10 Things I Need For Creativity
by Karrlin Bain

Assignments make me create works
I'm certain couldn't arrive
Assignments squeeze creative quirks
And bring new gifts alive

Chocolate makes me smile inside
It is a magic key
To stir up my creative life
Give chocolate to me

Sun~Light~Bulbs and Window Beams
A True Necessity
For Lighting up my happy mood
And Creativity

Pretty Brushes Paints and Such 
Inspire right away
Purple pens and table space
Make my creative day

Coffee has to be involved
From beginning to the end
So if you want me to create
Mocha coffee send

Time has to be my greatest need
Because enough there never is
So that is why someday
I'll run Full time creative Biz

Music or a Background Flick
Is necessary sound
And as I collect all of my faves
I've got the best around

Coffee and Time are so in need
I'll mention them again
For if they don't exist for me
Creating???... who knows when...

My family needs to back me up
Understand about my art
Without their kind loving support
I could never even start

My online friends are now a must
With them my true life thoughts I trust
The world has shrunk and become kind
As online creative friends I find

Please move through the
 AWESOME flying sisters BLOG HOP and go next to

p.s. Flying Sisters are a group of amazing women that I was in a class (by artist Kelly Rae Roberts) with last summer.  
***They have become such an important part of my life!

  8. As I am sipping my coffee (that I added some chocolate to), I am smiling and giggling reading your inspirational creativity poem. It's utterly brilliant! I love it. I really like the earth graphic with the computer circling it. You rocked the blog circle post!

  9. What a fun way to write about what you need to be creative Karrlin. A lovely list. I love how you play with words when you write.

  10. If I could, just for a minute,
    say how much I love this list
    and everything that's in it.
    Then you would know,it made me beam
    from ear-to-ear and then, I had to
    sip a cup of joe with lots 'n lots o'cream.

  11. Oh you're just plain brilliant ! I love this, and I just love how you've presented it. You made me smile ..Tx.
