Episode 343 of the CMP, a Creativity Matters Podcast
In this episode of the CMP, thoughts on the idea of a “creative” (or “art-themed”) white elephant exchange and four vignettes from the days of December. These are simple quotidian moments…. a forgetful or absentminded coffee, a lost notebook, a notebook that is falling apart (in funny ways) despite bits and pieces of washi tape, and a daily knitalong (KAL) shawl project in rainbow colors that has given me a way to integrate some leftover bits from years (and gifts made and given) past. I evidently had trouble counting, on the spot…. I said over and over again that there are 5 colors in my set of rainbow “minis” (small skeins of yarn that are similar in concept to ink samples). But when I said the colors, you probably heard 6. There are six. Six colors.
I recorded in a hurry the morning of my mom’s arrival. Turned out her plane landed an hour early!
I hope you are enjoying your days of December, too. I’ll be working on “end of year reflection and planning” with the Facebook group — and hope to really be able to take a look at how my year went and how to make 2019 a year that moves some of my goals forward.
Thank you to those of you who listen to the Creativity Matters Podcast and who let me know that the show has meaning to you — or that you simply enjoy listening. There is so much doubt in this process, and every time I read online articles about different kinds of people and the reasons they share, I internalize…. I overthink…. I worry. Thank you to those of you who support this show. Your support and encouragement means a great deal.
