This is my second year doing ICAD. I loved it last year and learned so much during the process. I was so excited for it to start again this year. I'm learning new things and being reminded of things that I learned last year. First off my desk pretty much is always packed with supplies during ICAD.
#2 Sharing my art makes me feel very vulnerable.
#3 I'm constantly inspired by all the other work I see.
#4 Learning new techniques.
#5 I love and am addicted to Instagram!
#6 Even if I don't feel like creating once I start I usually get caught up in my work.
#7 I have a real love for words and typography.
#8 I'm more connected to the stuff around me when I'm creating on a regular basis.
#9 I love quirky and silly phrases.
#10 It's hard to step out of my comfort zone, but so rewarding when I do!
#11 Some days it takes as much time to take the photo, edit it, and share it as it does to create it.
#12 So far this year all my photos have been taken on my phone.
#13 It takes practice to make a photo look good with a phone!
#14 So far I haven't been in the "mood" to use the prompts.
#15 I enjoy sifting through the junk mail now! I love finding words and patterns to use.
#16 It's okay if all my cards don't fit or look like the same "style".
#17 I'm a happier person when I spend time creating on a regular basis.
#18 I've found the cards I don't care for as much end up being the ones everyone else likes.
#19 Some days it helps me work through things and process the things on my mind.
#20 I'm learning to be okay with the pieces that don't "turn out".
Well there you have it. Seeing this list in print makes me even more excited about the process and the journey.
