That's wise Heidi!  Easier to just not share your blog, than to keep track of which cards have been sent.

Watercolor resist sounds like a great way to use heat embossing, Heidi.

Thanks for the tips on ways to use my embossing markers, Connie.  We didn't play handbells at the contemporary service, but they may have sung God's not dead!   

I watched the live "Jesus Christ Superstar" on TV but I have to say I wasn't crazy about it, even though somehow I knew lots of the words to the songs.  Maybe it's one of those things that's better heard not seen?  Or it was too modern/graphic a take for me?  I was first introduced to "Jesus Christ Superstar" in Jr High music class.  We listened to the whole thing over a few weeks of class time and she taught us what a rock opera was, and how to listen.

I, too, had a hard time watching it and trying to keep up with the story line.  It was a little too rockish for me.

Cindi, I would love to hear how you do with the crocheting every day thing!  I find that when I try to crochet more, I have a hard time getting the stamping in.   I do have some small and big project I have been meaning to try, though! It is easier to take your crochet with you instead of stamping stuff. 

That is a good goal to be outside for 20 minutes a day. 

I just got myself a knock off fit bit watch, so I have been trying to get my 10000 steps each day for the last week.  I didnít make it every day, but it has helped me be more active overall. 

Iím not sure what specific creative pursuit I would add?

You mentioned that you are not instagramming your projects because you wonít want family members to see their gifts.  That is why none of my family knows about my blog! I wouldnít want them to see a card before they got it, and I am not organized enough to wait to post cards until I have sent them!

I signed up for the email with more information about the 100 Day Project and I got a link to some interviews with the person who inspired the project, Michael Bierut, and some people who have completed the project in the past.  This year is the 5th year.  If you only listen to one, I think the one with Michael Bierut is interesting, and maybe it will inspire you?

So, I sort of decided on a project.  Ha!  Actually I had a hard time deciding, so I picked two things and they are both way more open ended than they should be. ;D . My goals are (1) to create every day, even if it's just for 10 minutes, but with a goal of at least 20 minutes.  I'm emphasizing crochet.  I have some projects that need finishing, and some waiting to be started.  I figure if I crochet every day for 20 minutes, I have to get better, right?  Also, I have a few Craftsy classes waiting for me to watch, and practice.  Also, I know I will be away for some of the days and crochet is pretty portable.  I'm counting stamping too, if I stamp rather than crochet.  (2) do something outside every day, strive for 20 minutes. 

How am I doing?  Well, it is Day 6 for me. 
Outside -
I've already let the outside slide, unless I count walking the dog at night, which we do every night!  The first few days I deadheaded some hanging geraniums and cleaned up some other plants, and watered.  I hope to get back on the band wagon and get out in the daylight and make some improvements to the yard, or just pick up and water.

Create -
I added a crochet edge to a flannel, hemstitched baby bib.  Yay!  I ordered the bibs 4 years ago  :o.  I have 3 more bibs waiting for crochet edges.  Today, I haven't crocheted yet, but I did stamp a SU lavender stamp with multiple inks and techniques.  I borrowed the stamp from a friend and wanted to return it today. 

I'm keeping notes on my project in a little notebook.  I am not personally posting on Instagram, at least not yet, because I think some of my crochet will be gifts that I don't necessarily want to be seen.

I listened to the interviews I linked while I crocheted, which was nice.  I will probably watch youtube videos or Craftsy classes in the future.

Anyone want to jump in?  You can start your personal 100 days any time.

I watched it too last night, I taped it and didn't pay close attention, I was also on my computer but I guess it wasn't for me either really, a bit hard to follow in places and since I didn't know all the songs I couldn't always catch what they were saying, that was my first time ever watching it.
