Creativity Queue Challenge: Day No. 8

It's Day No. Eight in our Non-Consecutive Days of working on creative projects from our lovely lists or in our minds. Please go read the introduction to see what we are up to. Today, our lovely Creativity Queue Challenge Hostesses today are Jenny of the suburban road less traveled and Sarah of Our Daily Craft!

So here's what I worked on yesterday.

Issue #4 of the Daisy Yellow Zine was published in early March and and at least once each week I get an email about an order, asking how the person will receive the zine? I mentioned it in the announcement post but it was easily overlooked when pushing that button to get the zine. So I decided to make a page that people would see after purchasing, and you can set that up in the options in paypal. Here's my graphic for the thank you, I LOVE it!

And in addition to what you have accomplished, I'm curious to read about what you have ADDED to your creativity queue since you started the challenge????

Working on creative STUFF tends to lead down the path to other creative STUFF.

  1. Learn to make quiche and while it's in the oven, you plan to try red bell peppers instead of onions next time.
  2. Crochet a scarf, and suddenly you are googling how to crochet in vertical stripes.
  3. Use frisket as a mask to draw a flower, and wonder if you could use it to create lines for journaling on your next art journal page.
  4. Organize your office supply drawer and stumble upon an incomplete deck of cards, separating your art pens from your number 2 pencils and dream about designing artist trading cards for the 49 cards in the deck.

 On that note, what have you accomplished creatively in the past few days? If you don't have a blog, please feel free to add your updates in the comments, so everyone can enjoy and feel the energy of the group working together. If you have a post about your progress or a flickr photo, add your linkie love below. 

It's the last day of our challenge. I've been wondering whether we should continue on a maybe once-per-month basis, but I only want to do it if there are enough people interested?

Very cool graphic Tammy. A nice taste of all the goodness headed their way in your Zine. I have said it before but thank you so much for this challenge. Concentrating on started projects was a goal I was working on but this gave me a real boost. It has been great to meet some new people and the creative energy is fun to share. I have added some things to my list for sure. I want to work up books for my mail art like iamrushmore shared and LizzieBo has inspired me to play with watercolor more.

I have been doing a rotten job (as in, not at all) keeping up with this challenge, but I did manage to finish the project I've been working on all week of dyeing some yarn with dandelions! Thanks for sharing all your creativity with us!

I loved this idea! It succeeded in kicking me (gently) into action on some stuff. No blog and no photos, but here's what I did:
1. Finally took an idea I'd had for several years and made a magical winged rabbit for my partner's Easter basket.
2. Organized some supplies
3. Looked through my collection of art magazine clippings for inspiration.
4. Made a "creativity queue" list and put it up on my bulletin board where I see it every day, along with all the more mundane lists of household tasks, appointments to make, etc.

I would love to do a regular Creativity Queue check-in. Kind of like a guild meeting where people do show and tell. I'm always thrilled to see what other people have been up to - how they problem solved (I so often have the same problems). These two weeks I finished a couple fiber projects that had been languishing. I also took the time to clean up and tweak some of my organization, which let me accomplish more and actually unearthed some interesting materials. I sewed, knitted, gessoed, shopped, painted, glued and cleaned. Now I have three petite altered booklets ready for exploration, some knitting left to do, and four mini repair/explore projects sitting in a pile for me to do next week. Plus a few blogs I'll check back in. Thanks for everyone who played along.

can I post a quiche tip? Because asparagus (cooked and chopped into bits) is wonderful in quiche. Also, using evaporated milk instead of cream will increase the protein and calcium and lower the fat, without making a difference to the final dish

your paypal page is gorgeous (and such a smart idea). visiting all the other folks who participated in this challenge was great. it added way more to my queue, but for the life of me I can't remember any of those ideas right now. (must be all the chocolate I ate while hiding the easter candy tonight. one under the couch in my on the in my mouth...). I need to keep a little inspiration journal in my pocket at all times so I can take notes when I see a good idea. I'll add that little project to my queue :)

I'd love this to continue! I've been reading your posts, but not joining in officially, yet, though I've gotten a ton done in preparation to do more art. It'd be great to get to know you guys more and check in on projects monthly or so! My next task is to update my blog and open it back up again.

i love the idea of starting one small thing because it often leads to something else, like a whole work of art... most of my art starts as one thing and becomes something completely different!

so I'm not sure this page fits in with the challenge except that it is really what i need to do so that my attitude does not negatively impact my creative work. Thank you all for sharing your challenges.
