My Creative Habit for 2017 is very simple. I’m just setting aside time to do some painting or drawing every day. Usually this looks like a completed page in my sketchbook, but not always. Sometimes it takes me 2 or 3 days to finish a sketchbook spread because time is limited in my life right now. Between a new baby and lingering colds being passed around between all the members of the family plus the regular day-to-day homeschooling craziness, I’m satisfied to have a few minutes to create every day.
I’m not putting strict rules on myself this year simply because I know I’ll need some grace. January was mostly about illustrating animals. But if I felt like doing something else, I did. And Sundays are generally still spent in my altered Hymn book. But if I felt like doing something else, I did. Notice a pattern? This year is all about creating joyfully and not sticking to one very specific goal.
