Thank you for being part of the Inner Creative community this year.
It’s been such a privilege to be a part of your creative journey – whether it’s bringing more creativity into your everyday life or work practices, or unlocking your creativity to get some more insight into your business. I love witnessing those aha moments and the joy when it all clicks into place.
So here is my Christmas inspired mandala for you.
It’s based on the Christmas Star – but no matter how you celebrate the end of this year, may it remind you to shine like the brilliant star you are.
Welcome to this month’s instalment of The Creative Life interview series!

It was so inspiring to speak to Alli about how much she loves her business and how creativity is such a fundamental part of running her business. She has a such a grounded down-to-earth attitude to it all, yet still manages to bring a sense of play and fun to everything she touches.
This interview is like having your own private biz mentoring session with Alli. So keep on reading to learn about:
How it’s always easier to find the time to do things that you are most passionate about
Finding a balance between work, kids and running the house
Working out what your customers want to make money
What to do when your ideas don’t work or when you get stuck
The big mistake that Alli sees people making in their business and the part that fear can play in it
Welcome to this week’s Inspiration Mandala called “Return to Self”.
This week’s mandala was inspired by a friend’s suggestion for me to create a mandala around the theme of being homesick. I also wanted to do something more abstract and not symmetrical after receiving such a positive response from sharing last week’s black and white asymmetrical Light and Shadow mandala, as well as Jacinta Cubis’ urging to break patterns in last week’s The Creative Life Interview.
