Try One Creative Thing Each Day
I also try to do a mix of things I'm comfortable with (for example, playing a song on the piano that I learned many years ago and that comes easy) and things that are a new skill or project (like this paper snowflake with roses on each point).
Not only does doing something creative keep me challenged and feed by spirit; but it provides a good model for my daughters to follow. It seems like every time I am making something, they eagerly get their art box or find art supplies and sit down and create something along side me.
I see their comfort with the process of art and creating increase each time they sit down and do something creative. As their skill level develops in different areas in the arts (visual arts, music), their willingness to try new things also increases which is exciting.
