The Creative Every Day Challenge

Happy New Year!
As you can see Tea and Toast has had a makeover for 2010 and I hope you like it.  There are a number of new things I want to take up this year and one of them has been to sign up for the Creative Every Day challenge 
What I like about this is the following, taken straight from the website and gives inspiration, motivation and a little nudge to at least notice what we are creating as we go about our everyday tasks and roles.
If you'd like to join in, it's not too late as you can join at any time - there is real flexibility which I love.
I'll let you know how I get on and will post some of the creative things that happen around here as a result.

Here's to a creative 2010!!
And here is what Leah Piken Kolidas says:

"Creativity is meant in the broadest sense, so it doesn't have to be something art related. Your creative acts could be in cooking, taking pictures, knitting, doodling, writing, dancing, decorating, singing, playing with your kids, brainstorming ideas, gardening, or making art in the form of collage, paint, or clay...or whatever!
You do not have to post every day! I know for myself that having to post every day for a year would be too much. You can post about your creativity in whatever form you like, whether that be once a day, a few times a week, once a week, or once a month. Do what works for you!
This is a low pressure challenge, with the idea of bringing more creativity into our lives. I will not be the creativity police. I hope that we can all find ways, simple and grand to express our creative selves. Have fun with it!" from
