Creative Challenge no. 1- use your 'wrong' hand


I’ve started a challenge over at my blog.

I recently found some fabulous books. Little gems that challenge you to do things a bit differently, very randomly and to have fun with simply getting messy. To find them for yourself, check out the collection of books by Keri Smith.

I don’t know how I missed her books before now, (feeling very slightly miffed about the fact) but Keri Smith most definitely has found a new fan in me!

To share the creative chaos and mess that Keri is encouraging I’ve decided to share one of her challenges from her “Mess” book with you. Drum roll please……

“For an entire day do all of your necessary tasks using your ‘wrong’ hand.”

So if you’re a righty, use your left, lefties use the right. Go on, challenge yourself!

But that’s not all. A challenge completed is all the more fun when your progress is shared. So write down what you got up to (be sure to use your wrong hand!) and take a photo, or scan it, tie it to the leg of a carrier pigeon, or send it via weather balloon – however you choose to share it, make sure we find out about it!

Just add it in a comment to this blog, or as a link to the carrier pigeon, and I’ll make sure that it gets shared with the world.

If you want to share it to this journal you’re also very welcome to. Just let me know if you’d like me to onshare it to the blog.

As I see it, a challenge shared is a hundredfold more fun!

I prattle on a bit more on the blog about my past experiences with this challenge, so if you want more head over to read it :)
