creative biz plan

I thought my new thing was all about creativity in the healing process, so a few months ago I called this website Julie Gibbons Creative Healing. (you see it up there, in my creative biz plan?).

I discovered last week that it isn’t. It isn’t just about healing. This is a wee story about how it happened (it was an almost instantaneous realisation. I wonder why I didn’t see it before?) Here goes …

I’m designing my Etsy shop (to sell inspirational postcards, greetings cards, journals and art prints – yay!) and I couldn’t fit the words Julie Gibbons + Creative Healing into the title. I ended up with JulieGibbonsCreates and I liked it.

Next, I was updating my Facebook Page with a custom URL and again, Julie Gibbons + Creative Healing was just too many words. It turned into JulieGibbonsCreative — you can click through and give me a Like there if you wish ;-).

And those two things immediately made complete sense – :: Creates :: for the place I sell what I make and :: Creative :: for a page that represents me.

Because this website also represents me, I opted for Julie Gibbons Creative here, too. I hope you like it?

You see, this creative process isn’t only for people who need healing – it’s also for those who;

  • have unanswered questions
  • want more out of life
  • feel a little stuck
  • need to find something new
  • wish to celebrate
  • want to create some more fun
  • wish to unleash anger/frustration
  • want to leave a legacy behind
  • work out a problem
  • conduct self inquiry
  • express themselves without inhibition
  • explore their relationships
  • nourish themselves
  • practice mindfulness
  • [insert your own reasons]

Of course! Of course, I hear you cry. Well, d’oh – sometimes it takes me a little while to cotton on. And sometimes in the most unexpected of ways.

p.s. I’m really excited about it, but the Etsy shop isn’t quite ready to open yet.  Be sure to sign up to the occasional newsletters to hear about special offers which might come your way ♥ The link is just below … thanks!
