30 Reasons to Participate

Hello, friends.  Here is a great list of 30 reasons  to participate in 30 Days of Creativity which starts tomorrow, put out by the folks at 30 Days of Creativity.  I wrote here about how I’m adapting the concept so I can do it without making myself nuts.
I encourage you to participate at least on some level.  And remember it isn’t “Create a perfect masterpiece every day for 30 days” but rather it is to “Encourage people to create stuff (anything) every day for 30 days”.  June is suggested by anytime you want is also ok.  See?  Create anything.  Toss a nice salad.  Doodle on your To Do list. Put together an interesting outfit.
Encourage is a great word.  Give support, confidence, or hope to someone.

Garner a sense of accomplishment.

I’m packing a bag of craft supplies because Rem and I are going down the coast for a few days to celebrate his birthday and I’m bringing crafting along. We are going to stay in a hostel at a light house, visit Half Moon Bay and see the elephant seals at Año Nuevo State Park.

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. I hope you will have a great time with Rem celebrating his birthday! 🙂 good packing and great crafting! 🙂 you will more inspiration when you will come back I’m sure! 🙂

    • Weekend was wonderful, thank you. Rem and I both enjoyed his birthday. Crafting a little challenging in a very small room with a table that folded out from the wall and wasn’t quite level. It was on the high side too, so I sat on two pillows to make up some of the difference. I’m not entirely thrilled with my Day 2 page spread but it’s done, which counts for a lot!

  2. Yes, it does count for a lot! you put the effort when you didn’t have an appropriate work space! 🙂 YAY! for day 2 !!! 🙂 glad you had a great weekend! 🙂

    • Thanks for the encouragement and validation! Most of the time when I take a second, fresh look at a project I’m pleased with the results. Sometimes, in the middle of working on it, I am unhappy with something. In this case, taking a second look at Day 2 and I didn’t like it as much, but it is only one day out of the 30 days, so I’m not gonna worry about it.
