Inspiration

Do you remember the first time you felt inspired creatively?

When I was seven years old, I asked my parents to bring cardboard home from work. They brought the backs of emptied notepads, and I used them as canvas for my paintings. I liked how the cardboard absorbed paint compared to a regular piece of construction paper. Believe me, I was no prodigy (which you’ll see if I share my painting projects here!), but I remember feeling satisfied with my cardboard-painted visions in front of me.

Since then, I’ve explored writing, singing, dancing, beading, crocheting, cooking, and gardening. I’m thinking about making a sun catcher next.

I’m also interested in how other people keep creativity in their lives. We’re all so busy with work, family, and other responsibilities– yet, many people find time to explore and create (because they must!).

These creative moments bring color and light to our lives.

I started this blog to start a creativity conversation. What inspires you?
