I find myself thinking about creativity more lately. I would have labelled myself a non-creative person, because I can't draw after all. Through things like scrapbooking, I started recognizing that I like being creative. Then I saw in other crafting things I liked to do that, hey - I really am creative. Now, I think about being a creative mom and inspiring my kids to be creative. I really enjoyed this book and got lots of ideas from it. Including a bigger picture of what being creative entails. One idea that I keep thinking about - having an inspiration board. Anyone can put up things that inspire them - a photo, a magazine page, a piece of fabric, ribbon... where the color, texture, emotion, whatever beauty inspired them. I don't know if I'll do it (although I might), but it really made me think about how we should reflect on what things around us give us inspiration.
These 2 things made me feel joy, so I took pictures of them. If I had an inspiration board, I think I would add these pictures. I loved my green tea (with summer blossom honey from the farmers market - if you haven't tried the difference between spring, summer and fall honey you really should, its amazing).
