52 Projects in 52 weeks…


    Announcing the launch of PROJECT 52…

    Over on a few blogs which I follow at the moment, I’ve seen people are doing lists of 52 things in 52 weeks, or 365 things in 365 days etc… Most of these are generic lists of things to do – a bit like a bucket list or a 30 before 30 list etc… you get the idea. Anyway it got me thinking (always dangerous)… So – (on a crazy whim…) I have decided to publicly commit to doing 52 crafy projects in 52 weeks… it took me a few days to decide whether I was brave enough to publicly commit or not – but I have decided that yes, yes I am. So here goes… I’m committing…

    It will be a challenge – but…
    – It will keep me learning
    – keep me creative
    – keep me accountable
    – and will be a bundle of fun…

    So… here is my challenge to myself:
    Each week I will be challenging myself to complete a new crafty project…
    It can be crafting of any type – sewing, quilting, scrapping, photo editing, paper craft etc…
    This project has to be a project which is new to me – never tried before
    It must teach me a new technique that I’ve never done
    It must be finished in full that week
    I must post pictures (and if possible post a tutorial) every Friday for “Show & Tell Friday”

    The projects can be as little or as big as I like – but must follow the above criteria

    Are you brave enough to join me? I’d love it if you did… Join me for as many or as few as you’d like, or just join in supporting me as I undertake this challenge.

    Edited to add:  Please check out the updated Project 52 post  for more details.

    Looking forward to getting my craft on with ya.


    1. Wow what a goal…I look forward to seeing what you come up with. For me that is way too tricky to commit to although I am looking forward to my Friday sew-ins once school is back.

    2. Way to go Kat…very ambitious but you can do it!!
      Will definitely be there to support your endeavours. Can I commit to Project 52??

      Sure I can!! It will be fun.

    3. WOAH! I will be definitely there supporting! I think my goal is 5 projects in 52 weeks, ha!
      Here I am cheering you on!! 🙂

    4. Holy Crap! I was thinking you were VERY ambitious even before I read that it had to be something new to you each week. I am so excited for you – can’t wait to see what you get up to this year!

    5. Wow Kat you are very brave to do this and I wish you all the best in this journey, i’ll support you as you need me but cant really join you in the crafty part as im so rubbish at it 🙂
      Miss you sis!X

    6. WOW WOW WOW. I have neither your guts or energy to make such a public statement, but I have HEAPS of admiration and will be checking in to see how your progress it. I might be able to manage 12 projects, as in one a month, but the 52 is just audaciously gorgeous!! You sew girl.
