Creative Every Day
I'm going to do the Creative Every Day Challenge thing this year. At first I thought I would hold off...commitment etc. But when I thought about it more, I realized that I always have something creative going on - and this will help me look at my daily life in a different way. Was I doodling at that meeting...or was I being creative? Am I just watching TV or am I knitting a sweater and being companionable and staying in the room while some sport show is on. You get the idea. This gives new meaning, and focus, to redoing the bird house gourds that have been hanging from the trees for two years.
On another note, here is my annoyance for today. I did a picture in my sketchbook and I decided to give it to my nephew for Christmas. The sketchbook cover says "11x14 sheets", and my first annoyance is that I didn't actually measure the pages. When I was at the stationary store last night, I bought a frame that was for 11x14. All sounds good right? But when I got home I found that the sketchbook pages are actually 14.5" x 10.5". How odd is that? The 14.5 is OK - I can trim the piece, but the 10.5" - very odd. So it looks odd in the frame...I'll have to figure out how to matt it so that it looks decent. Moral of story....measure first, buy second (to eliminate "return things to store" third.
