Starting a 365 Project (AGAIN)


Back in 2006-2007 I made an ATC a day for 365 days, and that was a very satisfying exercise. But when I tried to follow it up with Crafting 365 on Flickr, I got bogged down not with trying to do a little bit of craft everyday, but with documenting it! I wasn't taking a photo of every little thing I did (5 minutes of sewing, etc), and while I tried writing down my daily accomplishment, I found this tedious (and tended to misplace my notebook). So after failing to follow through on Crafting 365 not once but twice, I let the whole thing lapse.

Flash forward to January 2010, when Rachel.::.K announced a Milwaukee 365 Flickr group. So I thought, what the heck, I can probably manage a photo a day. Some days will be crafty, some days may peek at everyday life. Some days may produce a blurry picture of a cat. We'll see how long I can keep this one up! Here is my 365 Milwaukee 2010 photoset on Flickr.

Thanks, Juanita - you take such lovely photos, it would be fun to see what you'd do :D

Fantastic idea, Carolyn - and when you're done, you'll have a really cool photo diary of your year, with snippets of your life that you otherwise might've forgotten. Best of luck in this endeavor! :D

Thanks, Mel - wanna play along :D I realize I'm not being as serious about it as some of the other Cream City folks. I like how Rachel does a little "Highlights of the Day" list for each of her photos. I just don't have that journalling gene!

Wow, that's ambitious! LOL I am trying an ATC a week for the iATCs DECK project, but I am behind...your post has inspired me to get moving with it! Wishing you an artful 2010! (and are you saying twenty-ten or two thousand ten?)

@EQ - well, I didn't say I'd be taking a GOOD photo everyday :D Your project sounds more ambitious since you actually have to design & plan! I've been alternating between the two 2010 pronunciations.
