The first Be Creative Now Weekend, which took place in January was an outstanding success. I expected about 20 people to be interested, but over 100 took part! It will now become a regular event and I anticipate at least 9 during the rest of 2014. The next weekend will be 21st, 22nd, 23rd February. No need to leave home – just devote 15 minutes (minimum) to doing something. Anything creative is valid, but if you need a prompt to get you going there will be a few published throughout the days here. Please remember that these are just starting prompts, how you use them is up to you. Post a picture of what you do on your blog or on Flickr. Please link back to this blog so that we can come and visit. Leave a note below and I’ll make sure you have an invitation to join us on Facebook too. All standards are welcome – as are disciplines as varied as quilting, cooking, photography and sculpture. If you create – you qualify. The important thing to remember is that this is not a place for blatant self-promotion or selling. It is a place where all levels can feel safe to create and present their efforts. We can learn from everyone, so let’s make it a truly creative weekend.
