Draw Paint Craft 15 Minutes a Day

The path to regular creativity is to simply draw, paint, craft, or whatever interests you, for 15 minutes almost every day. If you schedule the time, and plan for it – even if you are busy – you should be able to manage 15 minutes of creative time most days.

These brief creative periods reinforce your creative priorities, and allow you to get in the creative mindset – which will lead to more creativity, and longer creative session when time allows.

Carving out 15 minutes of creative time says, “This is important to me.” And it is calming and meditative. As you work creative ideas and plans may form – write down your ideas!

Regular creativity opens you up to inspiration, even during other parts of your day.

Designing and formatting my own book is surreal!

Creative Exploration
After 20+ years as a graphic designer, it’s surreal to be designing and formatting my own book. As I format the headings, subheadings, insert images, etc., I’m revisiting the copy and I’m so excited to share the content and message of the book. Creative Exploration – is a step by step six week process for introducing regular creativity into your life – exploring mediums, finding inspiration, focusing on projects, and welcoming the joy that comes from creating. I developed the process based on the creative journey I went through, and shared on this blog.

It all started with my first post back in December 2013, when I expressed my desire to be creative on a regular basis. Back then, I didn’t think that much about art mediums or subjects, I just wanted to be creative, and to explore what that would look like for me.

Creative Exploration includes many of creative tips I’ve learned over the last five years. One of the most important ones – creativity is for everyone.

Do you wish you could be creative? You can! Do you wish you could do it more often? You can! Do you wish you could find “your thing?” Creative Exploration is for you. Learn more about Creative Exploration: A Six Week Process for Introducing Regular Creativity into your Life by clicking here.
