It’s Been Awhile

I know, I know…it’s been awhile. I’ve taken a break to spend some quality time with the family. Our Christmas was great. And we’re looking forward to a fantastic 2007.

Happy New Year everyone. I’ll be back soon with another post and some pictures.

Making Cookies Today

The boys are anxiously awaiting Santa’s arrival. And now, it’s time for making cookies!
Cookie dough recipe is Martha Stewart’s [Sugar Cookies II; Page 531 in The Martha Stewart Cookbook], cookie cutters are from Wilton (the best!). We bought the small rolling pins for the boys a few years back. The large rolling pin belonged to my grandmother. It has a wonderful patina.

Chocolate chip cookies my wife made yesterday.

What Does Creativity Look Like?

Do you ever feel like you’ve run out of ideas? Just how does this thing called ‘creativity’ work?

According to Alison Lee

“Struggle is a part of it. Struggle is a big part of being creative. You can’t leave that out. If you’re not stuck in the struggle for awhile, you’re not being creative. Creativity isn’t always a pretty little picture. Sometimes it’s muck, mire and cloudy days. And you just keep going through it and you come out the other side.”
