Creativity comes in many guises...

I have been doing all kinds of creative stuff these past several days but I haven't had a chance to get photos of them. So, here's a pic from our trip to the local wildlife refuge taken on Saturday, January 23, 2010.

I love the stark wintry look. It was actually a great day with soft winter sunlight, blue skies, and almost 50 degrees. Between us we took almost 400 photos. (I maybe took 20 of the photos but I like the ones I took)

My main creative outlet this past week has been teaching myself how to do drop down menus with cascading style sheets (css). I have the menus figured out. (YIPPEE!) Now, I just have to finalize the design template, then the school web site will get all updated and re-vamped! I'm so excited to get this completed.

We had a great community Lit Night at the school I work at, with about 300 people attending. Stories, poetry, theatre games, food, free books and loads of fun. I was there doing my best to document it all on the 'good' camera and helping to take care of a few computer issues too. :)

Oh and most exciting news... Nor'West Coffee Roasters Roastery Coffeehouse 8013 St Johns Rd Suite P Vancouver, Washington USA is selling my Recycled Coffee Bean Bag Totes!! $22.50 and that even includes tax. I can hardly believe it.

Finished a fun little knitted shrug and getting ready to start a new drawing...

When the creating bug strikes it just keeps on biting!

remember to do something creative today!

I love that photo of a bird! Good luck with the CSS I'm totally impressed by that kind of creativity, I've never gotten past some pretty basic HTML.

I'm impressed - I doubt I could learn to do CSS! Ok, maybe I could, but would I actually try? LOL And congrats on getting your tote bags out there for sale! I live in Vancouver, I may have to go check those out :)

Thanks all for the great comments! The menus are working and the template is all done and I'm working on getting the pages all updated!
