Well, painting my kitchen wasn't using creativity, but it did make me feel connected with my artistic side since I was using Purple Paint! There is nothing that makes me feel better than painting something purple! I think it accentuates my sliver collection very nicely, don't you? - however now I notice that my collection needs a dose of polish.
And today, I had my kids deconstruct the Christmas cards we received to make our own Thank You cards to send to our loved ones. This is a great way to recycle the Christmas cards that we normally toss out after the season is over, plus, the kids learn the importance of creating something special to express their gratitude for the gifts.
