Find Your Creative Sweet Spot


I have always placed a high value on creative expression in it’s many forms. Sometimes I think people take the word creativity too literally. When I say express yourself creatively some people respond with “oh, I can’t draw”. My heart sinks when I hear this. I know how satisfying it is to be able to express yourself, your personality, and your values through creative expression.

I’ve gathered a few of my favorite tutorials from Creative Bug to share with all of my “I’m not creative” friends. I believe everyone is creative and can find joy in making. You can sign up for a free trial and complete some of these classes to find out if you like Creative Bug as much as I do. While affiliate links are included, I’m a member and use Creative Bug regularly. I never recommend anything I don’t use myself!

  1. Living a More Creative Life: 30 Ways in 30 Days

  1. This class is perfect for you if you want a “creative sampler” and aren’t sure where you find your creative magic.

3. Paper Flowers with Livia Cetti

It’s no mystery that I love flowers…. they’re a central design motif in most of my work. I have recently been introduced to the world of paper flowers and how exquisite they can be. In this class you’ll dye your own tissue and craft a bouquet of paper anemones. You’ll even learn how to arrange your paper flowers when they’re done. Not a fan of anemones? Well Livia has a handful of classes on Creative Bug with other varieties of flowers.
