December Daily

It's that time of year again! Time to start picking out what to use on your December Daily. Ali posted her mini today, and has lots more info on her blog about the Daily if you are interested in learning more about the project. Here is a link to today's post. There are also links in her post today to past years for even more information.

Tonight, I am planning on finishing up last years album (I love the album, but have a really hard time completing it in December). I always write down what is going on and any important details I want to remember as the month goes on, so that I don't have to worry about trying to remember it all. I like taking my time with it, and finishing it up always gets me in the mood to begin the new one!

Hope you will join me this year in making a December Daily! I hope to be back later with a more crafty and picturesque post! :)

What’s your creative style?

I took a quiz today, that I found on my friend Steph's blog. I think it's quite true about me! Feel free to go to her blog to get the link to the quiz and take it for yourself! I would love to hear what your Creative Style is! :) Have a great Wednesday!

Creativity is a release
For you, creativity is first and foremost a form of expression: it creates a special link between the internal and external worlds. It allows you to get a grasp of your powerful emotions, by moulding them into a physical form. In fact, the most important thing for you is to be able to release your emotions. You need to be able to touch them or look at them in concrete form, and to do that you have to find a way to make them come alive. This is how your desires and anxieties take shape. Keeping things bottled up creates a tension that can only be resolved once you have expressed how you feel. This means you have to be strong enough not to let yourself get swept away by chaotic impulses; if you turn your creative urges on everyday life — making a picnic, singing to the baby, choosing what to wear — you can express yourself while staying rooted in reality. Creativity is principally cathartic. It relieves a deep need, an almost primal, archaic impulse. For you, being creative is about having the power to give form to something you feel, to those deep personal issues that are often raw and disorganised. For these reasons you are usually attracted to art that demands physicality, that allows you to express what’s inside, and that unites spontaneity, strength, freedom, power and movement.
