366 Days of Creativity Week 25 in Review: June 17th - June 23rd
I was reminded today about Elizabeth Gilbert's book Big Magic (see my LEGO® creation thoughts on instagram for how). Her book is actually one of the reasons I started this 366 project. She talks about ideas leaving you if you don't commit to them. I have ideas for building with bricks helping people. I also wasn't ready to jump into full action on those ideas this year. But I didn't want the ideas to leave me, so this 366 project came to me and I say yes. Because it keeps me in the LEGO® zone and shows I am committed. And it's taking me to places I never expected to be - hello BrickFest and soon to be BrickFiesta. And I can't wait to really let my ideas come to fruition, hopefully next year, and be surprised where they take me then.

I never could have predicted the creation I would make on Day 168. Never. It's just not me or my style.
The path was paved by my word of the year - "Magic." Since it's my word of the year I pay attention when I see or hear it.
366 Days of Creativity Week 23 in Review: June 3rd - June 9th
I've had a lot of quotes recently about not waiting for inspiration.
This is true. I've said before sometimes I have an idea of what to build after reading the art quote, but most of the time I just start building and then an idea will come. Then I rework the creation.
I've discovered recently in life that knowing how inspiration and creativity work together has been very helpful.
