Creative Date for October

Mixing it up a bit this month with this post coming earlier in the month. 

Julia Cameron in The Artists Way suggested the idea of making time for a regular creative date.   This idea is also picked up by Matt Tommey in Unlocking the Heart of the Artist.   

Judy shared this page with us: 101 Artist's Date Ideas.

I am suggesting that we should each make time for a creative date each month.  Ideally we will go out.  Go to a local museum, a local art gallery, go for a walk!  Whatever idea you have that will feed your creativity.

However sometimes it's not possible to physically visit those places.  So here's my idea for October.

Go to this blog at Elvie Studio and read the blog post.
Scroll down through the blog and you will come to a list of favourite places.  Click through to one of the blogs.  Do the same on that page - click through to another page.  If there isn't a list come back to the Elvie Studio blog and find another blog to look at, repeating this for as long as you wish.  Make notes of things that inspire you.  Make a list of the links to the blogs you went to and share them with the rest of us.

Of course blog surfing can use up time like nothing else can.  So you may want to set yourself a time limit - say an hour - or a number limit of blogs - say 6.  Choose what suits you best and 
have fun!
