Welcome to Hibernate & Create – Connecting and Inspiring Creatives!

DSC_3552-01Hibernate and Create started in January 2016 as the “31 Days of Creativity Challenge.”  My goal was to hibernate from the Nebraska cold and utilize the first 31 days of the year to finish some of my art & crafts projects and start a few new ones!  I quickly realized that if I needed motivation, so would my other creative friends.

The challenge has blossomed into a beautiful Facebook community of individuals from across the United States and Canada.   If you’d like to join this wonderful group of inspirational spirits, click on the Facebook icon and request to be added to the Hibernate and Create group.  We’d love to have you join us to share your creative activities and support others.  Our next Challenge will kick off in January.


IMG_0353Hibernate and Create took the next step in January 2018, where with the encouragement of the group, the first Hibernate & Create RETREAT was hosted in Omaha, Nebraska at the Hot Shops Art Center.  We had so much fun working on our projects and taking courses from guest instructors, that a another retreat is in the works.  Check out the RETREAT section of this website for more information.

I look forward to our creative journey together!  Follow me on Facebook / Instagram as @DegreesbyKelli or like the Facebook Hibernate and Create page @hibernateandcreate to keep up to date on all things creative and my wandering of the world.
