Chapter 34 – Your Wild Imagination – page 186

Hi girls! I love this chapter in Designer Genes! (By the way, if you are visiting this blog and don’t know what book we’re talking about, check out the links on the left of this page.)

I want to encourage all of you to use your creativity in some way this weekend. Remember, as this chapter points out, being creative doesn’t just mean drawing a great picture, composing a beautiful song, or writing a nice poem. It means using your imagination in your own special way to do something new and different.

Be sure to try some of the suggestions listed under “Try Something New” on page 186. It’ll be fun! 😀

And please write to me (designergenes@annhovsepian.com) and let me know how you’ve been creative this week. One of my favourite things is to discover how other people are creative. In fact, whenever I have time to surf the Net, I’m usually checking out the blogs or Web sites of people who do crafts, who recycle things in cool ways, or who think up just really neat things! Their creativity sparks my own imagination and encourages me to try new things.
