30 Days Of Creativity – June 29, 2013

DAY 29 – LAYERS

On the second to last day of our month of creativity the theme for today is LAYERS.

I’d like to expand that to LAYERS OF FRIENDS  for my creative project because when you really think about it, that’s what we all have. We have friends at work, friends at school, friends on-line, and even friends we find in books. We have friends that are just like us, and friends that are the total opposite from us. Then there are fantasy friends like Woody and Stan who have been featured in a number of my creative projects this year. I thought it was fitting to let them take a final bow in this salute to friendship.30DOC29-layers

WOODY: Thanks for being my friend and helping out in all the adventures we had this month Stan.

STAN: It was fun, Woody, like we were almost like being a Dynamic Duo.

WOODY: That we were, Stan. We were friends.

Counting your friends is like counting your blessings.

DAY 28 – PIE

Stan Demon takes center stage for the 28th day of creativity … mainly because he’s an expert on today’s theme PIE!

TAKE IT, STAN!DSCF0293

Stan: I like pie … both making and eating it. 

And in the summer my favorite is 

PERSONAL PBJ ICE CREAM PIE!

And its easy to make, too.  All you need are some individual sized pie tins, good crunchy peanut butter cookies, strawberry swirl ice cream and little meringue cookies.

First, crunch the PB cookies into crumbs and press them into the bottom of each pie tin as a crust.

Next, scoop the soft ice cream on top of the crust in each tin and smooth it out.

Finally, place one of those swirly meringue cookies in the middle of the ice cream.

Cover each pie tin with plastic wrap and return to the freezer until you’re ready to serve.

Its easy, its tasty, its cool!

Day 27 - NOTEBOOK

Without notebooks where would we be?

But then again, where are sometimes with notebooks?

A conundrum faced by the 30DoC Creativity Players on Day 27!

DSCF0271

Stan: Hey, where’s our script … and the sets?

Woody: All that’s here is this notebook with creative ideas … and today’s notes are very vague.

Stan: Maybe, there’s more on the next page?

Woody: But we’d have to  find someone tall who could turn the page over.

Werther: Don’t look at me, I’m a WANDERING WIZARD … not a basketball player.

Stan: Cue FINIS card!

DAY 26 – SEW

On June 28, 1969 at the Stonewall Inn in NYC the battle for Gay Liberation began with a riot against police harrassment. The next year the first Gay Pride Parades took place in New York City and several other cities around the country. The parades as well as the fight for equality has continued ever since.Stitch In TimeDay 26 – A Stitch In Time

Woody and Stan mend the tatters and tears of the Rainbow Bear as he gets ready for his 43rd Annual Pride Parade this weekend. Happy Pride Week to all the celebrants!

DAY 25 -AMPERSAND

AND … how do we express our creativity today?

How do you deal with &s?

How about a bit of fantasy … with Woody and his adventure buddy Stan Demon?

They’re tramping through the jungles of Africa, searching for King Solomon’s treasure … when all of a sudden …

THE AMPERSANDS STRIKE!

 DSCF0240Stan: Woody! Help! I’m being swallowed by a pool of amperSANDs … 

Woody: AND?

Stan: NO … & and & and if you don’t pull me out I’ll soon be your ex-budmtmd…

Could this be the end of Stan?

I doubt it, because there are still five more days left in June.

DAY 24 – GREEN

I’m going to be a bit more specific about the GREEN topic of today’s challenge …

And say FOLDING GREEN or GREENBACKS or BUCKS or

GREEN BACK DOLLAR BILLS!

Did you know that the life expectancy of a dollar bill is less than a year and a half?

Also it isn’t a paper dollar, it’s 75% cotton and 25% linen.

And while the dollar doesn’t go as far as it did when we were kids!30DOC-24-Green

FOLDING GREEN

It can still go a long way as a tiny elephant, a walking boot and a pilot’s wings!

30 DAYS OF CREATIVITY – DAY 23 / DRAGONS

DAY 23 – DRAGONS

History is filled with the tales of fearless dragon hunters …

From Saint George who used his trusty sword to slay the dragon,

To Skuba the Polish shoemaker who took on Smok Wawelski, a dragon who lived on a diet of Polish virgins, by cooking him from the inside out.

To this list of Fearless Dragon Hunters, I creatively add the names of Woody and Stan Demon.

FEARLESS DRAGON HUNTERS

STAN: Just what is a dragon, Woody?

WOODY: They’re just a figment of the imagination of  old writers of tales and legends before Hollywood invented the ZOMBIES.

STAN: So, what’s that green figment creeping up behind us?

DAY 21 – NOVEL

Now that’s a topic with a lot of meanings.

But when I think NOVEL, I just look up to the bookshelves that cover one entire wall of my office.

I built them myself, when the room officially became my bedroom.

And the books they’ve held have taken me to more worlds than I could ever hope to visit.DSCF0175HERE’S A NOVEL IDEA …

LET’S READ!
