How many of you make resolutions for the new year? Do you ever make crafty resolutions? Crafty author Noah Scalin asked that very question in his 2010 book, 365: A Daily Creative Journal, in which he challenged readers to make something, just one thing, every single day for a year. While the book has been out for a while, I’m seeing several of my crafty friends take on the challenge once again, from working with a theme (hearts, butterflies, etc.), to simply saying “I’ll do it!” and putting a small bit of time aside each day to be creative. I’m doing it again, too – I started by bringing fabric scraps along with me, on a train ride to Chicago for a post-wedding trip, to make fabric yo-yos (see the picture above). Will you take the challenge in 2013?

    Just because u make something daily doesn’t mean you should.

    To do something -anything creative everyday no matter the medium or size will bring a lot of pleasure at the end of the day or week or month or year when you see what you accomplished.

    I try to knit or do something creative every day. Often that is baking, but usually I try to do a craft. I am hoping to try to do more interesting things as I work through my stash.
