ICAD 2014: Could it be the cure for my missing mojo?

You may have noticed a lack of blog posts recently. This reflects a lack of creative projects generally. Tomorrow, the index-card-a-day challenge starts (ICAD) – this could be just what I need to get back into the creative habit. I hope so!

icad 2014

If you haven’t come across ICAD before, it’s an annual challenge hosted by Tammy over at Daisy Yellow. The idea is to create something (anything) on an index card every day for the months of June and July. This will be the third year that I have taken part, along with my two boys. A stack of cards at the end is very satisfying. Here’s my stack from way back in 2011:

All I need to do is START!

  1. This is my second year participating in ICAD. It is such a great way to learn new techniques and jumpstart my creative spirit. Thanks for posting this encouraging article.

    I’ve been thinking the same for myself…hope it is the cure for both of us. Last year was my first time getting though the whole 61 days. I felt such a feeling of accomplishment!

    Yes. It will be the cure. I’m glad you will be joining the wild ICAD chaos yet again.

    I saw your post on the facebook ICAD group and I know what you mean about needing a challenge to re-boot your creativity. I go through a long cycle of seasonal affective disorder every year in the dark months and it often takes me until May until I feel the urge to create. Then, I’m kinda manic about my artwork. I am taking steps to be healthier during the winter, but having the energy to do or to make is so difficult.
    Good luck on your ICAD journey this summer.

I will reply to comments here on the blog, so please check back if you are looking for a response! I love hearing from you x
