In case you occasionally run into the same problem, I dug up some resources that I hope might spark your creativity.
These are on a variety of topics within the creativity category. There are examples of art journaling, painting, socks (if you can imagine), jewelry and baking. Obviously, there are thousands of other areas that could be placed under the creativity umbrella, but this will get you started. I hope you find something inspiring.

Do you listen to podcasts? I like to listen to them when I'm cleaning or ironing especially so that neither of those tasks seem quite as hideous. These were found through itunes. My absolute favourite is Tranquility du Jour but I do enjoy the others as well.

There are far too many awesome books on creativity to mention even a small number of them so I'll just list below the ones that I have personally read and enjoyed.
|Hip Tranquil Chick by Kimberly Wilson|
|The Artist's Way by Julia Cameron|
|Bird by Bird by Anne Lamott|
|Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway by Susan Jeffers|
Obviously, these are just meant to get you started. I would love to hear if you have favourite websites, podcasts or books that help to stoke your creative fires, so please do share in comments.
