Craftspace Weekend : Week 39

In case you’re new here, Craftspace Weekend is a blog series I share what I have made on my weekend or how is my creative space. Since I usually work on my creative project on my weekend so I call it “Craftspace Weekend”. I have started Craftspace Weekend since april but I have not updated on English blog much. You can check out the past Craftspace Weekend in Thai here.

This week I was frustrated by my key that made scratches all over stuff in my purse especially my glasses. So I decided to sew a key cover from fabric I have left. It took only 15 minutes to make which is a bit surprise me because I was trying to make once but never finished it. I think creating drawing habit teach me to let go of perfection help me focus more on getting it done.

Craftspace Weekend : Week 39

Craftspace Weekend : Week 39

I love and inspired by goal setting. I set a daily goal, weekly goal, yearly goal and whatever goal I could think of. However, I didn’t achieve every goal especially a big goal. Last couple years, I read books and blogs about goal settings. And I found that goal that I set should be a goal that truly important to me. Many times I set goal that I think it’s good because someone say so but it’s not what I actually care about.

Last week I watched Chris Guillebeau’s interview about his book “The Happiness of pursuit” story of quest and this interview inspire me to set a big goal again. This time will be a goal that I totally care about. As I always blog and reading about DIY and craft so I think my big goal should be somethings related to this. I kept that thought with me for a week to test if I still excited about it.

Then I saw Sabine’s post about her #365craftingtime challenge to create something every day for a year. I love this idea so much but I know from my experience creating habit of creating or drawing something everyday is very pressure for me especially when I spend 9 hours for my day job, 2 hours in traffic and also keeping habit of sketching a day. So I decide to make 100 DIY projects in a year. That means I don’t have to do one project in a day and I would focus more on 100 projects which I think it’s less pressure for me.

I will document them on my blog and my instagram with #100DIYprojects.

And yes, this key cover is counted as first DIY projects.
