Making Me Made May 2012 Work for Me
'I, Jane of LuckySewandSew.blogspot.com, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May '12. I endeavour to wear/use a self-made item each day for the duration of May 2012'
Gonna do it. Just to make myself a little nuts and to push myself. For me, the push is not so much wearing what I sew, I love to do that. No, I need an external challenge to get me to post more regularly....and I've been mulling over this type of a challenge for a while now. So yes, I'm participating. I'm including accessories and jewelry and don't promise daily pic of me in my outfits but I do commit to daily postings for this month. Of course this morningI feel myself coming down with a cold or flu so maybe this week will be filled with bathrobe and nightgown and polarfleece sock posts but it's only a self-competition. I'm inspired, last minute of course, by a conversation with a friend on Sunday evening. She's preparing her thesis defense as she is finishing up a demanding graduate degree in Cultural Sustainability which combines her interest in communities, the arts, history and the relationship among all of these. She's really pushed herself and has inspired me and also sent a message to her grown sons that learning never stops at any age. So this is my very small step to upping my game on this blog and in this creative sewing community.
What do you think of contests and challenges such as these? It's not too late to join this one:
