    I made art


    Today’s Daily Create was really fun! The task was to make a piece of art (dammit) with our fingerprint. I immediately thought of my childhood and how we would always do little things with our thumbprints. So, I colored my thumbs with markers and then made a caterpillar out of …

    Motivational Poster


    Today’s Daily Create was to make a motivational poster. However, the words that accompanied the picture needed to be our own words. I took a picture of my team after a big win last season and added some encouraging words. There will never be an “I” in “team” and a …

    Arty Blur Photo


    Today’s Daily Create was to create an “Arty Blur Photo.” This was a pretty simple task, but I wasn’t sure what would look good as a blurry photo (bc pictures aren’t supposed to be blurry). I began by thinking about lighting. The lighting in a photo can determine a lot …
