{Inspiration Monday: Did you do something creative today?}

inspiration1

Questions to ponder:

Did you do something creative today? What was it? What was it that made you get creative? Something you did? Some place you went? Something you saw? Please give as much detail as possible when answering with your comments.

Hopefully this topic can spark some new ideas for being creative & be a launching pad for us all to find & share some resources (books, websites, activities, ideas, etc…) that really seem to get the creative juices flowing….

So, what did you do today that was creative, and what was your source of inspiration? Or your muse?

I’ll go first: {mine for today was watching my son play at the park in the sunshine…He always inspires me. His innocence. His happiness. His smile. It’s amazing to get to see the world all over again through his eyes.}

Here’s a resource, too: I have a book called the Creativity Workbook: Helping You Connect with Your Creative Self that has some really great ideas.

They separate the 5 senses:  SIGHT, SMELL, TOUCH, TASTE, & HEARING into categories, and there are little exercises that ask questionsthat help you tap into that inner creative just waiting to be roused from slumber…

Here’s a sample:

“Choose an object, a view, or even a person you see everyday. Study your subject, looking closely for details that you may not have consciously noticed before. Simply enjoy looking for as long as you like. Write your impressions – key words, phrases, random thoughts – while looking at your subject.

Sketch your subject.

What about this subject is appealing – why did you choose it?

Imagine your subject in new settings. How would this change your view of it?”

  1. I was definitely creative today. For the first time in more than a year, I began a painting. I just felt a strong desire to do a funky folk art painting and I have spent a fair amount of time on it. Funny, how you can just, all of a sudden, change direction and create something so different! If it turns out maybe I’ll offer a limited edition on ETSY!!

  2. What GOT you going? What fueled your creativity tank today? Were you inspired by your job, or hobby, your ideas, your thoughts, dreams or what was it?

    Please describe your creative process for the day….
