Simple Challenge Rules:

Daily creativity.  (yes, daily)

The goal is to do something creative EVERY day in the month of January.

You define your own creativity!
Pick a creative activity that brings you joy!
It could be painting, drawing, sewing, knitting, gluing, jewelry making, photography, writing, soldering, cooking, quilting, singing, sanding, journaling, designing, baking, blogging, glass fusing, stitching, sanding, organizing, fiber dying, doodling, felting, procrastinating, hammering, cleaning and more!

Your creative period must be for a minimum of 15 minutes.
I challenge you to set aside 30 minutes or better yet an hour each day.
We are all busy people and some days it might be difficult for you to squeeze in 15 minutes, but give it a try.

Share your creative experience.

Post a quick photo of your creativity in our Hibernate & Create Facebook Group.  The group will cheer you on!  I will cheer you on!  I’m a great cheerleader!

To help inspire creativity,  there will be a chance to win prizes from some talented & generous folks.   Prizes will either be a finished item or some supplies to help inspire your next creative project.  Prizes and timelines will be announced late December.
If you would like to donate a prize, please contact me at

How you are entered:

Post your daily photos in the Hibernate & Create Facebook group for a chance to win.

You MUST start your post with Day 1, Day 2, Day 3, etc.  If you do not have the “Day” + “day of the month” you will not be considered entered for that day.

Only one entry per day.

Some prizes are for posts over multiple days which gives you more chances to win!

Frequently Asked Questions:

Do I have to create EVERYDAY?
No!  You can participate as much or as little as you would like.  Or, you can simply sit back and cheer others on.  The intent of this challenge is simply to motivate you to be more creative in your daily life (and hopefully finish some projects!)

How do I win a prize?
You are entered into the drawing for each day that you post your creativity.   You can post more than once a day or post with multiple pictures, but it is still only one entry for that day.  Each prize has a stated time frame for the respective drawing.  You must post on the day of the prize number for a chance to win.  And, your post MUST start “Day 1,”  “Day 2,”  etc.   The number is the day of the month.

How will I know if I won?  And how will I get my prize?
I will make a post in Facebook group announcing the winners of each prize.  I will send a private message via Facebook to the winner with the prize provider to connect them for the prize to be mailed / delivered.

I’m not on Facebook – can I still participate?
Unfortunately, for this year’s challenge, we are only accepting entries submitted in the Facebook group.  It makes it easier to manage and it creates a better creativity community.

What happens after the challenge is over?
The group continues on encouraging each other through out the year!  Keep on posting your projects, ask questions or simply browse for inspiration.
