The Creativity Project

I have had a slight bump on my creative road lately. I have had spurts of creative genius. But I have also had bursts of creative slumps. Lisa Day is putting The Creativity Project out there for all.
First of all, I love the picture of the colored pencils. Just so vibrant and fun. Second, her take on creativity fits right in with mine. Her project is to do something creative everyday. Simple. Doesn't have to be a layout. Or to make a project. Just something. It really isn't hard. You are already doing it. Go to her blog and read more about it.

I have long been a believer in creativity in ALL aspects of my life. Starting with my shower in the morning. I sing, offkey, but I sing. I draw in the steam on the walls. Sometimes it's just a doodle, sometimes I sketch layouts, sometimes I will leave a love note for my hubby. Next comes the ensemble for the day. Talk about getting creative. I have to cover all these extra pounds with the same close that were bought for a smaller me. And it just goes on and on...
Creativity is part of who I am. If I don't feel like I have expressed myself in some way during the day, I fell like I am wilting. It is tied into my spirituality. It needs to be fed everyday.
Today was a combination of creative endeavors. It started with the singing shower and progressed to breakfast. We were going to go out for breakfast, but it was raining so hard that we decided to stay home. French toast. Yummy. I started loading my music library on my computer. I helped a fellow Girl Scout adult load boxes of "stuff" into her car. I freed up a hugh amount of space in my garage. I dabbled a bit in my scrap room. Then I took leave of my senses and went to SAMS. Did I mention that it was raining. A lot. I got soaked. But we now have enough meat to last until New Years Eve. Unless the girls have another growth spurt. Then were only good until next weekend. Dinner tonight was Chicken Parmesan with whole wheat spaghetti. I made dinner without a recipe. It was good. A bit too much salt. But tasty. Everyone agreed. No pictures. Sorry.

You are a creative lady and I can empathize with that feeling that you need to make something creative every day in your life. Good for you, Jana!
