My How I've Grown
Oh My!! How I have grown. I have been seeing this book on all my favorite creative peeps blogs and thought hummm I must have this book. So searching I went onto Chapters web site. I purchased one and so did my friend Nicole so we can totally discuss it, right??
Twyla writes about how creativity is not a gift from the gods that it takes preparation and effort. I totally agree..we can take from what she says through out her book and apply it to our own creative venue, whether it be dancing, scrapbooking or wherever your interest lies.
I love the title of one of the chapters in the book, I am totally gonna use this one: "Before you can think outside the box, you have to start with a box"..I love it. She says she uses boxes for every project she does, she stores things in them like notes, cd's etc.. Organization is what I need! I can totally be creative when my space is organized and I know where everything is..there is nothing more frustrating when you can't find that particular embellishment that would be perfect for your layout. urgggg...
My goal is to use Twyla's book to guide me into My "Creative Habit"!! If you don't have this book..you totally have to get it!!
