October 2015’s Optional Theme: Magic

October 1st, 2015, Comments (1)

At the end of each month I will announce the totally optional theme for the following month. October's theme is Magic. I was inspired by Elizabeth Gilbert's latest book, Big Magic, which is a great read about creativity! 

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 2015 Creative Every Day Challenge anytime. More info can be found here and the sign-up page is here.

When time allows, I'll be posting about the theme 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:

  • *Check out Big Magic and get inspired!       
  • *Explore the magic of this month through decorations around your home.       
  • *Write freely about a time that felt magical to you.             
  • *Work with an image from a magical story (one of my favorites is the Harry Potter series!)    
  • *If there's a material or medium that feels magical to you, play with it this month or learn more about it.            

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!
