Creative Playtime

I think I've probably mentioned in a previous post that Sundays are my day to really play creatively, making it my favorite day of the week. Weekdays are filled with doing the things I know I "need" to do for my creative business like filling etsy orders, working on new designs for my shops, and getting ready for shows. But Sunday is when I just play. I don't worry so much about whether or not my Sunday creations turn out the way I plan, I just go with it, have fun, and enjoy whatever comes out of the process. I definitely think we all need that play time, a chance to recharge our creative batteries! Here are a few of my fun creations from my "play time" yesterday :-)

I had so much fun with this mandala, and can definitely see me making more of these! 

This one didn't scan particularly well, but I really love the way it turned out. Just a fun little love house with some black and white photos of my family. Now that I live here in England with so many miles between us, I wanted a fun way to see there faces everyday that was different from just a standard photo in a frame. It makes me smile just to look at it :-) 

What about you? How do you keep your creative batteries charged? Do you have a special time that you set aside just for playing?
