"Creativity is inventing, experimenting, growing, taking risks, breaking rules, making mistakes, and having fun." – Mary Lou Cook
I really like this creativity quote. And to prove how much I like it, this is the second time I've posted it. By the time I had created the image above, I noticed another version in my file of art and creativity quotes. Oh well. It's a good one and worth a repeat. I have never claimed to have the best of memories.
- I just looked back over this weeks posts and noticed that there isn't a whole lot of kids' art. Sorry about that! There's plenty going on in our house—mostly in the form cutting and taping paper and string to create various things that I can't necessarily identify. (If you're looking for kids' art ideas, you'll find lots in my Arts & Crafts Directory!)
- I'm thinking about starting a second blog that would be part craft blog and part an exploration of grown-up creativity (mine and yours). Partly so I can focus on kids' art here on The Artful Parent and still have a place to write about the other stuff.
- If you were waiting to see if you won the Rainy Day Play giveaway before ordering a Halloween costume or kids' dress-up clothes, maybe head over and revisit your wish list.
- Thanks for all the comments, questions, likes, and shares about our artful autumn tree, both here and on my facebook page. The tutorial is in my autumn crafts book, but it's easy enough to make
—we used brown contractor's paper, black masking tape, and painted paper leaves. Simply cut the paper into a trunk and tape it up. Cut some branches and tape them up. And continue until you have a tree you like. You could even add real autumn leaves (like these, maybe) rather than painted paper ones.
Happy friday and happy weekend!!
