As I said before, I've become a little obsessed over Pinterest. Its not necessarily a "time waster" because its an idea trove, and in general the creative process takes time. Cultivating creativity isn't as simple as waving a wand. Rather it requires tender loving care, sunshine, unpleasant climate and time. (Unpleasant climate because if I have to stay inside, I have to get creative)
Because of pinterest, I've been busy trying out new things. One of my most recent projects was the snowman fridge. I saw a picture of it on pinterest and FELL IN LOVE. So I decided to try it out on the preschool mini-fridge first. I was so proud of it, I had Kyle make his way over to gawk and applaud me. Because my husband is very creative, I asked for his input. "A hat, he needs a hat." he said, and went to work making him a top hat.
We then took the idea to our own home. Everytime I walk into the room, I'm surprised. Truly, I yelp with delight. We don't have a tree this year, but this snowman makes up for it. He seriously makes my day every time I see him. I want to do this at other times of year with other animals. Wouldn't that be fun? Or is it just me?
