how I did show up… and will

I did barely any sketching last year. Painting disappeared when we started the apartment move. But when I look back over the year, the one thing I did do often was lettering. Mostly while I listened during livestream church each week. I listen best when I doodle oddly enough. I grabbed a few of my favorites and even noticed how it got better throughout the year.

I’m focusing on discipline this year. Keeping habits, making things consistent, showing up every day for even just a bit and letting whatever comes out happen. I can’t control much of anything, but I can show up.

2021 – creating in whatever margins I find

Well, last year didn’t pan out at all like I was planning. Anyone else? Ha!

Welcoming in the new year with lots of flexibility, hopefulness, and excitement for any amount of anything creative I can squeeze in during remote schooling two kids and keeping us all alive and socially distant. Here’s to creativity in the margins, however big and small they are.
