I embarked on my 4th 100 Day Project this past April (2019). If you’re not familiar with the project, it’s a free art project that takes place online annually. Every spring, thousands of people all around the world commit to 100 days of exploring their creativity.

Anyone can join (yes, that means you!). The idea is simple: choose a project, do it every day for 100 days, and share your process on Instagram with the hashtag #The100DayProject.

My focus this year is on #100DaysofHandmade. I plan to do a majority of the projects with my daughter and am excited to see what we can accomplish in the next 3+ months.

Here’s what we got up to over the course of the project:
