Celebrating Creative People

My sister, inspired me to create for the love of creation, and this post celebrates people (both well-known and not) who did just that!

Don’t Wait Too Long

So, two weeks ago, I wrote a post about summer creativity. Read it here. My girls went crazy after I showed it to them and they created an arcade of their own. They were busy for days. They created a bottle ring toss, a… Continue Reading “Don’t Wait Too Long”

Enjoy the Little Creative Moments

When I came home from work yesterday, my oldest daughter had left me a surprise. It’s hard to see what each item is, so I will explain. There is a plate in the middle with her signature dish (a culinary treat that she created… Continue Reading “Enjoy the Little Creative Moments”

Creative Work Environments

Who says you can’t have fun at work? Way to go post office for having fun creating this box sculpture. Art, even silly art, is good for the soul. It brings people together, it makes people laugh. Brings wonder to kids. Kudos to businesses… Continue Reading “Creative Work Environments”

This Christmas, I observed adults and children alike being crafty.

Simply with things I… Continue Reading “Christmas Creativity”

Pirate Party – ARRRR!!

We had an Indian Summer last fall in Utah.  My cousin, Jana decided to take advantage of the warm weather and she threw a pirate party.  First of all, there is no one craftier, than Jana.  She can turn nothing into something beautiful and I am… Continue Reading “Pirate Party – ARRRR!!”

Charlotte Brontë

I just finished the novel, Jane Eyre.  I’m actually quite at a loss as to why I haven’t read it before.  I have always enjoyed the story (countless films and two musicals) and decided that I should read it.  So, in honor of such a fantastic… Continue Reading “Charlotte Brontë”
