We all have a creative side. It manifests itself differently in every person. It may be through cooking, decorating, woodworking, crafting, scrapbooking, writing or one of the many other ways we can express ourselves. However many of us get overwhelmed with the day to day and lose touch with that side of ourselves. If that’s where you find yourself, there are some great websites out there to help you get back in touch with the creative side of you.
Cre8time.org is a website that provides tips, inspiration, support and tools for anyone who wants to be creative, but is challenged to find the time to do so. It is essentially a movement to help busy people who love creating, reclaim the time to be creative and get the rewards that come from doing the things we enjoy.
Pinterest is more than a website. It is a social media platform. However beyond that, it is an organizational method and discovery center that lets you quickly and easily find creative solutions for everything. While there has been an increase in commercial content on Pinterest, for the most part the pins you find there will help you be a more creative cook, baker, party thrower, decorator, furniture maker and more. If you have ever wished for a treasure trove of ideas, Pinterest is it.
Yes, Etsy is a website that sells handmade items, but more than that, it is a source of inspiration. You can get fantastic ideas of things you might like to attempt to make. You also find that there is inspiration in the fact that there are so many people who have harnessed their creativity can then retail it successfully. It may even be a goal to attain to.
Apart from these great sites that can provide you with a lot of the motivation and spark needed to get creative, there are also other sites that can help. A quick search for “discover your creativity” or “being creative” comes up with never-ending results of blog posts, wikis, videos and lists on how to get creative. From the how-to websites to stores catering to craft supplies to life coaches, and more, it seems that everyone has a take on jumpstarting your creativity. Explore a few of these and put the suggestions that resonate with you into practice. Creativity is different for everyone and what works for one person may do nothing for another.
Good luck with reigniting your creative side!
