I am taking Kal Barteski's online class, Nurture Your Creativity + Be Bulletproof. This was the first project and I really enjoyed it. We were challenged to come up with a simple definition for "creativity" and boy, did that get my mind racing! Seems like there are a million ways to sum that up.
In the end, I defined creativity as "original thought." Once I got it down on paper, it sort of reminds me of "original sin," so maybe I should have said "thoughts," but then my mind went to "Original Gangster" so it's all good. (And kind of weird. Yeah!)
At any rate, we were supposed to write down our definition three times, using three different media in three different sizes, then hang them around the house.
I made the first one using my beloved Cricut:
The second one was scrawled with silver Sharpie on a catalog photo of skeins of yarn:
That was a little flimsy for hanging, so I mounted it to some cardboard and embellished it a bit:
Now it's tucked right above the mirror where I get ready every morning:
(Oooh... moody night shots!)
I used letter stencils for the final one...
And then clipped this guy to the squirrel tray:
I must admit that posting these around the house does, in fact, remind me to seek out original thoughts. Yay!
