Creative Everyday

It turns out that I enjoyed doing the daily photos and want to continue challenging myself each day in some fashion. As I wondered what I would do now, I was led to this website via Andrea, another one of my creative and talented bloggy friends. My personal "Creative Everyday" would include photography, cooking, arts and crafts, traveling, reading, writing and...I know this is stretching but it's my challenge, my way...playing Rock Band. Which, btw, I found out that my TMJ is related to wearing the guitar strap around my neck, not the actual playing of the guitar. Hurray, I'm back in the band!

So I thought I would start myself off with a month of doing something creative every day. It's the beginning of February so it's a good time to start. I won't be able to post every day but I'll backtrack and show my daily creations.

Yesterday, February 1st, so Day 1, I spent most of the day shopping w/ Phin then we went to see Sweeny Todd. Lawsie mercy that is a lot of blood. And they kept the theater so stinking cold. But I swear they HAD to keep it cold otherwise the entire theater would have started puking from how graphic it was. Not my favorite Tim Burton film. but it was fun seeing it with Phin because we were laughing so much because of how Over.The.Top the blood was. And we joked about it the rest of the night, especially at dinner. After I came home, I planned on making a birthday card for my sister in law. But I had just finished checking my mail when the phone rang and it was my cousin-in-law Andrew. And we talked for 3 hours. So technically, I didn't get to create anything, but talking to Andrew about the most bizarre things and shopping and going to the movies with Phin was, in my opinion a very creative day.

Day 2, today, I spent most of the day celebrating my sister-in-law's birthday. Since last night I didn't get off the phone till 1:30am and had to leave by 9am, I didn't make my SIL a brand-fresh-new card. I had to take from my stash. Which was this:but since I didn't create it today. So it doesn't count.
Instead I played with Photoshop:February = hearts!
Oh, and I've played Rock Band about an hour so far today, too.

I definitely think you are up for the challenge and I am impressed that you are pushing yourself. . . that's amazing and dedicated.

The blood was such an odd consistency and there was so much of it. I have to agree OVER. THE. TOP.

I don't know whether to go see Sweeney Todd or not. I'm not big into gore, but I love Johnny Depp plus most Tim Burton. Of course, I'll probably never get a chance to see it on the big screen anyhoo, since it was here about four days and gone before I blinked.
