It finally happened. The ambitious idea of a creative a day surrendered to the hectic schedule that is my life. If you think about having to set aside time for a creative a day, the task can sound daunting. There was a secret thought lingering in my head leading up to the busiest weeks of my work year, that I perhaps would not have time for my Instagram posts or creating. Luckily I was busy enough to be distracted from thinking about not being productive for my 365 project. Looking at the glass half full, I did make it through more than a month of creatives a day, which is more than I can say for last year! That’s the beauty of this project… Keeping your own personal pace and interpretation without the pressure. My 365 is rebuilding my crafters spirit, which is plenty to be thankful for! So here are another weeks worth of creatives that are behind, yes, but nonetheless made with love! Happy and creative week to you all!
Day 29: Can you make a disguise and fool anyone? “They’ll Neva Know!”
Day 30- Work with toys or even work with kids!
The heart balloon and monkey were made by a balloon artist at a fair, I was his “assistant” in handing him the next balloon he needed. Most rewarding after seeing the smile on that little girls face!
Day 31- Make a path for someone to follow and invite people to try it out.
Chalking on a sidewalk. Instead of physically making a path this prompt spoke a little different to me, the paths we take in life and the one I want to take. In the simple, poetic words of Bob Dylan “May you stay, forever young.”
Day 32-Create something that will dissipate but displays quickly like soap, smoke, butter, etc. “Smile like you mean it.”
Day 33-Use pens as your tools today. A hoop earring and pens turned into a “pendelear” lampshade.
Day 34- Use wire today, thin gauge wire, paper clips even.
Two wire hangers with a side of heart.
