Update...Morning After Challenge

 Here's the challenge....

I'm hoping you will join in with me in my "Morning After Challenge" which is to create a page in a journal, or a tip in page (loose page) for the next 30 days and post it on your blog. Please leave a comment on the daily post here if you've made a page so I can come visit you!   Why do this right now in the midst of holiday craziness?  That's exactly why...to wind down, to let it all out, release some stress...to get some ME time...to practice and then practice some more...

Other good reasons to join along:   Do you have some ideas percolating and just need to get out?  Do you want to practice a technique whether its doodling or watercolors, collage, or painting...whatev'  it's all good and there's no pressure, just create and say whatever is on your mind! 

...I have some ideas I need to get out....I love to write....I want to be more regular blogging, and I need to develop some good repetitive habits that will help me launch BIGGER ideas.


                                                   Why call it "The Morning After Challenge" ?  
Well, I'm all about cozying up on the couch in the winter time late at night while it's all quiet and putting some thoughts down on the page, even penciling in some ideas, maybe even using a pen or ink to the page and then the morning after when I wake up...I grab a cuppa joe and color in the page and tweak it a bit and wallah...I have a sweet journal page without much discourse of the regularly programmed schedule.  Think of it it as your late night and morning pages :)  Doing a little at night and a little in the morning makes it doable...YOU CAN DO THIS!

Who knows where this will lead to...new ideas, less stress, fine tuning your skills,  maybe even publishing or building a body of work to make prints of for sales.....but most of all...it's just to enjoy :)

I created a smaller badge for you to use if you like...please post a link to this blog post if you use it. I wish I could give you some code but I have no clue how to do that..lol.  There are some things I'm still learning.

Looking forward to seeing what the next month brings for all of us that participate!!   Until we meet again, create to live, and live to create!    xoxo  Jodi
