year of making

Would you like to join me in celebrating a year of making? Inspired by the project Miriam Felton began last year and shared through instagram, I decided to join in and celebrate 365 days of making. Ok, I felt the peer pressure after many others indicated that they’d like to join in.

What counts as making? There are no hard rules!

All the traditional makings count: knitting, woodworking, painting, crocheting, sewing, cooking, baking…

I’m also including writing (preferably by hand, but if it’s computer-based, so be it) and coding.

You can following along with me on instagram where I’ll use the hashtag #yearofmaking. I’ll cross post to twitter and also add them to a flickr set.

Making is just a default setting for me, so why do this project? It’s nice to celebrate little things.

I made a wonderful soup this afternoon for lunch (Chestnut and Chickpea Soup) and I’m very thankful E could share it with me, even though I forgot to take a picture before we ate it all up. Don’t worry, I agree that if you want to remember something, don’t snap a photo.

Will you join me?
