So, I'd like to see what you creative people do, so please share!
I'll start with shrinky dinks of Simon's cat... easy to make and so much fun. I finished these off with a pin so you can wear them on your jacket or bag.

That looks great! I'm not creative at all so when you say "easy to make" I can only think "how do you make such a thing?" But you showed the Lykoi cat in another thread so I can always say my Simon's cat is a special new breed in the Netherlands:)

It's so easy! You buy shrink plastic in a craft store and some pens. You draw your stuff on the plastic, cut it out and then you bake them in your oven. That's when they shrink. It's childs play and really fun!

So awesome and creative. I have less than zero creativity, but love those that share what they do. The dominoes are fab. Now I want to try some resin coated jewelry stuffs. How does one learn? Is there a good how to website?

Forgot to mention, I started the resin jewelry making by pouring it in jewelry molds I bought. That's a bit easier and you can put almost anything in there...

Here is the cowl I have been working on. It is knit, crochet and the part at the bottom is Tunisian.
I loved the one shoulder sweater in the hunger games catching fire movie that katnis was wearing. So I thought I could make one. I need to treat the Tunisian so it doesn't roll. But almost finished for the cold weather.

Wow! Love it! That is one thing I don't do, knit. But my stepmother does, so once in a while I get some fabulous socks...

I don't have a picture, but my mom loves to paint rocks and is starting to make sphynx rocks!
Any rock you like, wash it and use acrylic paints to give it your own flair! :)
I love all these ideas!
I'd love to see those rocks! I've made some for my mother this summer. She keeps them on her patio. But I don't think it was my thing...

My friend has three Devon Rex cats and for her birthday I made a watercolor painting for her. I usually paint with oils so this was new to me. But I got hooked on watercolor and have done lots after this one... (the design is totally stolen...)

@Zab looks good!
I don't have the space for oils and got really into watercolor. I even started layering with gouache and sometime pastels.
