First we have Iron Craft. I did this last year and LOVED it so this will be a must. However, this year there will be one challenge every two weeks rather than every week. Much more manageable, right? For those of you just tuning in, Iron Craft gives a theme each two weeks and you must complete a project in that time along the theme. Projects are then shared in the group's flickr page.
Second, I'm going to try a daily challenge with my 365: Daily Creativity Journal. I bought this awhile ago but wanted to start at the beginning of the year. Every day has a small suggestion to do something creative. The author of the book started this by creating a skull every day using a different medium or technique. I'm not going to follow a strict design theme, but want to use it as a way to challenge myself. I'll probably do a weekly blog roundup of my week's progress.
Finally, if I wasn't crazy enough, I'm thinking about making a scarf. I saw a post on Craft about someone who had knit one row of a scarf every day to match the color of the sky. She posted a pattern online and invited others to try out the conceptual knitting project. I like the idea and since I have little patience for knitting, maybe I will like only having to knit one row a day and the chance to alter my colors daily. We'll see. Seattle may give me a lot of gray and I already have several projects on my plate...
I'll keep you updated on my progress and may drop a project or two. Are you starting any new projects this year? What are they?
