30 Days of Creativity: Cityscape, Part 2

Day 27

I finished it!

30 Days of Creativity: Cityscape Painting (Part 1)

Day 26

This is only Part 1 of what I hope is going to be a fabulous project.

30 Days of Creativity: Pear Labels

Day 25

I've had some storage baskets on my kitchen shelves for a long time, and I wanted to label them somehow.  

30 Days of Creativity: Solution to a Common Problem

Day 24

I have a little hunch about something.  I think I might be the only person in my household who changes the toilet paper roll.  Does anyone else feel that way?  With two young children, I'm starting to get the hang of this "positive reinforcement" thing.  So I wondered if it might work on another adult.  What if there was a prize for replacing the roll?

30 Days of Creativity: Panoramic Stairwell Picture

Day 23

Nothing fancy here.  Just a trying out the panoramic feature in our stairwell, which happens to be covered with board games.  

30 Days of Creativity: Birthday Cake

Day 22

This was Boo's 4th birthday, so of course I had to throw together some kind of cake for him.  I debated over getting any old box mix and then just keeping it away from Punky, but it's nice when she gets to eat the same things the rest of us are having.  

30 Days of Creativity: Crunchy Chicken Strips

Day 21

Both kids eat chicken now, which is pretty awesome.  But I feel like they get tired of the same thing all the time, so this was my way of making it interesting.

30 Days of Creativity: Headphone Fix

Day 20

Boo is doing something in his OT sessions called Theraputic Listening.  I'm planning to blog more about that later.

30 Days of Creativity: Coffee Bag Decoration

Day 19

I needed something quick and easy.  I decided to decorate the bag of ground coffee I picked up at the local coffee shop.

30 Days of Creativity: Fun with Books

Day 15: 
This idea came to me this morning while I was staring at our book shelves.  Suddenly I started putting them into interesting groups and playing around with the titles.

30 Days of Creativity: Fizzy juice drink

Day 14:
We're trying to give up drinking soda, because of the sugar (if it's regular) and the artificial sweeteners (if it's diet).  But I love the fizz, so I've been drinking a lot of bubbly water lately.  Here's one of my attempts to make it a little more interesting.

30 Days of Creativity: Playlist

Day 13:
This is a little playlist I made up to listen to on Saturdays when I clean the house.

30 Days of Creativity: Stretchy headband

Day 12:  Are you detecting a headband theme?  It's just that I've had ideas for making some of my own headbands for quite a while and now I'm finally making myself do it.  

30 Days of Creativity: Draper by Numbers

I finally found the time and the inspiration I needed to complete some real artwork.

30 Days of Creativity: Trying Polyvore

I'm not sure this counts as creativity, especially since the outfit I put together is literally what I wore yesterday.  Except for the flower thing that came with the template.  But since it almost matches the nail polish, maybe I should look into getting something like that for my hair?

30 Days of Creativity: Days 5-9

This week has been awful.  The Mister had to travel to Peoria overnight, I missed a lot of sleep, I didn't get a parenting break, and it was almost impossible to get anything done above and beyond my daily "chores".  I wish I could say I was taking a break from some of my usual tasks in order to have more time for creative pursuits, but it just can't be done.  I mean, miss one day of scooping the litter box, or feeding the kids?  I don't think so.

My 30 Days of Creativity Kick-Off: Days 1-4

Last year, during the 30 Days of Creativity, I got a ton of things done.  I used it as a good excuse to finally get going on those "someday" projects around the house.  This time around, I'm keeping it small because there just isn't time.  Here's what I have so far.
