I originally planned on providing some creative tips for everyday living in this post but what do you know, some everyday creative living of my own got in the way!
Yesterday we spent a good part of our day unpacking boxes and generally getting settled into the new house. We creatively decided to keep our beautiful new side by side refrigerator (anyone who ever saw our old one, circa 1960, will understand our quick formed attachment to our new one) and get a smaller dishwasher to accommodate the tight fit in one corner of the kitchen. We're adding an island in a little while which will help add functional space to the room and give us everything we want in our new space.
We also took a little break to work on our Creative Prompt project and came up with these fabulous fairy wands.
I saw the following link while surfing around and while I can find no particular context in which to frame it, I thought it was fun and figured I'd share it anyway:
100 creative ideas for customizing & recycling your old t-shirts by Andy over at Hide Your Arms
Once again, one week isn't nearly enough to explore this virtue. I feel the inquiry boosted creativity but I remain wistful when considering all the options I left untried! I rate myself 6 out of a possible 10 for this week.
Jaye forwarded the following to me and I thought it was a nice final thought for creativity week. Follow the links for more everyday inspiration!

A creative life is filled with challenges and rewards, puzzles and curiosities. This ongoing series of poems attempts to express the “Aha’s” and “What ifs”, the deep ponderings and casual observations of an inquiring mind trying to make sense of reality. May it serve, for you, as a bit of “Everyday Inspiration” along your own creative path.
for the las
fig. The leaves
while I was away—
and the seasons
One last almost-ripe fruit
to the branch—
the last warm day
I knock them
to the ground.
One last bloom
on the Rudy Rose.
Summer resists leaving
and so do I.
