12 Steps Of AlteredAnything..................

Hi My name is Rhonda and i love to AlterAnything;

I follow 12 steps of AlteredAnything which I apply to my life . Ann Blackwell had a big part in bringing these steps into being...Thanx Ann

12 Steps of AlteredAnything:

1.We admitted we were powerless over altering-that our lives and our studios had become become unmanageable.

2. Came to believe that a Power greater thatn ourselves inspired our creativity.

3.Made a decision to turn our will,our lives and our altering over to the care of the Goddess and allow her to lead us forward.

4.Made a searching and fear less inventory of our supplies and and all the rest of the junk we save up because ,"I might use that someday."

5.Admitted to the Goddess,to ourselves,to all our friends and to other altering artists the exact nature of our accumlation of STUFF for altered art,and that anyone else's trash is our art stash.

6.Were entirely ready to make altered art day and night to the exclusion of all other work,including cleaning,cooking and even putting supplies away after each project.

7. Humbly asked the Goddess to remove our shortcomings,except when this would apply to our alteredanything addiction.

8.Made a list of all persons we harmed and became willing to make altered art for them all.

9. Made altered art for these people whenever possible,except when to do so would excessively deplete our supply stash.

10. Continued to take an inventory of our supplies,and when we were at the dollar store,liquidation store,or other junk store,promptly replenished it.

11. Sought through creativity and the wide world web to improve our conscious contact with other alteredanything artists,seeking and sharing inspiration wherever we went in our daily lives.

12. Having had an artistic awakening as the result of these steps,we tried to carry this message to other compulsive alteredanything artists,and to practice these principals in all our creative endeavours. AA 2005-2006 Copyright
