How many of you do more than one art or craft form? Â I do--sometimes I have to rein myself in, because I could easily get seduced by every need-to-buy-new-supplies craft that comes along.
This week, I'd like to examine the ways our various creative activities inform each other. Â I'm interested in finding out if perhaps we can purposefully choose activities that give a boost to each other--not just the expected creative pairs like painting and drawing or writing fiction and writing memoir. Â I'm interested in more obscure, less expected pairings.
Make a list of your creative pursuits. Make sure you include things like dancing, cooking, gardening--anything you do that may fall outside the typical things we think of when we think about creativity. Â Then examine ways these activities might influence each other. Â Look for the subtle, maybe even subconscious ways this happens, and also consider ways you might purposefully help these connections to occur.
Have fun with this. Â Consider it a chance to play with all your creative loves. Â Let me know what you discover about how your creative activities play together.
