Creativity, as we define it, comes in many forms. It can be as quick and easy as a beautifully prepared meal for a group of close friends, or it can be as complex as fabricating an art installation entirely out of 3D printed geodes and LED lights. The key to this is one simple thing: We are ALL born creative.
