Sherrie McCarthy I am a passionate creative, author and hopeless wanderer who believes that everyone deserves a vibrant and creative life. I have learned through my extensive travels that there is no right way for everyone. Rather the paths are varied and some have to be made fresh. The only thing that is certain is that life is a series of cycles that bring us closer and closer to our soul’s purpose. Much like a caterpillar doesn't become a butterfly without first being a dissolved mess, life is a series of events where we constantly shift from caterpillar to cocoon to butterfly. I started Creative Mermaids to help people through the messy middle of the creation phase and to remind them they are not alone. At Creative Mermaids we dive deep. We know that the messy middle is where the juice of life is and where we learn just how strong we are. Even if we feel like a dissolved mess. I'm here to remind you there is a cocoon. And you can do this. 61 
