"Creativity is the defeat of habit by originality."
This year has been a real downer for me and in an effort to revive my creative side I have started a daily creative journal. One creative project per day for as long as I can keep it up, which I hope is a long time.
Creative Day 1
Keeping it simple and using only what I have on hand I made a simple fabric postcard, "Today is the Beginning", a reminder of things to come.
When I finished with the postcard I decided a handmade envelope would be a good way to complete today's creativity project.
The postcard can be hand cancelled at the post office but I rather put mine into an envelope to make sure that it doesn't get dirty and if any embellishments are added they won't get pulled off or damaged.
This is the first of what I hope to be many projects and I hope to focus on my quilting more than anything. There are many techniques that I am anxious to try out and doing them in smaller projects will help me decided which ones I want to explore more deeply.
Please feel free to leave a comment, or give a suggestion as to any projects or techniques that might be fun and interesting to try out in a small project.
