to be or not to be creative..

in my last post i told you i found an article that spoke about creativity and that i was sure i'd find it.
i done founded it lol!

click here to read it..(a new window will open) the article is by the harvard business review.
i don't think i've ever read the site or even heard of it. but thanks to an app called zite on my ipad i found it. (btw, i recommend zite to those that have iphones/ipads, it's basically a personalized magazine that gets smarter as you use it.)

back to the article - here's a paragraph that made me ponder..
The bad news is that if you don't think you're creative, our survey data say that you probably are not. But there is good news: You can actually become more creative by changing your mind-set. Anyone can innovate, if they choose to. Disruptive innovators do it by choice, not chance. Their everyday actions swap out an "I'm not creative" mind-set for an "I am creative" one. And then magical (not mystical) things unfold.
reminds me of something i heard once - put positive thoughts out to the universe so that the universe will help you achieve it some way or another. i'm not sure if that's true or not, but it seems to work for certain people..and i can't lie, i've tried it and then received positive results. kinda like that book that received so much hype a couple years ago - the secret.

i'm not sure if that's why i've been creative lately or not...but i'm loving what's happening in my brain. :]

a good friend of mine recently relocated to chicago due to her husband's employment. she's also pregnant with her first baby, a baby girl! since i'm being all creative and what not, i thought maybe she could be as well on her down time. documenting how her pregnancy is coming along and then the adventure of having her new baby, valentina, in her & her husband's life would be awesome to see and show the baby in the future. so i sent her a couple of goodies so she could get started. i made sure to send her the SMASH book, baby style that's very cute and sweet! can't wait to see what she makes in it!

scrap stuffs for kerry :]
i'm currently on day four of my sickies. i think i have a mini cold/flu?! but it's going away thankfully! meds do a body good haha! :]
happy memorial day weekend, don't forget to thank those that have made this possible for us all!

..till next time ;]
