Have you ever noticed that your mood can change for the better when you have fresh, new ideas?
One of the best ways to get your creative ideas flowing is to take a stroll through an Arts & Craft Show on a sunny day. Now I’m not suggesting you stop at each booth and purchase a little something. That would not help! What I am suggesting is that you stop and really take a close look at the things that make you say “WOW!” Let’s call it “Art Appreciation Day.”
After you’ve enjoyed some art, stop for a frozen lemonade or roasted almonds. Treat yourself! Think about all the beauty you have just seen and how you might incorporate some of that into your own home. Maybe you noticed the same beautiful color over and over again. Then, paint something that you already have that color. Just because a certain color scheme is in style, doesn’t mean it will work best in your home.
Maybe, you think you would like to try working with clay or painting ceramics. Trying something new has been proven to make people happier. Just be sure to start on a small scale and not overwhelm yourself with 5 new projects at once.
Little things can make a big difference, you just need to stop and figure out what YOU like first! Taking the time to discover and enjoy new things will help you to know what works in your life.
