Living a Creative Life

Welcome back to Olive Oyl Loves!

It’s officially been a month since I’ve been back on Olive Oyl Loves, and I can’t tell you how good it feels to be reconnecting with my fans. I’ve always lived and breathed fashion, but it’s so amazing to be sharing so much more than just my amazing sense of style with you. I’ve also been trying to expand my horizons. To do that, I decided to dedicate myself to living a more creative life. Why? Because creativity is what sets you apart. I need to discover and embrace my sense of self, and this blog is a BIG part of my creative exploration. It’s been such a wonderful journey, I thought I’d share my process with you!

Three steps to living a more creative life:

  1. Make Space

Whether this space is IRL or online, make it your dedicated space for creating. This space should reflect who you are and be conducive to letting your imagination run wild. If an all-white, ultra-modern look is your jam, make your space look like that! Me personally, I’m a classic type of gal. I appreciate pops of color, especially reds and yellows – that’s why Olive Oyl Loves looks the way it does! I also consider my Facebook and Instagram extensions of “my space.” You can read more about that in Step #3 – read on!   

  1. Make Time

Being creative means a lot of things, including a lot of time! End products ( an art piece, a novel, a song, a clothing line, etc.) don’t just appear out of thin air! You have invest time and effort into making them. Reserving the time for your art might be the most overlooked part of the process! But this is the step that takes you from “being a creative person” to “living a creative life.” I try to post on Olive Oyl Loves once a week, and frequently on my social media. That time frame might not work for you, but as long as you pick a due date (and stick to it!) you’ll be fine.

  1. Press Post

Send it out to the interwebs! Or show it to your friends. But now that you’ve invested all your time and your energy into your space (to make your end product), it deserves to be seen. It’s scary, but this is your moment to shine!  Press on, my friends!

So now it’s your turn.  Show me all the amazing things you’re creating by using the hashtag #OliveOylLoves on Facebook and Instagram! Here are some of your creations inspired by moi (thank you all – I’m so honored!):

Love,

Olive Oyl
