Our own 2015 Creativity Quotes Desk Calender

Hey everyone,

Hope you had a great start this year!

And with the start of a new year, everyone has resolutions, plans and goals and of course a desk calendar to keep track of everything. I always make a fuss when choosing the right calendar, after all, you’ll be looking at it a whole year.

To complete goals I need motivation, it keeps me focused on what I have to do and I often use quotes for that. So I thought, why not make my own calender with all the ingredients that I love!

I’m a graphic designer and always wanted to do things my own way, so I did my first tryout this year, it’s not perfect yet, but it’s a great start. To celebrate my mini achievement I did a give away on my Facebook page! You can click on the link to see all about it, the giveaway promo and the winners with their favorite quotes. I hope you like it:

PicMonkey Collage

This is the idea:

  • It had to be colorful, I love colors!
  • The main theme had to be “creativity”
  • All the used quotes related to be creative
  • And it had to be “edgy”
  • Putting all the months in a row, you can see the word “creativity” spelled in gold throughout the calendar.

And here are all the quotes I used:


“You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.” ― Maya Angelou

“Learn the rules like a pro, so you can break them like an artist.” ― Pablo Picasso

“The urge to destroy is also a creative urge.” ― Pablo Picasso

“Creativity is knowing how to hide your sources” ― Albert Einstein

“We have to continually be jumping off cliffs and developing our wings on the way down.” ― Kurt Vonnegut

“Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions.” ― Albert Einstein

“Creativity takes courage. ” ― Henri Matisse

“An idea that is not dangerous is unworthy of being called an idea at all.” ― Oscar Wilde

“I never made one of my discoveries through the process of rational thinking” ― Albert Einstein

“Doors are for people with no imagination.” ― Derek Landy, Skulduggery Pleasant

“The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt.” ― Sylvia Plath, The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath

“You can never solve a problem on the level on which it was created.” ― Albert Einstein

Craft room clean up!

Hey everyone,

This week I have been cleaning up my craft room. I was a heavy job as I had to let go of many things I held dear to my heart.

But I chose to do so to make room for new things and to shape the purpose of the room and of my crafting style. I had to much of to many going on at the same time that I lost track of what I like and what I need.

So if anyone is interested I’ve set up a mini shop on the facebook page of some of the things I am selling.

Letting go is hard but it does feel good, especially when you are helping someone who needs the things more than you do.

Here’s the store: Crafty Teacups Thrift Store!

I’ll leave you with a verse that helps me when cleaning:

Isaiah 43:18-19 (AMP)

Do not [earnestly] remember the former things; neither consider the things of old. Behold, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs forth; do you not perceive and know it and will you not give heed to it? I will even make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.
