Make-it Mondays : 2012 and the 365 Project

Happy 2012 everyone! With the new year, I'll also take the opportunity to introduce myself as the new Make-it Mondays RNEST-er. Hi there, I'm Allie of Soft Shell Crafts, taking over the for the wonderful Carol of Buenahelena who will (sadly) be leaving Rochester to (happily) start a new chapter of her life.
But you'll still have some wonderful craft projects (and maybe more) to start your week!

This Make-it Monday is a tad more abstract than the usual tutorial, but is a great way to get your creative juices following each day of the new year:

Start of 365 Project
(Okay, so maybe a 364 project at this point. Do a few extra to get yourself warmed up)

I believe the 365 project began as a photo assignment (see : take a photo for each day of your life for the year. However, you can expand it as far as your imagination will take you! It can be as simple or as complex as your want to make it. Take this dude, for instance. He made 1 skull a day for a year made from a plethora of materials. As you can see, some of them are pretty intense (like the pumpkin) while others are far simpler (like the ketchup). But as you can see, this was a basic idea with unlimited possibilities.

For some more inspiration, take a gander at Make Something 365 & Get Unstuck. It's a great blog that features 365 projects from people all over the world via submission.

Of course, you can start a 365 project at any point in the year, but what better a time to start than the beginning of a new one?

Oh yea, and what's my 365 project, you ask?

Haikus, one each day
Simple and noncommittal
My kind of project
