Creativity Boot Camp

I'm participating in Creativity Boot Camp. Yesterday was the first day, and while I'll leave the journaling part of this private, I'm happy to share my creative works.

I chose photography for my medium. I have a new Nikon D3000 that I got as a Christmas gift from my husband. I'm trying very hard to get really good with it and I thought this was the perfect opportunity for that.

Yesterday's prompt was Ivory.

This was the first thing that came to my mind and we were in Wisconsin till late in the day, so I didn't have a lot of time to think about it.

Today's prompt was picnic.

The first thing I thought of was Teddy Bear Picnic. I found out this morning that I am teaching two weeks of preschool enrichment starting tomorrow. I've been scouring the internet for ideas and one of my thoughts was to do bears one week. I thought a teddy bear picnic would be fun for the kids.

Teaching summer school the next two weeks is going to throw a little monkey wrench in my plans for all my free time for the Creativity Boot Camp. I am still commited to doing it though. I have been very excited about it and I'll find the time to do my best job.


  1. Oh my! It started already! Good for you for following through. I'm sure it'll be very beneficial. Your pictures seem certainly seem creative for the prompts!
    So two weeks of preschool enrichment? Does that mean our Dunes walk has a slight postponement?

  2. i love the piano keys... great pic. and your teddies are lovely. my nephew is having a teddy bears picnic at nursery (preschool), and can't wait - i'm sure you'll do great xxx

  3. I'm looking so forward to all of your CREATIVITY! I love the teddy Bear Picnic! Can I come!?

  4. We had a teddy bear picnic every year at my school. A fun idea ... we used the parachute to bounce our bears in the big room too! The kids loved it! Enjoy your summer classes!

  5. Thanks Nancy! Your comments mean so much!!

  6. Enjoy teaching your summer school. I used to do that when I taught pre-school. The extra money was nice. Love & blessings from NC!

  7. I love them both :) And teddy bears used to be my favorite...

  8. Great picture of the piano the angle! Good luck with summer school!

  9. Summer school and teddy bears sound like a lot of fun. Love the piano key picture...I love to tickle the ivory's every now and then.
