I typically am not the kind of person who sets new year resolutions. I would fall in that horribly large amount of people who never keeps them. So I just never make them. So here is the idea...this isn't a resolution. This is part of my blog for the year and I want you to join me! Every Friday we will have a blog link up where you can share your final creative moment for the week. Don't think you can commit to doing it everyday? No problem! Why not just do it once a week? Maybe it's Friday when the link up will be or maybe it's Wednesday! It doesn't matter. Let's dig into those creative bones and lets share what we have been doing!
Now you are probably wondering how this connects to my blog and helping with eating disorders and preventing them. Let me give you a few reasons.
1. I will be doing this with my daughters. It's a great way to help them explore their creativity as well! I feel like it's also a great way to spend quality time with them each day!
2. The arts are a wonderful way for people to explain their feelings. I am never one to express myself wonderfully when speaking, but give me a camera and I can help you understand me a little bit better. Give me paints and my heart will be on canvas.
3. I hope that this gives moms and daughters (or sons) a way to connect. And I hope that we can come together on Fridays and share what we have been learning. It's a great way to share ideas and help one another!
So are you in? Want to join? If so there are a few ways you can do it. Head on over to Amazon and buy the book! Or if you just want to follow along with my blog that is fine too. Either way take a day or take 365 and join us in creating! First thing is first the book suggest that the key to doing a successful daily project is choosing a subject or medium you will enjoy exploring for the year. I will give you what mine will be...Hearts! Get it? Tender Hearts...It just seemed to fit right. I wanted to pick a specific theme rather than a medium because I didn't want to stick to one type of art work. I love photography and I could do a whole years worth of pictures for this blog, but I want to challenge myself to work in other mediums.
Will you join me? Come back tomorrow for the sign up and let me know if you are in. And don't worry you can commit to once a day, once a week or once a month. Whatever you feel you can do. I hope you will join me. See you tomorrow!
