My Creativity

I NEED to be creative. Sometimes my creativity involves writing, cooking, re-arranging my furniture, or attempting a crafty project by gluing something with Mod Podge. My “artsy” projects are always a little iffy. I try to follow the directions and end up making short cuts which results in a “Well, I tried” attitude. 

Last year I found a project that was so me and I “made” a journal. It looks pretty cute but the thing won’t lay flat so instead of using it as a journal, I just record all of my passwords in it. “Well, I tried.”

In December I thought I would get a jump start on a planner for 2011. So, where did I go? Walgreens! Actually I was already there doing a Register Reward deal and saw cheap day planners (but just the layout I like) for $2. 
I got it with the idea of Mod Podgeing scrapbook paper on the front and back covers to “personalize” it.

Kind of a “patchwork” design because I failed “cutting” in kindergarten. I really did.

Problem is, I accidentally Mod Podged some of the pages to the covers and now they are stuck. 

When I tried to “unstick” this page, it tore.

The good news is they were those pesky “personal information” pages and I already know all of that about me, so whatever…
Hey, I tried.

Again, as the 1st quarter comes to an end, I will re-evaluate and plan my goals for the 2nd quarter. 
Early in 2009, I was doing a series I called “Shop Your Closet.” I may bring that back. It was fun. It was creative. And the best part was my cameraman ~ Andrew. I love that boy with all my heart. I miss him.Terribly.

I love to see women expressing themselves in a creative way. My friend, Cheryl, put together a beautiful Aloha Tablescape at the school where I teach. It was Teacher Appreciation week. Cheryl is on the left in the short sleeves. Her sweet daughter is the young girl in turquoise. Thanks, Cheryl, for a feast for the eyes as well as the stomache! I had a bagel & fruit on a skewer!

My friend Natalie, cake decorator extraordinaire, created this beautiful cake. Even the “dress” and “shoes” are the cake!
Creative women everywhere…I admire you. I appreciate you. I am your friend!
