etsy seller: happydeliveries

In honor of Movie Monday being reduced to every other week for the sake of my own sanity and level of inconsistency, I thought I would make this Monday's post at least a little exciting.

I've been getting a little frustrated with a lot of the blogs I loved reading turning into substance less fashion blogs. I started this blog as way to share and get feedback on art projects, works in projects, new jewelry items, and the occasional lifestyle post. I'm nervous that as time goes on I'll begin to lose sight of why I started keeping this thing in the first place. After my mental vacation in Florida, I thought a 30 day creative challenge would be the perfect thing to get me back on track.

The following is a list that I created based on other 30 day challenges I've seen on line. Others seems  bit err... lacking or not applicable to the city that I live in. So here it is,

  1. You can get #5 done by doing swaps. Making something for a complete stranger. I did a marathon on artist documentaries on Netflix once. It was very inspiring and informational.
    Will I follow you in this creative challenge? Sure! But, once I'm done with school. I'll try to get some done on the side though.
