Track Your Creativity – Free Printable

I’ll make this short + sweet. I made this tracker for myself to organize my creative practices and to help myself focus on different creative practices each month. A few people asked me to share it – so here it is. You can click here to download it. Then get started tracking your creativity.

For the month of September, I wanted to focus on drawing (in addition to other creative practices such as writing that I already practice daily), so I used this handy dandy tracker to set a goal for the month – create a daily habit of either drawing for 10 minutes or drawing ten things. I then brainstormed how I would learn to draw and what I actually needed to do to reach this goal. Finally, I used the calendar on the left to actually keep track of what I have worked on each day. It has been super helpful – mainly because I use it as a constant reminder of what I’m working on this month. I hope you find it helpful as well. If you use it, let me know how it works out for you. Start practicing your creativity!

Creativity in 10: Create a Photography Practice

Creativity in 10 is a recurring series sharing ideas for how you can practice your creativity in ten minutes or less a day. Up today – Creating a Photography Practice.

Creativity in 10 is a recurring series sharing ideas for how you can practice your creativity in ten minutes or less a day. Up today – Creating a Photography Practice.

Here’s the story.

With Creativity in 10, we are once again exploring possibilities for practicing your creativity in 10 minutes or less each day. This is not to say that these ideas (photography, an ideas journal, a writing habit) will be the only way you will ever practice your creativity. Rather, they are ideas for helping you get back into the practice of practicing your creativity. Then, once you are feeling more confident, you can explore your own creative path.

Why Create a Photography Practice?

First, I should point out that when I say “photography” is sounds all haughty and what I really mean is: you are going to take some pictures on your phone.

Okay, back to the “why.”

Many of us already love taking photos – love documenting awesome experiences we have and love recording histories of our loved ones. So we already do it. Now we are just going to put a little thought behind it and exercise those creative muscles some more.

By creating a photography practice you will become more confident in your skills in order to feel more comfortable sharing your photographs. You will also practice the art of storytelling with the photographs you take.

And it’s easy. Many people carry their smartphones around with them anyway – you don’t need any other equipment.

And most importantly, it’s fun.

How To Create a Photography Practice

This doesn’t need to be difficult. If you are on Instagram, as you scroll through your feed, notice the subjects of interest for various people. For example, my sister Becky only takes photos of beautiful places. There may or may not be people in there as well, but they are secondary to the landscape.

Many people have a singular focus such as this. Think about the people you follow on Instagram? Do they only post photos of hand-lettering, pottery, or woven wall hangings?

Or, there are the people who take + share photos of their daily life, or just whatever captures their interest in that moment. Their Instagram feeds are more diverse, yet still serving a single purpose.

Now think about how you take photos, or how you want to take photos? Remember your answer to that question as we get into the next part of this.

There are two ways to create a photography habit (of course there are more ways, but I can only think of two – if you can think of one, you do it another way):

Number 1

Choose a theme. Possible theme ideas:

  • Kids
  • Pets
  • Nature
  • Patterns
  • Black + White

Capture as many photographs as possible that fit into your theme. Aim for at least 20+ for the week or set a daily goal for yourself.

Number 2

Take a photo at the same time everyday for a set amount of time (a week, a month, etc.). Take a photograph each day this week at the same time. Before you get started, there are a few factors to take into consideration.

  • What time of day will you take your photographs? Choose a time that is convenient for you and that you will realistically be able to take photos all week at that same time.
  • Will you photograph the same thing everyday or whatever you see at that time each day? For example, will I photograph my dog on our walk each night, or will I photograph something new I see each night when I am out walking my dog? How many to take? Will you take just 1 photograph and live with it? Or, will you shoot a bunch and choose the best?

Set an alarm or reminder on your phone so you don’t forget to take those photos!

You will notice that as you start to take more photos, your photography will improve. You will start thinking about the light, the background, etc. even if you really do not know anything about these. By trial and error (practice) you will improve your creativity.

From Inspiration Hoarder to Maker

Today’s the day to make the shift from inspiration hoarder mode to a maker mindset. There’s just a few steps to get started. 

Today's the day to make the shift from inspiration hoarder mode to a maker mindset. There's just a few steps to get started.

Here’s the story.

Today you are going to transform from an inspiration hoarder to a maker.

Tell me if this sounds familiar.

You love finding inspiration – whether it is on Pinterest, blogs, magazines or somewhere else. It doesn’t matter if it is craft projects, DIY projects, or something else entirely. You are constantly coming across totally awesome stuff you want to make. But, after awhile you start to notice that you have collected hoards of inspiration but have yet to do anything with it.

