To Create is to… (Fill in the blank!)

I’m slowly recovering from a nasty cold/flu and with that means my mind is foggy with little room to write or make art. I also just turned 30 on Sunday! And with that, I suppose, I’m mulling over the aspects of myself that I have nurtured… Specifically, my creativity. So, I had the idea of starting a “fill in the blank” series of what it means to me to be creative! I would love to hear what it means to you! Here’s my initial thought:

Oh Winter…

Just a note to say that it seems wintertime and the holidays have blocked my ability to write! Does anyone else find this? I’m so stuck and its incredibly frustrating. I even have ideas! Yet, my mind stops cold. It’s as though I hit a snowdrift and I am immediately covered with a blanket of white, white snow. Hoping to find some time for hands on art to help loosen these creativity-stifling claws!

Until then . . .

Well, something has been brought to my attention by a dear friend. With the holidays and winter, I’ve been cooking and baking much more. Those activities can be quite creative! So even though I’m feeling blocked with my writing and painting, I am in fact still being creative. I thought I’d share photos of my annual tea sandwiches I make for Christmas. I also made several desserts and a delicious beet bruschetta.
