In 2010, each day for 30 consecutive days I attempted to make something creative. I hoped to force myself into making quick decisions, creating things instinctively. You can find below an index of all 30 Days in the Speed Creating project linked to all the day’s pages. For more information about the project visit this page.
I exhibited some of this project in Milan, here are some pictures.

Thank you for coming an speaking in our Lecture today at Chelsea! Your work is amazing! And I know it has inspired a lot of us to get up and give our creative side a chance to explore new options that we have over looked for so long! I really enjoyed today! Thank you again!!

Just as with health and exercise, the more you do something, the faster and more easily it comes. As an artist, this is a great example of what some might describe as priming your, “Creative Metabolism”. That is, the more you talk about ideas; think about them; and often- “let go” of them, the faster new ides come and the MORE they come, not just at that moment, but all the time. You already demonstrate such a high “creative metabolism” with your numerous ideas, that a project like this coming from you does not surprise me. Brilliant as always! Keep it up.
Thank you for your comment Tim.

Great to see you at the Pecha Kucha in Gateshead last night – inspiring in all senses of the word. A reminder in these downbeat times that a new slant on the everyday world can make you laugh and open your mind at the same time. Was going to pick out one for special mention but they’re all so good!!
Heidi,these are amazing works!
your creations are wonderfully amazing!
i will never look at grapes or bread the same way.
It looks like you are getting the attention your artistry deserves. You are an amazement.
This is a great incentive for us part time artists who are always waiting for the “right” or “perfect” time to create. We need to be mindful that creating should be an intrinsic part of our everyday lives. Thank you very much for your inspiration!
Nice to hear
You and your blog keep me from working and I am so thankful that there is at least one useful thing I am doing during the day. 🙂
Thanks a lot and I can’t wait to see more!
I have featured you in my PlayDate Blog http://jeanettegibson.tumblr.com – a blog all about turning up the speed dial and stepping out of your head into your heart through the art of play,

Definitely creative and a great endeavor. Nice way to step away from the norm.
Awesome stuff you create.
I truly believe in doing one creative thing every day. I think it should be a movement. It may help people to lighten up and not take everything so seriously. And just
think of the things!
Mad, but fantastic!
All of this is fascinating and what a clever and imaginative person you are.
I love the “randomness” of your art… genius! You got my vote on the Webby Awards! 🙂
Absolutely amazing how you come up with something different everytime! Loving the Popup Train Tray & Inflated Socks the most!
Superb work and nice ideas. Inspiring. Very inspiring.
I like your point of view. come to my webpage, maybe you will find some interesting things there (there is some stuff in english 🙂
Thank you, you have some good ideas.
Haha, I love it. Your brain connects weird things to make newer, weirder things. Ahh – so rad. Speaking of weird stuff, you should check out a really weird band called total unicorn. Linked to them in my post.
Do you wanna help me in my project? Send comments with ideas to I do in my blog feriasdearte.blogspot.com (the blog is in portuguese, ’cause i’m brazilian). Thanks and congratulations. There are many newspaper talling about that here.
