    Creativity Queue Challenge: Day No. 3

    It's Day No. Three (3)!

    It's time to find something creative that you have been wanting to try, wanting to finish, wanting to start. This is not the challenge for dreaming up a new project. There are new projects at every turn! Let's go back to basics and work on things we've been thinking about, maybe something peeking out from a corner of your closet or piled on a table.

    Here's the item I worked from my own creative queue... getting more comfy and playing with the 85mm lens I got several months ago. After almost 3 years of using my 50mm f/1.8 prime almost all the time, I almost don't know what to do with the new one! I wanted a macro lens, to get closer and more details, but I don't think that's what I got. I am happy with the shots, I just don't know if I will use it as much as I had hoped.

    If you haven't yet read the introduction, please pop over and we'll wait for you to get back! The Creativity Queue Challenge Hostesses for Day No. 3 are Barbara from Reptitude and Lorinda of Everyday Endeavors. These lovelies will be introducing you to something on their own creative radar today and making progress in our illustrious, action-packed, glamour-filled 8 [non-consecutive] days of creativity.

    So excited to be a part of the fun Tammy! And am getting to/through all sorts of things!

    {Tammy}: Lorinda, You are definitely rocking along. Push, push, that's all we need sometimes!

    Last night I posted a video that my daughter has made on my website. She's 12 and this is the third stop animation video she's made. She did this one all this past Sunday when a family friend was visiting. She's also keeping a daily journal full of visual images from her day (or imagination). I love that she's not trying to copy anyone and is developing her own voice to express what she wants to express. To me, that's what creativity is all about.

    {Tammy}: I hope that everyone watches your daughter's video. It's a wonderful example of what kids can do when they have the freedom, time and space to create independently.

    Thank you for this challenge and letting me host! It came at a good time, and it is doing double duty: helped me get going on a neglected project, AND helped me share it. Both can be hard to do sometimes, especially when we are trying something new. Barbara ;) #just-call-me-Pandora

    {Tammy}: Barbara, You are definitely hostess deluxe, and I thank you for your positive support. I adore cigar boxes and actually endured the "highly scented" cigar store and found empty boxes for sale cheap. Just remember to keep thinking out of the box {couldn't resist, pun intended}...

    Hey hey - the partial project I did yesterday and am finishing up tonight is posted on my blog. Plugging right along, it feels really nice to be actually accomplishing these things :) Hope everyone else is tackling some stuff as well.

    I know we aren't supposed to be thinking up new projects, but this challenge has revved up my creative mojo, I guess that's impossible. Thanks.
