What’s with the Sandbox?

Like many people, our founder, Melissa Dinwiddie, spend her young adulthood believing she was not creative. Art, music — those were for other people.

But then in her late 20s, she started doing arts and crafts as a way to procrastinate. One thing led to another, and before she knew it she was in business as an artist and calligrapher.

Making a living from art (in expensive Silicon Valley, no less) increased her creative confidence, but it also led to burnout. Art became just a job, and unless she was creating for a client, Melissa was deeply mired in creative block, never doing the kind of joyful, carefree exploration that got her into art in the first place.

She was a professional artist, living a profoundly un-creative life, and pretty miserable.

So after many years of this stuckness, Melissa finally figured out how to blast through the roadblocks.

The secret? Play!

What her creative spirit needed, she realized, was to be like a little kid in a sandbox: exploring, making messes, unconcerned with the outcome.

The metaphor of the creative sandbox was born.

For several years Melissa helped other stuck creatives regain access to their creativity. She blogged, taught courses, ran retreats, hosted a podcast, and wrote a book expanding on how to live the Creative Sandbox Way™.

When she turned her focus to helping teams and organizations blast through creative roadblocks and build cultures of creativity, Creative Sandbox Solutions™ was the obvious choice.

If you’ve got creative roadblocks, we’d love to help you blast through them.
