What are you creative about? And what do you feel or do when you don't create anything you're satisfied with?--Al

Y'know, I am really quite creative in most things I do. Usually that's a good thing, sometimes it's not, like driving for instance, just kidding. I like to write, I scrapbook, I love to create projects with my kids or make the usual unusual, just for fun. Sometime when I am not satisfied with my creation I keep it to myself, much of that involves my writing, but things like my scrapbooks, I just learn to deal with it, or try to make some improvement in someway. I rarely abandon a project completely, but it might take the back burner for awhile and the answer (or direction) come to me at another time.

Well, I'm creative to some extent in my writing. Though, I don't know if I'd exactally call that creative, more honest than creative.. so scratch that. I'd say I'm creative in my future plans. So many things I want to do. I know, everyone says that right? And not too many acutally go through with half of the things they hoped to do. I really plan on doing them though, if they are the last thing I ever do, I will live out my dreams.

Heartfelt, isn't it?

I'm creative in that I write short stories and poetry. But what I hope that I'm most creative in is in my teaching and play therapy with my special needs preschoolers. Learning should be creative, inspiring and fun. I teach attributes with farm animals, pronouns while playing dolls, etc. It's more difficult to teach older kids creatively but I think it can still be done. I'm all in favor of the "Project Classroom" where they learn fractions by cooking,english by writing poetry and plays, etc. The traditional classroom atmosphere bored me to tears, if memory serves.

I think this is pretty creative - Whenever I get flowers or even pick one for myself, I like to press them in a beautifully simple frame so I'll have them forever. If you get a dozen roses it's hard to fit them all into one even large frame so dismember each rose and take a piece from each one and put it in the frame. They make beautiful wall hangings, and it's a simple yet creative (and fun)way to decorate. Use your imagination. I get nice, plain wooden frames from Wal-Mart from $5 and up. Cheap and easy!
