Being creative is exciting and thrilling. You could wake up one morning and think I would love too ... (Insert what you would love to create). The great part about creating is you don't have to be a creative person, every body is creative and can do creative activities. Let the self doubt and inexperience fly out the door and start thinking about what you want to create.

Below are three fundamentals of getting creative:

One. Find what you think looks interesting to create

Pinterest is a good starting place. Search all different types of arts and crafts, creative activities and creative tasks you are interested in, for example: DIY fashion creations, DIY wood creations and the list goes on. Once you have chosen what you are going to do. Go shopping for the recipe and complete the activity the same day (if it's not too big). This is important, otherwise doubt of not being good enough can creep in and stop you from trying it.

Two. Follow the instructions on how to make your creative piece

When following the instructions try first by following it their way and the second time, do it your way. Create it how you pictured it in your mind. For example if you want to build yourself a wooden shoe cupboard but you would want to paint it with pink glitter paint then do it.

Three. Immerse yourself in your creative activity

The point of getting creative is losing yourself to the process and finding yourself through the work. Find your soul and go for it. Enjoy it and have fun with it.
