“There is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique. 
And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium 
and it will be lost.”  — Martha Graham
“Creativity is inventing, experimenting, growing, taking risks, breaking rules, 
making mistakes, and having fun.” — Mary Lou Cook
 The key question isn’t “What fosters creativity?” But it is "Why in God’s name isn’t everyone creative? Where was the human potential lost? How was it crippled?" I think therefore a good question might be not "Why do people create?" But "Why do people not create or innovate?" We have got to abandon that sense of amazement in the face of creativity, as if it were a miracle if anybody created anything. — Abraham Maslow
“If you hear a voice within you say, ‘You cannot paint,’ then by all means paint, 
and that voice will be silenced.” — Vincent van Gogh
 We went to Taste of Arts this afternoon.
I had fun trying my hand at hat-making
(with a little help from friends).
Newspaper, masking tape, scotch tape and tissue paper
are MAGIC!

Nobody is bored when he is trying to make something that is beautiful, 
or to discover something that is true.  - William Inge

“Creativity is contagious. Pass it on.” - Albert Einstein


  1. Love the quote by William Inge. Boredom is really a lack of creativity

  2. Great fun...Martha Graham, studied her as a dance major in college. Yea for being creative...we have a Father who is the Author of being creative

  3. Love the quotes and fun pictures. The hat
    is great! You look so cute! I love being
    creative and consider a day not well spent
    if I haven't engaged myself in something
    creative. Love what sweet Janette said.
    We certainly do have a Father who is the
    Author of being creative!

  4. Wonderful pics . . . and a creative hat, indeed! What fun that must have been! I think we adults often seem to think we're "too old" for that kind of fun, and we miss so much. Thanks for sharing!

  5. Rebecca,

    I love that! I will have to try doing this with my kids!


  6. How FUN! Except newspapers make me sneeze.
    (I very much dislike the word bored.)
    Just look at you long as you have a newspaper, you will always have something to do!
    I wonder if Van Gogh meant to paint, WALLS?

  7. This is fabulous! I love the quotes that you used with the photos. They are terrific... as is your chapeau!!

    Blessings, Debbie

    I loved the quotes you shared, as well as the pictures you posted.

    I also scrolled down to read back a few of the posts I have missed.

    The new look of your blog is beautiful.

    Blessings on your Sunday!


  10. Amazing! Love the hat. You found some good creativity quotes that I've not read before. And I love the blog's new clothes.

  11. You had a lot more fun than I did this weekend! (since I was sick :( Good for you! Your backgrounds are beautiful! You're getting pretty techy there lady! This activity is getting my mind spinning with ideas...

  12. I love this Rebecca! Just read it for the first time today but it is so fitting with my latest blog post!!:) Have a lovely, creative day!

  13. Ahhhh, creativity! I love to be creative. I fill my days with creative pursuits and feel rather incomplete by going too many days without working on something! I think creativity is just one more evidence of the stamp of our God's hand when He created us--we are created in His image--He's creative!

  14. If the Creator lives within us, then surely He will spark creative impulses in us! I love to create new things, or to enjoy things that others create. Charming hat your designed there!

  15. Love it! Fits in perfectly with my post on "helping to solve the problem of pain." I think you might have a new career in hat making!
