Top 5 Lessons Learned from my First Creative Personal Project

Last week I completed my first creative personal project 100 Days of Pillows, where for 100 weekdays I committed to making a new design that could be printed on a throw pillow. It was one of the most difficult and satisfying projects I’ve completed in my art journey. I learned so much from it, things […]

100 Days of Pillows (91-100)

I can’t believe I’m saying this but the 100 Days of Pillows project is COMPLETE!!! Tomorrow will be 6 months to the day since I drew the very first one. The project would have been finished earlier had I not taken a break for Christmas and weekends, but it was the sustainable pace I needed. […]

100 Days of Pillows (84-90)

After my mini-meltdown 😉 at the end of Day 83, the past week and a half was hands-down my favorite of all during this project. Every pattern felt intentional, my final color choices sure (even if I struggled to get there), and I really enjoyed sitting down to draw each one. A modern tree pattern. […]

100 Days of Pillows (70-76)

It’s hard to believe I just hit 75% complete on this project! When I first started I couldn’t imagine finishing a project this size. I was committed but honestly a little afraid. When it’s complete I’ll probably write a post with all that I’ve learned in this process, but for now, I’m so thankful I […]

100 Days of Pillows (63-69)

Warmer still. The good news is that it didn’t take until Day 75 to get comfortable again, as I predicted. It seemed to happen right after my last blog post with Day 63! Creativity really does need exercise much like a muscle. If you flex it, it grows bigger. Ignore it, even for a short […]

100 Days of Pillows (56-62)

Getting warmer. I looked back at my first 50 pillow designs and realized it took about 25 designs before things started to feel really comfortable. So if history repeats itself, given my little break at Day 50, Days 75-76 should be hopping! But, hopefully it won’t take as long this time. 😉 This ocean themed […]

100 Days of Pillows (49-55)

Happy 2018, everyone! I’m slowly but surely getting back into the swing of things after taking a much needed break over the holidays. I did some planning for the new year, which included hanging a white board in my office (why have I not done this sooner?), and am already enjoying checking items off my […]

100 Days of Pillows (42-48)

After the Thanksgiving break I started up again with Christmas designs. It’s funny, working with holiday motifs isn’t something I can force myself to do (I’ve tried). But when the mood hits, it stays awhile. Whimsical reindeer silhouettes using the same pink in the poinsettia pattern from Day 40. The tiny houses from Day 31, […]
