Are you a retiree looking for a new activity, project or idea? If that is you, we have tons of ideas and suggestions to re-ignite the creative person inside you.
Creative people have a deep sense of belief and connection to their creativity. They believe they should put time and effort into creating new things. If you are one of them, and would like some ideas this is the right place.
In fact, we were all endlessly creative as children but over the years, we have allowed conditioning and fears of being critically judged to over-ride our desire to be creative.
