What floats your boat?

Every year I try to do something new - usually to do with some type of craft or technique.

In my mind, this opens up opportunity for possibility, experimentation and experience.

It helps me to build on knowledge I already have and gives me something new to add to my 'creativity' bank.

It provides 'me time' and a 'zone out' period. I am amazed that I still get surprised at some of my output.

This is a type of motivation that is hugely personal and uplifting.

So... what's your thing? Will you start reading? Read more books? Try your hand at something creative? Makeover yourself? or your home?

Pick something - have fun, learn something and get experience.

Hi Jussie

Good on you! Go with whatever grabs your fancy at the time! Creativity is helped along by all experience - whether you think 'traditionally' or no. Have no preconceptions - just go with it.

I love to experiment with art technique and practice, so I'll draw, paint etc with brushes/bits of cardboard/sticks or do it virtually (digitally).

I love to make things - especially if they don't cost a lot, so I like to think I am resourceful.. I also like to read and have these phases about gardening and exercise and allsorts of other things. As long as I am keeping an interest in something and/or learning about it - its fair game :)
Thanks so much for your comments Jussie xxx...

Hi Mina,
I actually discovered this last year, but I found Zumba to be my thing! Now I am inspired to actually become an instructor. One component of that is learning to choreograph funky moves to music. This involves a lot of creativity. I have discovered to be creative I need to be alone and relax. Very hard to dance if you think someone's looking! But getting out there in the group with my instructor and dancing has been my thing! I wish I could be more creative in traditional ways!! Do you draw? Or mostly make things? Justine
