12 Creative Things To Make & Do – Sei kreativ

December 16, 2014

I’m working with the new Pinterest headquarters in Berlin (weee!) on an amazing campaign and it includes putting together some pinboards for them. One is all about Creativity and it’s called Sei kreativ. You can see it here but I want to share 12 creative things to make and do below. These are definitely some creative and inspiring ideas. I really love the twinkle twinkle hand lettering on the glass cabinet. I have some white glass markers and a glass cabinet so I’m going to totally try that this week and Instagram it for ya (Follow me if you’d like @decor8).

Aren’t these great ideas? I thought so too. Tomorrow I have a lovely share for you from a student that my friend met in one of her classes recently far, far away. I can’t wait to introduce you to this very creative, amazing woman and her photos and a short interview, too. See you tomorrow.
