Creative Every Day Theme for October: Healing

September 29th, 2013, Comments (6)

At the end of each month I will announce the totally optional theme for the following month. For the month of October 2013, the theme will be Healing.

As always, this month's theme for the Creative Every Day Challenge is totally optional. Use it if it inspires you, continue being creative every day in your own way if it doesn't, or do something in between. You can sign up for the 2013 Creative Every Day Challenge anytime. More info can be found here and the sign-up page is here.

I'll be posting about the theme throughout the month on the blog to help keep you inspired. You can use the posts here for jumping off points or interpret the theme in your own creative way. If you need some suggestions, here are a few ideas to get you started. You could:

  • *Work through an area of your life that needs healing in art.  
  • *Find a quote that has helped you heal, write it out, decorate it, hang it where you will see it.   
  • *Write out any grief or pain you are holding on to.    
  • *Bring life into your space with fresh fall flowers.     
  • *Help a friend heal by sharing your creativity.    
  • *If your body needs healing, find creative ways to care for yourself.    

How to use the CED themes:

If you're feeling creatively stuck or blocked at any point during the month, use the theme as a source of inspiration to get you moving. Feel free to focus on the theme in your creative activities for the entire month or as much as you'd like.

Using the theme is entirely optional for CED participants. Use it if it inspires you, ignore it if it doesn't. I'll be sharing posts throughout the month around the theme (among other things) to get you thinking about how to incorporate it into your life. I'd love to hear how you use the theme in your creative world.

And have fun with it!
