15 Day Drawing Challenge

On April 10th, I stumbled upon this post by Wit and Whistle, about a 15 Day Drawing Challenge she created. Before you scroll down and go straight to the pictures, you should check out Wit and Whistle, because she has some of the most adorable, funny, snarky, and beautifully drawn cards on her site. The ones featured now for Mother's Day are especially fun. 
OK, back to the challenge. 
After glancing at the topics for each day I thought to myself, "This is exactly what I've been needing." Something to make me step back from the computer, pick up a pen, and just doodle. Some days turned out better than others, but that was the point. The goal wasn't to create 15 masterpieces, the goal was to simply draw. Below are what I came up with each day. If you follow me on Instagram you've already seen these, but for those of you who don't, I hope you enjoy my 15 Day Drawing Challenge drawings! 
Day 1: A Pattern - swirls on swirls on swirls 
Day 2: An Animal - my favorite owl planter
Day 3: Favorite Thing To Wear -  my wedding ring 
Day 4: Something You Found On The Ground Outside - one of our bushes outside is blooming with these precious little pink buds
Day 5: Recipe Instructions - s'mores!
Day 6: A Word - joy, my Facebook feed is just full of newborn babies and their parents beaming with joy. 
Day 7: An Insect - my own version of The Beatles (minus one Ringo)
Day 8: A Cross Section - a large diet coke, from McDonalds of course! 
Day 9: An Animal Doing Something Only Humans Can Do - wear mascara
Day 10: Something In A Jar - my wine cork collection
Day 11: A Diagram - graphs and charts of nothing in particular
Day 12: Something You're Afraid Of  - I hate spiders. Even looking up pictures to draw this gave me the creeps
Day 13: A Plant - burn yourself in my kitchen? Slather some aloe on that!
Day 14: Your Favorite Food - peanut butter, can't get enough, just give me a spoon and I'm good
Day 15: Something Microscopic - nerve cells
And that is everything! It really was nice having a topic each day, since most of the time when I want to draw I find myself staring at a blank page for 30 minutes. 
Have you ever done any kind of challenge like this? I'm thinking of creating my own the next time I need a doodle-pick-me-up.
