thing a day dot com

I’m totally registering for this. What a GREAT use of the internet for craft. A bunch of anonymous people making stuff every day for the month of Feb and posting it on one BLOG and like me, on mine. I will register next week before I leave on my 2 week holiday (to get MARRIED in MEXICO!), then I will join a week late. If I’m totally loving the structure (doubt it by week 3), I’ll continue on for a week four. WHO IS WITH ME CRAFTERS? Suggestions of art projects always welcome, fellow crafter-nooners.

Recently, I unpacked the art book box and leafed my way through this book. After adding yellow stickies to most of the pages for “projects I want to try”.. I decided this is a winter project for me. Then the thing-a-day.com popped up on my fav CRAFT MAGAZINE BLOG (see links on the side).  Here’s also a few photos of projects I’m pretty excited about. The goal is to just make stuff and not focus on the crap weather (post Mexico) but also to use up lots of the fiddley bit supplies that I’ve been shuffling from house to house. It will coincide nicely with the viral FACEBOOK Pay It Forward Movement, that I got easily suckered into. 5 + projects to go in the mail in 2011, perhaps made from this book.

tile work - bathroom sink, bowls, table tops (also with buttons & glass), resin work

 

felting, fabric work, tapestries (including beach plastics & native inspired button blankets))

 

soap making (and lip balm & oil extracting from herbs)

 

weaving! (kelp baskets, upcycled materials, paper, cedar)

plastic jewelry (also LP cuffs, resin & beachcombed sculpture, mold work with clay)

Well, that’s my share. I doubt I’ll be on the BLOG very much in the next 3 weeks, other than the odd hipstomatic camera share (so fun!). So, don’t forget to go to http://www.thing-a-day.com and register Jan.21. I’ll see you on there Feb 8th ish.

MAKE SOMETHING EVERY DAY!
