Q
This "365 Project" is an amazing idea. I think everybody should do this. What made you decide to do this in the first place? It's also a bit disappointing that you weren't able to get through the entire year. But I know, things always come up, and sometimes throw you off of your original plan or idea. You are a great person. I see that through this project. :-)

Thank you SO much for this.   I decided to do this project because i had recently become single and needed something to fill all the extra free time I had, and didn’t want to use that time going out to bars… I needed a new outlet.  I searched for some “self help” books and “the creative journal that will change your life” appeared as a book I might like.  So I ordered it.    It literally changed my life and I too am very disappointed I did not get through the entire year.   I ended up getting a job that sort of took the happiness out of me.   My projects were falling behind and then I was getting overwhelmed because my commitment to myself, was 1,3, 10 days behind and “how am I going to catch up”  In the book, the author writes, he actually did 2 other projects before successfully finishing an entire year. and not to let it bring you down or be too hard on yourself if you don’t “make the quota”   this eased my mind a bit.   Since this book, and since I left the job stole my happiness… I transformed my basement into a full time craft room.  I got the crayon idea from one of the projects, and loved that one so much, wanted to make Christmas gifts doing that.   I became addicted to crayon art lol   Then I got bored with crayon art and started finding new art challenges.   So in a way, I have picked up my project a day I just haven’t started back with the book yet.   I would love to even pick up where I left off because the ideas or suggestions each day would give you really stimulated your mind and creativity.  My friends would be excited to know what my project was that day and next thing yuo know it was friends brainstorming new ideas.   I appreciate your words and if you want to see more of my art or be notified when I start a new 365 project, or launch my website, I would be happy to tell you.    akamanda.kerr@gmail.com.
