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.

Friday evening we celebrated the weekend with a play date at the pool with J and the girls. The kids splashed, jumped and swam to their hearts content. I watched proudly as LP obsessively went down the slide and paddled … Continue reading
I’m in Ohio with Newman for the weekend, and again I am limited to what I can blog on my phone, so I’ve decided on another round of haiku to try to capture some of the experiences here. I’m trying … Continue reading
My masterpiece is this running route — which I’ve included in a running log before. While it’s not a traditional work of art or what we typically think of as a masterpiece, it serves as the same kind of escape. … Continue reading
This week has been a roller coaster ride and I have felt unusually vulnerable to affects of all the chaos that seems to be unraveling around me. I have a theory on this and I think it is pretty solid. … Continue reading
