Then, in January 2008, I really started missing creating things for myself, so I jumped into the 365 self portrait community on Flickr. I loved that project...made it 131 wonderful days before my two jobs started catching up with me again, and I made the very difficult choice to let sleep win out over my personal creative life.
Fast forward to February 2011: my friend Kim mentioned Noah Scalin's Daily Creativity Journal in a Facebook post, and I decided it was a sign that the time was right to start a new 365 project...one I would finish this time. We were joined by Kim's friend Gary (who is now my friend...YAY!) and over beverages on a couch, picked March 15 as the day we would all start our respective projects.
So here we are at the beginning of a new project: 365 days of monsters. (That's just my theme, they're both doing something else...you should check them out, they're incredibly talented and beautiful people.)
Anyway, now I'm re-learning Blogger, and I don't have the slightest idea what I will get into in the next year. I hope to use up a lot of my craft stash, while following only one rule: "Make it up as you go along."
Feel free to come along for as much of the ride as you like.
