About our blog:
Making It Daily is a shared blog. In 2013, Claire, KHP and Kristen R. launched this blog as a way to track ourselves as we tackled three different 365 projects:
Claire: Wrote every day
KHP: Made art every day
Kristen R: Ran every day
We did these things every day for one full year. And now, we use this blog as a way to stay connected to another.
Although we still each carve out a little time every week to do these things, we take turns posting occasionally. We're busy working moms, partners, runners, writers, artists and more -- just trying to make it daily.
Got a passion? Join us in making it daily.

Today, I am having severe writers block on the blog as well as on a project that is due Monday. I decided to take my creative juices away from the written word and on to a fun illustration. This is … Continue reading
At what point does a day become a bad day or a good day? Are we always keeping a tally in our minds, weighing the incremental evidence until it’s clear the scales have tipped too far to be balanced? Or … Continue reading
