The past year has left me drained of extra energy (and creativity too, it seems). Even though there are very good reasons for that, something needs to change. Because I've realized that in order to really feel like myself I need to be creating, exploring, making an extra effort to notice and share the beauty all around — in whatever forms that may be.
I really believe that creativity needs to be worked on just like anything else, and that it comes easier with practice. So right now I'm brainstorming ways to help myself in that area — perhaps a daily exercise of sorts?
A favorite find: my beautiful colored pencils from the new Kid Made Modern line at Target. They got me thinking about how excited I am for Margo to grow up and work on little art projects with me. I sure hope she gets my love for art and color.
