Good news! August 1-30 I'll be sharing a Daily Paper Prompt.

Time for our Wednesday Link Love.

I'm proud of each of you for your creative endeavors the past two months!

Time to start thinking about your next creative step.

In the comments today, something different. Please let me know what new creative endeavors you have started in the past month, and how ICAD might have contributed.

Just saw your prompt for our comments today, Tammy! I have had one of my most creative and prolific months to date, and that just might be thanks to the index card project! Besides my cards, I have done papercrafting (like making envelopes and library pockets), beaded bracelets, created art journal pages, created mail art, gone on Artist Dates, tried new things in the kitchen (like pizza from scratch for the first time), made my own decorative's been such a busy and fun month!!

New creative endeavours from the past month: I've started writing in my journal everyday again. I've started drawing portraits in my sketchbook journal - something I've never, ever done before. I've been drawing mandalas again. Generally, I've just felt way more creative over the past month than I have in a long time! Many thanks to ICAD for that!

I've also been planning new creative endeavours for next month: I want to start writing poetry again (perhaps a poem a day instead of an index card a day?), get back to writing fiction regularly, and start a new art journal. I was having my doubts about art journaling, but thanks to ICAD, I'm now way more comfortable in my own personal style and I'm ready to start my next art journal!

Thanks, once again, to you, I'm now also trying EDM drawings. The ICAD challenge has shown how I tend to avoid drawing as much as possible (and just how rusty I've become). It's been a good lesson. Thanks Tammy!

I've tried so many new things since I started ICAD in mid-June. I've learned lots from reading your blog ... also from so many members of the Flickr group. I'm glad that prompts will continue in August. There are so many more techniques I want to try.

i don't know that i've started any NEW creative endeavors in the last month, but i definitely feel energized and "on a roll" in my regular creative endeavors, which i VERY MUCH attribute to doing so much stretching and experimenting in the ICAD department! thanks! ♥

Only new endeavor is still 10 minutes a day for myself to create a card - but it's a start.

First off, I tried to post a index card from this week as requested but the Internet Gremlins posted one from the beginning of the challenge! Go figure. :)

I haven't started anything new just yet, but I'm looking forward to continuing with daily creativity with the Daily Paper Prompt coming up!

tammy i just looked at your latest blog post from today. you are super artmaking busy. i'm wondering when you sleep. ;)

ICAD has renewed my interest in mail art--specifically post cards. Some of my index cards may get recycled into mail art and also into art journals! Also making some Smash journals to work in, that will help me use daily stuff to create more collage without stressing about whether it's 'pretty' or not...hope you can stop by my blog for a visit...
