Throughout a Year of Making, you make something every day. Nothing major – not, like, a masterpiece or anything (not that masterpieces are unwelcome). Just something. Anything. A row of knitting, mac and cheese from a box, half an earring.
Whatever your motivation to commit to a Year of Making, this ebook is a starting point to help you figure out what you want to get out of it – what you want to make, what you want to learn, what you want to achieve – and to keep track of all you make.
What you'll get:
Loads of tips and tales to convince you that making a creative habit does not have to be hard
35-page PDF updated for 2020
9 worksheets designed for printing
Links to very nifty things
An exploration of what a Year of Making could do and/or mean for you
Notes about my amazing, transformative (not to be melodramatic or anything) experience with my first Year of Making
An invitation to join in, with loads of encouragement
Note: This listing is for a digital file, not for a physical book. When you're through checking out, you'll be walked through how to download your ebook.
**Remember to use the hashtag #yearofmaking2020 whenever you post about what you make!**
Hi all. I sent this out to our Patreon members earlier today, and while I said in that note that I would be raising the topic in the forums today in a way that implied I'd write something different, I realize now that writing something different is silly, so I'm simply pasting the same message here.
This is absolutely open for conversation, but it is not open, as will become clear when you get to the end, to arguments against the basic tenet that all people must enjoy the ability to live as they choose to live and not only to do so safely, but in a manner that enables them to thrive.
I figured I'd try to start a thread to see if I could break it. 😉 Here's a little Q&A that might be fun to introduce ourselves:
My name is _____.
I live in or around ___________.
I go by _________ on Facebook.
Other places/accounts you can find me on (Instagram, Twitter, Ravelry)...
Crafty/Make-y stuff I do...
Other things I like are.....
Why'd I join?
And now my answers:
My name is Corrie!
I live in or around Omaha, Nebraska. I'm originally an Air Force kid from all over, but landed in DC, then move here for my husband in 2005.
I go by Corrie Oberdin on Facebook.
Other places/accounts you can find me on (Instagram, Twitter, Ravelry)... Instagram: corriemakes365; Ravelry: Corrie
Crafty/Make-y stuff I do...Knitting, spinning, crocheting, drawing, collaging, and I just made my first soap and uh-oh, that might be a thing.
Other things I like are.....yoga, aerial (right now approximately 60% of my brain is taken up by this - I used to scroll through Instagram looking at yarn, now I scroll through instagram looking at aerialists and my husband asked me if I was planning to join the circus), reading, not being stuck in the snow, hiking, going on adventures with my kids.
Why'd I join? I joined because I got SO MUCH out of the Daily Making Jumpstart that this seemed like the obvious next step! I work on my own, usually from my dining room table, and my regular contact with adults who aren't my husband is limited to yoga/aerial class and my clients. So this is a great way to engage with other people.
