The last couple of days have been busy, the typical business of a mom with two kids I guess. End of year pool parties and summer camps and such. I definitely feel my energy waning and my feet are indeed starting to swell as I had predicted. I went swimming yesterday, on the advice of Maegan, and it did indeed help with the swelling though. If you follow me on Instagram (fourflights), you may have seen my bikini belly shot ;) I don’t know how much I’ll be able to get accomplished these next few weeks, but at the same time, I hope I can let myself relax a little and just enjoy, without feeling the need to come up with a new DIY for you guys every week. We’ll see. For now I’m just going to look forward to a good weekend spent with some of my favorite people.
As we head into the weekend I wanted to share with you a mini article I found in this month’s Allure, about creativity. Point #2 really stuck with me because for the longest time I have brushed off any notion that I am creative at all because I always linked creativity with artistic talent. I can’t draw a straight line to save my life and my 7 year old daughter can now draw a pony better than I can. But hearing it said that being creative is more about being open minded and it can be something as simple as changing up a recipe finally connected the dots for me! So I guess now when someone says “you’re so creative”, I can hopefully take the compliment and say thanks instead of my standard, “No, I’m not!”.
So do you guys have any methods or practices to help you be a bit more creative? Do you consider yourself a creative person at all? Speaking of creativity, I’m about to head out to meet up with a good friend I met through blogging, Jules. We’re getting the kids together to play and while they play we’re going to brainstorm and try to be a bit creative ourselves. Hopefully we’ll feed off of each other. Any fun plans for the weekend?
