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 had to major breakthroughs; one in my running and the other in my drawing. I came home from teaching to check the mail. I knew there might be a little gem sitting in the package box. Sure enough … Continue reading
I can’t believe winter has not officially begun. We had our first real snow of the season this morning with just enough white on the ground to linger for a few hours. The winds are whipping too; Free and I … Continue reading
