Create, create, create. Creation of stuff is pretty core to keeping me happy. It keeps me from sinking into a mire of depression. It exercises my brain. It teaches me patience and self-control.
So what am I creating right now and, hopefully, in the near future?
I am creating a series of inspiration mosaics on Flickr. Flickr is so full of gorgeous, inspiring images. And I don't use those words lightly. Not much actually inspires me - although I'm working on cracking open that cynical old heart of mine - and I have to really like something to attach the word gorgeous to it.
I'm borrowing an idea from AliE and creating a series of 12 mini books with photos and events from the year in them. Ali really is someone I find inspiring.
I'm creating at work too. I've just finished up some copy for Edenbee which should launch pretty soon (I wrote the copy for the goals in the site) and now I'm doing some work with uber-cool web gurus Clearleft.
I'm not doing a lot of scrapbooking right now, which is sad. But I do want to do Elsie Flannigan's 52 challenges this year and go back to working on my Library of Memories class work. I also have last year's A Year To Remember stuff saved and I'm hoping that an objective look through it all will prove it was worth the money I paid for it because last year it was just too much to keep track of.
I also want to create some home decor pieces after i've got to the bottom of all the boxes here.
