This 30 day creative challenge—2030make—has been made into a class that you can take any time you’re feeling the need to get back into your creative groove. Join here!
I don’t have a lot of TIME to create these days. And I’m guessing you don’t either. I know, I know, I’m a craft blogger so I’m supposed to be making things all the time, right?
But the truth is, even though I love to work on creative projects, life is busy. I’ll make things for this blog but struggle to get past the idea stage for myself.
Case in point: I bought yarn last October for a scarf that is still only half-way finished. I wish I could say that it is because it is a complicated pattern but the truth is, I keep forgetting about it. And let’s not even talk about my daughter’s photo book. She is a year younger in photo album years.
Do you relate?
- You want to make things but the days seem too short.
- When you do have time, you usually procrastinate and find some random organization project to do.
- You wait until the end of the day to work on your projects and then find you’re too tired.
You’re a creative person who has a lot of ideas of projects you want to make, skills you want to learn, and techniques you want to try. But you don’t have the time. I hear you.
So what’s a creative to do?
Well, I thought it would be fun to create a challenge where we set aside 20 minutes a day for the next 30 days to work on our projects. Any creative project will do.
I’m going to be working on that scarf, the photo album, and the illustrations for my upcoming creative retreat workbook. (I need variety just in case I get bored with one project. :))
Do you think that we could possibly start and finish some things this month?!
Maybe . . .
- You have an eBook you’ve been wanting to write,
- An art journal that needs some love,
- Some fabric and a pattern that are still waiting to be transformed,
- Or . . . a myriad of other projects!
Sign up and you’ll receive:
- A printable workbook where you can brainstorm your goals, write out your reward, mark off each day on a calendar, and color in a piece of the sun after each day’s creating time,
- Four weeks of simple lessons to encourage you to keep going.
- Eleven recorded Facebook Live sessions from the live version of our challenge!
Workbook + Encouragement = Awesome! (Right?!)[h_quotes photo_url=”https://littlegirldesigns.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/AlyceHeadshot.jpg” photo_alt=”Alyce” name=”Alyce” blog_name=”Blossom Heart Quilts” blog_url=”http://www.blossomheartquilts.com/”]
The #2030make challenge was exactly what I needed to get started on writing my eBook, DIY Block Design. It helped me take that first, scary step, and before I long, I found myself spending a lot longer than 20 minutes as I got hooked on the process! Purposely dedicating just 20 minutes per day is an achievable goal, and will help anyone beat the “I don’t have time” blues.[/h_quotes]
Honestly, life is too short to not create things. Would you like to join me?
By the way, if you’re not sure what you would work on during #2030make, visit my Crafts & DIYs | To Make board on Pinterest. Most of the crafts I pin to that board are easy to make and would be perfect for this challenge.
20 minutes. 30 days. What will you make?
Let’s do this!
P.P.S. Taking 20 minutes a day to create is one of the ways you can give yourself a personal retreat. No, really! I share how you can make this a reality as well as how to create a longer retreat in my creative retreat workbook on Amazon.
