I was inspired by the "Creativity Series-Just Do It" by Holly in the Decor8blog. The series is a 10-week column to inspire creativity with a tip every Thursday.
Tip #1: Create a mind map exploring the topic of childhood creativity starting with "What I loved to do as a kid" in the middle.
I immediately connected with this topic and was surprised to find how many things I remembered and the great associations I had with childhood. Most of my favorite things were some sort of make-believe playing, physical playing or simple wandering/exploring. I'm hoping to find that some others have posted their mind maps, as well. I wouldn't be surprised to find these favorites among others mind map of this topic. Although, I don't expect to find "letting daddy long legs crawl on your arms" be a common favorite!
I'm looking forward to this series and having some fresh ideas for feeling creative.

Doodle girls + one monkey sewn by my oldest daughter and myself. These are great to make out of scraps from other projects. We also added fabric covered buttons and roughly sewn in fabric and ribbons to embellish them. You can buy your own finished doll or pdf pattern at Bit of Whimsy Prims. So adorable and lovable!
