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 can’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. I’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:
