To The Point

IMG_0001

Playing with Zentangle pens today.  Tree leaves are mainly on the ground and the sky is murky-gray.  Definitely a day to cozy with the cats, make soup, drink peppermint tea, and create in my own small way.

A few months ago I began to play on Pinterest (here), and now I find it the first site I turn to when I log on my computer each morning.  After some thought I’ve decided I like it because it is visual.  I work with numbers all day, read or write words in my free time, and Pinterest gives me a feast of visual.  Creating boards is an easy, quick fix for the part of me that longs for visual joy.

I’m also enjoying inspiration from the Facebook group The Daily Creative Practice.  I’m sharing my little Zentangle as my contribution to today’s posts. Let’s get visual!

    It’s funny, I didn’t think I would like Pinterest as much as I do. But I think you’re right that it’s because of the visually creative aspect of it that draws me in as well.

      I’m with you, Yvonne. I didn’t think I would like it either, but I surprised myself. There is wonderful art and photography on Pinterest and it is relaxing to open up the site and see what is there for the day. Thanks for visiting here! 🙂

    nice… i as well need my little creative islands… for me it’s painting and re-decorating the house at the moment… playing with color a bit… smiles
    and cool on finding that new place…

  3. I’ve been afraid to delve into Pinterest. I’m afraid I’ll like it too much – and then that will be one more thing that will keep me from writing! :-0

      I hear you, Pamela. It did get a little addicting for me, but I don’t spend a great deal of time on it and I think it fills my mind with good things and possibilities. I’m almost at the point of cutting back on social media, but not quite there yet. LOL
