Oh! You want more ideas? What you think this is, an idea-shop?
Yeah, yeah it is. You want fries with that?
a) Grab your crafting box, get out the beads. If you don’t got no beads, break apart the necklaces you don’t like. Voila! Beads! Make earrings, decorate t-shirts… make creepy little beaded voodoo dollies. Do a little voodoo on your ex-boyfriend. Not too evil.
b) Find something broken in your home. Either throw it out, mend it, or use it to make something else. ETA: don’t break something just in order to have something to use! Unless, you know… you wanna.
c) Go through your pile of to-be-thrown-out newspapers and magazines, make a collage. Make a my-life-in-five-years collage. Include a Tesla!
Ha, think I’ve got the hang of this… oh no, that was the last one of the week!

This is about the Zumba section of ‘Art and Soul, Reloaded”s weekly tasks. This is like a little section of additional ‘fun’ tasks. Yikes!
And this week, it involves buying a crazy outfit from a charity shop (or thrift store, if you’re located a long paddle away from where I am.) A little historical research (can do). And making body-part shaped biscuits. (Again, or cookies, if you’re a champion doggy-paddler.)
Ehhhh… maybe. I make no promises. The ideas alone are making my brain squeak and seize up like an old banger.
The book really is fun to read. The ideas, a little unnerving in places!

I got Pam Grout’s new book, ‘Art and Soul, Reloaded‘ for Christmas. Lucky me! And since it’s structured in the form of weekly projects, I figure I will make a serious stab at them, and at finishing them by next New Year. Gotta try, right?
The first week’s project, as advised by Ms. Grout, is simply to log amount of time spent on social media for the week. Then to cut it in half, and spend the freed-up time on creative pursuits instead. And in addition, to come up with three new ideas a day. No matter how ridiculous!
Well, we’re already halfway through the week. So I’ll come up with my best estimate of the time I waste daily – say two hours. And, yes, make an effort to cut it down.
And today’s three ideas?
i) write a Gothic novel summary with a clown as the hero
ii) decorate a mug to celebrate a national holiday that doesn’t exist
iii) build a ladybug house.
