“Mariëlle stimulates and challenges you in a playful way to go on a quest with her using your goals and her theory to get wherever you want. It’s clear she has put a lot of research into it and it is fantastic of her that she shares this information and transformed it into a course.
This course has been a big eye opener for me on WHY I fail at achieving my goals. For me it does not only help me to get more creative in my life but also in general: TO GET THINGS DONE!”
– Inge Wilbrink
Make big change with little time
Feel like somehow you never have time left to do the things you love?
You’ve come to the right place.
You probably believe:
♥ You need loads of free time to make your dreams reality
♥ You need a huge bank account to create a dream home
♥ You need iron willpower to form habits
♥ You aren’t creatively blocked, you simply need to ‘do it’ (but somehow you never do).
Well… Guess what?
You can make big things happen, with tiny snippets of time, simple methods and a desire to make your life more fun and meaningful. You can create regularly, even when life is messy and hectic and there are a million other things to do.
You don’t have to do it all on your own
Imagine you would have a creative fairy godmother (me!) to help you through the process for 4 weeks. I will take you by the hand. The structure of the course, and the possibility to reach out to me if you get stuck in the process will help you achieve your creative dreams.
You’ll know exactly what step to take next at all times. You get the step-by-step strategies that will turn your creative dreams into creative action. These strategies took me years of stumbling around to discover. And time is exactly what is valuable. Put them into action today and reuse over and over.
You need to know what your creative goals are and reverse engineer the path to getting there. That path is your creativity. The creative process will turn your dreams into reality.
You can also interact with your fellow students in our super secret clubhouse (a.k.a. Facebook Group). It’s a place to ask questions, learn from each other and a happy place for inspiration and encouragement.
Eliminate creative blocks
There will never be a perfect moment to create. Saying; “Yes, but not now”, is exactly what is holding you back in your creative dreams.
If you are interested in many things and have dozens of unfinished projects lying around the house, record and structure your overload of ideas. Know where to start or what to focus on.
Build your creative confidence so you don’t feel guilty about ‘wasting time’ on creative projects. Your never-ending to-do list can wait. Develop a healthy relationship with your inner critic, and the nagging voice will diminish.
Sometimes, even if you have time, you simply don’t have the peace of mind you need to create. Eliminate distractions from your life, and fill it with inspiration and ideas. Work at your own speed. Make creativity fit into your hectic life.
Over a 4-week creative course, you’ll learn how to:
1. Define and discover your creative goals and dreams
2. Start and finish creative projects
3. Implement fun, creative habits
4. Overcome anything that is blocking you creatively

“I’m writing just to tell you that you have no idea how grateful I feel to be enrolled at this course! I find it fantastic and every time I read a new lecture, not only I learn a looot from your experience, but I also notice you chose the perfect words and concepts for each situation, in an original and creative way (of course) and that’s awesome.

Below are just a few examples of the many things I’ve done ‘on the side’, all of which I did when still studying fulltime, or working. Your creative dreams might be different, but it shows that it is possible to create regularly, even when you’re busy.

Mariëlle Coppes inspires people from all over the world to break the everyday boring routine with fun & uplifting creations on her blog MagicalDaydream.com. Her 1000 paper crane project, balloon tree project and paintings have been featured as a book cover, in the TV show ‘De Slimste Mens’, on Flow Magazine Blog, in the newspaper ‘Eindhovens Dagblad’ and on The Play Summit. Her magic fountain design was exhibited at TEDxBrainport.
Mariëlle has a Master of Science degree and loves to share what she learns from her creative journey. She taught a class of 50 bachelor students in Denmark a course on kindness, dreams, play and creativity.
She enjoys translating complex theory into easily accessible material. Her custom illustrations for international clients explain anything from a model for a Canadian school system to the neurological development of infants.
“Mariëlle is AMAZING! She boosted the creativity of my Bachelors level classes, and introduced them into a wide range of fun and unusual, super-creative projects. I can highly recommend Mariëlle to fit into any setting where creativity, imagination, design and interaction are important. My students loved working with her.”

Why did you create this course?
Most people are creative and have endless lists with things they would love to do ‘one day’. A lack of creativity or ideas is never the real issue. But somehow, most of these wonderful ideas get shoved aside in the hectic mess of everyday life.
‘Just do it’ is an oversimplified solution. You need strategies and methods that you can apply to take action towards your dreams consistently, even – no, especially – when life gets messy. Not motivational quotes but practical advice on how to create even if you experience overwhelm, guilt, a lack of time, energy or money, have too many ideas but never finishing any, no momentum or clear plan to achieve your creative goals.
I am terrible at a lot of things. But one of the skills that I do have is that I make my creative ideas real, whatever the circumstances. Whether it’s a balloon tree, 1000 origami cranes, find a new hobby, travel the world, make countless paintings or build consistent creative habits.
I figured that if I would bundle my experience, insights, strategies and ideas in a course, it would help you achieve your creative dreams as well.
When does the online course start and finish?
You decide when you start and when you finish. You have unlimited online access to this course for as long as you like. You can work at your own pace, so there is no need to be present at specific days or times. It’s text based. The course also gives you access to a secret Facebook Group, in which you will be able to connect with your fellow classmates.
What if I want to work slower or faster than 30 days?
You’ll be able to access the complete course materials all at once. The course structure is set up in small chunks and built around a time frame to give you something to hold onto. However, you can go as fast or slow as you like. So if suddenly your cat is kidnapped, there is always next week. Also, if you have a sudden creative urge and a whole day at your hands, you’ll be able to craft your heart out.
So, say I would create more. Why would I want that, ultimately?
The art or results in itself aren’t that important. What is important, is to invest in your creativity and do things you love. Why? Because:
1. Creativity allows you to dream up anything, and then start taking steps in making your vision real.
2. Doing things you love on a regular base will help you develop into a happier version of yourself for your and for others.
3. When you act playfully as an adult, you become an inspirational, living example to others of how to create happiness.
I am not the typical scrapbook-loving-paint-hugging-running-around-with-glue-gun-type-of-creative. Is this for me?
Yes. Crafting isn’t necessarily synonymous with creativity, especially not if you think glitters are the Herpes of craft supplies. The goal of this course isn’t to fill your house with craft projects. It is about empowering you to turn your dream into reality. And it all starts with doing.
Creative dreams are all the exciting things you would love to do to make your life more fun or meaningful. Every person has creative dreams. Perhaps you want to write a book, travel the world, build a canoe, take a pottery class, speak French or go scuba diving. This course if for anyone willing to make their dreams reality, not ‘one day’ or ‘next year’ but starting from today, whatever impossible situation you are in.
Am I too old for this course?
No. If you’re still breathing, you’ll be fine. Seriously though, it doesn’t matter what age you are. It’s never too late to start to do more of the things you love. Wouldn’t it be nice to invest now in yourself, so you can spend the rest of your life being a more happy & fulfilled version of yourself?
What does creativity have to do with habits?
Anything can be turned into a habit. If you turn creating on a regular base into a habit, it becomes automatic behaviour. The good thing about automatic processes is that they are easy to maintain once they’re into place. But making them automatic is the tricky part. In this course you learn how to start new creative habits without using willpower.
What if I’m not happy with my purchase?

Hola Marielle, You are amazing!! I enjoy very much every time I read or see what you create.
