Chapter 11, Page 7, Book 19


Creativity is intelligence having fun.

Albert Einstein

November 7th - the mind s a wonderful thing


You cant use up creativity.  The more you use, the more you have.

Maya Angelou 

Creativity is the act of turning new and imaginative ideas into reality. Intelligence has been defined in many different ways including ones of capacity for logic, understandingself awareness, learning, emotional knowledge planning, creativity, and problem solving.  

Being creative doesnnecessarily mean you are artistic or musical.  It means your brain is designed in a way that helps you solve problems. 

Creative people are always on the lookout for possible solutions, which involves intentional noticing things and not pegging people you meet based on your expectations or categories youve established in your mind. 

 I donconsider myself a creative person, but know haw to take the advantage of the creativity of others.  Im what you’d call a copy cat.  But even us copycats have to do a little creative thinking to be able to  use the creativity of others.  I use creative ideas of others and make them work for me.  


Creativity involves breaking out of established patterns in order to look at things in a different way.

Edward de Bono

There is nothing like a new idea to make us feel creative.

Methinks we are all copy cats to a certain extent. Most folk can take someone's ideas and their mind does flip flops using that idea in ways the original dude never thought of.
Cooks are some of the best, taking a basic recipe, adding and detracting and come up with something delicious that was not envisioned.
This is another good one lady. NICE.

I think you are pretty creative, Ma. You write a great blot, you paint great things you are going to give as gifts, you make/bake delicious looking things! So don't sell yourself short! I do believe though we all are creative in the things we've been gifted with from God and it is just a matter of finding what those are and then using them wisely :)

I copy things, and add my own spin on pieces, too. I like your post today, as every post I read here. You are a creative blogger....xo

Oh, but your works of art are wonderfully creative! Yes, I've always believed creativity was defined by (only) artists, actors and authors. Thank you for presenting some alternate ideas!
