On Creativity

I share my secrets.  Yup, you heard it here first.  I absolutely love telling people how I did something or where I bought something or what I am thinking about doing next.

 I love this acrylic painted succulent as a new twist on the green plants!

Often, I have mini discussions with my husband, Will Willis, about maybe not sharing so much, or maybe not putting an original idea on social media for all to see and *gasp* "steal."  In the end, I do it anyway.

 Will Willis and me:)

Why?? Because I am a creative person.  And if you have ever taken an art history class, you know there is no such thing as an original idea anyway (See Postmodernism).  

I have just decided to trust people to be "good" and hopefully give me credit if I have inspired them in some way.

 I used   Design Master   Rose Gold to spray the branches before the blossoms developed. LOVE this!

Also, for me, it is a way of clearing out the old and making room for new.  I want to keep evolving!

It is my opinion that the people who don't want to share are probably not truly creative and worried that they will never have a good idea again, and (again IMO) this is no way to live!

You only have one life, so be free, be generous and be creative!
