In fall a few people asked me whether I would be holding another fall sketch challenge – like last year. Unfortunately I simply didn’t have enough time to do so. But, I have been thinking of creating a little something for Advent – as I love this time of year – for ages. So I simply threw both ideas together and *tadaaaa* – the Advent Creativity Challenge was born!
And this is how it will work:
- Reserve a time each day for “me-time” and being creative. <3
- Create a sketch, a painting or some other type of creative work that fits the prompt for each day. (see below)
- If you like show your creation on social media. You can do so here:
Wenn du magst, zeig allen anderen die mitmachen deine Kreation. Das kannst du hier tun:
on my facebook-page
in my facebook-group
- In order for others an me to find you, use the hashtag #ursulascreativitychallenge
- Have fun!
And please, don’t take the word challenge too seriously. The goal isn’t to finish each day of the challenge no matter what. It’s not supposed to add another to do to your long list. It’s meant to create a bit of space each day for yourself where you can just BE and CREATE.
Cause often this time of year just rushes by. We’re trying hectically to finish all the tasks we have to do … bake cookies, go to Christmas parties, decorate the apartment, buy presents … I LOVE Advent, but the fact that it’s just a big rush that’s over so quickly makes me sad. So I thought maybe we – you and me – could slow down the speed a bit by just taking a few minutes each day and enjoying. Make your creative timte extra festive by lighting a candle and having a cup of hot tea or punch. A few cookies don’t hurt either. ;-) These are some of my favourite by the way. ;-)
What do you think about my idea? Are you in? I’m looking forward to your comment!
