You’re Invited

creative.jpgSometimes it’s easier and more fun to be creative if there are other people involved. You can expand on one another’s ideas—a creativity jam session.

So this week, I suggest that you plan a creative get-together. It doesn’t have to be an elaborate event or a formal party, but invite some friends over to do something creative together. Cooking dinner, making music, writing a story, reading a play aloud, sculpting your poodle, designing a website. Something that a group of people can pitch in their ideas and end up with one final product.

If you’re in Tokyo, please mark your calendar for my creative get-together.

We’ll make nengajo, New Year’s cards, on Sunday, December 7th in the afternoon. I’ll have postcard stock and lots of pens, paint, paper, glue and tidbits available. Afterwards, let’s cook dinner together.

If you want to come along to play, e-mail me for more details. Plan to bring your favorite art supplies for making postcards, and/or an ingredient for dinner.

Sign me up, but I have to participate remotely. H. and I will work on some - same day. We have plenty of supplies here, and we’ll send you a card if they come out well! Great idea.

Btw, are you collecting these “perspectives” for a book? Sure would make a wonderful collection. I am always looking for books that have fresh ideas, and I know I’m not the only one. There are plenty out on the market, but I’m sure with your resources you can make yours stand out from the rest. Just a thought. Thanks for sharing your ideas.
