The Importance of Cultivating a Creative Practice + A Beginner’s Guide to Watercolors

Cultivating a Creative Practice + A Beginner's Guide to Watercolors with Melissa Parman, guest poster on Local Milk Blog with Beth Kirby

Hello, Local Milk readers! My name is Melissa, and I am a homemaker and artist living in Texas. I am currently practicing watercolors, quilting, and photography. I believe in pursuing a mindful, slower-paced life, and I am always seeking out simple, sustainable practices for our home.

Today I want to talk about the value of cultivating a creative practice in your life. What comes to mind when you think of having a creative practice? A fine artist gracefully putting oils to canvas? A writer sitting at their typewriter working on their next bestseller? Do you wonder if you can have a creative practice if you don’t identify as an artist? If any of these questions sound familiar, I invite you to share a piping hot cup of tea with me and chat about why cultivating a creative ritual or practice is so essential for our daily lives.
