new goal: 300 days of creativity

I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but everyone seems to be doing these wonderful and inspiring 365 day art challenges.
Everyone that is, like these amazing artists- Pam Garrison, Jennifer Orkin Lewis, and Sonya Penn.
Through much thought, I’ve decided to “KIND OF” jump on the bandwagon!


I really try to set goals that I think I can achieve. With travel and life, I figured there would be NO STINKING WAY I could actually meet the 365 day challenge. Therefore, I’ve decided go for a 300 days of Creating challenge. Attainable and yet still challenging.

The 300 days of Creating can be made up of time spent doodling, painting, crafting, sewing etc. Just as long as I’m creating something. Cause to be honest, I can go weeks without doing anything creative. Then I almost fear it as though I’m fearing a workout. Scared I’ve lost my touch and not knowing how and where to start again. I’m hoping that with this challenge I will be in better “creative shape” and that I will have a more productive and artistic year.
