May: What's Your Creative Outlet?












Lisa says, "Ted's creative outlet is talking and schmoozing. Hollywood's is making films. Maybe's is making tacos. What's yours?"

Writing! But also making photo books. I love doing that on Snapfish.

My creative outlet is teaching! I get to help kids think of project ideas all day long. And, when I feel like it, I can always join in the fun. It's a pretty cool job!

Little Willow said...

Acting
Singing
Dancing
Writing (songs, screenplays, stage plays, journaling, etc)
... and more!

Going off of the word "outlet" - I'm typically energized from the time I wake up until the time I (finally) fall asleep, so I'm a rather intense conductor -- and even that has a double meaning, as I like to lead, and direct, and take charge!

Lisa Yee said...

Mine's writing! (And reading.)

Micol Ostow said...

Writing, of course!
I also really like cooking. I'm sort of a master at chili.

Erin said...

Acting, filmmaking, music (singing and piano), photography, writing (songs, fiction, poetry, journaling, blogging).... being creative is my favorite. :)

Misty said...

Making model castles, writing, going to uni (I'm studing archaeology), reading and painting.

Also I think falling in love. That creative, especially for me, because I fall in love from a distance then I tend to change and add to someones personality in my head making them into the dream man.... does that make sense?

Lisa Yee said...

Oh, Misty, I love that falling in love is one of your creative outlets!

Rachel Maraii said...

I let all of my emotions go through photography, writing, drawing, and even cutting out random pictures and words to make magazine collages. Plus the occasional shower opera. :)

Andrea said...

Making jewelry and cards.

Priya said...

Making up stories in my head (but not writing them down!) And ummmm.... writing and solving systems of equations. Does that count?

Misty said...

Does that count? ...count hahaha

Martha Brockenbrough said...

Uh, is looking at Etsy a creative outlet?

No?

Then I would say writing and photography.

holly cupala said...

Writing, painting, crafting, sewing, music, karaokeing...wait, I did not just say that. Nothing to listen to here!

Lorie Ann Grover said...

Oh, boy! How about putting together funky outfits with thrift store finds?

And poetry, of course.

Shelf Elf said...

Writing.

Baking cakes.

(And Martha, I am with you that lurking around Etsy should count for something).

Erin said...

Lorie Ann, I love that! Putting together outfits from thrift store finds. That is totally one of my outlets, too, I just hadn't thought of it as one before. :)

Swinging in the hammock under the maple tree where I can dream, dream, dream!
