Blog marathon post 29. More cards and where to find creativity

Today was a great day in terms of my cards. Like i have said before, I make these cards, in between my writing. I find it an amazing way to de-stress. Today I sold six cards, and one of them was custom made, with a personalized quilled name of the future recipient. I feel wonderful about being appreciated for the cards I make.

Here are a few latest ones.



To see my full collection go here

People often ask me how can they find creativity and inspiration? My answer can be simplified into  a few points which I think are important for creativity and inspiration:

1. Do nothing!  Lie outdoors on the grass (if possible) for a while. Do nothing. Tune off every electonic device you own. Just lie there and gaze at the sky and observe your thoughts. Don't fight them--just observe them. You will be amazed at what you hear, when you listen to yourself!

2. Exercise. This stimulates the brain cells like anything, It wakes you out of lethargy. It';s a boost for your brain.

3. Do one thing which you have never done before. Stretch yourselves. At least once in three days do something you have never done before. It need not be grand. It can be something as simple as smiling at next door neighbour whom you have never spoken to. But do that one thing which will shake you up completely out  of the comfort zone you cocoon yourself in.

4: Dance: yes! Put on some music that is peppy and makes you want to dance. Then do it!

5. Look at new stuff in your line of Interest. See Pinterest,. Explore, discover, learn. Internet is an amazing resource, Use it right!

Hope the above things help! They sure help me!
