you'd ever want to know about the challenge.
Reboot your creative practice.
We have to nurture our creative work, to refresh, re-engage, re-launch, and re-energize. It will not happen unless we make the proactive choice to create. But how do you get back to it? How do you actually, literally, non-figuratively, DO that? You could make a checklist, put it in your planner, make art dates with your cousin Velvet, or... join the Index-Card-a-Day Challenge! It does exactly that -- it is our ANNUAL REBOOT [in ICAD lingo I think that's an ICADreboot?]. We basically hit the reset, VEER directly back into our art or writing or collaging or painting or drawing or... whatever. See, we all get distracted. BECAUSE LIFE. You might miss your art time dearly, or you might not even pay attention until weeks [years] go by without an inkling of creative time. It is SO easy to get off course. Let that guilt go, OK?
Start somewhere, anywhere, but start. You are the only one who can make that choice.
Incorporate art into your life by creating something on an index card every day for 61 days. see what evolves.
