www…staying creative [and cheering up when feeling blue]

I have a piece of paper in my office that lists 29 ways to stay creative [don’t ask how I got it ’cause I can barely remember anything these days]. I had forgotten I had it pinned [actually pinned not on Pinterest] on my inspiration board and yesterday I discovered it yet again, so I’ll be sharing it with you guys and hopefully you’ll try some of the things in the list. Who knows, maybe you’ll get a feature for your blog out of this. Here we go:

1. Make lists [I love me some list-making!]
