Creativity






This year I have been talking about Choice Cards. What they are is a pack of 52 cards from Lynn Gordon entitled "52 Ways to Nurture Your Creativity". Well my really needs nurturing or a "foot in the behind". So each day I have chosen a card to share with you too. Maybe this will help your creativity as well as mine.


Yesterday the card was "Do It Wrong". Well that isn't a problem. Wrong is the usual way I end up doing it, but I refer to it as improvising. Doesn't that sound better? Usually I can envision a project, but somehow it never reaches my idea, is that doing it wrong? Well the best thing is "keep trying" and quit being my own worst critic.


Today my card was "Live Dangerously" - oh my!! I thought I was too old for that????

Not sure how to fulfill this card unless I paint in an unventilated room, which is not what I want to do for sure.
Anyway I am having fun seeing which card I pick each day. It may not be very creative, but it is making me think.

Well, live dangerously can mean a lot of things to a lot of people. Remember the Flying Walenzas? I think they lived pretty dangerously but I bet it was nuthin to them!! Its relevent.

Thinking creatively I would try a color scheme that I usually or never use. Course, using a saw would be dangerous for me!!
