Hello, What's Your Project?

Ahhh…the never ending side project. Possibly it's a long term effort, or maybe it's something you can get done over a weekend. Whatever the project might be, whether it's a new jewelry design or gardening, or some kind of family project, it's the thing that's on your mind, the thing you want to get to, the thing that you really enjoy working on.

While working for The Home Depot I was trained to always ask “What’s Your Project?” It became a natural reflex when I saw a “weekend warrior” wandering the aisle. I loved the way people communicated when they described their creative projects — I was inspired not only by their ideas, but also by their passion.

I no longer work in the aisles of Home Depot, but I do ask crafty friends and I constantly ask myself, "What's your project?" It's my way of searching for inspiration, of reminding me to get to work on the idea that is bouncing around in my head.

SO, I’m asking you…….”What’s your Project?”…..please inspire me; I’m in a creative rut (again).

  1. My project last weekend was to make paper tiles and create an Easter necklace with them. I used some nice thick watercolor paper, painted and stained it with inks, stamped images, layered on images, lots of gloss varnish, glued on beads and flowers, and really just had a blast playing with this paper and my art supplies. Then I cut out the tiles, edged them in gold, added eyelets and jumprings, put them together with chain and ribbon, and had a great necklace to wear for Easter lunch. It was so much fun, and pretty too, and cost nothing!
