In the pursuit of “a life more crafty” I tried a new craft every week for a year from June 2010-June 2011. This blog documents every single week.

I started a year 2 but an international relocation and pregnancy put all that on hold. So for now, the blog serves as a record of my crafty year and the intermittent projects since then – mainly baby related!

If you want to follow along with your own 52 crafts project you can follow each week in turn by starting here.

    Wow, this is a very bold and ambitious project! I can’t wait to see what you come up with :)

    I wanted to do something like this but I thought it was too ambitious of myself. You rekindled my intention, I’ve got some planning to do now.

    Will definitely be checking back everyweek! =D

    When you started this project and I read about your first project, I got a little inspirated!

    I posted a tweet about it on Twitter and talked about it with some other women.
    We liked the idea very much, and we got inspirated to alter the idea a little, so this month we started our 12 month 12 projects!

    I hope it is going to be a lot of fun, there are between 20 and 30 participating by now ;-)

    Have a look at our (Dutch) blog!

    Thanks so much for the idea!

    Have a good time! Jule.

    Hi Christine,
    I’ve nominated you for the Versatile Blogger Award! Loving the blog and hearing the news of the pregnancy. I’m not sure if we actually met while I was at BT but I’m Shelagh’s daughter, Vix
    Glad all is well

    I posted a while ago to say how much I was enjoying your blog. Just wanted to let you know that I am once again featuring you on my email enwsletter, as the theme is “Do it Yourself” and I needed some great DIY projects for people to try!

    I have included a link back to your website and a thankyou note, so that you have full credit for your work. I think you are already subscribed to my newsletter, so keep an eye out for it!
