I’ve been crafting my whole life and I am seeking to challenge myself creatively. Too often my creative energy has been spent on others. Don’t get me wrong, I love handmade gifts, but I want to enjoy the things I create just as much as I enjoy making them. I want to create without the pressure of whether or not someone is going to like what I have made. Which...is why I have a blog, right? Well, at least I have someone/something to be accountable to!
I have written a grand number of projects (38 and counting!) on strips of paper and plopped them inside a cutely decorated jar. Each week I will draw a project from the jar and complete it before the week is up. I do love making lists, but this way is much more fun because each week it will be a SURPRISE! Projects range from things I have put off, to things I have never made and wanted to try, to things I’ve made lots but always for someone else.
I hope to post a few little bonuses along the way and have no shortage of ideas. I’ll pick and post my first project tomorrow.
