Whatever my Artkin blog is about – creating art, food, living creatively, gift-giving ideas, family, diy projects — I hope it will lead you somewhere worthwhile in a positive way. And, somewhere worthwhile is a great place to be!
I’ll hope to convey my passion for creativity and share ways I incorporate creativity into my family relationships and friendships as well. If that, in any way, fuels excitement in you, I’ll feel I’ve accomplished much. I hope that you then will share that enjoyment with another, and, well, you get it. Passion and excitement begets, well…passion and excitement!
I’ll reveal inspired ways that you can be creative — some ideas involve family and friends, others you’ll want to fly solo (because that time is very important, too). Create new traditions in your thoughts and actions – try something new!
Don’t think. Thinking is the enemy of creativity. It’s self-conscious, and anything self-conscious is lousy. You can’t try to do things. You simply must do things. –Ray Bradbury
