Create52 Update

I posted here about my New Year’s resolution to take the time to create something every week. Almost three months later, I’m going strong with eleven weeks of creative projects down and I’m loving this challenge.

I was worried that after a few weeks I would start running out of project ideas or that, especially during midterms and finals weeks, I just wouldn’t have time to work on anything. However, I’m actually finding that the opposite is true. The more projects I complete, the more inspired I am to start a new one. I’m also excited about the variety of crafts I’ve been working on – from home decor and quilts to apparel and paper crafts. I posted about my Out and About dress here and my DIY heart garland that was part of our Valentine’s Day dinner here.

Since I’ve now made it through an entire term with this challenge, I’ve realized that it’s not entirely unrealistic to take a little time each week to work on something creative. Of course, there were weeks where I was insanely busy and only had 30 minutes to put towards a project, but there were also weeks where I was able to bust out multiple crafts. Honestly, working on a craft project every week has become kind of addicting and I’m loving it!

In the coming weeks, I’m planning on sewing a lot more apparel items as well as working on a few tutorials to post here. You can follow along with me on Instagram with #create52.
