If you are every looking for inspiration and a way for you to get your crafty creative juices going, check out the 52 Projects blog. From the site, “52 Projects is a site dedicated to thinking outside the craft. It’s all about projects and project-making. Project ideas, projects to create, projects to check out, and projects to participate in. DIY projects, homemade projects, writing projects, photo projects, projects, projects, projects… And more projects.” Link.
But wait, there’s more! As if creator Jeffrey Yamaguchi wasn’t busy enough, there’s the book, “52 Projects: Random Acts of Everyday Creativity”. The projects in this book will help you expand your imagination and also help you take stock on your life. Perfect for those times when you have a serious creative block. The variety of projects are presented in a way to allow you to find your artistic side, your creative voice, or explore your self or your friends. From the beginning of the book, Jeffrey’s encourages the reader to re-interpret the projects in their own way and to share it when they are done. Some of my favorite projects are #19 Write down the story of the best night of your life and Project #28 The next time it rains, collect all the discarded broken umbrellas on the streets and make something out of them! (my reinterpretation). Link.
