Positive Monday Quote

"Creativity is inventing, experimenting, growing, taking risks, breaking rules, making mistakes, and having fun.”
                                                                                                                                                                   — Mary Lou Cook

 When I think of all the lovely positive people on this team, I also think 'creativity' .  Mary Lou Cook has described us all as we invent, experiment, grow, take risks, break rules, make mistakes and have fun. I treasure our ability to share with one another - the joys and the sorrows of our lives and our creative journeys.

To me it is  a circle - start by playing with an idea - it is fun - play more and It is an invention, experiment a little more - maybe learning a new technique or using a new color or design thus growing in knowledge - risk doing more - break the rules that might hold you back - be willing to make a mistake in order to be free and have fun.

Wishing all positive creative fun...

  1. So true! Let us not be afraid to try new things with our businesses and allow ourselves to make's how you deal with mistakes that makes the difference :)

  2. Tis is so true and we have such a great team to share our new challenges with. In art school they always said to push things a bit further--to work outside the box. How true it is. Thank you for wharing

  3. So true! It is great to read this; to be able to let ourselves make mistakes- as long as we learn from them, that's what is important!! AND, there are always those things such as 'happy mistakes' remember, that turn into something wonderful and unexpected!!

  4. Some of my favourite work has come from something that didn't turn out quite as I thought it would! It's always worth keeping the "mistakes" and reviewing them later when you're no longer cross with yourself.
