  1. yes! all these things and more…getting our creative juices flowing comes in a variety of ways…even in daydreaming! I really intend to really cultivate the atmosphere that gets my creativity spinning, in large and small ways…I realized it had been six months since I had really posted, then finally was able to get 3 posts in the last two weeks, amazing how life can side track us!!! Wishing you blessing upon blessings this coming year!!!


    1. Keep posting! I adore your blog. So very inspiring. I like to think that everything I do all day long can be infused with creativity. And when I’m stuck in something monotonous or boring I can always get out of it by somehow infusing the moment of tedium with beauty and expression and thought. Like how children operate…their imaginations ruling their days.
