Yesterday marked the last full moon (called the Frost Moon) of winter, and while the effects of the full moon are felt for a few days, I certainly feel like spring is on the way.

This post will be part of a new series of monthly blog posts, all about how creativity, across many different creative activities, can help with your mental health.
