But I haven't come across too many blogs written by men about how they express themselves creatively. This could be because men are being creative and not writing about it. Or that I am just not finding blogs written by men because I am drawn to blogs written by like-minded women. I shall have to ponder this further...
I also received a message today from a man, who writes for an online magazine, asking what kind of articles I would like to read, based around creativity. He has read my blog. He noted in his message that he thought my blog was "quite girly but my partner loves it."
This got me thinking. I know my blog is pink. And I have an unhealthy pre-occupation with cupcakes. But is it really all that "girly"?
I looked at it tonight with objective eyes.
Who am I kidding?
It's pink. Covered in cupcakes. Has lots of pictures of pretty things.
I guess it could be judged as "girly". I shall call it feminine. No, I won't. That word makes me dry heave a little bit. I think I'll just settle for pink and cupcakey.
Once I get going with a thought process, I tend to run with it. So, I found myself wondering if there were any men out there reading my blog who were struggling with the pink, cupcakeyness of it all. I have received lots of positive feedback from creative ladies. But only from two creative men. And one of those creative men was my Significant Other.
So, in honour of all the creative men out there who might be reading this blog and struggling with the pink cakeyness of it all.
This one's for you.
I've been expanding my creative boundaries. I've had a busy week. I've been to Abbey Road Station.
I then visited several other lovely places
I've been to a model railway show!
Here are some close-ups of his creative genius.
The model of Abbey Road and the connecting station really made me smile.
Do you recognise who is crossing?
But for British creativity at it's best, my favourite model was this one.
