Day 1 -- Why

Here it is, folks, the very first prompt of our 2013 Crafty Neighbor 365!  And the question to begin all questions is, “Why?”.  Sounds simple enough, right?  Answer your why in whatever art form you choose to express yourself.  If you’re using a power word for your 365, be sure that your answer is relevant to your word.

As I mentioned before, I will be doing an art journal for my 365.  I really need some encouragement in the creative department, and I think the art journal will be flexible enough to really get me thinking outside of the box.  I haven’t disclosed my power word, though, so I thought I’d offer a little prize to the first person who can guess it.  Just post your answer as a comment on one of the blog entries.  Earliest date stamp wins.  No cheating, though…if you are one of the few people I already told, you are not eligible.

So here is my entry for today…my “Why”.

Don’t forget to upload your daily creations to our Flikr.com group.  Set up a profile (if you don’t already have one) and join our CraftyNeighbor 365 group.  Then each day you will upload your entries to your photostream, and share them to our CraftyNeighbor365 group using the “add to group” links.  It’s really that simple.

Now go do something crafty!

I just joined, Cindy! I'm so excited for 2013; I just KNOW it's going to be a great year! I've been using Project Life's supplies in my kids' scrapbook albums for awhile now, but this year I'm going to do a Picture A Day project for myself. I have my album and pages all loaded and ready to go. I can't wait! Along with the pictures, I'm also going to journal every day; I LOVE journaling, but this kind will be neat just to write about "the little things" every day. Can't wait to see your projects, etc, and everyone else's! www.ValByDesign.com Happy New Year!

Awesome! The Project Life products are really a perfect starting point for a 365 project! I love it!
