A New Year of Creativity
These days after Christmas are a time to reflect on the past year . . . and time to make some plans for the new year. Resolutions, maybe . . .
I have been thinking about creativity and the new year. 'Do Something Creative Everyday' is the slogan of Paper Source. And that seems like a good intention or resolution, but I start to think about my day-to-day life. Can I really do that? Be creative every day? I don't think so.
Unless I rethink creativity, of what it is to create, to be creative. I can be creative when sewing or when papercrafting, obviously. But also when cooking, or gardening. Or when I am volunteering my time. Problem-solving is creative. . . .
More thoughts on creativity later, perhaps. Time to make something. A new patchwork potholder or a wristlet. A collage card or ATC. Or some eggs for breakfast. Creative eggs.