Today that changes.

Today you go from inspiration hoarder to maker.

Maybe you collect all kinds of ideas because you like them – great, you should continue to do that – but you have a hard time getting started with them because you don’t necessarily have the skills to do it, or the project materials might be expensive, or maybe you don’t have the time right now to commit to completing the project. Any one of these reasons could be what is keeping you from getting started.

So you don’t do that project – then you don’t do any project.

Your goal today is going to be to find a project that you can complete. Keep it small, minimal, somewhat simple. You want to get an easy win on this one and transform your mindset from someone who collects inspiration but does not follow through into that of that into a maker – someone who see an idea or finds inspiration + actually creates something.

If you want to be a maker, you actually have to do that work – you have to make stuff.

The first thing to decide is what you want to make. This should be easy because you already have so much inspiration saved up. Head over to wherever it is that you collect your inspiration – Pinterest, a journal, a notebook, a bulletin board, a folder on your desktop, etc. Go through it. Pick something simple. You are looking for something that will take an hour or less of your time. Also, choose a project where you already have the materials or you can easily find them at a local store. Choose a project that will allow you to get started right away.

If you’ve got a big long list of inspiration, go through and cross off the ones that are going to take you too much time. Then cross off all of the ones that you need to learn a new skill for. (One point – I’m not saying cross them off forever, just for now until you get started with a creative habit). Cross all the ones that require materials that are too expensive.

Here’s my example. Here is my DIY board on Pinterest. These are all things that I think are awesome, pretty, or in some cases totally awesome. I want to make them all!

Today's the day to make the shift from inspiration hoarder mode to a maker mindset. There's just a few steps to get started.

Now here is my board with projects crossed off that I thought would be too difficult, too time consuming or too expensive for my first one. Here’s the project I am going to do first.

 

Today's the day to make the shift from inspiration hoarder mode to a maker mindset. There's just a few steps to get started. I picked my project – something easy with only a few materials and hard to mess up – the project that is going to help me go from inspiration hoarder to maker.

Next, I am going to figure out what resources/materials I need to complete this project. I’ll make a list and gather them.

Then, if I think about my time – when can I actually do this? During my kids’ nap time? After work + dinner? A chunk of time on the weekend? If you are actually going to do this, you need to prepare so that when you have that chunk of time, you actually execute – you make something! Instead of saying that I only have an hour and I need to decide what I want to do, go to the store, learn a new skill, etc. Not going to happen that way!

Set yourself up for success by doing the preparations first. 

Finally, Is there anything you need to learn before trying? If I I want to hand-letter, should I watch some Youtube videos, or should I just start making. Decide now.

Go make.

Wait, wait, wait. Hold on. One very important point I need to make.

Your first go round is probably going to suck. Most likely it won’t look just like that pin from Pinterest. It’s not going to look just like that Instagram post. You are probably going to feel bad about that, it’s natural. But, then stop and think. Whoever made the source of inspiration probably made it a few times to get it to look perfect. Or, they practice their creativity all the time, so it is going to look amazing. Whereas this is the first time you have tried it, so of course it is not going to look the same. Understand that as you shift from inspiration hoarder mode to a maker mindset, you are probably going to create some total garbage at first. But you have to do that in order to get to the good stuff. You might even throw away some of the stuff you make – that’s okay. You are putting in the practice so that you can increase your skills.

Okay, back to it – go make something!

You did it? Awesome some sauce.

Okay, here is the deal. Going from inspiration hoarder to maker is not a one time transition unless you actually make a practice habit out of it.

Here are some links to making a creative practice habit. Here and here.

Get started!

Today's the day to make the shift from inspiration hoarder mode to a maker mindset. There's just a few steps to get started.

You Need to Practice. Who Knew?

You have to practice. Unfortunately there is no way around it if you want to improve. Especially when you are first getting started. Click to learn more about developing a practice plan for your next creative venture.

Practicing Something Makes You a Whole Lot Better.

No joke.

If you want to get better at anything there is no way around it – you must practice. Then you must practice some more. You will be bad at something when you first start. But, with practice, you will improve.

You know this. I know this. We all know this. It isn’t in fact breaking news. Why, then, is it so hard to follow?

