Sometimes, I need an excuse to just mindlessly stand at my craft table holding scissors and glue in my hands for an entire week. And that’s what I’ve done here by creating this Our Creative Selves Challenge. And I invited a few friends to the party. Because I believe in the healing power of creativity especially in community. Find the introduction to my challenge post here.

The first day’s prompt was exploration and boy, there was such inspiration out in the wide world for this prompt. It was the best way to start with an excuse to play.

I chose to make a paper flower in honor of the woman who gave me a most exquisite paper flower making book. It was satisfying. Other participants grabbed oil pastels and brayers and clay and enjoyed the excuse to play.

The second day’s prompt was circle. And oh the loveliness that’s filling my eyes. There was knitting, paper clay making, puff paint, and prisma markers. And that each person made sure to take time out of their day to indulge their inner children, that is the good stuff right there.

This is what I said at the end of my Instagram post in which my circle art was posted.

“Create with abandon. Create with permission.

Steal the supplies, steal the time, and notice all worries fall away,

at least for a short time, as you find out what you make of your world.”

Here’s to Five more days of making! Hope you get a chance to create today just because you can. No really, you can. I’ll lend you the permission.
