Hello creative friends which means everyone!

I am always amazed with the over abundance of creativity that all of you share. It's so inspiring. To all of you-I am inspired daily by your creative talents. I feel creativity is such a big part of our well being, our existance of who we are and what we are.

Everyone is CREATIVE! To hear someone say "I am not creative" always persuades me to argue their point. I feel the word creative involves many aspects of our soul. Everyone has creativity in their soul. I feel we can easily enable that creativity by lack of self confidence in our ability to create.

Creativity should be the freedom of self expression. It is by your rules. It is your creation, you are the artist, you are in charge of your masterpiece. It is awesome to be inspired by someone else, but don't let it cause you to feel inferior of your own abilities and talents.

I find creativity more enjoyable when I am creating something completely by my own thoughts and by my own rules. I say make your own as you go! Feel free! This empowerment does wonders for the soul.

You are CREATIVE! Thank goodness life allows us to improve and grow, to learn, to prosper, to succeed, to fall down and get up. You are creating something right not wrong. You are learning, you are enriching yourself and others around you.

I love this video clip, my favorite! I know many of you have seen it, but it is a wonderful reminder of our abilities to create. You can watch it HERE.

Share your views on this subject. What inspires you to create? We all inspire and lift each other up!

Here are a few comments from a few people you might know who share their views on creativity.
Albert Einstein:
The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift.

Arthur Koestler:
Creativity is a type of learning process where the teacher and pupil are located in the same individual.

Beatrix Potter:
Thank goodness I was never sent to school; it would have rubbed off some of the originality.

Buckminster Fuller:
There is nothing in a caterpillar that tells you it's going to be a butterfly.

Carl Sagan:
It is the tension between creativity and skepticism that has produced the stunning and unexpected findings of science.

Edward de Bono:
It is better to have enough ideas for some of them to be wrong, than to be always right by having no ideas at all.

Erich Fromm:
Conditions for creativity are to be puzzled; to concentrate; to accept conflict and tension; to be born everyday; to feel a sense of self.

Erich Fromm:
Creativity requires the courage to let go of certainties.

Franklin D. Roosevelt:
Happiness is not in the mere possession of money; it lies in the joy of achievement, in the thrill of creative effort.

Have a happy and creative day

A Magical Disney Cruise

Hello! I'm back! I've been happily at sea with my family for the past 10 days on a Disney Cruise! It was an amazing trip! We started our journey from Cape Canaveral, Florida. We visited Key West, Florida, Cozumel-Mexico, Grand Cayman Islands and our last stop Castaway Cay.

We were held up at Castaway Cay for an extra 24 hours due to weather conditions. It was great! One extra day of Disney Fun! We were fortunate to be able to change our flights back home with no extra charges. I know it was a head ache for a lot of people trying to get back home.

Now it's back to catching up on 10 days of laundry and back to the reality of life. We will miss the room service, chocolates on our pillows and so much more! It may take us awhile to get back into the groove! No worries--my etsy orders are going out this week! Me and my sewing machine are back in the groove!
