Episode 490 of the CMP, a Creativity Matters Podcast — November Gratitude, a Gratitude Cloak, and a Series of Vignettes

This episode is partly (mostly) a read-through of a recent post on the Illustrated Life substack. There is gratitude talk (that doesn’t exist in the substack post) and a series of 10 vignettes that invite you to listen and to make meaning from the juxtaposition of simple moments. There are parrots and roses. There is a bit about baked feta pasta (which was the topic a while back). There are panels about the embroidering of a gratitude cloak.

December prompts are coming! For those of you who enjoy #illustrateyourweek or would like to keep an illustrated journal this December, there will be a new set of prompts. 

More November Gratitude

There are a bunch of older episodes about gratitude, and about gratitude projects, big and small. You can pick up the thread with any of these:


If you want to keep up with more from the CMP, please consider following the Illustrated Life substack. I’ll be sending new content via the substack (so that it arrives in your inbox). Please consider giving it a try. It’s free to follow, and the substack is completely intertwined with the podcast. I definitely see it as the podcast on a page.
