This will be my third year doing a 100 day project, woohoo! The short of it is: pick a creative project, do it for 100 days. Anyone can join and any project you want to take on is fair game. Any number of days you actually get done is just fine. The point of it all is to show up for yourself, devote time to your creative passion and , for me, find some joy in creating.

The FOMO is Real
I hate to admit this about myself, but here it is: I am susceptible to the fear of missing out. That’s right, I get the FOMO. I see all the things everyone is doing and want to do them too. Hell, that’s how I ended up here ;). Luckily, I don’t think I’m alone in this. It is strange though, because in real life, I am decidedly not a joiner. I am an introvert by nature, a hermit if you will (if you know what Human Design is about, then I am literally a Hermit). But, I love a good artistic challenge, and I love doing them remotely with other people. What a strange world we live in.
It’s been a long week for me, so I’ll keep this pretty short. I almost passed the 100 day project up this year. I had a TON of ideas, but wasn’t really super excited about any of them. Also, some were quite complicated and I knew I would burn out (which happened last year). Also, I am cohosting Feathruary, a another art challenge this month, so I wanted something a bit simpler. I had given up trying to decide and that’s when inspiration struck! There was a box of anatomy cards on my desk that I had recently been gifted. ‘Shae’s anatomy’ popped into my head and….the rest is history! My project is altering 100 anatomy flash cards with collage.
Once I had that silliness in my head it was quite easy to start, and I’m glad I did. So far, it’s super fun, which I totally needed.
