Non-Knitting Creativity (Gasp!)

I have been spending an inordinate amount of my limited creative time playing on Flickr. There are so many sources of entertainment, inspiration, introspection, and creative exploration available here.

The 365 Days project is a great way to force myself to take a pause and enjoy each day for what it is. Life is so busy busy busy that I feel like I sometimes can’t distinguish one day from another. Most days are quite ordinary, but ordinary does not have to be meaningless. This week was a good one to start on this project as Mr. Hipp has been out of town (returning today! yay!) and I’ve had a lot of time to myself. There are may 365 Days groups on Flickr. I chose to join the one for knitterly and crafty types because it has (relatively) few members and – duh – is crafty.

The Game is something I saw on my buddy Monique’s blog. The Flickr search is such a mystery…you never know what will pop up.
