Welcome!

 

Hey good looking! How are you today? I am fabulous and I am so glad you are here! Welcome to Creativity Sparkles! A magical place where time stands still for just a moment, and we can embark on a spiritual or creative journey (whatever tickles your fancy) to help discover who we are again.

Do you?

  • look at yourself and think “damn I am fabulous!”

  • look at your lifestyle and say “It is filled with my awesome touch of sparkle!”

  • share your best parts of yourself with others?

  • let yourself sparkle when everyone else is being dull?

  • believe you are creative in ways that aren’t necessarily artistic?

  • follow your own path, no matter the belief systems you have locked in your brain already?

Well you should!

Hi! I'm Amanda and I am THAT girl who likes a bit of everything, and yet doesn't fit under one label or in one box.  I show other fabulous women who struggle with the same thing. Maybe you're crafty, but not considered artistic. Maybe you just dipped your toe in the metaphysical pool, but are keeping it hush hush. THAT'S OKAY! It's your journey! Where ever you end up, is where you are meant to be! Enjoy getting to know yourself again. I am sure your fabulous self is just itching to make an appearance!

So if spirituality (new age and metaphysical), creativity, and self discovery are your thing  then stick around for a little bit and see what's going on!

Creativity Sparkles is meant to help you discover your place in the world, connect you to your creativity again and enjoy whichever spiritual path you choose. I want people to be passionate about themselves and discover what makes you happy!  Sometimes we look at pictures and think where has the time gone? Who is that person? Through creativity and even some awesome spiritual techniques we can focus on regaining control on us again. We should not feel ashamed or guilty for wanting to put ourselves first. It's needed. 

 

 
 

Who Am I?

So let’s get to know each other shall we? I’m Amanda and Creativity Sparkles is my baby.

I was the girl who went from being quirky and fun, to uptight, and boring. I didn’t realize that being professional meant losing the best parts of me. That’s what I was taught to believe.

I was the fun girl, who went out dancing, wrote poetry, threw themed parties and took random road trips just for the hell of it. I used to dye my hair purple, had a lip ring (which I pierced myself… don’t do that) and wore a lot of glitter. Then I entered the workforce. Had a great job for 10 years and as much as I loved it, it took over my life. I had to become the “professional”, which turned me into the workaholic and then my creative side died a slow and painful death.Over 10 years later, I went on my own personal self discovery journey and I started to fall in love with me again. I went from exhausted, and monochromatic to crazy inspired and full of colour.

Here are some fun facts about me:

  • I love ridiculous bright makeup

  • I absolutely love crystals

  • It’s okay to be a recovering workaholic- first step is admitting you have a problem

  • I used to hate crafting, and now I love it

  • I love all music. Anything from the 50s to now will generally have me moving and grooving. I used to be a raver and club kid! Concerts are my go to for music now!

  • I love movies- My favourite movie is The Little Mermaid, favourite series is the Planet of the Apes, but I will always have Harry Potter on in the background when I am working.

  • I buy books quicker than I can read them.

  • I like to believe I am organized

  • I constantly feel like I am not your typical spiritual person and am constantly looking for answers.

  • Creativity helps my anxiety

  • I am tired of labels

  • I have random dance parties

  • Yellow is my favourite colour

  • I am a typical Gemini

I realized a few things along the way to discovering who I am

I realized that while I embraced my creativity in many different ways, I really wanted to focus on my spirituality as well. Growing up Catholic and falling in love with the metaphysical was a contradiction of sorts. I didn’t feel like I fully belonged with either, because I was being told that the other side was wrong.

Finally I said screw it.

Why was I bothering listening to other people, when quite frankly no one knows who is right and who is wrong. Why can’t there be a bit of right in every spiritual path as long as we are not hurting someone. So I started to dive into what felt right for me. And I started to learn and fluorish and become passionate for more! More everything!

Let's Focus on You!

So if you’re in the same boat (which if there is a lot of us we may need a bigger boat), then definitely stick around and subscribe to the blog! Let’s go on a self discovery journey together and hopefully we will find out where we belong. Ready to take a life jacket and join me? Awesome!

 Is this blog right for you? Hopefully! Here is what I am offering you. A fun time getting to know ourselves, working on our creativity and having the confidence to share it with the world.  I really believe that universe wants us all to be creative in our own ways, so we will look at how crystals, astrology and other new age techniques help to boost our creativity, our happiness and our confidence. We all deserve to be our bad ass selves and show what we are made of to the world. Because I have a little secret to share with you. You may not have noticed it yet, but you kinda rock!

I may be quirky at times. You might find it amusing. We’ll share a few laughs and hopefully make ourselves just a little bit better than when we started. Who’s with me?!

 
 

Peace, love and creativity

Amanda
