the creativity club challenge on elsie marley

1. stop knocking yourself out 2. why not just start 3. just because you are good at being busy does not mean that being busy is good 4. the hard way is the easy way

Amazing submissions this month for the creativity club challenge: inspire yourself. I picked a few of my favorites, but I urge you to go see them all. They can be found under the hashtag  #thecreativityclub. If you’re not on instagram, you can see all the tagged photos on the elsie marley facebook page (in the instagram app on the right).

1. let out the noise 2. the internet is ruining my creativity 3. what if something amazing happened today? 4. sarcasm is my superpower (no really…I mean it) 

And here is my submission. I wanted to say something about how I always get in my own damn way; how I stop myself from doing things; how I get caught up in analyzing things until the moment has passed; how I can’t move forward. I thought this summed it up in a round about way:

Because if art were a beautiful chocolate cake with vanilla frosting, I would eat the hell out of it.

      I think it probably didn’t show up because you’re instagram account is private? Thanks for sending me the link. I love the tape idea!

  2. Love your quote and cake! Fun seeing my own entry in your round up. Looking forward to the next challenge!

    I loved this assignment! And, these quotes take the ‘cake’ (ha! Did you catch that?). I mean, seriously, we are damn inspiring! This was great fun, Meg! Can’t wait for Tuesdays homework.

  4. I was all set to do this tonight, then my kids took 3 hours to go to bed, so I thought fuck it and had a glass of wine instead!! FML
