Is Your life Creative?


I have just finished an awsome book/workbook by Alice Bass called 'The Creative life'. It has many exercises in it to help you understand that you are creative just because you are you... Here is a quote she has in it.

" There is a vitality, a life force, an energy , a quickening, that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and will be lost." -Martha Grahm

I would encourage folks to read it.

I am making some new things today and will share when they are done... I'm actually trying a soldered domino pendant, never done that! hope the flux doesn't ruin it.

Cheers!

Oooh! I can't wait to see your new stuff! You mentioned dominoes & I now look at a big box of old dominoes I got on my birthday road trip. They're staring at me waiting for me to make them into something. You may have just inspired me bella!

nikki/whimsylove,
you go girl! I have seen some really neat things made with dominos! For some reason I always think of James Bond's girlfriend..."Domino" that is why I chose #7 domino..lol! Trivia question, 'What movie is she from?' (James' girl)
