366 Days of Creativity Week in Review: 4.1.16-4.7.16
Creating everyday, whether or not you feel like it.
I guess it makes sense some days I would really like what I create and some days feel like I have no idea really where I'm going or I do something and don't really love it.
But maybe if I never created or created only sporadically I would never get to the ones I love.
Day 92 with the empty room and colorful distractions calling outside. I loved it. And that was one that came easy. Started building the room and it just came to me about the outside and the glass actually came up as I didn't have a lot of white thin pieces.
Day 93 not so much.
Day 94 - love my bird. And it came while I was struggling with the watering can and gave up on it for a bit and wanted a birdbath. The birdbath wasn't an original part of what I planned but when made the bird to go with it and it actually turned out like a bird I decided to put a little more time and effort into my watering can and make it work - and it did.
Then my squirrel on Day 95 & 96. You know I like something if it sticks around for more than one day. Think I had squirrels on the brain and then decided to go for it after the success with my bird and so awesome. Have to admit. After how my octopus turned out on Day 67 and sea turtle (more like sea creature) on Day 69 with just creating from what I know they look like in my head, I gave myself permission to look up images of a watering can and squirrel and think that really helped.
Day 97 - eh, started building and just okay.
Day 98, in a hurry and think it's alright but wonder if had more time what the creation would have been.
So there you go. Three days out of seven to love isn't so bad, right. Do I expect awesomeness from myself everyday? That would be called perfection right? But now that I type it I wonder if I do. Who cares if I don't love each creation, it's the process that counts, right? It's that I created. If we don't show up we might never get the amazing. But also if we show up we might get a lot of eh too. But maybe we learn things we don't even know in those moments and we just have to trust in the process and keep going. And maybe I should have more grace with my eh creations. Life is like that, it's not all awesome all the time, nor would I appreciate it if it was. Kind of feel like this blog post isn't that great either, but then maybe that's okay.
