The daily card, week 26

This was a week full of celebration and AMERICA. With our incredible World Cup victory, I cared more about sports than I have in years. I memorialized my new planner and Austin's birthday. And I stuck with a graphic watercolor theme for the weekend I spent on Maryland's Eastern Shore with my family.

With week 26 and July 1, this also marks the halfway point of the year! I don't have any grand reflections on that. But it's cool that I'm now closer to the finish line than the start (though it's also alarming, as always, that this year is going so fast.)

And it was even cooler to see that Crystal Moody, who inspired this project, is on a similar wavelength as me when I wrote that I needed to mix it up with this challenge to stay interested. Writing about burnout, she writes that the creating part won't burn you out "UNLESS you haven't allowed yourself to grow and change what/how you create." Total lightbulb moment.

As a creative challenge, I am decorating a playing card every day in 2015. More context on this project is here and you can see all past card posts here.


  1. Hi Anna! I'm so glad you left me a comment. I love your cards! It is so nice to know that there is someone else in DC with my interests. I will definitely be keeping up!

    1. Thanks for visiting, Haley! I'll be following along with you too! It's always fun when Internet space, where people do creative challenges, overlaps just a bit with real life space, where we ride the Metro. :)
