A Time to be Creative

Writers, artists, and bloggers have to have their creative caps firmly glued to their heads all year round. However, it’s at this time of year that our resourcefulness is really put to the test. I believe in living green and reusing/recycling whatever I can. Cards and scrapbooks are no exception. I like the personal touch of fashioning cards, wrapping paper and presents, and have taught my children to do the same too. My eight year old daughter has opted to make 20 cards this year even though she realises there is an easier option of using ones bought from the store.

I found a store online that’s a pot of gold when it comes to creating your own cards and scrapbooking embellishments They cater for a wide range of artistic designs, embellishments, stickers, glue, jewels, paints and templates. I think no matter the time of year, making a scrapbook/cards couldn’t be easier.

So, if you're taking a break from blogging or writing during the holidays, there are other inspired ways to spend time with your family. Of course you'll still be giving way to your artistic side, but you'll be fullfilling your desire and obligation of sharing precious moments with the people you love.

I think scrapbook is creative and clever ways to put that personal touch on things, but I haven't try it yet..

I like how that sounds. Be creative and initiate something different should be a fantastic plan in this holiday season. Your daughter is a smart one! I would support her effort whole heartedly! If I could I would do the same someday.

Yes, Icy and Ching Ya. Not only is it creative, but it tells the recepient of the card/gift that you've spent time personalising it just for them.
