Being part of the Make28 creativity challenge, has made me focus on making something every day. And that's got me thinking about creativity and all its forms.

So I've been extra sensitive to information about creativity and of course, I start seeing it everywhere, or at least I start paying attention.

I thought I'd share a couple of videos with you. They've been making the rounds, but perhaps you haven't seen them yet.

This is from Atlanta based editorial photographer, Zack Arias:

And this is a TED talk by Elizabeth Gilbert:

I'll be posting more soon.

Make 28

One of my online friends, Consumatron, has started a "make something every day" challenge for February, called Make 28:

So watch the video for inspiration and then make something. Anything. And then send him a link to what you make. Go to and leave a link in the comments. Send him an email at consumatron at Or follow him on Twitter.

Here's a preview of what I've been making so far:

You can see more on Flickr.

So what are you going to make?

Whine of the Week

I've been unmotivated and even more prone to procrastination lately. I've been complaining about it and moping around and procrastinating even more. But of course I know what I need to do.

I guess it always goes back to fear - fear of failure - fear of looking stupid. I always let my perfectionist tendencies get the best of me. I want things to be right, and if something can't be perfect, then I tend not to do it at all.

Blah blah blah...

So I'm hoping that maybe posting about it will help snap me out of it!
