2010 Creative Every Day Challenge
December 2nd, 2009
The second year of the Creative Every Day Challenge is wrapping up and I'm getting ready to launch into a beautiful new year of creativity, community, inspiration, and sharing in the 2010 Creative Every Day Challenge! So exciting!
If you're new to the challenge, here's a little information about it:
Creativity is meant in the broadest sense, so it doesn't have to be something art related. Your creative acts could be in cooking, taking pictures, knitting, doodling, writing, dancing, decorating, singing, playing with your kids, brainstorming ideas, gardening, or making art in the form of collage, paint, or clay...or whatever!
You do not have to post every day! I know for myself that having to post every day for a year would be too much. You can post about your creativity in whatever form you like, whether that be once a day, a few times a week, once a week, or once a month. Do what works for you!
This is a low pressure challenge, with the idea of bringing more creativity into our lives. I will not be the creativity police. I hope that we can all find ways, simple and grand to express our creative selves. Have fun with it!
Once again, this year I'll be doing a (totally optional) monthly theme that you can use to inspire your creativity throughout the month or you can ignore it and do your own thing! Like last year, every Monday, I'll have a check-in post with a Mr. Linky widget, where you can leave a link to your blog post (or posts) from the week. I'll also be posting regularly with my own work, things that are inspiring me, ways to play with the monthly theme, and interviews with amazing creative people. Plus, I'll be throwing in some fun surprises!
Themes: Last year, I had all the themes planned out way in advance. This year, I've got most of the themes planned, but would love your input. What themes would you like to see? You can see all of 2009's themes here.
Sign-Up: In order to keep the sign-ups more organized this year, I'm going to be using a sign-up form. This will also allow me to get in touch with everyone with any important announcements or updates. I don't plan to send out group emails that often, most announcements will happen on the blog, but this will make it easier to be in touch.
Simply fill out the form below to the best of your ability, then check your email, and click the link provided to confirm your sign-up. The details I'm asking for below will help me know how to list you in the list of participants which will go up in my blog's sidebar later this month.
Although I won't be putting up the 2010 list in my sidebar until the end of the month, I appreciate getting the sign-ups early, so I can build the list over time instead of all at once.
Check out the Creative Every Day Challenge info page for more information about the challenge, how to participate, and details about how to post an the logo in your blog's sidebar.
I'm thrilled to be starting another year of creating with you!
