As I said in the weekly challenge tips, this was a tough week. I spoke to a few of you that had various life events occur recently that contributed to being in a funk. Without mentioning specific participants, this week's theme unfortunately matched up to what some of you were feeling. You have my condolences as that unfortunate alignment surely made for a tougher week with the theme being way too close to home.
Creativity is a funny thing that can either be enhanced or suffer from the events that occur in our lives. Our hobbies, depending on our mood and mindset, can sometimes be a welcomed distraction. I hope all of you are doing well, and thanks for your continued participation.
These weekly round-ups will go live on Monday mornings, and subscribers can receive them directly to your inbox. You can subscribe for free and opt-in for the weekly challenge tips that will be sent out mid-week to guide you.
