A New Year::Blank Canvas

My goal for 2012 is to put myself on paper.

For me, that means finding time everyday to use my creativity toward something tangible. Yes, you could say I am already doing that, with photography, food (aka my day job), and the crafting and artwork that I do from time to time. But the truth is that I spend more time thinking about it than actually doing it. My head is full of thoughts, and I keep getting distracted; I canโ€™t keep up. It needs to become part of my daily routine.

So, to be short but sweet: Turn off the computer and be more productive.

Obviously I have to work at the technical parts of drawing and painting, so I have started working in a sketchbook. I have some great ideas in my mind that I would like to put together, be it through painting or embroidery. Part of the battle is to JUST DO IT. So bear with me, I need practice. Iโ€™d love to hear if you are working on something outside of your comfort zone. Share in the comments, if you like!

Two great posts about creativity in daily life:
