I was away for the weekend, making it difficult to put in much creative time. I did bring along some crochet to make sure I did put in a stitch or two on Saturday.
However, February 1 marks the beginning of “Thing-a-Day” for me. For the past 3 years, I have participated in a group blog that lasts just 28 days each year. The guidelines have been simple: commit to creating one project each day during February. The group has been diverse and the projects ranges from a photograph or recipe to creating animated computer drawings and intricate metalwork.
My own theme is to create something each day using only materials already in my stash, or that can be acquired at not cost. No trips to the craft stores. It is a fun creative challenge that has gotten me through the dreary cold month.
This year, the admins of the site decided to retire and close TAD. I will miss the community that grew there, and am waiting to see which of the offshoots seem to take hold.
I have gotten used yo the exercise, and will continue it this year. For February 1, I needed something really quick since I got home in the evening. I decided on this little sock snowman.
