Anna Freud said that " Creative minds have always been known to survive any kind of bad training."
So true, so true. It is a relentless blessing/curse for the creatives in this world. But, overcome it we do and find beauty is all things, colors, shapes, and lines. Joy in a sunny day after the grey skies and downpours.
Take a cardboard ring used to protect your hand from the take-out paper cup you carry from the coffee shop. Alter it in some way to make it appear differently. Glue sparkles to it, collage onto it a magazine image, or stamp it with colored inks. Re-use it when you go in for your coffee/ Or better yet give it to the person behind you in line? What an unexpected delight.

The Easter bunny was busy this weekend delivering golden eggs to my assorted small people. Golden Eggs are best found in greener pastures but have very humble plastic beginings at the dollar store assisted by a can of bright golden spray paint. Puffy paint and stickers complete the small gifts from Mr B. and everyone is pleased. Always remember NO TALENT REQUIRED. Anyone can produce this magic. The blossoms are all for show. I couldn't resist.

Spring is about to be sprung from the cold, grey, and clammy grasp of winter! If showers or even snow is still a possibility looming in your future it is time to bring forth a little spring fling! Take a bare branch from the yard that has fallen to the ground or in a nearby park if you are a city dweller. find that bit of colored tissue paper in your wrapping drawer and a glue stick. Scrunch up tiny little gum wrapper pieces of coloerd paper and glue to the branch, like buds. Put the branch in a muk, coke or other bottle and place near your computer, kitchen sink, desk, or bedside. It will help you get through the muck!
