much love monday ["made this myself" week]

thanks to Jennifer (thylady) for the love-heart paper

I love: making things.
So I'm challenging myself to make something new every day of this week. I'm often inspired by the many creative people out there, and I'm always scribbling down ideas of projects I'd love to do - yet I rarely actually do it. It is always for whatever clich├ęd reason: "I don't have the time", "I'm way too busy", "it has to be perfect", "I'm having a creativity block", you know how it goes. So this time, I'm not making any excuses. It may not always turn out as expected, it certainly won't be perfect, it most likely won't be anything big, but it'll force my creative juices to flow - and that's what I need. I'll be blogging about my every day creations. I've never done a weekly theme on the blog before - so I hope you don't mind seeing something different from my usual posts this week. I'm starting off the week with this origami crane and gif.

Perhaps you'd like to play along with me? You are more than welcomed to! There's no rules. Just make something artsy/crafty/creative this week. Simple things that you can finish within a couple of hours would be just fine! It could be a couple of photos, a quick sketch, maybe you'd like to cook something, or maybe there's a DIY project you've always wanted to try? You don't even have to do it every single day if you don't want to.
