The Creative Sandbox
1. There is no wrong
2. It doesn’t matter ifyou like it or hate it     what matters is joy          in the process
3. Think quantity,       not quality
4. Think tiny  (and daily)
5.        If you    don’t know  where to start,start anywhere
6. When in doubt, ask “What if..?”
7. When you get to a crossroads,     take the path you fear.
8. This is a gremlin-free zone                       you                       suck!
