My first book on creativity. I love it so much. It's definitely got an artistic perspective - but totally usable for those of us who identify ourselves as crafters. Love Rice Freeman Zachary. To hear more of her creative goodness check out her podcast "Notes from the Voodoo Lounge."
Twyla Tharp is highly respected in the modern dance community. Don't let this scare you off from this book. Her thoughts on creativity can be applied to any creative practice.
Kelly Rae Roberts. She is a true inspiration. We have similar job backgrounds and I would love to push my limits and dive into art with the gusto and fearlessness characteristic of her creative life.
Jo Packham is a genius at showing craft spaces while paying credence to women's creative lives. She's also the creator of Where Women Create and Where Women Cook. Need I say more?
Patti Digh. Her writing style is amazing and speaks to a part of me I don't usually make time for. I know some of her tasks will become part of a ever changing daily practice for me. I already have a great idea! I'm thinking about coloring/doodling/stamping a 1" square for my 35th year. Still percolating on whether this is the project I want to start.
So there you have it. My favorite books on creativity. I'll have more books to share later this week. I'll continue to keep you posted on my daily practice. I hope everyone has a nice Monday. I woke up with GERD throat at 2:00 in the morning - hence the early post time. Hoping the day starts to look up. Until then...
P.S. If anyone knows when to use who or whom, I could really use a lesson. :)
