Creative Every Day 2011–Yeah!
Who knew that it would be the year it was–no one, of course! But one thing is certain 2010 was a year of change, possibilities, hopes, fears, and amazingly, healing. During November of 2010 and 2009 I set out to participate in Creative Every Day Month. It helps me refocus. But November is kinda late in the year for a refocus. The Creative Every Day Challenge, developed by Leah Piken Kolidas always seemed too daunting. I even attempted the challenge this year, but I feel I was not always present in my own creative-nest. But there were changes and shifts through my 2010 that have given me confidence to be Creative Every Day in 2011!
During 2011, on the Monday check-ins at Leah’s website I am going to reflect on the past week. I will also have a post every Monday here at Create with Kim. This time my nest will be hatching ideas and projects.
After some reflection today I came up with a list :-) of things I did this past year. This list makes me hopeful for 2011.
