1000 Things in 100 Days!!

I am a chronic hoarder of all things crafty. My supplies have stockpiled over the last 10 years and they are outgrowing our house. I could destash them on Etsy, I suppose. But, I just can't find it in my heart to part with them in their current unused state. At one point, I had a plan for every last thing I've purchased. Now I just need to figure out what that is or what it could be.

So, I have a plan.

Using the things I have now, I plan to make 10 different items. And, I will make 100 of each of them. Hence the name, "1000 Things".

Sound simple??

To make things more interesting, I will use only what I have available to make the first set of 100 things. Sales from those will determine a budget for the next set, and so on. Also, take into consideration that I also paint and sell home decor items (retail and wholesale) on my website, Primitive Art Deco . I will spend 5 of each 10 days actually making the items. Then, the 100 items will be for sale for the remaining of the 5 days. For 100 days! I think I'll be pretty busy.

I could have just made the 1000 things and added them to several venues.Or, I could have slacked or given up. But, knowing that you all know about my goal will help to make me accountable. If others want to join me, let me know!

I will be revealing the first item on Friday, November 13!!!
