Year 2 is here – won’t you join me?

It’s year 2 of 52 crafts in 52 weeks and this time I would love it if you got involved too. We’ll be crafting together and you can choose to complete 1,2,3 or 4 crafts each month to fit the theme. You can post your crafts in the comments, on Facebook, Twitter (using the hashtag #52crafts52weeks) or in the Flickr group (or all of them of course).

Here are all the monthly themes. It’s up to you which crafts you choose in the month but I’ll also post in advance which I’ve chosen so you can follow along – I’ve only finalised July so far but I’ll update with August soon so you can get organised.

We’re starting on July 1 with Printing

And I’ll be trying:
Week 1 (1-7): Potato printing
Week 2 (8-14): Screen printing
Week 3 (15-21): Lino printing
Week 4 (22-28): Mono printing

Future months:
August: Fibre
September: Embroidery
October: Making memories
November: Gifts
December: Christmas
January: Paper
February: Jewellery
March: Retro crafts
April: Home
May: Sewing
June: Dyeing

Let me know if you’re joining in and if you have any questions. I can’t wait to get started!

PS If you want to download a badge to show you’re taking part here is a selection of delights for you to choose from…

      Hi Shawn, thanks for joining! You can grab the button by right clicking on the one you want, and choosing the option to save the image to your computer. Then you can upload it to your own blog and link back here. Does that make sense?

    Congratulations on completing your first year!
    After thinking about it for a few days I’ve decided to join in. Maybe not every week, but as often as I can.

    I think that fate put your project in front of me, just as your new ‘year’ is beginning. I always imagine to find the time for craft, but the days slip by and maybe I’ll so one or two things a year. What a good idea to try something weekly, or monthly. I’m going to begin at least.

    just the push i need to make sure i’m staying creative.

    This is So cool!! I just found you via juggling motherhood. This year I am trying to make something every week so I can imagine this will be a great place for inspiration. I will definitely join in with some of the journey. I love how you have themed the months.
