It's only 100 days, right?

Remember last year when I talked about #the100dayproject on Instagram? Well, I guess I’m a glutton for punishment because I’ve signed on to do it again this year starting tomorrow, April 2nd, and going all the way through July 11th… Seriously, someone talk some sense into me!!

Only this year I’m going about it a little differently.

This year I’m not necessarily focusing on 4” drawings… I’m focusing on things that make me happy. Yes, there will be illustrations and hand-lettering, but I didn’t want to limit myself to one specific thing this year. I want to make sure I take 5-10 minutes each day for something I love. Watering my plants, drinking a good glass of wine, hand-lettering a personal affirmation (yep - I seriously need some of those), drawing something fun, celebrating a new recipe I tried, enjoying a good cop of coffee, lunch out with friends, painting en plein air, reading a good book, etc. All the while taking photos and making illustrations of the ways I’m supporting myself for 100 days. It’ll still be creative, but I’m going to give myself permission to wander if I just can’t seem to force myself to draw something one day.

Sounds do-able, right? We shall see...
