creativity bootcamp.

...yes, I'm still in! I just uploaded my entry for day 4 (all of my entries are here) and am completely in love with this project.

and nearly a third of the way through, I wanted to document a few of my thoughts and learnings:
  • the daily prompt format - thoughts, journal prompt and random word prompt - has really jumpstarted my journaling and I love love having a word to focus my photos.
  • I spent a long time agonizing over the format (5x7 page, with 5x5 photo and journaling on the side) and almost changed to a simple 5x5 photo with the word/day, until I read the gracious comments on the first 3 pages I uploaded.
  • lack of time and talent are my two biggest creativity buzzkills. I am going to start spending an hour less on the internet each week - instead I want to use that time to learn how to use my camera.
  • I am good about noticing small details. I am pretty good about capturing those in a photo. I have a hard time capturing "the big picture" in a photo.
  • sara is my biggest fans. she's asked me about this project daily and encouraged me to keep it up. I am so grateful for her support and ideas!


  1. Very cool. I'll be sure to check out your entries on flickr.

  2. lack of talent?! i think you are very talented! but good on you for wanting to learn more about your camera ... and i love this for heavy metal, can't wait to see the rest of your set!

  3. your take on all four days is ever so creative...i especially like the ivory pearls. what a great signature!


Thanks for the feedback!
