The 100 Day Project - the first two weeks

Have you guys heard about the 100 day project? I'm not sure who started it, but I first heard of it by following the blog of Elise Blaha Cripe. Basically, you commit to some sort of crafty goal or endeavor for 100 days. It's the perfect way to practice a new skill or incorporate more craftiness into your life. One of the members of the ScrapGals facebook community started a thread and even a hashtag for all of us to share our 100 day projects. If you're interested in following along, you should totally join our facebook group or follow the hashtag (or me) on Instagram. The hashtage is #the100dayproject_scrapgals. I'd love it if you'd follow along or play along with us.

For my 100 day project, I decided to do a sketch every single day. Now, understand that I'm not a sketcher. I've never been someone who thought I could draw, but it's something I've always wanted to do. Agreeing to do this project and to share my work was really challenging to commit to, but I'm really glad I've pushed myself to do it so far. Usually, I select an image on Pinterest and then try to recreate it in sketched form. I even started a new Pinterest board called 100 Day Project; you're welcome to follow that too if you'd like. So far, I've only worked in pencil and watercolor, but I'd love to try other mediums as well.

For my blog, I thought it might be fun to check in every couple of weeks with the sketches that I've completed thus far. People on IG and on FB have been very encouraging and kind, so that has made it easier to share my work than I thought it might be. Hopefully, by the end of the 100 days, I'll feel confident in my sketching ability and will keep it up in other crafty projects I make. If you haven't followed along thus far, here are my sketches up to date. :)

**A couple of the dates are wrong on my sketches, but here they all are in their proper order -- I promise. :)















Okay, so I'm one day short of a full two weeks. Oops! I had a migraine yesterday and am running a day behind. Make do with a baker's dozen for now, and I'll pick up that extra day for the next round. Sometimes life just gets in the way, but I'm still really glad I've set this sketching goal and am continuing with the project.