Starting anything new is difficult. It doesn’t matter if it is a workout routine, a healthier way of eating, or a new creative venture – all of them are difficult to turn into a habit. However, if you can stick it out long enough, it will become a habit. Then it will be easier to stick to and with all that practice, you will actually be better at it as well.

So, are you ready to start?

Keep the following in mind as you get started practicing your creativity:

  1. You are going to be bad at first. There is no way around this. The only way out is to practice. Be prepared to create total crap at first, but know that if you stick it out – you will get better.
  2. Make a practice plan. Don’t assume that because you are really excited about something today that by a week from now, or even tomorrow, you are going to be prepared to stick it out when things get tough. You need a plan in place. How often are you going to practice? When? What time of day? For how long? Where? Figure all of these things out ahead of time and the likelihood that you stick with it goes way up.
  3. If you are just getting started with a new creative venture. Don’t pick the toughest, most time consuming project first. Baby steps. (Anyone else a What About Bob fan?). By getting one project under your belt, your confidence, your knowledge, + your enthusiasm go way up. So finish something – anything!
  4. As you get started practicing your new creative venture, remember that you are going to be bad for a little bit. Be nice to yourself – only positive self-talk allowed in your creative zone. Yes, if you compare the work you are doing as you are getting started with what you will make down the road, it is in fact total garbage, but it is your garbage. And that garbage is better than nothing.
  5. Finally as you start to become more confident in your creative skills, share your work with others. I get it, this is scary. I consider Greens & Blues Co. to be my creative work (at least a part of it) and I have a really hard time talking about it with people whose opinions I value. It can be rough at first, but do it.

There is no one “right” way to practice. How you practice something might be very different from how I practice something. But when I think about practicing, a few different options come to mind:

You can practice by yourself working on individual skills, or you can practice in a group – attempting to take your skills to the next level by combining them with the skills of others to see what you can accomplish.

You can repeat the same steps over and over again, focusing on just one skill at at time and mastering that one skill before moving on to the next, or you can practice a variety of skills that are all necessary to accomplishing your goal.

Decide what works for you.

If I told you that today you had the entire day to practice your creativity, what would your day look like?

  • What would you be doing?
  • Who (if anyone) would you be with?
  • Where would you be at?
  • Would you do the same thing all day long, or would you chunk it and work on many different creative ventures?
  • Would you be fine with just practicing, or would you need to execute and finish a project?

Decide what works for you.

So in summary: you need to practice and you need a plan!

Creativity: What I wish I had known when I was just getting starting learning about my brand of creativity. Don't waste your time by making the same mistakes as me.

Creativity: What I Wish I Knew When I Was Getting Started

Creativity: What I wish I had known when I was just getting starting learning about my brand of creativity. Don't waste your time by making the same mistakes as me. I first began to acknowledge my creativity about 8 years ago when I first read A Whole New Mind by Daniel Pink. I wrote more about it here, but at first the book left me feeling a little empty because I realized I had missed out.

What did I miss out on?

Opportunity after opportunity to find my personal brand of creativity and practice it. There were so MANY opportunities,  yet I never took advantage of them. Total bummer. But, I realized that the book had given me one more opportunity and it was completely up to me to decide whether or not to take it.

What opportunity did the book provide me with?

Knowledge. I was now completely aware of the fact that I was creative. In the past, I would have seen an opportunity for a drawing class or photography course and thought “Not for me. That’s for someone who is creatively gifted.” But, now, I had the knowledge. I was aware. If I didn’t take this opportunity it would be 100% my decision – the responsibility was completely on my shoulders.

What I learned about myself from the book:

  • I liked the idea of being creative.
  • I wanted to be creative.
  • I wished I had taken advantage of opportunities to foster my creativity while in school.

While the book changed everything for me, it was a slow process and I wish I would have come to some realizations more quickly. You are all at many different stops on your own individual creative journeys, but the following can be helpful to everyone:

Creativity: What I wish I had known when I was just getting starting learning about my brand of creativity. Don't waste your time by making the same mistakes as me.

CREATIVITY: WHAT I WISH I WOULD HAVE KNOWN WHEN I STARTED.

