Resources to help you embrace creativity in the midst of the mundane

I’ve often sat in awe of the creativity and skill of the truly talented artists of our world—the greats like Leonardo da Vinci as well as the artists of today with quirky crafts like carving the tiny tips of sharpened pencils or drawing 3D sidewalk chalk art that rivals anything in Mary Poppins.

My dad and husband are among those talented artists—handcrafting furniture, painting pictures and murals, turning rough supplies into a beautiful finished product.

The talent seems to have skipped right over me in our family, and I wore that badge proudly for many years in an effort to ignore my creative side. Yet I’ve realized over the years that there’s still a hunger deep inside of me to embrace my creativity.

I probably won’t ever sell my creations, and there certainly won’t be any viral videos of my work making their way across Facebook; however, even the simple act of crocheting a banner of shamrocks for the windows in March, doodling a coloring page for my girls to color, or carefully picking out the notes of a new song on the piano ignites a creative spark within me.

It’s not just these “creative” pursuits that meet our need for creativity, of course. You can also embrace your creativity in the way you make dinner, the way you do your work, and the way you see the world.

Which is good news for those of us whose days are filled with those things that can easily be called mundane—sitting at a desk, helping the kids with their homework, preparing meals, cleaning up after everyone and putting yet another load of laundry on.

For those of us who wish for more still, who are happy to embrace the small moments of our lives via the lens of creativity but still want to carve out time to learn a new skill, exercise an old one, or just make a mess without worrying about the final product, it can be overwhelming to know where to start.

As I worked with the Ultimate Bundles team to put together the Ultimate DIY Bundle 2015, our goal was simple: create a package of resources from the world’s leading DIY and crafting bloggers that will allow purchasers to jump right in and exercise those creative muscles, no matter how long they’ve been sitting dormant.
