A Combo Meme


Thank you, gina for thinking me creative. Or kreativ. Whatever the case may be.

Coincidentally, a homeschool blog I read, The Heart of the Matter, is asking for tips on being creative. Here’s my tip.

Are you ready?
Listen closely.

Steal. And steal liberally.

In scrapping, there’s actually a name for this: ‘scraplifting’.

Every idea you have ever seen on here and thought, “oh that’s so creative”: that was someone else’s idea. What I’m good about is doing them.

A lot of people read magazines like Family Fun, or read a book like Totline, and think “there’s a good idea”, but never actually do the craft or activity.

Since I do, you think I’m creative.

But really, I just steal.

Here are a few of the ideas I stole from somewhere, and a few others more specific to “educational” (with a few repeats due to cross labeling!).

As a recipient of gina’s award, I had to list six things that make me happy.

I’m also supposed to name six other bloggers to pass the award on to, but I always hate that pressure, because I never want to leave anyone out, so I’m passing on that part.

If you’re reading this, award yourself. Seriously.

Makes me happy:

**MY FAMILY** all of them: Husband, my kiddles, siblings, nieces and nephews, parents and in-laws and my aunts and uncles and grandma. I love my family to pieces!
**MOPS**
**AUTUMN** fall comfort foods, rainy mornings, brilliant leaves, cider, hayrides, scarecrows, burgandy, Thanksgiving…love everything fall
**GOING FOR WALKS**especially if I can talk with someone while walking
**THE LIBRARY**
**KNOWING GOD LOVES ME JUST AS I AM, AND IS EAGER FOR ME TO BECOME MORE LIKE HIM**

Next Friday, join us at Heart of the Matter for a video blog, introducing yourself! Consider yourself notified, invited, and otherwise coerced…

I think it’s really fun to see how people sound.
I’ll be playing & I hope you will too.
