Get Your Creative On!


Here she is. GYCO lives, Mr. Linky or not! Thanks for the encouragement everyone, I’m looking forward to checking out your creativity today! Just a recap…

  • Your creativity can be anything from a DIY to a creative way you told your husband you love him. Perhaps you got creative with dinner this week, or maybe a creative way you saved some cash. If you aren’t a “crafter” have no fear! There are a gagillion ways to be creative in this life.
  • You aren’t required to use a brand-spankin’ new post. In the beginning we’re just getting this going, so feel free to link to something creative from the past that you’re proud of.
  • You’ll be using the comment section to link to your weekly Get Your Creative On. Be sure you are linking to the permalink (if you are unsure, click the title of your post, then you’ll use the link in your address bar, your permalink).
  • Of course I’d be flattered if you wanted to link back here to the Get Your Creative On party!

My featured creative mama today is Chele who blogs at The Bona Fide Life. Last week she shared with us her clever summer activity cards. She’s come up with a handful of cheap & fun ideas for her family to do, and written them out on colorful cards. Click HERE to read all about it!


Chele, don’t forget to snag your Featured On badge!

Do you have a creative idea to share? I hope you’ll still link up below in the comment section, Happy Friday!

    Jessica, I LOVE this idea! What a great spin off to Chele’s summer stuff :)

    i love this idea. i had a friend who did that for the month of december last year with all holiday ideas (make hot chocolate, go see Santa, movie day, go look at Christmas lights, etc.). she wrote the ideas on cute scrapbook/holiday paper and then put them in a glass jar. her son got to pick one out each day.

    Great to be back on Get Your Creative On! I used a little creativity to organize my recipes. Here’s my creative link for the week:

    Hi Angie and everyone!

    I posted today about making pancakes and waffles from scratch, and how with just a little bit of creativity, it’s just as easy as making them from the boxed mix. Here’s my link:

    I’m currently waiting for my friend to get here so that we can have a sewing and crafting day, and tomorrow I’m having a scrapbooking day with another friend, so I’m hoping to have something great to write about next week!

    Have a great weekend everyone :)

    Yay for GYCO! At first, I wasn’t going to link anything (because I couldn’t think of what creative thing I’d done…)

    However…. I’m posting the link for my Giveaway for the Style Statement book. This book inspires creativity on all levels.

    Ang – thanks for the “featured on” badge. I’ll add it this weekend! ; )

    Casey, thanks so much for coming by anyhow and for posting about it! No worries about this week, I sort of made it confusing with my being unsure to continue sans Mr. Linky :) So glad we are going forward with it.

    Have a wonderful weekend!

    I have nothing this week, but I did post about the party so that hopefully others will see and join in. Also, it’s a reminder so I remember to do something creative every week

  • Chele

    Thank you AGAIN!!!! I have actually written more about this idea today (you know how my week has been!) God will get me out of this rut!! LOL!

    Here it is:
