Step Away from the Screen and Make Something
We are a community that understands screens are an important part of modern life, but that being apart from them is equally important. Here at Step Away from the Screen, we motivate and encourage each other to create things away from the screens of our daily lives, and then share them so we can cheer each other on.
We don’t judge. We don’t preach. We’re just trying to create a little balance in life.
Welcome to your new favorite website.
We are alive during an amazing time in the world. But life today requires a lot of screen time. Think about it. From our TVs, to our computers, to our mobile devices—it’s a lot of time. What we do is take some of this time back for creative endeavors. Things that require our hands and our imagination. Things that stir our soul.
Remember the days before we were all connected via screens? Most of us had hobbies and crafts and made things with our hands. And we didn’t do it for money. We did it for the love of creating. Here at Step Away from the Screen, we believe that human beings are creative by nature, and have an innate desire to create. We celebrate that here.
Establishing new routines is hard. That’s why we encourage and inspire each other to make the time to get creative. And we do it for the love of creating. We recognize how precious time is in life—and that the best parts are almost always away from the daily screens of our lives. (And yes, we snicker at the irony here.)
