It’s getting close to May which means it’s time for another #30for30crafting event! Yay!
Pick a craft or project(s) (new or old) and be committed to working on it/them for 30 minutes for 30 days. I like to do it in May so you can give yourself a day off during the month, if you want to.
And no, it’s not just open to cross-stitching. Maybe you’re a drawing genius or you make pottery that mere mortals weep or your quilts are so epic, people write songs about them. Or maybe you actually write songs! Or make the most awesome cakes! Or, you want to have an excuse to try something completely new. It doesn’t matter, LET YOUR CRAFT SHINE THROUGH.
So, the process is simple. Starting on May 1, post your picture on Twitter, Instagram, or Tumblr and tag it with #30for30crafting . Then, keep your eyes peeled for that tag and encourage your fellow crafters. And if it’s possible, try to take a pic each day. I know for me, it really does help to look back to the previous day or two and see that, yes, I’m making progress.
I can a lot of questions about this, so I’ll try to answer them below, if you have a question, leave a comment here or tweet me.
1.) Can I work on it for more than 30 minutes a day?
Absolutely. The point is to work on something for at least 30 minutes a day for 30 days.
2.) I want to (make digital art, write, draw, etc.), does that count?
If it uses your creativity muscles, I say absolutely. Make an app, sew a quilt, write a novel, paint a picture on your living room wall. I’m pretty open.
3.) Do I have to take a picture every day?
No. Not at all. Maybe you want to make a blog post or maybe you want to post weekly pictures of your progress. That’s fine! If you do, tag your picture (or link to a blog post) with either #30for30crafting so we can encourage each other!
4.) What if I want to start on the [insert day here]?
That’s not a problem. I know some people started early, others are starting later. Just do it and make awesomeness!
5.) Do I only have to work on one project?
Nope. Work on whatever your creative brain is pushing you to make.
6.) I missed a day. I fail.
Um, no. Just add a day to the end, if you want. Or, just get something done for the next day. You can do it!
Good luck and, as always, happy crafting!
