The 100 Day Project 2023 starts February 22

Starting February 22, commit to 100 days of creating!

#The100DayProject starts February 22, 2023.

What makes a good 100 Day Project?

Friends that have seen my previous 100 Day Projects say they don't know what they could do for this project. It's not difficult. Consider your answers to the following questions when choosing a 100 Day project:

  • Is there something you've been yearning to learn?
  • what do you want to get better at?
  • is there something you want to spend more time doing?
  • is there a skill you want to develop?

Set yourself up for success!

My tips for creating parameters around a 100 Day Project are:

  • Make your project something you can do in about 5 minutes. If you have more time, or are really "in" to working on your project that day, you can always spend more time on it.
  • Pick something you're excited about... something you'll get more excited about as you see the progress you make as you go through 100 days.
  • Don't make your project too complex. Something small or simple can turn into something fabulous once you've done it (or made it) 100 times.
  • Think about the tools, equipment, supplies, and work space you need to work on the project. Because I travel, I need my supplies and project to be portable. A sketchbook, a zipper pouch with tools, a small baggie of supplies, all tucked into a tote bag works best for me.

My previous 100 Day Projects

This is my third year doing The 100 Day Project. To give you a few ideas that may help you decide what to do, these are the projects I've done in the past. 

Last year, 2022, I did 100 Days of Stitching with Found Objects,

My hand stitched fabric scrolls from 2022.

and 100 Days of Printmaking with hand-carved stamps.

Three sketchbooks filled with prints made with my hand-carved stamps.

In 2021, I did 100 Days of fussy cutting 3/4" hexagons

My collection of English paper pieced 3/4" hexagons, each with a fussy-cut image.

and 100 Days of Mindful Mark-making.

My sketchbook with 100 days of mindful mark making patterns.

It's about Process

The 100 Day Project is all about PROCESS. Show up every day and do that one thing. You can't help but get better at, or more comfortable with, or learn how to ______ (fill in your project) if you do it for 100 days.

The 100 Day Project: a free, global, online art project.

Just do The 100 Day Project. I'll be right there with you.
