I love a good spa day, but I was stumped when this kid’s party idea hit my email.
Creative block + a tight deadline = the worst!
There are posts and books and entire courses about overcoming block, but my absolute favorite trick is to get out and about. Go for a walk, visit a museum or do what I do and wander around a store aimlessly.
This was a case for aimless wandering. With only a pink boa as a jumping off point, I headed to the Dollar Tree—my second favorite creative block defeater! Aisles filled with odds and ends and things you didn’t know you needed. All for only $1! Once I hit the beauty aisle I was unstuck: a glam, girly gals day.
Now that you know my creative block secrets, here’s my best party food tip: When crunched for time or out of ideas, cover with chocolate and sprinkles.
And serve mimosas.
