I have asked a few of my creative friends to help me out with my blog here and there during my time with a new baby and today's guest post comes to you from my very own husband Andy

Inspired by my own creative habits, I've created an online class that is structured as 30 challenge for those looking to start a new routine that incorporates simple ways to be creative every day regardless of your schedule. From simple drawing and painting exercises to easy craft projects, photography, journaling and ways to find inspiration. I have assembled 30 posts- one SIMPLE idea, lesson, prompt or project to complete one day a time. The concept is that you commit to 30 days of doing something creative and small each day (or as much time as you are able to commit- there is no pressure!) and by the end of those 30 days you have developed a new habit or at least a new understanding of how to fit creativity into your daily routine!
All of my classes have unlimited access- once you register you can create and access at any time and work at your own pace. Just know that once you are in- there is no deadline or pressure to create.

I am still creating from the brown paper bags we have on hand (see last week's post) and I came up with the idea to make simple gingerbread men to use as tags and to top my gifts. The brown paper is the PERFECT color to resembles gingerbread!
This is such an easy little project that even I was able to whip up a big batch of gingerbread men while taking care of little Lucy!
I started by drawing the outline of a gingerbread man- if you have a cookie cutter you could also trace around it.
I cut out the shapes.
I utilized the dimension of the the paint to create the look of frosted and candy details.
I created a big batch of gingerbread men.
And also created some simple shapes filled with little painted details.
Last, I added them to the top of my gifts!
