Lena from This Lovely Little Day reached out to me a few weeks ago and asked if I would like to help put together a link-up focused on creativity. And of course I said yes. Because we all get into a rut when we feel like the log floating down the river has more creative energy than we do.
And while I am by no means an artist of any form besides witty remarks, I love the idea of getting out of my comfort zone and into the habit of thinking creatively. Lena is a wonderful drawer/sketcher/artist and I envy her ability to use a Moleskine notebook for its intended purpose. But have no fear because if you, like me, would rather not take pencil to paper, that is ok too. The whole point of being creative is working in a medium that you enjoy, or trying a new one if that is your cup of tea. Charcoal, watercolor, photography, decoupage, graphics, you name it, it will be welcomed into the creative initiative.
So here's how it will work:
Next week's theme is: What did you do today?
We would love to have you become a regular contributor to The Creative Initiative. It's a wonderful way to encourage others and to become inspired. If you feel like you have been in a creative rut of sorts, this is the perfect exercise to work your way out of it.
