Shaking out some creative energy

thank you card hallmark creative energy right brain left brain art
I wanted to send thank you cards to some good-hearted friends, but none of the off-the-shell cards I found “felt” right, so I ended up making my own. In retrospect I’m not really sure what I was going for here, but I guess that’s how creativity works sometimes. Unlike developing software, where everything I do is meticulously planned out, with art I’ve realized that I’m not always sure what I am doing until I am done.

“All Done”

I’ve yet to run across a plumber or electrician that, when asked, “Do you do drywall?” responds with, “Why, yes! I love drywall! No problem!” Coincidentally, I’ve repaired more holes than there are windows in my house. At least when I get tired of software development I’ll have new skills to transition into.

Saving money

This is my friend. Yes, this happened. Yes, I am concerned for his safety. No, I can’t make this stuff up. The good news is that he survived and successfully painted the walls of his staircase – and saved a few bucks.

White noise

There’s a whole industry built up around “white noise” machines that play comforting sounds throughout the night to help people sleep. What the machines are lacking are all those uncomfortable, let’s call them “spousal embellishments”, that I feel are equally important. Well good news! I have the solution!
