The idea started for me a few years ago, when I asked myself: What’s the simplest thing I could do in my journal right now? Here’s what emerged:
I realized how freeing this question is. No pressure to make a masterpiece or something complicated – just an invitation to show up and be a little bit creative.
I created this challenge to help you feel the same freedom and permission to create. You can join us for The Simplest Things Challenge is February 5 – 9th. Each day of the challenge, you’ll get a word prompt and inspirational photo to get you started. You will see how these small creative steps build to big, beautiful art pieces.

Our simple ideas are enough. There are so many missed opportunities when we dismiss our simple ideas. Western culture does a doozy on us – making it seem like the arts are only for “professionals,” when the arts are for everyone. They are a healing, expressive outlet that belongs to us all, and has since the beginning of humanity.

What is the simplest thing I could do in my journal right now?
Creating with permission to focus on simplicity is nourishing. I can slow down and just breathe into it. Drawing and painting simple things eases my anxiety. Every time I ask myself this question, it creates space for my best creative ideas because there’s no pressure.
It’s about putting one foot in front of the other and following the path to see where it leads. Usually, our best art begins with a simple idea.
The Simplest Things Challenge starts on February 5th. It’s free – I created it to help you develop a simple and powerful art habit.
