'I’ve always been one of those “someday” artists, as in: “Someday, I’ll work on that project, but right now I have all these things I really ‘should’ be doing.” Working on my own projects always felt indulgent and selfish. I rarely devoted time to my own creativity—to doing something just because it was fun!
That’s why I was excited to hear about Fun-a-Day. For a whole month, I got to work on a project JUST for fun, with the satisfaction of knowing that it would actually be displayed and celebrated. I loved that there was no judgment or criteria—AND I loved that there was a deadline! It’s the only opportunity I have all year to tell myself every day, “Go ahead and work on that. In fact, make sure you work on that because you have to show it at the end of the month.” What could be better for a procrastinating, guilt-prone artist than permission to do what you want for a whole month! I love FADLA, and I’m very proud of the pieces I’ve made. If not for FADLA, they’d still all be living in my head, filed under “someday.”' Diane Cyr
