A long time ago, I read that creativity is about making connections.  We have a need and a set of resources.  Creativity is simply taking the resources and making connections between them to meet the need.

It helps a lot if you're willing to take chances and try something that seems silly or stupid at first glance.

This, believe it or not, is a flower girl basket.  Look again.  See it?

This creative solution arose from a need (flower girl basket) and a pile of gathered resources lying on my dining room sideboard.  Honestly, I was just fooling around when I picked up a random piece of thrift-store china and a length of twine left over from another wedding.

But the bride loved it.

And there you have it.  A flower girl basket like none other.
