Join me in a creative challenge to create daily

Written by: | Published: July 01, 2013 | Updated: June 05, 2017

I here over and over from friends and family “I’m just not creative”. Over and over I reply “yes you are!”. There’s a big difference between creativity and artistic talent and I honestly believe everyone is creative. It’s about problem solving and creative thinking… thinking outside the typical norm. It happens, in all of us. We just need to learn to recognize it and go with it.

The key is the “go with it” piece. Allow yourself to think creatively and then act on it. Create something every day. Doesn’t matter what it is, just create. Could be a song, a story, a painting and cake… I don’t care, just create!

The Challenge:

For the entire month of July, I am challenging myself to create daily and inviting you to come along. As a bit of a brainstorming jump starter, I’ve created a list of 31 promps/ideas/themes so together we have no excuse.

I’ll be sharing my daily creations via Instagram @jgoodedesigns tagged as #createdaily

You’ll also be able to join in and/or follow along on Facebook ( and twitter @jgoode.

Are you in?

I’d love to see what you create throughout the month! Don’t worry if you don’t create every day, the goal is to help you get started creating something. If you love it and keep going, you might just discover your hidden talents and love for something new… then when you keep going, you’ll be proud of what you’ve learned. That’s exciting to me!

Don’t forget, this isn’t about drawing or painting.. crafting or anything specific. Create things YOU LOVE. Maybe you are the best darn sandwich maker on the planet – do it, share it.. maybe I’ll be inspired to make a great sandwich too and my kids will be happy they aren’t stuck with PB&J AGAIN. Don’t forget to tag me where ever you share and use the hashtag #createdaily so everyone can join in the sharing.

I can’t wait to see what you create!
