How often have we heard, "Take time to indulge your creativity!" yet we are too busy to do so. Who has the time to slow down and lose yourself in a "project"? Well, this book shows you how. Just one creative step at a time, you rediscover a craft you loved as a child, or you embrace a brand new one. Allison Arden's hands-on workbook is full of specific, easy, doable steps that unlock your creative juices. I, for example, love to bake. I followed the author's grandmother's recipe for old-fashioned apple cake. Delicious! Another of the book's suggestions: read biographies of famous people. I just finished Mary Todd Lincoln's (something I'd been meaning to read for years) and now I'm reading the biography of the Marquis de Lafayette. There are nearly 200 pages of suggested activities --- from throwing a themed party to learning to play chess; from starting a book club to waking early to watch the sunrise; from adopting a holiday you've never celebrated to learning how to pickle something (recipe for pickled string beans included). And, while indulging in our favorite creative activities feels good and creates bliss, there's another HUGE benefit: those "good feelings" that result from doing what we love permeate the rest of our day. The creative juices make all the other parts of our day - work and play - more inspired, joyful, and productive. I appreciated the author's creativity in describing activities we can do alone, with friends, or with family, and I am happy to enthusiastically recommend this book!
