Every day we play with a creative challenge. What we create doesn’t have to be grand. It doesn’t have to be perfect. We aim to stretch our creative muscles, be playful, and have fun! Every day we take a little journey with some unexpected turns. That’s the beauty of creativity. If you just let it, it will fill you with wonder. The Challenge Our creative challenge today is made of the following set. If you are familiar with the creomondi building blocks, use the set to explore, imagine, and create.

Our goal is to create a Photograph inspired by the things we discover during our creative exploration. If you read this guideline carefully, you will notice that you can create a photo at another place and time — you can even stage one. … Read More

This might require some explanation: how is that associated with the Seed. Well, these cardboard cylinders caught my eyes even before I thought of the Seed. But a second later … Read More
