....yeah, so that word makes me think of Carly Simon's song. In fact, I will probably need to go listen to it before I leave this morning.
I placed an order for some art books last week. Two of them arrived yesterday. Oh!!! They are GREAT. One of them is geared for getting kids creating. "The Creative Family" by Amanda Blake Soule. My girls are both really creative, but the boys just don't seem too interested. Although, sometimes, if I have a "group project" in progress, both Ryan and Alex might join in, but usually, in the conception stages, they have no interest. They just usually don't put much brain power into thinking about being vcreative on their own. There are some fun ideas that I can't wait to try. Oh! and Yes! Quincy ALWAYS loves to jump right in and has no fear of being creative.
The OTHER book that arrived yesterday: "Kaleidoscope" by Suzanne Simanaitis really got my creative gears cranking. I don't know why but even to smell the pages makes me happy. That paper smells soooooooo good! And the cover has a neat matte and glossy mix. So there is even the element of touch there. All the pages are filled with very visually stimulating images. I read most of the book last night before I fell asleep and had a hard time putting it down.
So back the anticipation piece....I eagerly anticipate the arrival of one other book and a periodical. Hopefully they will be here SOON! I can't wait to get my hands on them to devour them, too!
