30 Day Creative Challenge – Day 1

Winter is kicking my butt. I’m ready for it to leave. It’s zapping my creativity, my inspiration, and my motivation to do anything. So I’m going to do what I usually do when I come up on a road block, I’m going to find a way around it. 

For the next 30 days I’m going to do a Creative Challenge. Each day I will find some way to be creative and share it with you. It pushes me to do something creative even when I don’t want to because I’ve put it out there, and now I’m accountable. I’m hoping that doing something over and over again (even if it’s just being creative for a few hours a day) will create a habit to make time for creativity. 

I challenge you to join me; or at least join me in some. Feel free to share your creations with me at https://www.facebook.com/pages/Break-the-Rules-Live-your-Authentic-Life/381526961904428. I’d love to see them!! 

To start off the challenge, I’m calling for you to go into nature and find something to be creative with. I went on a “hunt” with my kiddo in search for rocks that we could turn into Happy Monster Rocks. We collected rocks, painted them, and put on happy monster faces. We may go hide them around the neighborhood for people to find! 

A few other options….do some leaf rubbings, create a piece of art with found objects, or even just spend a few minutes finding shaping in the clouds. 




About strokeofred

I am from Kansas and I have traveled all over the world. I am an artist, and I have a business brain. I love skirts and tennis shoes. I like to get dirty and ride motorcycles. I am sensitive and I can be mean. I love nature, and believe in protecting it. I love to laugh, and feel better after a good cry. I can be stubborn and impatient. I am constantly growing. I am open and free. I look to be inspired and love to inspire. I play guitar and secretly want to play drums. I have a puppy that brings me great joy. I love hugs, cuddling, holding hands...and wrestling. I love the mountains and the beach. I have to make a pilgrimage to the ocean at least twice a year to balance myself. I believe in balance in all things. Traveling is a passion, and meeting interesting people from all over the world is the perk! I have small town values, and big city dreams. I love beer, hate wine. I believe that what you put out comes back. I believe and live by the belief of treating others like you want to be treated. I enjoy stimulating conversation, and a good sense of humor. Caffeine is my drug of choice, and coffee over chess or good conversation is my luxury. I am strong but sometimes feel small. I strive to be my authentic me.
