Creative Juices

                                                                                

The awesome Jacqui, over at: Wacky Jacqui' s Designs sent me an interesting e-mail the other day; She's starting her business for blog designs, (Blogger only for now) and she's doing a launch party. I'm so happy for her!
How cool to be starting her own business; Oh well, challenges 
are so important to her.
I have to tell you how in love I am with creative activities and 
special creative spark that ignites the entrepreneurial flame.
I love how creative she is and her taste in design is really 
an attraction to me.
She's definitely a gal of great enterprise. I wish her all the best 
in her success.

Please check Wacky Jacqui's Designs out and embrace
her venture.
A venture worthy of support. xx

Creativity is contagious. Pass it on.
Albert Einstein. 
Ideas are like rabbits. You get a couple and learn how to handle them, and pretty soon you have a dozen.
John Steinbeck.                                                                                                                                        
One who's ever taken a shower has had an idea. It's the person who gets out of the shower, dries off and does something
about it who makes a difference.                                                                     
Nolan Bushnell.
                                                                               
It is better to have enough ideas for some of them to be wrong, than to be always right by having no ideas at all.
Edward de Bono.

How cool to be starting her own business, especially in the creative arts realm! I am so happy for her!

I wish her all the best in her success!

The creative act is such a strange animal; perhaps like a large beautiful animal with teeth and claws. I am faced with a couple of possiblities through an acquaintance of mine of doing something with internet radio that would require real adjustments in how I lead worship and in how one of my churches might do its worship. Of you pictures here I like your white ones best. The bottom one captures an amazing sheen on all the petals. The top one looking through blurred petals is my favorite of the bunch. It defies "logic" by making the flower into a gigantic world to creep through and find wonders.

It's pretty hard for me to be creative with 'artsy' things...at least now I will know where to go!

Jacqui said...

thank you for doing this for me! it really means alot.

Momma Fargo said...

Beautiful pics, Betty! Amazing how you captured the flowers. Looks like I could touch them and smell them right out of your blog!

The markers excite my creative juices.

New business excites me. Good luck Jacqui.

And John Steinbeck words make me want to write day and night. I would marry his dead old bones if that were legal. That's how much I love JS.
