Journal to Create Space

calling all renegades

Are you ready to make a change, reinvent yourself, and make time for self care and creativity?

Are you on the cusp of seeing your potential to be a better version of yourself and you want to know how to do this?

Would you like to find your voice and be wild with purpose?

You don’t need to be an artist or have fancy art equipment. All you need is a journal, some pens or pencils (or watercolour crayons), and a willingness to stretch yourself and think outside the box. That’s it.

If you answered YES to any of these questions, this FREE resource is my gift to you.

This is for you if...

  • You want to make time to create, a space to feel and think.
  • You want to use your art and creativity (journaling, sketching) to find a sense of purpose, to express your inner self, reach and connect with others.
  • You want to develop a practice for getting unblocked.
  • You know you are worth the effort.

But you struggle with taking the time for yourself or creating a consistent pattern or habit.

It’s time to create space for yourself!

I’m here to share my process for creating, for getting unblocked and to answer your questions and guide your process.

Hi, I'm Meryl Cook

artist, author, speaker and facilitator

In 2016 I launched my current business and have taught creativity workshops across Canada and the US (and online since 2020). I started with the fibre arts and journaling community and then added working with leaders and their teams, helping people to de-stress, connect and articulate a vision for their organization. In 2023 I launched a webcast called Renegade Conversations, which is available on YouTube as a video and wherever you listen to podcasts as an audio version.

Regardless of which hat I’m wearing – webcast host, facilitation, speaking, writing, sharing my art – my why is to inspire others to connect with their joy and creativity. When our creativity is unblocked, we can embrace a renewed sense of purpose and experience increased energy and focus. We can find our voice and be wild with purpose!

In my workshops, people tell me they need help with creating time to do their art, journal, and just take time to think. They want something beyond a one-hour or three-hour workshop. And they want to work more with me.

I wanted to offer something of value - that would help others to find their voice and be wild with passion - at no cost to you.

This is why I’ve formed Creating Space – because we are all worth it. Worth taking time for self-care and creativity.

Meryl Cook Engagement by Design

Here's how it works...

You'll receive a journaling prompt and creativity/design tips from me each week.

These tips will be designed to encourage you to take a few minutes each day to draw, sketch and write. Expect them every Thursday.

You will have an opportunity to interact with me by hitting reply to the email. I'd love to hear if the prompt resonated with you!

Here's what you've been telling me...

You’d like more of...

  • how to express your inner self in writing and maybe art
  • how to establish a creative journaling practice that is sustainable
  • how to turn a feeling or event into a shape/colour/concept
  • how to really cultivate creativity, ideas and inspiration daily and put them into works of art
  • how to develop a wellness habit
  • time and space to delve deeper

"Oh Meryl, I love ... the prompts to make us dig deep and search within. Looking forward to some down time to really look inside on this one."

"I was excited to see your prompt today. I love adventure and it made me realize how much I have missed it this last few years. Lots of changes in my life and when I read your prompt it made me realize I need to get adventuring once again."

"Creating Space has been a very liberating process for me. I realize my creative process doesn't have to be perfect."
