January Already


I hope you'll like January at Daisy Yellow.

Lots of art. And permission.

Some rule-breaking.

An art journal collaboration.

A mail art collaboration.

A new artist interview.




Here's a discussion from the Daisy Yellow Facebook group that I don't want you to miss. 

I invite each of you to share {ONE} CREATIVE intention for 2013. I know you have a million, zillion plans. Gobs of resolutions. Strong words about a fresh start. I know. But for today, name ONE possible, realistic, doable thing. Something big enough to make a difference yet small enough to be feasible. Some ideas: "draw a doodle at lunch every monday" or "keep a journal and markers in my purse" or "wake up 20 minutes before the kids and write a daily haiku" or "write one sentence each evening before i go to sleep" or "plant daisies in the spring and pansies in the fall" or "read one creativity book each month" or "draw while my kids do their homework" or "take weekly flute lessons" or "buy a sewing machine" or "focus on 'patience,' my word of the year" or....

Looks like a fun month ahead! Can't wait! One realistic creative intention of mine for 2013 is to do one new pencil drawing per month

I have so many exciting plans for a completely creative year filled with tons of Delicious COLOR! Thank you so much for being such a great inspiration!

My word of the year is "enjoy" so I plan on enjoying my life, family, art, creativity, teaching career, blog, artistic community, and every opportunity that presents itself in 2013. Excited for January at Daisy Yellow!

I've actually been thinking about realistic intentions for several weeks and trying to focus on what I would do if I could only do ONE artistic thing. My solution? Use the 45 minutes in the morning before work to make art, to be creative. That's my most energetic time of day, so I should use it! Thanks for being such an ongoing inspiration - love your blog.

I want to make sure I spend less time doing things that don't matter (like repeatedly checking blogs throughout the day, and instead only once a day) and do art instead! I am getting too attached to the smartphone, when I could be doing art.

Here's one of mine:
Spend at least 15 minutes a day playing in my journal.

Mine doesn't sound the least bit ambitious but I have a chronic illness so...
Simple is Good!
The way I look at it my art doesn't need to be complex, million dollar art to be valid. Whether it's a doodle, taking a photo or two, cutting up some magazines, or even doing an actual journal page...
Simple is Good!
Not good enough. Good as in Great as in Fabulous as in Wonderful. Especially good as in perfect for me and what I can do in the moment. I like good. I can do good.

My friend and I have a shared resolution to be pen pals and mail each other art letters and turn them into a letter journal!

What a bright and cheery post for the new year, Tammy! I am setting positive intentions to finish projects that I have begun but never completed. I've made a list of all the things I've started or purchased supplies to complete, and one by one I am planning to get them done. Some are very small things, while some are quite involved. It will take at least this year, along with everything NEW I plan to pursue. I'm not going to rush; I'm just going to FINISH!
