Let’s Get Creative …

A few years back I was talking with a co-worker at my old 9-5 job about different books to read involving creativity and she strongly suggested Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert. It piqued my interest as we deepened in the conversation because this book was about creative living beyond fear. Something I was struggling with at that very moment both personally with my artwork and professionally with my dead-end job. So, during my lunch hour I immediately ran to the book store to grab a copy and to my surprise it was on the shelf labelled “staff picks”. So that means it must be good, right?!

It was one of those books that you just can’t put down. A real page turner as Elizabeth talked about how creativity is sacred yet not sacred. And that what we make matter enormously yet doesn’t matter at all. And how in a way, we’re alone in our thoughts as we create because art is a crushing chore and a wonderful privilege. She clearly states that “the world wants to be made, and it wants to be made through you.”

This got me thinking … Why are all creatives so afraid about unpacking their creativity?

The real reason we don’t move creatively ahead is always and only fear. ~ Elzabeth Gilbert, Author of Big Magic and Eat Pray Love

Crystal Kordalchuk

Crystal is an artist, a writer, an organizer, a dreamer, a doer, and down-right proud of it NERD!.

Struck with a love for #AllThings creative at a very young age, Crystal dreamed of a life fueled by her passion for creating and bringing the stories and images in her mind into reality.

As she worked toward her dreams, she earned a diploma as a Computer Applications Specialist then another in Graphic Design and from there began to develop her extensive background in multimedia and the arts. She began her worked in the magazine industry as a layout designer and had a succession of design jobs thereafter. It was her role as a graphic/web designer that gave her the first real glimpse of her future. Soon she began a side job as a freelance designer while keeping one foot in the corporate world. A spark was lit! She turned her freelance gig into a full-time business combining design work with her other passion: creating organization from virtual chaos.

Crystal is one of the most organized individuals on the planet. She is by all means a Zen master of her crafts. She excels at helping others become “untangled” and provides her clients with tools to run their businesses smoothly while she takes care of the details behind the scenes. Thus Virtually Untangled was born. A successful business where her work as a top notch creative in graphic and web — with a twist of virtual assistant — married into one amazing place where clients can come with their virtual messes and become magically untangled. Crystal can always make sense of even the most unorganized chaos and offers a virtual detox of order and peace, so her clients can get busy doing the work that they love the most.
