List 50 ways you are creative...

Creativity isn't just "art", creativity is in everything you do every day.  The way you do your hair, arrange your furniture, prepare a meal are all your own creativity.  I started out listing 25, but that was too easy; so I upped it to 50 to make it harder...but it wasn't.

50 ways I am creative:
1. Sewing
2. Quilting
3. Drawing
4. Painting
5. Laughing
6. Playing games - like my new addiction to Scrabble on my iPod
7. Organizing my shelves
8. Baking goodies - I haven't done this in a while, but I want to bake something for the Retreat this weekend.
9. Embellishing a quilt
10. Deciding what to wear
11. Putting up my hair
12. Putting on make-up, when I actually do that.
13. Putting on jewelry...when I actually do that too.
