Discover ways to spark your inner creative!
This page is dedicated to projects and prompts to get you started creating, even if you don’t consider yourself to be a creative person! All that is required is an open mind and the desire to try. If you are a more advanced creative, then go ahead and use these ideas as a jumping off point. The sky is the limit! My goal to help you discover small ways to add a little bit of creativity to your life, to have fun, and to connect a little bit more with yourself. Remember our focus is on the process of creating, not on a finished product. Not all all art will look beautiful…that is OK! The value comes from the act of creating. If you end up with a piece of art you love, bonus! It is always your choice to share your art or tuck it away somewhere private. You can even even toss it out if you want to, no judgements.
