Finding the Potential.

Use the vision of an artist, look at things not for what they are, but for the potential that they might have........

Repurposing "garbage" into arts and crafts has been something that I have done as long as I can remember. I am rubbing off on my eight year old son. His creativity an ingenuity never ceases to amaze me. I wonder what we could make out of this? Wait! Don't Throw that Away! I can make a car with that, wouldn't this make a great airplane? I love how imaginative and playful he is! It has been a great year creating together.

As this year is coming to a close, I thought I would take a look at the most popular posts on this blog this year. I still feel like a "newbee" to the blog world, having posted for about seven months now. I am starting to get the hang of things when I have the time to do so! According to whatever the popular post gadget uses to determine popularity- my top 3 posts were all about using old markers! How Cool is that!

Top Post #1: The Markers Don't Work!

Top Post #2: A Few Ideas With Marker Caps (as promised)

Top Post #3: What Could It Be? (I promise this is the last post on markers for now)

Here's to a new year of reusing and repurposing.......

Remember to face each day with artist's eyes and harness the potential all around you!
