It’s “Two-Cent Tuesday”. I am here to share a creative idea or project that is low-cost.
Since the weather is getting warmer where I live, the change of seasons always bring to mind the need for a change in other areas. More and more people are heading outdoors to work and play.
Have you considered taking your creative project out and about on the porch, yard or public park? Is there a way to make your project portable? Expressing your creative energy means the energy within you is given an outlet; it is redirected into a more positive energy. Taking your creative outlet outdoors gives you more space and fresh air to work in. Maybe it will even be more energizing! Who wouldn’t enjoy that?
Two great goals most people hope for when the weather is nicer are to be creative and to improve and maintain health. You can do both at the same time when you are out and about.
Everyone is inheritably born with the potential for creativity. Igniting your creative spark outside is easy to embrace if your “art” or “craft” outlet is more easily portable. Endeavors like photographing, sketching, painting, writing, acting, sculpting, knitting, dancing, playing an instrument, light building, singing, etc., are all creative activities that can be “taken to the street”. I am sure you can think of more as well.
I have a few designated projects that are best done outside. I take advantage of the fresh air and ventilation outside when I torch, solder, paint and also sometimes wire-work jewelry. Each project has various supplies that I keep in separate containers that enable me to tote what is needed when it is needed. Portable art gives you the freedom to pick up and go when you want to.
Be on the look-out for containers that can help you be more organized or can be carried easily. I have several containers with handles and pop-up tote/baskets that are great for transporting items in the car, on a bike or while walking. Think of ways that you can store all that you need in one place and can be comfortable when you start working in a different location.
- Camping items like a folding stool, table or pop-up tent are helpful
- Use an easy fold up easel or tripod
- A backpack or other bag with several pockets can help you sort items
- An umbrella is great for shade or the unexpected shower threat.
- A cart with wheels may make your trek faster and lighter if you carry many items
- Recycle containers to include needed water for easy clean ups
Take it to the streets! The key to being creative is taking action, just try it outdoors. How have you or how can you make your project portable? Do share your comments with us.
