30 days hath September

From the A Frayed Knot blog:

I've been racking my brain, trying to think of ways to motivate myself to increase both my crafting and my blogging, and last night (or rather, very early this morning) it came to me: Make something every day AND blog about that thing. Remember when you were in grade school and you had Show'n'Tell and you brought your whatever in and told everyone a little bit about it? Pretty much the same thing here, except the whatever has to be created by me and the telling is done with pictures on this blog instead of in a classroom full of snot-nosed kids.

I have been rather unmotivated lately. Partly because I had either an event or a social engagement planned for every single weekend from the beginning of June till last weekend, but also just due to feeling like I was stuck in a rut. I took the first steps out this weekend, creating some new parasols, but it's been so long. This challenge seemed like just the thing.

Of course, the pictures will probably be slightly off, as I'll be taking them at night instead of the usual diffuse daylight, but maybe that'll motivate me to finally start using the light box I bought six months ago.

So starting Tuesday, September 1st, let's see if I can keep up with an item and a post a day.
