100 Creative Things to Do

100plusMaking things can be very calming, relaxing and therapeutic, a great way for you to lower the tension you feel from grief and stress. I came up with a list of over 100 creative things to do. So if you don’t have a creative hobby already just pick one and try it.

FYI:

In The Beginning God created. When God created Adam he said “Let’s make him in our own image.” At this point what do we know about God’s character? He was creative. It only stands to reason that at least one characteristic of being human is the desire and ability to create. The fourth chapter of the book of Genesis describes Adam’s grandsons as, one, being the father of all those who play music and the other as maker of all bronze and iron things.  I think it is very interesting.

About nball252

Hi, my name is Naomi, I am a Christian, certified aromatherapist. I also have an Associate Degree in Bible. I looked for books about aromatherapy from a Christian point of view and didn't find any, so I wrote one, The Aromatherapy Advocate. An introductory book for Christians on aromatherapy. I have one son whom I home schooled. I started using essential oils 10 years ago. I love the fragrances and I love the powerful benefits of using essential oils. I received my certificate about 10 years ago and have been teaching and writing about aromatherapy from a Christian perspective since then.
