I'm participating in NaNoCraftMo starting in just a few days! The idea is to do something with your craft that's akin to NaNoWriMo--something far-reaching and challenging. Setting a specific goal is up to the crafter, since different crafts work so differently. So I've put a lot of thought into my goal and come up with something that I think is ambitious, but doable if I work at it.

I am going to make a series of pieces themed around my as-yet-unnamed spacefaring alchemists universe. (Hopefully it'll have a name by the end of the month!)

My goal is to make 28 pieces, broken down by difficulty:
4 boundary-stretching journeyman pieces
8 moderately-difficult
16 either easy or prototype (pieces where I try a new technique--they still need to be functional/wearable and not scrap)

If I wind up making more difficult pieces and fewer easy ones, that would still count towards my goal; making fewer difficult pieces and more easy ones would not.

The numbers work out nicely to have a 1/2/4-piece weekly subgoal, and I'm planning to blog at least weekly about my progress. Wish me luck once November starts!


  1. That sounds like a great and ambitious goal! I wish you much luck and can't wait to see what you do with it! :)
