Happy October 31st, a word about creativity & a little gift!


It's the last day of October. Which means: 
1. last day of my birth month. whaaa.
 2. 31st=Halloween. i love dressing up.
3. last day of the PINK month!  I was invited to be a part of a great month over at Pink Cake Plate & my post was today. 
Check it out:






“I believe all ideas are sprinkled from heaven…it’s up to us what we do with them.”
Each of us have ideas & inspiration come to us everyday. Whether it’s a creative idea, a helpful idea, a kind idea, or even a funny idea….i believe they are sprinkled from heaven.
And it’s up to US to use them in a way that will uplift and inspire others around us. This month’s PINK inspires me to use my ideas to help others as it reminds me that every single person we see is going through a difficult time.
Life isn’t easy…some of us face challenges with health, cancer, job issues, family problems….NOT ONE of us is immune…& when we have an idea pop in our mind to help someone, or create something for someone…I believe we need to follow that!….we can bring a piece of heaven to others…& in turn…ourselves."



I've been thinking a lot about this lately *specifically with our creative ideas* (coming off of Spark No. 3)& have so many thoughts & feelings about our ideas....& how we use them. Where they come from, how we credit the ideas & how we share them with others...

It's a learning process & I think it's so important to remember that the ideas we are getting are NOT ours....they are from a place much higher than ourselves...we are INSPIRED & we can choose to hoard that & not share it & get upset if something or someone is *similar* to us, OR
and I hope we choose the OR:
we can share more ideas, enjoy seeing others' ideas & always focus on progressing....and always exercising your creative muscle...every. day. like in my 100 Creativity Exercises.

It stifles creativity when we hoard those ideas (which is the whole premise behind Spark & why it was created)...I believe you need to SHARE your Spark & not get all catty about it..ya know?
well...


Go on over to her blog for the entire month....be prepared to be uplifted & inspired! She's amazing!


So...as she mentioned, I'm offering this quote aRt as a 
fRee download printable...in high rez!
to uplift & inspiRe! 


Just go over to Rhonna Designs to pick it up...& today, remember to share your creativity, ideas & spark...you will be much happier, I promise!
Happy October 31st...last day...make it a great one!

I am so grateful for the inspiration we all get from heaven. I am also infinitely grateful for the inspiration that we get from one another. What would we do without it?!! The creative community is such a great place to learn and grow and get inspiration. Not crediting those who give to us not only hurts the people we are taking from, but it hurts our own creative spirit. There is no reason to shun or take advantage of others as there is room for EVERYONE in the spotlight. Thanks for the reminder!

Rhonna Farrer said...

HeatherH...LOVED your cones. fab. so sorry you were sick. hope you feel better soon!

Wow! I love your point of view on creativity and ideas! Often times creative people worry about ideas being taken by others. I had an in depth conversation about this years ago...anyway, I kept thinking that ideas continually happen, you don't run out of them. They flow freely. I also feel the best form of flattery is when someone wants to try your idea. So long as their intentions are not to claim it as their own. This is a great topic for discussion. Also, many people believe that most ideas have already been thought of at some point in the past...we just update them, change them a little. lol I could go on and on! :)