  1. Creativity is for everyone. Creativity is not exclusive to professional artists and the like. Everyone is creative. No longer can a lack of creativity be your excuse to not do what is going to make you happy. You just have to decide that you are creative and start to practice!
  2. Creativity is a skill that must be practiced. You would never assume that you could pick up a musical instrument and automatically be the best or start playing a new sport today and tomorrow be the team’s MVP, so why then do so many people assume that they should automatically be good at being creative? Expect that you are going to fail at first – you will be bad. Creativity is a skill that must be practiced. The more you practice it, the better you will be at it. But, you can’t get there without putting in the time.
  3. Everyone blames someone for their lack of creativity when truly they are the only ones to blame. – If you are reading this, I am going to assume you are an adult. Therefore you and only you are responsible for your life. It doesn’t matter what happened in your creative past – that was the past. This is now. What do you want? What role do you want creativity to play in your life?

So how does this help you?

If you are just getting started on your creative path, your best bet is to make a plan. This doesn’t need to be anything official, but sit down and take a few minutes to think through the following:

  1. Where are you currently at with your creativity? Be specific.
  2. Where do you want to get with your creativity?
  3. How can you get there? Make a plan.

p.s. If you need help thinking through those questions, I have something that will help you do just that – coming soon!

Join the TEAM?

I’m taking a break from the Live a Creative Life Series this week to share some info on Greens & Blues Co. Over the course of the past few months, I have been dreaming up a redesign – both for my website + for what I want Greens & Blues Co. to be. This past week, I finally finished my website redesign. I felt like it was time to update for a couple of reasons:

  1. It’s fun to do. I designed my website over a year ago and now that my design tastes have changed slightly, I want my website to represent me.
  2. Greens & Blues Co. is ever-evolving. The current vision that I have for Greens & Blues Co. is also slightly different than when I first started it and since my website is the first thing that people see of Greens & Blues Co., I wanted it to accurately represent my new vision.
  3. When I first started Greens & Blues Co., it was very important for me to just start even though I knew it wasn’t going to be perfect. If I waited for every single detail to be perfect – I still wouldn’t have started. And really today, the same is true. Even though I redesigned my website, there are still plenty of things that aren’t quite perfect. But, they are good enough for now.

So beyond the look, the design, of Greens & Blues Co., what has changed?

Number One

I am done with theoretical posts. Yes, it is important to understand that creativity is important and all that jazz, but that doesn’t really do anything for you. Starting today, I am only going to share content that is actionable and that you can put to use immediately. If you visit my START HERE page, you can read my beliefs on creativity and the importance of it, but that is the only place you will find it the future. 

5 Core Beliefs about Creativity - 1. Everyone is Creative. Click to read the rest.

Number Two

I’m changing the name of my weekly newsletter from CHEERS to TEAM.

Anyone who has ever been part of a team, sports or otherwise, can tell you that the best part about being on a team is, of course, your teammates. There is nothing like having teammates to drive you and make you better. The same notion can be applied to a group of people practicing their creativity.

Living a creative life can be different for everyone however we can encourage each other, push each other to go further, to work harder than we would on our own, to try something new, to practice, to do our best – all just by working together. Collaboration can help us take our skills in a particular creative venture to the next level, or to get over ourselves and try something new. Teammates, or just people to collaborate with, challenge us to continually improve our craft.

Although a major component of Greens & Blues Co. is collaboration, I’m not necessarily thinking about two people getting together to work on a creative project.  Instead, it can be a group of people are working towards a common goal – to individually practice their creativity. Each of us that is a part of the TEAM can have a different way of making creativity a part of our daily lives, but at the same time we can encourage each other, push each other, make each other better.

Number Three

Going along with my thoughts from above on collaboration in #2 and the idea of only actionable content going forward from #1, I started a Facebook group called CREATIVITY + COLLABORATION. Thinking/Believing that it is great to collaborate and share our creativity with others is one thing, but I wanted to provide you with a place to accomplish that. Click here to learn more and join now!

Join CREATIVITY + COLLABORATION, a Facebook group that will provide you with inspiration and motivation to practice your creativity.

Think about it – what teams have you been on in the past? Throughout our lives (especially post college), we all join a variety of different teams – dodgeball, volleyball, fantasy football, basketball, etc. Now how about a creativity team? We don’t have to get uniforms…unless you want to puffy paint them yourself of course.  

We join teams for a variety of reasons, including:

Social – to meet people. Joining a league or a team is an easy way to meet people with similar interests as you.

Entertainment – to have fun because we enjoy what we are doing. Whether you are playing flag football team or knitting your cat another scarf, you would only do it and be a part of it if you enjoyed it. Why waste time doing things that aren’t fun or do not bring you joy?

Growth – to potentially get better at whatever it is you are doing. The only way to get better is to put in the time and practice. There are no short-cuts.

