Stay Creative:
Woe is me. It has been so long... So long that I had to guess my password. So long that I forgot the fonts I consistently used. So long I mistook the 'attach link' icon for the 'attach image' icon. How embarrassing.
So I thought it best to start off my somewhat late new years resolution of respecting my blog with something that inspired me once upon a time. That is '33 ways to stay creative'! In hindsight I should have printed this out and stuck it somewhere prominent where I would see it everyday. Then perhaps I wouldn't have become a no blogging loser. Fear not, this will all change, it will all change NOW!

Each point on it's own wouldn't really encourage creativity. You have to read it all together. The process of reading this list is very inspirational. A truly creative person should be doing all of these things. When I look at this list I see potential. I think this list believes in me. I like that it reminds you to drink tea, don't give up, allow yourself to make mistakes, have fun and get lots of rest. This list is a bit like you mum, even telling you to clean your workspace. In all if you did all these things greatness will happen. But perhaps the most important - finish something. An accomplishment leads to tremendous satisfaction.

Here are a few pics of things that inspire me. Apologies for the inability to source these images, I'm aware this is bad form but it's been so long I forgot where I found them. As this blog is ad free, it's safe to say no one's making any money and I take no credit for the images I am about to attach. Here we go!

Amazingly creative couple! Miranda July & Mike Mills = Wow

Just funny. Alfred's a grumpy hot water bottle. Haha.

More creative inspiration by Jim Jarmusch. It's the cold hard truth.

Simply too cute. Great illustration style also.

All the world needs now is love, sweet love. Not to mention super cool love.

I just thought this was pretty cool. I heart repetition and bold colour.

Last but not least, I think you're awesome, if you're out there. Go do something creative.
Until next time!
