Ty's Take

Ty’s Take | Get Creative

Hope you had a nice weekend but it’s Monday, which means it’s time to get down to business folks.

This week, I’m challenging you to get your hands dirty. No, not cleaning or organizing, this week it’s about creativity.

Take the time this week to take on a creative project. It’s one of my personal favorite things to do- and you really can’t go wrong. Don’t worry about the end result, it’s about the process here.

Here are some ideas:



I suggest going abstract if you’re a beginner. Geometric shapes a are a cool way to get started.



Hey, who said snow and sand don’t count? Creativity is creativity.



A lot of my design ideas and fabric concepts come from doodles. I’ve also framed some of my own sketches in my home before- any art looks good when you frame it.



It’s no secret that I think quilts are pretty cool.



If you don’t consider yourself particularly creative this is a good place to start. Make a collage of colors, places and things that inspire you.

Capture it in a picture


The best photographs make you see something in a new light. Consider a beautiful thing you see daily and try and capture it in a photo.



Not going to claim to have experience in this one, but I’ve been told it’s a relaxing way to get creative- test out this claim.

Good luck people!

And I want to know how it goes, so comment about your getting creative below.
