QOTW: What is Your Creative Passion?

It seems that we Pagans are a creative bunch. A lot of it most likely strpings from the fact that we write our own rituals and spells, decorate for the various holidays and keep Books of Shadows. So what is your creative passion? Is there a creative hobby that you immerse yourself with? Is it somehow connected to your spiritual path?

I don't know if I am all that "creative", but my hobby is Nature Photography and it definitely connects to my Spiritual Path, since for me Nature IS the Goddess and I find such awe and beauty in every part of Nature.


Here are a few of my latest photos..

I do needlework (mainly cross-stitch embroidery but I dabble in quilting, knitting adn other forms of embroidery as well) and papercrating (mainly card making but also ATCs adn I'm playing around with altered art/multimedia stuff).

I don't know if it fits in with my spiritual path or not, but it does work on my soul... And I find that I get restless if I can't do something in one of these areas each day.

I always somehow work in the arts or when I am not doing that, I make sure that I go to cultural activities.

I've decided that I am really very good at generating ideas, and in the past few weeks I've been focusing on this. In my last interview, I told them that I wouldn't only be an editor, but I would be the person a step or two or three ahead, thinking and throwing out ideas to people and get them to make it happen.

Hi guys ... for me it's designing websites. I love to work with colours and graphics and while I'm creating, I'm oblivious to anything happening

My creativity comes forth in a few hobbies. One of them is beading/jewelry making. My spirituality is connected with that in that I'm currently working on a couple of Pagan style necklaces.

Another creative hobby is belly dance. It was originally a dance in which to honor and celebrate the Goddesses. And while the Celts didn't belly dance, it is very easy for me to turn it into trance dancing. And I can use that to honor my deities and to travel between the worlds.


Another creative hobby is cooking. For me, cooking is almost an art form. It is a way for me to honor the Earth Mother and everything that She has given to us.
