More on Those Great Thoughts; Grayslake Report; Wheaton Coupon
I am sorry to say the second and third articles are all the way back from an issue in March (memo to self: stay caught up on reading this year!) The article on creativity was top-notch, making a number of good points, including that creativity is a skill that can be cultivated. My favorite tip -- to increase creativity, try to practice solving problems in areas not directly related to what you do. Being an "expert" can actually inhibit problem-solving. Also, a relaxed brain is more likely to be creative. Gonna have to work on both of those! Also in this issue was a wonderful article on another creative hero of mine, chalk artist Dana Tanamachi. So much goodness, all in one place. We heart you, WSJ!
Grayslake turned out to be a good show for us -- we were busy both days, with sales across the board. This was really welcome, as things had been a little sleepy since right before Christmas. Many thanks to all who came out to support us! Next up: Wheaton, this Saturday. Remember to print your coupon for HALF-OFF general admission. See the link in our calendar sidebar for more show info. xo
