My challenge to be creative every day in 2013 has not been difficult, but I'm trying to make sure it's varied. This past week involved sketching, prayer doodling, creating a plate of nachos with leftovers, decorating cookies to look like my daughter's new necklace, paleontology, bubblology, and flamenco dancing with a macaw. I wish I had a video of that last one, but maybe that's a project for another day. The sketch was for Illustration Friday's theme "Edge" but never advanced past notebook paper. Today's fun was building a hover craft with my kids using an old CD. It got the cat's attention!

This weekend was full of playing with my kids, making snow angels, taking pictures, collecting icicles, and hunting animal tracks in the snow. The two hour drive home also gave me some time to think about a picture I want to work on this week. And I suppose if I were to stretch it, I had to be creative in straining the loose tea we bought into plastic cups in a hotel room.

The last two days I've worked on a collage and took some pictures. Probably most fun is a project I've been meaning to do with/for my kids for a long time. Mini scene viewer. Our own sort of view master with miniatures inside. Got started on it at least and they were very impressed, calling it a Fairy's fairy house. The idea is to make a little scene and hold it up to your eyes as binoculars and look inside. Windows on the top let light through.
