This is kind of following on from my last blog post where I talked about finding a new path for GW, (here) I want to talk a little bit about what I am doing to keep the creative fires burning not just because it’s fun but because for me it is a MUST for maintaining my sanity and sense of self. Though I’ve learned that it doesn’t always have to be physically making something, sometimes it could be as simple as reorganizing a shelf to display interesting objects. It isn’t some big thing that requires lots of effort, it’s actually about small things that build over time, almost without realising it that add up to a life creatively lived. So here are a few of the things that have kept me going creatively over the past few months and they are honestly all very easy things that anyone could do.
Well my good intentions of posting to my blog every week or two at the latest clearly haven’t been working out. I see so many people saying they feel bad about not managing to do it all and I’m the same if I’m honest. I think about how I’m not blogging probably once a day which is ridiculous as I should probably just sit for 10 minutes and share a few thoughts and pictures (I have oh so many). Today is about a quick little catch up with my online pals so let me pour you a virtual cuppa 😉
Well Spring has arrived (mostly) and we’ve just had a relaxing and fun week here. Brussels is full of the most beautiful pink blossom trees and the weather was unbelievably warm for a few days. I managed to make a good start on my container garden which I have no experience in but am very excited about nonetheless! As my own mission to live a more environmentally friendly and chemical-free life continues I constantly find new ideas for how I can do things better. So the idea of growing a few salad goodies and some herbs has big appeal… below is my tip for instant garden gratification 😉
