    Art = Happy

    "Never imagine yourself not to be otherwise
    than what it might appear to others
    that what you were or might have been
    was not otherwise then what you had been
    would have appeared to them
    to be otherwise."
    ~Lewis Carroll

    It took me many years to see that if spend time on art|creativity every day I am happier. And isn't that the idea? Because if I'm happier everthing else goes more smoothly. I invite you to think about the value that creativity brings to your life. Are you happier when you draw, knit, write, create stuff? Please join me in spreading the word that doing art makes for a happier life. Each month, you can take the Creative Experiments Challenge to add more creativity into your days. Pop over to the creative experiments for the current month and get rolling!

    Oh, how true! I have been away from creating for awhile and finding it very difficult to get back in the groove....even though I am not happy when I don't do art.

    Thank you for the badge....I'll proudly display it on my blog.

    I so agree. Art = happy. Thanks for these badges. I grabbed one and will post it on my blog.

    Eden, So funny that you asked about a yellow badge, as I spent quite a bit of time TRYING to make a yellow badge but for reasons unknown to me, the Photoshop gods will not allow it. Learning curve.... ~ Tammy

    I am so so so bad at these challenge things, but I am hoping to give this one a shot. January may be messy for me because we are moving from Florida to Alaska, so not much art will happen, I'm afraid. But I will try. Thanks for the inspiration!

    All: I've added two new badges in rainbow colors ~ making badges is helping me learn Photoshop! ~ Tammy

    Ok Tammy, now you've done it! You really have! I thought it would be
    so easy for me to pick my badge, I'd just go grab the YELLOW,
    but now you've made me decide!

    I guess it'll be an eeny-meeny-miney moo decision!
    These are uber cool :D :D

    Very exciting. Great challenges - make me accountable and give me reason to do what I want to do!
    Still working out kinks to get my yellow badge on my blog. Creativity -yes Technology-not so much!!
