Community Tuesdays: Have somethin to say? We have FORUMS now!
Creating Your Community, Colorado's Social Archive, now has forums! Start a conversation with us! We want to hear about your garden (in the Denver Gardens & Urban Farms community,) or why not tell us what you really think about graffitti (in the Denver Street Art community)?
Community Tuesday: Share your garden
It's beautiful out! Put your green thumbs in some soil and then share your photos. The Denver's Gardens & Urban Farms community would love to see them and hear your stories.
Community Tuesday: Things are warming up!
It seems like things are starting to warm up again! Why not have a picnic at Cheesman Park and tell us about it? We have a new community dedicated to Cheesman Park on the Creating Your Community website. Won't you share a park story with us?
Community Tuesday: Spring is in the air!
The trees are blooming and flowers are pushing their way up! Creating Your Community has a new Denver's Gardens & Urban Farms community so you can share your garden love with other garden lovers.

Best of the Box: Theodora Mussey Scrapbook
For this week's long overdue Best of the Box, I discovered a lovely scrapbook by Theodora Mussey, a piano teacher at the University of Denver. Compiled between 1900 and 1902, the Mussey scrapbook contains a number of clippings including programs from Denver music recitals and concerts, church bulletins, invitations and travel memorabilia.
Best of the Box: Mildred Biddick
For the second installment of Best of the Box, I found a lovely box full of beautiful pieces of art. Discovered in one tiny acid-free box is our Mildred Biddick collection.
