to imagine you would have any problems in creating. Though I understand it doesn’t work that way. I love your creative work. Good and healing thoughts to you.
