Show and Tell

I loved show and tell when I was a kid, didn't you? A chance to share something special from home was always fun. Even more fun was helping my sons with their choices during their show and tell times. The best was when the kindergarten aged son took his six weeks old baby brother dressed in blue to represent the letter "B". No, we didn't allow either of them on the bus that day.

I'd love to do a little bit of the same here on Creative Soul. Tomorrow starts the beginning of 'Ta-Da Fridays."

I'll post something I've accomplished. You can post your creations in comments with a link to your own blog or photobucket account with a photo. (Still working on the fine points of all this.)

Words written, chapters edited, poetry composed, quilts sewn, gardens weeded, canvas's painted, jewelry beaded, rooms decorated, photographs exposed, pottery thrown, crafts crafted. You get the idea. Creative life in motion.

The idea, of course, is to share our fun and keep us on track. Accountability, ya know? When I first joined a weekly writer's group, I wasn't writing consistently. Every week, someone in that room would ask, 'how's your writing going?' Some weeks I'd have to answer, 'what writing?' because I hadn't written a word that week. Accountability helped me move closer to my dreams. I hated saying I haven't written all week. Still do.

Whatever moves your creative soul is what I want to hear about.

Thanks, Deb, for giving us the opportunity to do the "ta da" with you every Friday. I hope you don't mind--I'll probably piggyback on your Fridays through your comments section.

Please do piggyback. We want to see what you've created this week.
