Join me for 100 days of _______ ?
Surfing the internet can sometimes waste oodles of time, but it also can bring just the inspiration needed!
Last week I was reading a post on a friend’s Facebook page, and followed THIS link… which led me to The 100 Day Project by Vanessa Oliver-Lloyd:
This project encourages artists (or anyone) to choose an activity to do every day for 100 days and then document it and share it on Instagram with the #The100DayProject hashtag.
Instagram challenges are great because they keep everyone accountable. The rule of posting once a day is just flexible enough to remember to do it, and structured enough to make it a habit. Hopefully!
Participants can choose their own subject; I chose cats because they have recently been littering my sketchbook in a big way. Plus, they power the internet, don’t they?
The 100 days has begun, and I’ve committed. Join me? You can choose any topic or medium you’ve ever wanted to explore. And please, comment and tell me whatever you decide! Or even if you can’t decide.
Cats have made their mark on my Instagram so far, check them out: instagram.com/carlasonheim

Super! I think I will start tomorrow since it’s the first day of a month and my theme will be houses.
Hello from Germany, my program for the www (firefox) send a big stop for “instagram”, so I’ll not create an account there. Are there no alternative? Flickr?
The project is a good idea. My theme will be “one flower a day”: painting, drawing, stenceling, felting, crocheting, knitting, kneading, modelling…. and so on, and so on…..:)))
many warm greets
There are some “100 days projects” on Flick’r too, Rosalind! 😉 I don’t have instagram since my cell is an antique, the flip kind, and I don’t think one can have Instagram without a cell phone… But I may be wrong… Instagram is only for cell phones….I think… Anybody can help?
Aaaahh! Now I understand. Instagram is for i-phone or so….Thank you!
Oh oh, my English is not good! ;)))
I have not really understood the first text. I’ll go in myself and think of, what exactly I want to do for 100 days.

Good idea Carla.
I have a question each one of us put our drawing in our Instagram account, and then ? How to do to see the others?
For me it will be “personages” (kids, adults) and I will start today or tomorrow like Lisa!

Hi Renata! We will be able to find your images if you use a hashtag that is unique to your project, such as #100daysofpersonages

When I said “personnages” (in french), I wanted to say “people” , not famous people as I just saw the. Definition in the dictionnary.
But I will put it like you said
That’s fine for me. I put already one yesterday with only
signed up for 100 day project. Hope i did it right. “matchessex” is my username.
doing one-liner faces.

littering your sketchbook LOL – that alone makes me want to try it
I’m happy to see you are becoming a “crazy cat lady” (like me)… Carla… hehehehhehehehehehe….. 😀 Bisous!
Carla ,Enjoy your site so much. It seems I have too many hobbies! So, I just enjoy the “eye candy”and get inspiration from your blog. We will be in Seattle the first part of June going to a Mariners baseball game (another hobby)! We will be staying at the old hotel on Pioneer Square. My question is, Do you have any of your art work displayed anywhere in the area? We will check it out and see if you do!!! Keep posting these wonderful blogs!
Only the best to you. A reader in Montana, Jeanie
Hi Jeanie! Oh, please plan to have lunch or coffee when you are here! Our studio is in Pioneer Square… I’m not showing anywhere at the moment, but you can see what I’m up to at the studio!
Thank you for the warm invitation to visit your studio! We will find you! Jeanie
Cannot follow you on Instagram, I’m afraid… I am way behind when it comes to social media.. No smartphone, no Instagram.
Love your cats! Such character. I’m inspired. I think I’ll go back through your imaginary creatures class again and think cats.
Awesome idea, Meredith!
GULP! I signed up – now I have to see if I can keep it up LOL
hmmmm…. I thought I just replied to this. I’m going for 100 days of ATCs. I feel certain I can do that! =)
Carla you are a godsend, It is now 2 weeks since I had a shoulder replacement, bored out of my mind, I can do this even though I am not on in star am, am also going good back through both your books I have to play, thank you, thank you. Penny

I think I will choose 100 days of water color!
I’ll follow you… Because I also do this project, because I follow the sparky course, because I love cats too, because I love your work too! Many reasons so! Have a nice weekend!

Carla, this is a great idea. My father died 2 days ago suddenly. So I will do a 100 days project: “100 magic moments with dad” to remember all the great great time we had together.
I like your cats! 😉
