She did it to kick start her creativity,
and within a very strict size and time constraint.
Limitations and constraints are often thought of as restricting and stifling creativity
but the opposite is true :-).
They both liberate you and focus you.
My experience with daily prayer flags and daily doll making
is that the benefits to the creative spirit,
to the blocked artist,
to the harsh self-critic
- gifts such as lateral thinking, perseverance, and the development of a consistent work ethic -
are rich and sustaining.
