30 Days of Creativity

Have you heard about the 30 Days of Creativity project? I found it via twitter, like I find most things these days. It is run by @createstuff and the premise, according to their website, is:

30 Days of Creativity is a social initiative encouraging people to create stuff (anything) every day for 30 days in June.
Your brain is like a muscle. When you exercise it, it gets stronger.

This immediately appealed to me and I thought, why not join? It should inspire me to do some of the things I often think of doing.... then never get around to actually trying. As I've been pondering possible projects, I realized that I am fairly creative in my daily life already -- but, I value everyday creativity highly and try not to get locked into a grey routine, by consciously trying new activities especially around writing & books, as is probably the case for most of my readers ;)

(I've even written a journaling workbook about everyday creativity for my business, Four Rooms Creative Self Care).

I'll be sharing a bit about my activities this month so be prepared for some not-strictly-bookish posts to come...although many of my ideas do revolve around bookish themes, naturally.

What about you? Do you have a favourite form of creativity? What is it? (photography, painting, dollmaking, sewing, cooking, music, writing??) Are you thinking about joining in on the 30 Days of Creativity Project?


  1. This is intriguing. I may have to join you ...

  2. Thanks so much for posting about this. I'll have to see but I probably don't have time to join now. I do find it really intriguing, though, and will keep it in mind for later.

  3. Bridget - you'd be a shoo-in for it with all your projects! :)

    Marie - The time thing is certainly an issue, so I am not pushing myself to do crazy huge projects. Just wee little things to cheer up my day :)

  4. What a great idea! It's a good way to get people inspired to do something creative and different. Good luck!
