Welcome to bcreative2day. For a while now I’ve been thinking about starting a blog that might inspire creativity and chronicle things that inspire me in my art and my days. During a recent week in Paris with a dear friend, Holly, I found my inspiration to start this blog. Must have been all that wine and cheese, cheery chatting — and incredible art and architecture — that opened up my mind.
What will this blog be about? It’s going to be about things that make me smile … things that inspire an A-ha! hand clap … things that are cool, or designed well, or simply gorgeous … things that, I hope, are just plain worth sharing and that might make you smile, and spur your own creativity, too.
So, I start with packing tape:
Now, this is no ordinary tape — it’s tape fit for royalty! I bought it at Le Bon Marche in Paris, so it came at a regal price (14 Euros). But I had to have it, because it spoke to my artsy-fartsy soul. And because Holly walked me all the way to the store to show me their glorious paper arts department. I needed a souvenir. Plus, at 60 meters (175+ feet) it will keep me busy for a while.
The tape is produced by Donkey Products out of Germany, but after a look at their website, I’ve discovered they are simply the creators of products that creative geniuses come up with, not a site from which you can buy. So, thank you to the creative genius behind this tape. And, anyone reading, please let me know if you have a selling source for this or other cool tapes, and I’ll post it. Coming soon … a creation of mine inspired by this tape!
