First, I have the need to make things, I feel it deep inside and become unhappy when I ignore it. I enjoy seeing new things come from my mind and become real in the world.
Second, I don't want my son to grow up thinking that creativity has to be perfect, that if it isn't exactly what you wanted you can't do it.

So I'm thinking his will likely take the shape of photos and mine will be knitting/sewing/cooking. His might be drawing, or lego building. The thing it it doesn't matter, it will just matter that each day we devote some time to making new creative things.
Wish us luck and let me know if you are going to join in. I'd love to see what others make in the month of February to push away the darkness and call to the light of spring sooner.
