Speaking at Country Day School

I had the great pleasure of visiting my home town to give a lecture. While I was there I taught 2 workshops, and after that I did a lecture at a high school. I’ve never lectured ¬†at a high school before, so I was a little bit nervous but mostly excited to donate my time […]

creativeLIVE Photo Week Images

My second time at the creativeLIVE studios was just amazing, as I knew it would be. To be around such hard working and dedicated people is truly a gift and I do not take it for granted. The best part? Getting to meet the students and spending time with them outside of the classroom. We […]

All You Need is a Little Faith, Trust, and Pixie Dust

How many times have you found yourself reaching for a big goal, climbing the ladder upwards, only to look up and see that the ladder has grown, shot through the clouds, no end in sight? I find this happening from time to time; I go after a dream, I start climbing the ladder that I […]

Dreaming of the Past

Fairy tales are very close to my heart. I sometimes feel as though I live in one all the time, or at least when I remember to. It is so easy to let negativity flow into our lives as though it were natural, but when we stop and remember that our lives can be exactly […]

The Joy of Beginnings

I had a really amazing experience recently during a workshop I was teaching. I decided to open up my Flickr¬†page to show the very first images I ever created. I like those images. I am proud of the work that I did to create them and I like sharing them with people. There are, however, […]

Brooke Shaden + creativeLIVE = Happiest Time Ever!

Oh honestly now, how am I supposed to start writing about an experience as massive, life-changing, and jaw-dropping as creativeLIVE? I am truly stumped, as I have been for days, hence my putting off writing these words. I thought something brilliant would come to me, but since it hasn’t I decided to write from the […]

Creating a Mermaid, and Teaching It, Too!

I love mermaids. I love tension. I love anything abandoned. I love flowing gowns. I love water. Needless to say, I was very excited about this picture.

Dallas Workshop!

Last week I was in Dallas, Texas teaching a two day workshop. As is often the case, almost no one was from Dallas! But I sure did feel the southern hospitality. I started out my trip by going to a grocery store where we asked a clerk what fresh foods are the best right now…he […]
