Everyone is creative in their own way. Creativity is a way of living; it helps you see things differently and has a way of changing things up. Simply put, it is because creativity makes life unbelievably interesting and fulfilling.

The Creative Personality

Argh, the monotony of everyday life...how can we break up monotony? For me, a great way is to add an element of quirkiness, passion and a splash of beauty in everyday life.
I love making digital cards for friends and family. Apart from photography, creating cards is an easy way to get my creative juices flowing.
Nothing says "I think of you" like a personalized card that you designed.

Hope you have a creative weekend! xx

Digging through my archives, I found some images of Wisteria. There's something special about tender blue pink wisteria flower. I know wisteria makes me happy when I look at it. I did not know it was poisonous.

So be careful what you touch, and what you eat.

Hope you have a lovely weekend. xx

However,...

Genius!

A wall that plays music when it rains. Kunsthofpassage, Dresden, Germany.

When the rain starts to fall, this drain and gutter system turns into a spectacular musical instrument. What an awesome invention and design! May we make our cities more bearable.

Hope you have a lovely weekend! xx
