Do you remember when you were a kid, how you spent hours just doodling or coloring? You’d relish a new pack of crayons, savoring those sharp points and using them to create your best work. As you got older, you’d practice improving your skills, honing your coloring to an art form.
And then somewhere along the way, you probably lost all that. You got too big for coloring books, too busy to take the time for something so frivolous.
But you know what? Coloring is good for you – at any age! The act of coloring can be a very calming, zen-like activity. Putting color to paper and breathing new life in something that doesn’t require too much skill but still allows you to make something beautiful.
Happy Maker’s Wednesday, everyone!
Today we want to welcome back Penny Shima Glanz, our resident tech expert! Today she’s tackling a topic that’s probably familiar to any of you who like to write blog posts in a different format (Google Docs, MS Word, 750 Words, etc.) and then paste them into your blog. What happens when it doesn’t look the way it’s supposed to? Read on for Penny’s expert advice.
Welcome to #ThinkCreateReflect, your bi-monthly dose of creative and business inspiration!
This week’s prompt:
Do you find it hard to work in your designated work space? Do you have a cluttered desk, projects-in-progress scattered about the studio, or a pile of paperwork to file? Set a timer for 15 minutes and see how much clutter you can clear before you begin your work for the day; you may be surprised at how much more productive you can be when your desk is clear.
We’d love to see photos of those clean spaces! Share them with us on Instagram and Twitter and tag ’em #ThinkCreateReflect!
