The new year brings to mind resolutions- usually to lose weight, stop smoking or other behavior. So why not do something different this year and make a resolution to do something creative every day, week or month? How often you choose to create depends on many factors: your energy, health, your internal drive to create, whether you work full time , and do you caretake for children or other family members?
I don’t know about you, but the thought of doing something creative every day is daunting. Actually, when I think about it, I DO something creative most every day, so for me, this might be a realistic goal. Though, on second thought, once a week might be more realistic. Or, if creating doesn’t come naturally to you, once a month is a reasonable goal to make.
Creative in 2011
Here are steps to being more creative in 2011.

Step 2: After posting the badge, consider all the various ways you can be creative. No limitations! Any medium will do.
Step 3: Blog about it as often as you like. I plan to blog about what creative things I am up to at least once a week. That’s my resolution.
That is all the steps. Easy, right? Oh yes, if you want to participate, let me know so that I may add a list of blogs or sites that are playing along. Just leave me a comment with your address of your blog or website, and I will add you to the list.
Happy New Year!! Creatively Yours, Carla