Competition – it’s not a dirty word. TEAM Greens & Blues Co. isn’t the type of team where everyone gets a participant trophy, it’s more like the competitive travel team. This doesn’t mean we are going to figure out who is the best at being creative, rather everyone on the team has to be willing to show up, do the work, and get better. No sitting on the sidelines picking grass, you need to be on the field, trying something new, putting yourself out there and very likely failing at times. Competition can be used in a healthy way to push ourselves out of our comfort zones to try something new. Or to take our skills to the next level, or even just to practice more/harder.


The biggest change to Greens & Blues Co. is that I want you to fully understand how I am here to help you.

Greens & Blues Co. You are creative. I'm here to help you find your creativity + practice it. Click to sign up for a course or find other actionable content to help you start practicing your creativity today.

 

I completely believe this to be true. You are creative. I have no doubt of that. I will provide you with inspiration, motivation, and resources to find your creativity and I will push you to continually practice it.  Practice is the key. You can figure out what makes you happy but until you take action and practice nothing changes.

What You Need to Start a New Creative Venture

What You Need to Start a New Creative Venture. It's even less than you think. Click to learn more.

Starting a new creative venture can be exciting, and also a little scary. Many of us hesitate to try something new because not only do we know we will suck at it at first, but it can also be overwhelming to figure out where to even begin. Sound familiar?

If this is your first time here, understand that when I speak of a creative venture, I mean anything that makes you happy and fulfills you. If you have read anything I have written in the past, I hope I have made that clear that your creativity can look however you choose. So whether your new creative venture is a hobby or a business – or something in between – it can be scary when you first start, it’s no fun to suck at anything.

So how do you gain confidence in your creative venture? Easy. You practice. Then you practice some more.

Confidence comes from practice. Everything gets easier the more often you do it. Creativity takes practice. Driving takes practice. Painting takes practice. Sharing your work takes practice. Writing takes practice.  Each part of the creative process takes practice. We all know this, but often we avoid starting new ventures because we know we are going to be bad at them first.

There is a great quote by Maya Angelou, “creativity, the more you use, the more you have.”

It is so true. I feel as though this is the most creative I have ever been. I am flowing with ideas (some good, some bad, some horrible) and I find that if I challenge my creativity each day, it keeps getting better and better. Truthfully, I am not actually more creative now than I was five years ago. I am just practicing my creativity on a daily basis, therefore it seems to come more easily for me compared to when I was not making my creativity a priority in my daily life.

Over the past year, I have tried a lot of things that I have never done before – all related to the creative venture of launching Greens & Blues Co.

  • set up a website
  • designed a logo
  • created an email newsletter
  • tried to learn how to take better photos
  • writing blog posts/email newsletters
  • Contacted people I don’t know and pitched them ideas

I have never done any of these before. I am not a web designer. I am not a graphic designer. I am not a writer. I am not a photographer. I do not know how to market. But, that’s okay. I do not have to be an expert at any or all of these in order to try something new and put myself out there. I learned how to do them by spending hours Googling LOTS of stuff, actually reading the Pins I saved on Pinterest, and putting in the time to try them. In the end, if this (Greens & Blues Co.) is all an epic failure: my courses suck and people hate me, I will have at least tried something new, grown as a human being, and learned a lot of new skills. Not so bad.

Each time I write a new blog post, take photos for my website, or email someone new with an idea it all gets a little bit easier and I get a little better at them. Or at the very least, I THINK I get better at them, so none of them are quite as scary as they were to begin with.

What You Need to Start a New Creative Venture. It's even less than you think. Click to learn more.

So what do you need to start a new creative venture?

  1. Your idea. Decide what you creative venture is. (If you need help with that, I wrote about it here and here).
  2. A plan for embarking on your new creative venture so that you don’t feel overwhelmed and just quit – or worse, not even start. Don’t miss next week’s email for details on this (sign up here to make sure you get it).
  3. Confidence. How do you gain confidence? You have to put in the work. You have to practice.

Your homework: Between now and next Tuesday, I want you to come up with an idea for a new creative venture – remember it can be a hobby or business, but something new that you will try in order to push yourself creatively. Next Tuesday, we’ll talk about how to start.

#CreateShare2015 Starts Tomorrow!

Just a quick reminder that #CreateShare2015 starts tomorrow, Wednesday September 16th.

I hope you will join us, whether you are someone who is in the habit of creating each and everyday, or if this is the kick in the butt you need to get going – either way, I can’t wait to see how you practice creativity.
