join the free SIMPLE DAILY DIY creativity challenge
We challenge you take 10 minutes A day to create something!
UNLEASHING YOUR CREATIVITY HAS NEVER BEEN SO FUN AND EASY
During the 15-day #SimpleDailyDIY Challenge, we'll be sending you an idea every 3 days to use in a project: it could be a material you have on hand (e.g. egg-carton, piece of paper), a technique (e.g. coloring, gluing) or an end-product (e.g. a centerpiece for your table). The goal is to make something in just 10 minutes per day over the three day period with materials that you already have available to you.
And don't worry if you're stuck for inspiration: we'll also send some specific projects and ideas that we've found that fit with the challenge theme - you just need to pick your favourite and create!
The best part of our low-pressure, tons of fun challenge is that we'll all be sharing our creations in our amazing, supportive and positive Facebook group and Instagram Community.
Give yourself just 10-minutes a day to make something, unwind, feel productive and happier. IT's a MUST!
We are big believers that crafting and hobbies are a NEED in addition to a fun and productive way to spend time and have the science to prove it:
- hobbies have been shown to lower the odds of mild cognitive impairment;
- adults with high levels of craft expertise better keep their spatial ability performance, a skill that otherwise decreases with age;
- crafters report benefits such as personal growth, development of physical and cognitive skills, and reduced agony and stress as benefits of creating;
- engaging in activities and hobbies are effective for increasing mood among persons with severe mental illness.
So, based on the science, unleashing and expressing your creativity is a necessity for mental wellness, energy and happiness.
Just consider this challenge as your free therapy!
How Does the simple daily diy Challenge Work?
Every 3 days, starting Nov 15 we'll send you an e-mail with the project idea that we'll all be working on together.
We've carefully selected and tested each project to make sure that you can make them in less than 10 minutes per day over the 3 day period. We'll give you specific steps on what to do on Days 1-3 in order to create beautiful and impressive projects.
Or if you prefer, go freestyle and make whatever you'd like that fits with the theme!
And even better, we'd love to see what you're making: we'll all be sharing and marveling in our creativity on our #SimpleDailyDIY community Facebook group and Instagram accounts.
WHO IS THE CHALLENGE FOR?
You! If you're here and curious, you have to give this a try. You have nothing to lose! :D You can withdraw from the challenge mailing list at any time. But seriously, this challenge is ideal for those who:
- would love to "make" and be creative more, but just can't seem to find the time
- have a bit of time but can't always think of what to create
- are looking to connect with others who also like to create and craft
- just would like to see others create
