Here's a great blog article on kick-starting your creativity... by fiber artist Marcia Harmsen Young. I enjoyed it and think you might, too. I feel good that I do at least a few of the things that she mentions. We should all try to include creativity in our lives more often and as much as we can!

Check out this super cool (such a poor descriptive word, really) book that my friend, Sharon, made just for me for my birthday! She has such great ideas and imagination... words can't express how touched I always am by her handmade gifts. They have touches of our friendship embedded all through them and reflect how deeply she knows and understands me. I especially love the specific references to silly life events, like my recent visit from a bat... she includes with such humor... I will always remember that now when I see the book!
My birthday card from Sharon this year. Very moody and mysterious... reminiscent of the eerie computer games we like to play together when I visit her. We really enjoy the puzzle, adventure, mystery games like Myst, Crystal Key, Rhem and Nancy Drew, to name a few. We both have our strengths and weaknesses that generally compliment eachother... I know I couldn't do most of the puzzles on my own without her help! I get really stumped on the math-related puzzles in particular! She does great with scenic stamping, which I haven't mastered yet. Many of her stamps are from Stampscapes.com you should check it out if you like this card...their stamps are really great!
