I’m on Instagram as @chaco_kid and I mostly post pictures of my Momma’s Girls there. I got into IG almost three years back when I got my rescue girls and an iPad within a few months of each other. It was a natural. I figured people would get tired of seeing dozens of picture of my dogs in their Facebook streams, so I started a Momma’s Girl Facebook page and started creating Momma’s Girls comics with my dogs. I can tell you that creating comics works your creativity and your dialog skills – short, concise, and to a point. (You also see how many times you screw up on your editing later – because the graphic work temporarily blinded you from noticing your finger’s missteps.)
I have done the picture a day Instagram photo challenges before – but someone posted a Creative Midori Challenge (#creativemidorichallenge) and it looked like it would flex a lot more creative muscle. It had such a variety of things to try. And just the day before, I had purchased some watercolor supplies (I’m a dabbler – not an artist, as you will see in a minute with my iPad graphic-y goodness.) because I’d been feeling the need to stretch and flex creatively (since my book keeps trying not to get itself finished). So here it is- and you can certainly join in on the fun anytime and it’s not too late if you want to catch up either:

PS I am now well aware that I am probably doing it completely wrong – as far as I can tell Midori is a planner/scheduler kind of thing – only way more awesome. It seems to be like a combination of journaling, scrapbooking, listing, organizing, and being generally crafty in a little book – all at the same time. However - none of this should keep you from a perfectly good, creative exercise! :D
Feel free to show us some of your creative muscle - Flex it baby, flex it!
