the creative family

"living a creative life is made all the more fulfilling and rewarding when we are creating with, for, or because of others." -amanda soule

i read this book over the weekend. loved every page of it. it's not about making your house craft-central. it's about encouraging your kids to discover everything they can and be creative in any way they know how. it's about building strong relationships with your children by doing meaningful activities together because we all know that watching tv is not 'quality family time.' i just loved it. that's all.
