    • 2.5 stars Ok short activity book about how to bring creativity into your life, which apparently involves a lot of stickers and vaguely New Agey sentiments I did like the directions page 61 for how to make a wee book from a single sheet of paper.


    • I read on a road trip this past weekend and oh my gosh I now have a full blown vision of how I would want to bring creatives together to art, love, laugh, cry, be


    • Este no es un libro precisamente para leer sino que sirve para experimentar y despertar la creatividad Me gusto mucho, principalmente porque habla de como podemos empezar a construir la vida que queremos si, se que suena a melcocha barata, pero realmente no lo es m s que un libro de autoayuda lo considero un libro optimista, que nos alienta a probar, a observar, a aventarnos a escribir, pintar, fotografiar y que no hay un momento adecuado para ello, cualquier momento es bueno y cualquier herrami [...]


    • This is really a cute little book with lots of fun ideas and tips to inspire and motivate That was my first impression Then i flipped through it again to jot down a few points i wanted to remember and found it was a bit than just a cute little bookYes, it has a lot of info i ve read in other books just look at the source pages in the back but it s nicely condensed and to the point I d recommend it to anyone who needs a pick me up, but has no time to read.


    • I like this one very much because its not just about being creative in the normal sense of the word but looking how life is lived and encouraging to step outside the box and experience it


    • I received this book for Christmas 2007 It is an enjoyable read I was somewhat disappointed that much of the information contained I d seen elsewhere with detail However, the exercises are inventive and lead to interesting self observations.


    • So fun Full of tips and activities for mindfulness and creativity Plus it comes with stickers Who doesn t need stickers



    • Another project book, only a bit girly this time Inspiring to do s, fun board game and a very helpful piece on how to make a living doing what you love




    • I love Keri Smith Her books are such joyful invitations to create every day and to live an authentic life of expression I think this is one of her first publications in what has now become kind of her own genre I recognize the seeds of ideas in this book that went on to sprout entire books on that topic later on So, I think because I have read her recent stuff first, this seemed a little jumbled to me as she is trying to squeeze a lot of ideas into one book But that being said, it is so sweet, [...]


    • Cute, fun, quick read, with lots of ideas and activities to try that I know I won t do, which is why I ve rated this book lower than it probably deserves One idea that really appealed to me was that of starting a Creative Women group, although I think creative is the wrong word for the group I d love to be a part of that would recharge me and feed my creative soul I know exactly which of the wonderful women I know would be invited, and they don t all know each other there would be pots of tea an [...]


    • Books 272 2014 I have read this books in one of bookstore near my offices It is actually great idea but it was already some old ideas that repackage into a new books i have done some activities when i was younger it is great books for someone who love doing something new and out of the box but for me a great books should be enrich my knowledge so that s why i just give 2,4 of 5 stars sorry


    • It s difficult for me to give 2 stars to one of Keri Smith s books but this one just doesn t hold a candle to books like How to Be an Explorer of the World which is one of the books I highly recommend for sparking creativity Keri has good ideas throughout the book but it doesn t seem as cohesive as her other books The book is in need of better editing It s a very fast read So I am still a fan of Keri Smith, but this isn t the book to get.


    • Longer review can be found here on my blog.A lovely quick read for those who want instant inspiration The activities are fun and not the usual things you d see in a book on creativity I love the voice Keri Smith writes with and I felt very connected to her stories and feelings Definitely one I ll pick up again and again when I m feeling down.


    • Having a creative block The great thing about this is that the exercises are very action oriented If you actually do them, they will probably get you inspired And the exercises are written in such a way as to be as easy or as complicated as you want them to be There s not a lot of description which is a good thing Sometimes it s a little too skippetty tra la la for me, but only sometimes, which is good for a book like this.


    • I m really enjoying this The book is full of activities for a playful life, including lots of fun cut out stuff, stickers etc So far, it s been really fun although it s surprisingly intimidating scribbling randomly in a journal, or making a pocket shrine I consider myself pretty creative but its hard to not think, is this just a waste of time


    • The idea behind this book is to have fun and do activities This as an idea is really interesting There are some cute freebies in the back of the book, for example cool postcards and cut outs Overall an ok Self Help Book but a couple of Smiths ideas were slightly cheesy Worth buying if you are young at heart



    • I do love multi dimensional books This one is fun but only for those who can remember how to be a kid again Its perhaps a bit on the girlie side so beware.The games and exercises are a great help with positive creativity.


    • Changed my life I adore the direction this book placed me in Keri Smith is a true gift of a writer She celebrates the littlest moments that get overlooked often and in turn creates a brand new perspective filled with creativity, imagination, love, light, and fun I will read anything she writes.


    • A brilliant inspiring and typical Keri Smith book Also a fantastic book for adults to reinvent life, or living up to our potential as creative beings with inspiring ideas for activities, funny pictures, cut outs, cards, or just a keepsake Loved it


    • This book is full of little ideas to live a positive and creative life But it wasn t those ideas that really won me over, it was all of the stickers, the postcards, and craft like things inside I love me some stickers.


    • miss esme asked for this at the bookstore, and when we didn t have it, i special ordered copies for both of us this is super fun to read, and has little things you can cut out, a declaration you can sign, and other fun stuff like how to start a creativity group.


    • FANTASTIC kick in the seat of the pants, creatively speaking Smith has so many wise and wonderful way to reignite the playful, productive spirit in us Read on and shine on Truly one of the best gift books I ve ever received Thanks you, M.S.


    • This book is a collection of ideas and activities to integrate creativity into your life It s a very quick read While I have yet to implement some of activities, I m certainly looking forward to it




    • Fun fun fun The exercises are simple per se, however, they really shatter your comfort zone Love a challenge
