You are encouraged to tweet your progress. I thought I would group together what I've been doing in a blog post or two - more for myself than anything else.
We were encouraged to think about one word that would describe our intention for the coming year. I know quite a lot of us do this anyway - in place of resolutions or to compliment them. I had already settled on my word for this year and that is Organisation. It's something I'm not very good at. I have a bad memory and a not very good grasp on time management. The internet is a huge distraction. I figure if I can organise my time, housework, work, internet time etc then that must surely equal more art time. That's the theory anyway. I have my own self appointed internet policeman in the form of Craig - it's working having someone question if I am on the internet productively or just wasting time. I don't want to waste time.
We were encouraged to compile a list of goals. No matter how big or small for the coming year, not think about how silly or not they were and just write them down. Display it somewhere prominent so that it will gee us on throughout the year. I've done mine on a white board so I can add to it as I think of things - along with my word. It's pinned slap bang in the middle of the wall above my desk, out in the shedio.
Talking of the shedio - it was time to "recharge my creative space!" Not before time either. It had been so cold out there that we had been using it as a second fridge over Christmas. Then afterwards everything just got dumped out there - my arty presents and it seemed like a few other things that people just couldn't be bothered to put away.
And now I have reclaimed my shedio. Happy bunny face.
I might not have finished the challenge within the week but I will carry on with it as, combined with the class I'm doing, I've already done more art in these first few weeks of January than I did in the last couple of months of 2013! Craziness!
Thanks for stopping by today :)
