Tips on How to be Creative During Lockdown and After

Hi There..... Are you creative?

As some of you may already know..... I am..... Ever since I was a kid and probably till the day I die 😁

No worries..... I plan on being around for quite a while still..... There is more than enough time left for me to play the fool 😋

For me, creativity is my therapy against the pain I have on a daily basis..... I am pretty sure that many people use it to keep the stress from this pandemic of their mind too 😀

Things like drawing, sewing, building things or other creative activities reward your brain..... Not only with what you made of course..... That's not what I meant..... Creativity seems to release dopamine 😊

Ha..... Did you think I would leave it at that..... I can see your face frowning..... What on earth is this dopamine..... It's some kind of hormone and a neurotransmitter that plays a very important role in our brain and body..... It gives you a sense of pleasure and reward..... It is said to relieve stress and reduce the tension that has build-up in your system..... Cool, right 😍

So you can imagine that I was happy to receive this gift from Beeeasycrafts..... I am really happy with the color and love the feel of this wool 

I got it along with the description on how to crochet a basket out of this yarn..... Oh yes, I have done a lot of knitting and crochet too when I was a young girl 😄

Below is a picture of the basket I am gonna make..... Looks pretty cool..... Don't you agree 😎

I will definitely be showing you the basket on my Instagram page once I have it finished..... But let me tell you a bit about this Beeeasycrafts shop first ..... They offer crochet, quilting, and vinyl..... They are an Ice Yarn reseller too..... They offer short how-to videos, product reviews and more 😄

Julie Ammon and her daughter in law Dakoda Hathaway both run the shop together..... Must be quite nice being able to do this together 😊

You can find a lot of their live sessions on their Facebook page ..... So be sure to head on over there if you are interested..... But hey wait..... You have to read the rest of my blog post first..... I still have to show you some of the things you can find in their shop 😁

Haven't they learned by now - funny story by Seadbeady

Hi There..... Are you a fan of story telling? Would you like to hear a funny story?

I sure hope so..... Because I really can't help myself..... Weird things happen to me sometimes..... I am not always in full control..... There is some outer source that drives me from time to time..... It is called..... The brain 😂

My funny story is somewhat based on the most recent developments here in Belgium..... We are having our second Corona wave and they have strengthened the rules..... No more fun shopping..... You are supposed to go shop on your own and the maximum time is half an hour..... I was talking about it to my physiotherapist when my mind started spinning..... And this is the result 😁

Haven't they learned by now - funny story by Seadbeady 😍

Seadbeady had been restless all morning..... She just needed to go out.
'Mom'..... 'Yes Darling'..... 'I really need to go. I just can't take it any longer. I am fed up with this lockdown. If I don't get out today I swear my head is gonna explode'..... 'Come on dear, you know it's dangerous out there'..... 'I know mom but I'm bored stiff. I am going and that's final'

She took her bike out and put on her mask, and off she went to the center.....Halfway she had to stop to get the damp of her glasses

'Darn'..... She said..... 'I forgot to put on the shaving cream'

The shaving cream would have kept her glasses from fogging up while wearing a mask..... She left her bike in the cycle parking and hurried to the Shopping Mall..... Seadbeady didn't lose time window shopping..... She went straight to her favorite store..... It shocked her that some elderly people were chatting in the middle of her path.....  They were not wearing their masks properly..... She wanted to avoid coming too close to them 

'Really'..... She thought..... 'Haven't they learned by now'

But she didn't let it get to her..... She was determined to get herself that new outfit she needed..... So she took a basket and a timer and popped into the shop..... There were so many cute outfits in this new collection that she completely lost track of time..... She finally decided to go and fit some things

'Ok'..... She thought..... 'First I am gonna try on this gorgeous pink T-shirt and if I am lucky it will be a perfect match to this white skirt'

She had been so preoccupied that at first, she hadn't even noticed her timer going off..... It made an unbearable sound

'Oh My God'..... 'No'..... 'Not now'..... 'I haven't even tried on my skirt'

She promptly put everything back in her basket and rushed out of the fitting booth..... As she looked up she noticed all the people around eyeballing her

'Did she take up all her time'..... She overheard an old lady asking her husband..... 'I think so'..... He replied..... 'The Youth of today'..... 'Haven't they learned by now'

The end 😀

Hope you like my blog post.....Until next time.....Have a great day
