Sarah and I chat about the way she sees creativity - a place that has space for both structure and chaos. We talk about the harmony of her left and right brain sides of her brain. Creativity is impossible unless you're willing to embrace uncertainty. You have to widen...
This is Sarah Gardner, aka, Juicy*S. Juicy*S is her DJ name. She’s not a DJ. She would love to be a DJ. It’s one of her fantasy dream jobs, really. She got this name when she was slinging paint and working in her art journal with a couple girlfriends,, drinking wine and keeping track of the funny things they were saying on a “sign-in” sheet…just craziness. They all ended up with a DJ name that day. She started her first blog with this name, and she’s had it ever since.
She’s the girl (yes, even though she’s fifty-something, she’s still a girl!) who has a Tutu Dance Party and makes every one of her guests their own tutu! She’s the kind of person who thinks a lot (maybe too much) about things. Art journaling is a creative practice that is her self-care. She loves to take what she’s learned and infuse her art journal pages with meaning as well. She’s a life-long learner, and learning is really what life is all about for her. She’s also a lawyer, a wife, and a mom of two. She lives with her family in Southern California, in a small surf community called Cardiff by the Sea.

How to Collaborate with Other Artists
The Get Messy Season of Collaboration was in January. But community continues to be a Big Deal to us Messy Artists.
If you’ve ever experienced a creative drought, you’ll know the impact that your creative family can have on helping you through it, giving tips on finding the other side, and making you feel less alone in your struggle.
If you’ve ever experienced a creative high, you’ll know how much higher it feels when you share your wins and celebrate your creative flow with others.
In this episode of the Get Messy podcast, I’m calling on the combined knowledge of a small group of Messians. Traci and Meghan, Jenna and Dawn, and Sarah and Melenia share what they learned and what they gained from their creative connection during Get Messy’s Season of Collaboration.
