I like to find the limits of things. Use it in a way that wasn’t envisaged. Or push it to the point where I find that it cannot do something. Don’t know why I enjoy that, but I do.
Everyday is an opportunity to reinvent yourself! Be creative by changing your routine; being kind(er) to others; being (more) grateful and try something new (new receipt; new way to get to work; new work connection; develop a new skill or rekindle an old one). It’s difficult but when you do it; positive energy flows through you.
Being brave enough to try something new
requires a certain level of creativity. I like repurposing old things and try to stretch my mind to think outside it’s usual box.
Lately I have been baking fancy 3 layer cakes for family birthday parties. I like that I can find people willing to share their talents on U-tube which helps me to venture into new territory. 😊
Through writing, and cooking, and baking. brainstorming with others is always a creative endeavor.
I feel creativity sometimes appears as a part of how I might support people, ideas that come up when unconditional space is there; singing is something I love, but in my way of singing, i would not name it creative. I just sing, but may be it could add to inspire singing and love for music in others, or singing together. Painting and drawing has become rare, but if, it is pure joy. Cooking together with friends I experience as a creative process, using mostly no recipe, simply using what the kitchen offers, which, nevertheless, most of the time tastes delicious, as my friends say, without me really knowing why.
I enjoy painting. I just started not that long ago and I really enjoy it. I also enjoy yoga and meditation. I feel they are both creative.
I express creativity through my writing. When I write, I feel myself sinking into a flow of thoughts and ideas that sometimes allow me to articulate what I was previously unable to articulate verbally.
Through preservation, conservation and restoration of antique furniture – working with wood and leather, carving, oils and waxes with my hands in the material sense and the stories and provenance in an immaterial sense.
I’m not sure how creative I am. Often I look at things people have done and am like, wow that is so creative … for me creativity is related to openness, to spaciousness. The more open I feel the more there is a spontaneity that seems like a creativity and that is related to my capacity to be present with my experience, honest with my experience while also striving to create more space and freedom mentally for myself. I think for me it’s that’s spontaneous joyful quality where it just happens, the dishes I cook come out beautiful and innovative, the actions in my everyday life seem more joyful and funny, it’s a whole way of expression of something inside that’s honest and sort of easy/spacious.
I make beautiful handmade cards (so everyone says!) that I give to people as keepsakes. I love doing it, especially when I can capture someone’s spirit.
I like to write and create zentangles.
Fascinating. Had never heard of this. Thanks.
Lots of ways. Ideas come to me for new ways to do old things, such as ‘furnishing’ my guinea pig’s cage, or tending my balcony plants, for example. Making improv quilts. Turning pieces of paper into greeting cards, such as the ones with patterns on them that I drew at the calligraphy table at the adult craft night. I’m surprised at how many new ways I find to do old things now, in my old age.
I write thoughtful, heartfelt notes to family & friends.
Often I do pen drawings on the notes I send.
I collect art postcards, & place them all over my home, a little art museum of my own! 🙂
Taking photos and playing music, writing. I wish I had more free time to devote to these things.
