Ready To Get Your Craft On?

Do you have cabin fever? Maybe it's a simple case of the cold weather ho-hums? One of the best ways that I can think of to banish the winter doldrums is by making things, which is where Thing-A-Day comes in.

Join artists and creators of all types and backgrounds in a collective creative sprint by signing up and committing to making one thing (such as a project, sketch, or exercise) per day. Then, each day, share the project online on a collective blog, where you can take advantage of the opportunity to share ideas and receive constructive advice while developing new work.

To find out how to sign up, just


This contest challenges you to make something creative every day of the month of February. Just make sure you sign-up before January 31st at midnight. You'll have to document this work in anyway necessary to prove to the world that you've made something new. Methods such as writing or taking pictures or videos are all fine. Then post your documentation to the blog before midnight each day. You'll be able to check out everyone else's projects while receiving great feedback about your own work. And by the way: Each project should only take an average of 20 minutes a day, and no more than an hour.

You can register here.

Whoop! Although classes start this week and I'm pretty sure I'm going to be waaaaay too busy to make something every day, it's good to have some motivation to put my homework aside and to do some crafting!

This sounds so fun, but I do NOT have time to make something everyday!

I'm not much of a crafter, but I'd love to spend some time doing things like photography or writing.
