Then learn how to shift your attention away from your spouse; your colleague; your boss; or product, and towards "The Creative Spaces In Between" which is the place where all changes happen and development and innovative thinking occur.
Taking the artistic universe and especially tile mosaic decorations as its starting point, the book offers a unique combination of autobiography and positive thinking together with personal development and four concrete methods for working with creativity.
On top of this you discover why it is so vital to have the courage to follow the feeling of flow and pursue your passion in life, and you experience how crisis and hardship can be used constructively in a creative process.
The book helps people develop their creative abilities, and in the process they are lifted up and get ready to move further on in their lives.
Let yourself be inspired and motivated by a positive philosophy of life - spiced with entertaining anecdotes and lots of colorful illustrations of the artist's works of art.
The simple, creative tools offered in the book can give you an infusion of energy in your everyday life as well as make you more conscious about being creative in your own life.
- Where do new ideas come from?
- How can crisis and hardships create creativity and innovation?
- What does it mean to step into "The Creative Spaces in Between"?

Author, speaker and mosaic-artist, Marie Elisabeth A. Franck Mortensen, takes her vast experience gained from the creative world and couples it with the art of creating everyday life. Included in the book is a wide number of illustrations, which exemplify and support the artist’s experiences from working with the concept of "The Creative Space In Between".
It is important that we all keep in mind that the act of creating is not a right reserved for artists.
We all create art in our own lives. Keep in mind that you are not only the artist but also the paint brush, the colors, the canvas, and the painting which you are creating.
No matter where you are or what you are dealing with. ...
It Is All About Attitude; New Structures – New Space Between; The Wishing Corner; Creativity Legalizes Embracing The Whole Human Being; From Off-Days to Yes-Days; “The Connecting Thread Of Fate” And The Feeling Of Flow in Life; Creating Spaces in Between Your Thoughts; Everything Beyond; The Good Story.
For many years, as an artist, I have made a wide range of assignments with mosaic decorations, and I have cracked and broken thousands upon thousands of tiles in an ongoing immersion in the endless possibilities which are found in creating new structures, new “Creative Spaces In Between”.
The vast experience gained from the creative world, I have coupled with the art of creating everyday life, and in this book I invite you on a journey into a different universe of thinking. Here you will learn how to shift your attention away from your spouse; your colleague; your boss; or product, and towards “The Creative Spaces In Between”, where all change, development and innovation takes place.
Creativity became the key element in my life and to my personal development; as the only stable thing I found in work situations, as well as in times of sorrow or happiness, and as a governing force which will never die.
This book tells you why it is so vital to have the courage to follow your flow and pursue your passion in life, even in times marked by sickness and death.
This book stems from a deeply felt wish to be of benefit to other people as much as possible and to pass on knowledge of creativity and a positive philosophy of life.
Professionally, the book offers you four different methods of working with creativity, which you can use as an inspiration in your own life:
1) You can create new structure from something old
2) Creativity legalizes embracing the Whole Human Being
3) How to make use of the conscious creative force
4) “The Magical Ten Minutes”
It is my intention to try to simplify the comprehension of art and creativity, in this way turning it into something useful and easily applicable in your everyday life, including the important task of creating a family.
The book is filled with small but relevant anecdotes from my own life, illustrating how I myself have worked with creating a home; a job; a relationship; products; coping with crisis situations, and so on.
The book has been a long time coming, and it is my wish that it can give you inspiration and ideas when going about your daily chores, and more so that it gives you a consciousness about and comprehension of “The Creative Spaces In Between”, which is the place where all changes happen and development and innovative thinking occur.
I have included a number of illustrations, which exemplify and support my experiences from working with the concept of “The Creative Spaces In Between”.
