Thoughts on creativity

Hey! Old Man Winter! Aren't you about ready to lay down your head for a nap? I'm not so steady on ice but time and a poodle wait for no (wo)man.

My poodle-boy is a schedule freak. He tracks the clock better than anyone I know. He knows when daylight saving time happens and adjusts. He wanted his walk this morning, neither rain, nor snow, nor sleet nor dead of night shall deter him.

To turn this into a creative post. I started my day reading my library book, Creative is a Verb by Patti Digh.

She writes very well and in an entertaining fashion--- many of MY thoughts on creativity. I am enjoying the read although I am highly distractable. Mid way into the first chapter and in my pj's still, I carried my coffee into the studio and considered fabric choices for the video tutorial I'm doing for the blog. Yesterday I cut everything, and made one block as a test and the white fabric is too see-through for this project. It looks the best, no other fabric in my stash works as well, yet I must find another one to use.

I guess you can read about creativity or you can put it into practice. The book will wait.


  1. So strange, I'm living near the North Pole, and we have nearly summer temperatures here. You can see on my blog today what it's like.

  2. So many have endured a long harsh winter this season. We had are little bit that shut down Charlotte for a couple of days than it warmed up again. We have been quite fortunate. Some days we have to give in to our creativity pulls don't we? Glad it won out over reading the book. Our pets are so funny aren't they! Ours is so much into routine. Though for some reason she has decided to share her snoring hanging out with me in my office/quilting studio today. She usually hands with hubby while he does telephone work. Thanks or stopping by my blog! :)

    1. Correction -> :) She hangs with hubby. Thanks for . . . Need to slow down and read what I type!!

  3. Hi LeeAnna!
    The title of the book says it all! Creative is a verb! Must be a good book for you to be half way through the first chapter and already busy with creative activities! I'll look up this book here! Thanks for the tip!
