WHY I WROTE THE BOOK

Hey honey, 

My name is Amanda O’Bryan, I am the founder of Creative Queen Bees.

By doing ‘Daily Acts Of Creativity’ I discovered a way to open my heart, hands and mind in re-connecting with my creativity. I found a re-newed sense of meaning and purpose in my life. 

As a successful creative business owner I was stressed, overworked and suffering with the limiting self-belief of ‘not being enough’.

I felt burnt out and subsequently was diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer, undergoing extensive surgical treatments.

Throughout the book I share how I felt I’d lost my creative self during this time. The journey back to that integral part of my life began when I incorporated small daily acts of creativity throughout my recovery.

By re-engaging my muse I helped to re-set my course, to find greater contentment and a happier, healthier, creative life full of love.

The book first found it’s way into the pages of my daily journal in the form of abstract ideas and thoughts, lists of things to make and do, based on my 20+ years of experience as a creative professional. The journal became my own personal guidebook, a masterplan for how to live a long, happy, healthy, creative life full of love.

Faced with the uncertainty of my future, ‘Daily Acts of Creativity’ helped me break through long held beliefs and stories that stopped me from fulfilling my true creative potential.  With awareness, courage, curiosity, playfulness, gratitude and connection, I have healed my past scars, learned to truly love myself and improve my overall wellbeing.

This book will help you do the same – it will help you to connect with your own unique, personal creativity, discover your true natural gifts and talents. It will help you be your creative, authentic self – the person you were born to be.  

With much ♥ Amanda O’Bryan

ABOUT

Hello, Amanda here.

I am an artist, illustrator, designer and founder of Creative Queen Bees.

I spend my days drinking way too much tea, working from my studio in the back garden our 1910 Australian Federation house. I live in a quiet little village called Lorn on the Hunter River in Maitland, NSW.

Most days I work on commissioned design, art and illustration for my lovely clients, plus the daily work of a studio art practice.

SNEAK PEAK PRAISE FOR THE BOOK

“I love your ideas – your writing and spirit. I think it’s fabulous – I bloody loved it”  

Fiona Donelly

Writer, Telopea Services

Daily Acts of Creativity is a fantastic read for anyone in need of discovering their potential or reigniting their creative spark. Written with heart and soul this beautifully illustrated book is full of easy and actionable steps into how to start, what it means to be creative and how to use creativity to live your best life. I would highly recommend this to anyone interested in letting go of their inner critic and embracing their inner creative.

If one word could capture the essence of Amanda O’Bryan’s “Daily Acts Of Creativity“ it would be love. Each of these fun, soulful activities asks us to take a little bit of time to listen, see, feel, sense & experience life – to breathe in our lives instead of rushing past them. By choosing to do the activities you resonate with you’ll discover that creativity isn’t about producing a work of art; it’s about play and taking time to acknowledge & love ourselves. 
In “Daily Acts of Creativity“ Amanda has thoughtfully chosen creative activities to help us reconnect with the world around us so we can discover the world within. To make space in our busy lives to bee”.

I’m proud of my friend Amanda and the release of her new book. This means a bias review 🙂 and, it also means that as her friend, I can vouch for her heart, her integrity and the intention she has for this book and you the reader. Amanda wants to help people in the world to get in touch with their creativity. This book is a beautiful introduction filled with sparks of love and fun and play. I loved reading it and I know you will too.

Just what I needed to kickstart my year! My creativity always seems to take a back seat, for “when I have time” so of course never happens.  This will allow me to pick out a fave activity once a week and actually get started. Thanks Amanda, I love the book, your ideas are fabulous! You’ve inspired me 🙂
