  1. I like this list, too - varied enough so that if one thing doesn't appeal there's bound to be plenty more to choose from!

  2. I'm going to print this list out. So many good ideas (some of which I do already) but my favorite - practice, practice, practice!! I've seen people's creativity grow and expand when they do this!

  3. I agree Kissy.....varied enough to appeal to many!

    And Judy.....I agree. We often give up too soon, don't we? Practice, practice, practice. : )
