that's what she said!

in preparation for the queen bee market, my sister and i have been thinking a lot about what it means for each of us to have creativity in our lives and why the creative community is so amazing. so, for this week's "that's what she said," i asked the following on twitter:

"how do you feel about being creative/ part of a creative community?"

I love what Arianne said - found hearts, no longer an island...sometimes being creative gets you looks like you've just turned green and jumped off a spaceship - being around other creative people feels like you landed on your home planet :)

So I don't tweet (I know I'm living in the dark ages) But I had to chime in too :)
It's a such blessing to have a community of kindred spirits that understand the compulsive need to create beauty from the everyday ordinary.
