7 creative ways 2 make the everyday extraordinary

It's week 2 of Creativity over at  Spring and since I'm in love with all the seasons, I've decided with prompting from Pat Langley (from last weeks post) to Spring into action with em. The prompt for this week is How can you use creativity in your every day, “mundane” life? With that said let's get some definitions out of the way.

creativity - refers to the phenomenon
whereby something new is created which has some kind of value.
mundane - ordinary : commonplace
extraordinary - beyond what is ordinary or usual

7 creative ways 2 make the everyday extraordinary

1. Twist it up - create a natural twist with vines, pines &   more
2. Collect lights - add the extraordinary to the everyday with mini lights
3. Surprise em - Keep a cheap $5 white Christmas tree (oh-hand)
   to add an element of surprise to any occasion
4. Metal it up - add metallic spray paint to it
5. Keep it Blank - save blank notebooks/clip boards
   as impromptu creative coffee time gifts
6. Mix it up - create special ipod shuffles for travel, work, relax, & fun
7. Wrap it up - the mail, for that special someone.


  1. All great ideas. Love the white tree.

  2. thanks for inspiring , gotta do that too ! : )

  3. Ooh, these are all so fantabulous! I think "metal it up" is my favorite. Anything that adds extra sass is great in my book! :)

  4. Sonya,
    Well said ! I'd like to respond to your 7 creative ways:We seem to be on the same wave length.
    1)There are vines springing out all over the fence, so this may take awhile !
    2)All the houses on our block put up Halloween lights! I've been fighting that one.
    3)I'm holding out for a bottle tree for the yard. I love them.
    4)Metallic paint is one of my favorites.
    5)You've been peeking in my journal box !
    6)I'm old enough that I don't understand this one.
    7)Wrapped up a pumpkin beanie baby today for granddaughter today.

  5. What a great list! Very inspiring:)

  6. This post really caught my eye! Guess that makes me a list person...all really wonderful tips, especially like the metallic spray paint tip...oh think of the possibilities for creativity with spray can in hand!

  7. Great ideas! I've always thought of putting up white lights. When the Christmas lights come out I think I'll buy some.

    Love the tree with the oranges on it! And what a wonderful idea to wrap something up for someone. I'll have to think about what to do with that one.
