Take The Creativity Challenge and Let Your Creative Urge Surge...
These days, I’m pressed for TIME to create. And I’m guessing that’s your problem, as well. I know, I’m supposed to design stuff all the time, right? But truly, even though I do work on creative projects, life gets crazy.
I often come up with a concept, but struggle to get past the initial set-up stage. Once I take that giant step, I’m good to go.
For example… I bought paint in April for a project I’ve been wanting to do. I wish I could say it was enormous, complicated, and time consuming, but it wasn’t. For a while, I couldn’t get beyond opening the paint tray. I’d stare at the luscious colors within the tiny paint pans. It took a good month before I put brush to paper and splashed those colors everywhere.
Can you relate to this?
- You want to be creative but the hours in your days seem to fly by.
- When you have free time, instead of taking that time for an opportunity to fulfill that creative need you have, you usually end up doing housework or another job on your to-do list.
- You procrastinate, and by waiting until the end of the day to work on your projects, you find you’re too exhausted to be creative.
BUT… You’re a creative person who has a lot of creativity within you. Skills you want to learn, and techniques you want to try, if only you had the time, right?
If you feel like you’re running in place, you’re not alone. Think about what can you do to get off that time consuming path!
I asked myself that very question earlier this year. It wasn’t long before I realized I could give up 15-20 minutes a day to work on my artistic projects. In that month alone, I managed to undertake creative projects that I thought I’d never have time to finish.
- I began designing a Zentangle borders book (and now it only needs a cover)
- I came up with an idea and layout for online classes with videos
- I recorded a few free YouTube videos
- And best of all, I finally got my creative mojo back
Setting aside 20-30 minutes of creativity a day ended up being just what I needed, and it might be what you need, too. Instead of being driven by guilt for taking personal time to create, you can learn to gift yourself segments of time to be artful.
Sounds too good to be true, doesn’t it? It’s not, believe me, it’s gratifying when you make it happen.
To honor your interest in taking up my Creativity Challenge of 15-20 minutes a day for your own artfulness, I’ve designed a tiny art journal to help you track each of your daily creations. When you sign up for this challenge, you’ll receive a free PDF tiny art journal file to print out and use for your daily creations.
What’s super about this is… it’s all about YOU. Your age, artistic skill level, and income aren’t important
All you have to do is set aside 15-20 minutes each day for the next few weeks to work on creative projects (and maybe add your thoughts, too). It’s an opportunity to unwind and have a private, artful, conversation with yourself and sure beats mumbling under your breath. There’s also no wrong way of doing art for this challenge.
So sign up to receive your tiny art journal PDF. It will help inspire you and keep track of your art through the coming weeks. You’ll also receive an email from me each week with encouraging thoughts to help you on this tiny art journaling journey.
I hope you’ll take the challenge and enjoy the time you need to fulfill your creative urges. Before I go, I have a word or two of advice. Don’t buy a bazillion art supplies. Use what you have on hand or snatch supplies from your kids (art supplies). This is meant to be fun, a de-stressor (of sorts, if you will). Be happy, enjoy your tiny art journal, and luxuriate in your free time!
