Day 18 (Creative Sprint): Create Something for a Child

Day 18: Create something for a child you know.

My eight-year-old is always asking to make robots with me, so today he helped make his own Bitty Bot . . . with a Dr. Pepper bottlecap as feet and a spinning gear.

Day 17 (Creative Sprint): Snail Mail

Day 17: Create or alter a postcard and send it anonymously to someone in the mail.

I modified my Remnants postcard to send to someone. My 8-year-old got in on the fun. Who will be the lucky recipient?

Day 16 (Creative Sprint): Make a Gift for Someone

Day 16: Make a gift for someone and give it to them.

Was running low on time at the end of the day, but thought I'd do a quick sketch of the infamous "Hang in There" cat poster with a robot instead. Dedicated to you, Sarah.

Day 15 (Creative Sprint): You Can Take It With You!

Day 15: Carry something with you all day, preferably something you made, and document it in a variety of locations.

I documented Norman's day. Turns out his day isn't a whole lot more exciting than mine. I was hoping for a swashbuckling adventure.

Day 14 (Creative Sprint): Get by With a Little Help

Day 14: Learn something new. Ask a friend to help you do something using a technique or skill they are good at.

My 12-year-old son taught me how to find the volume of my Bitty Bot Norman. It's 16.2495 mm cubed. Exciting, huh? We're livin' the dream here, folks.

Day 13 (Creative Sprint): Hat!

Day 13: Make a hat or something to wear on your head. Get a photograph of you wearing it in public.

With a shoelace, I gave Norman his own "seat" on my hat. Doesn't seem fair he should always have to stay home, right?

Day 12 (Creative Sprint): Legal Graffiti

Day 12 (Creative Sprint): Legal Graffiti. Make an impermanent work in a public space.

At a local Goodcents, I left a robot made from Legos I found in my diaper bag.

Day 11 (Creative Sprint): Playing with Food

Day 11: Make something with (or about) your next meal before you eat it.

Today was a day filled with baseball games and house showings, including a random stop-by-couple who wanted to see the house without an agent. My creativity--and my dinner options--suffered.

Hey, at least I cut out the letters for "robot" from the cereal box. That's effort. Sorta.

Day 9 (Creative Sprint): Pick a Drawer

Day 9: Open a random drawer where you live or work and create something with just the contents.

This morning, I went upstairs to help my second-born find jeans without holes in them that still fit. There were a lot of jeans in the drawer . . . you know, asking to become a robot--with ripped string eyes and a smiling mouth.
