Putting Creativity to work

Dear Fellow Journalers,

It took me several days to organize all the items I needed to make Anniversary cards (the first category). Opening my Creativity Journal, I started listing all the resources (die cuts, embossing folders, rubber stamps, craft magazines, Pinterest boards, Sizzix and Spellbinders newsletters, Facebook Groups saved messages, and card sketches.)

I only needed to make 6 cards and I had a dozen ideas for twice that many! Finally I chose the ideas that best suited the dies/stamps/papers I had on hand. I took the first idea and sketched it on a blank page. I took a scrap of each paper and glued it with the sketch. Then armed with all my ideas I set to work. Half way through the creative process, I had to stop for a family commitment. Several days went by and I had time to craft again and discovered that I’d lost my enthusiasm. Gee Whiz! – Just when I had everything all together! Back to my journal I went. I’d come across a quote from Walt Disney that is suitable for Word Ghosts: ” If you can dream it, you can do it.” My finished cards, complete with sentiments and hallmarks came out pretty awesome My consultant panel agreed.

What did I learn? You can have all the intentions in the world, all the supplies, but if you don’t have a plan and a way of executing your dream nothing will ever be accomplished. (I think I just wrote a Ghost Word!)

‘Til next time,
